Black Lives Matter, Black Panthers take part in Thomasville rally – Times-Enterprise

THOMASVILLE Throngs of people took part in a rally on Magnolia Street on Monday evening.

The rally was in response to a Thomasville-Thomas County drug squad shooting that claimed the life of a suspect.

Marchers moved to the Historic Courthouse and the Thomas County Judicial Center and down Madison Street.

Chants of “no justice, no peace, hands up, dont shoot, among others rang through the downtown Thomasville Streets.

The march concluded at Magnolia Street.
