NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A moment of peace and solidarity was captured in a photo between a Metro Nashville Police officer and a protester during Saturday’s ‘I Will Breathe’ protests.
The photo, taken by Elise Haines and shared with News 2 appears to show the two praying together during an intense time. The photo has at least 5,200 likes and was retweeted over 500 times.
One commenter said the photo to her looked as if the two were bowing their heads out of ‘submission and respect.’
Metro Police tells News 2 that the officer in the photo was Metro Officer Garren Hoskins.
There was not all peace Saturday night. Despite the beautiful moment captured in a photo, protests turned to riots. A curfew was issued soon afterward to curb the violence and vandalism.
