Protests have intensified in the United States following the death of a black man in police custody in the US state of Minnesota. But the Genesee County, Michigan sheriff took off his helmet, dropped his baton and joined the protesters in calling for "peace" during a demonstration on May 30, as clashes between police and protesters intensified.  He said everything the police did was to protect the people and that a peaceful march should not become a "protest demonstration".
