About 2,000 protesters gathered in Columbus demanding justice for Casey Goodson, a black man shot by US Marshals in the city. Traffic was shut down across Front Street and the center of the city. Organizers placed a line of protesters at the front, primarily white, who locked arms and stopped police from attacking demonstrators behind the frontlines.
Protesters were seen helping passing-by cars and redirecting traffic routes for the convenience of the city’s people. Demonstrators chanted “I don’t wanna say another motherfucking name!” Protesters then gathered at the Ohio Statehouse, chanting “Black Lives Matter!” before continuing to march to the Columbus Police Department, demanding justice for Casey Goodson, putting signs on the windows of the PD before dispersing after curfew kicked in.
