Police lights, car horns and shouts of injustice interrupted the normally calm atmosphere of the Courthouse Square Monday, July 11.


In wake of the death of Jessie J. Mills, a Flat Lick man who was killed last month, family and friends of the deceased man were granted a permit to perform a peaceful protest in front of the courthouse. The group of 25 individuals marched on Knox Street from Union Plaza, around the square and ended on the courthouse steps where they stood, chanting ‘Justice for Jessie.’ The group then proceeded back down Knox Street to Union Plaza.
