Family of man killed in 2009 hold protest
HUMBOLDT, Tenn.– The recent death of George Floyd has sparked protest for victims of police brutality.
The family of Roy Glenn Jr. marched Monday near the area where Glenn died.
On February 22, 2009, Glenn was shot and killed by former Humboldt Police Officer Paul Carrier.
Carrier was convicted in 2012 and sentenced to two years in state prison.
Glenn’s loved ones said Floyd’s death gives them flashbacks to that tragic day.
“All police are not bad police,” Schrita Powell, a relative of Glenn’s, said. “I feel that they should treat people equally, even though they got on the badge and that uniform. We all are somebody.”
Glenn’s family said they plan to host another event to honor their loved one.
