Wayne County Prosecutor issues Statement concerning Detroit Demonstrations

Detroit Protests

DETROIT, MI – On Saturday May 30th, 2020, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy weighed in on the protests that have been taking place in Detroit following the horrendous murder of George Floyd in Minnesota at the hands of police.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy stated the following:

“As my office starts to receive more information about some of the instances of violence from last night’s protests, it is important to note that an overwhelming number of people were engaged in peaceful protest. The death of George Floyd is something that has profoundly affected our nation. Peaceful demonstrations with respect for all is absolutely warranted in this situation. The point of protesting what happened to Mr. Floyd can be lost when violence becomes the narrative of the protest. I urge everyone to continue to honor Mr. Floyd by engaging in safe, peaceful and civil protest of his murder.”
