TN Police Officer Prays With Protester During Rally Over Death of George Floyd — ‘It Was Very Touching’ — 2020


The image of a police officer and protester in Nashville praying together has inspired many who are searching for hope during these troubling times.

During a peaceful protest on Saturday in Tennessee, Officer Garren Hoskins saw a demonstrator sharing his Christian faith with the crowd.

“My duty at that time was to hold the line and create a barrier around the central precinct as the peaceful protest continued,” Hoskins said. “There was an individual standing in front of me. He was preaching, holding a sign and he had his mask on.”

“As he was talking, he was quoting Bible verses. I’m personally a Christian and what he was saying is the same things I was raised on and what I believe,” the officer added.
