ABBEVILLE-- Crowds gathered in Abbeville to protest the shooting of an un-armed, mentally ill man this morning. Police officers killed 33-year old O'Patrick Humphrey back in January. Although law enforcement officers say it was justified, those who knew him best are calling for stricter laws. The group met at the Abbeville library and marched to the Henry County Courthouse carrying signs and banners in memory of Humphrey. During the rally, organizers pushed for officers to have mandatory training in dealing with mentally ill people.
