TROY -- Thousands of people came out for a protest in Troy on Sunday.

People came out to Riverside Park and paraded through the streets.


Those who came out assembled peacefully, and spoke out about police brutality and the inequity of treatment by police involving people of color.

Similar marches have been happening all across the county after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Upwards of 10,000 protesters came out to the Collar City and vowed they are not giving up their fight.

Protestors demanded immediate change in police training, tactics and behavior.
