TULSA--As the crowd made their way through downtown, there was no doubting their message was heard loud and clear. The march began at the Greenwood Cultural Center and ended at City Hall.

City workers like Darren Welch were sent home early so they wouldn't be delayed getting home.
He ended up just across from the street where hundreds chanted their message.

"I mean I don't believe that innocent people should be killed of any race but yeah as you see it's disrupting our work," Welch said.

Today's rally was the second in three days that shut down traffic in downtown Tulsa. Some people say it's become annoying and an inconvenience. It's a sentiment being shared social media and across the city.

In South Tulsa about 20 people including current and former police officers came out to support Betty Shelby.

"I hate to see people come in with half the facts or a closed mind you know to throw fuel on a fire that's not you know necessarily there," said Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton.

"It's unfortunate what happened biggest thing is love love conquers all Tulsa is a great city that responded in a great way," one of the protestors at the Sharpton rally said.

Those marching have another message for people who say enough with the protests.

"I don't think you can have a rally too much I think that every human life matters so whatever we can do as a relates to life we're going to do it is that simple so when they stop killing us we'll stop having rallies," said J.R. of Tulsa.

There are currently no other similar rallies or marches planned for Tulsa.
