ORLANDO, Fla. — After another night of tense protests around the country, some law enforcement agencies are taking a stand -- and sometimes a knee -- to show solidarity with their communities.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office shared a photo on Facebook Sunday showing Sheriff John Mina and Chief Orlando Rolon kneeling with a large group of people during a protest.
The sheriff's office and the police department said they "#TakeAKnee in solidarity with demonstrators. We share the grief in the killing of George Floyd."
