Annual Walk for Crime Victims in Rochester, N.Y

Annual Walk for Crime Victims in Rochester, N.YOn Saturday, dozens of residents from Rochester, New York joined the annual walk to commemorate those whose lives have been touched by crime. The Monroe County and the City of Rochester Coalition for Crime Victims annual walk remembers and recognizes survivors and victims of crimes a like.

A number of participants are family members of people whose lives have been taken away by acts of violence. Among them were Robert Vinson Jr. and Cynthia Gantt, who were walking for their nephews. Both were murdered in Rochester.

“We’re just tired of it and we want it to change,” said Gantt. “We walk to just represent that the city needs to come together as one and stop all the violence. Stop all the killing on either side. Nobody wins, each family loses a loved one, whether it’s to incarceration or to death, and were just tired of it.”

Among the survivors was Officer John Ritter of the Greece Police Department. He was on his way to work one Christmas Eve when a bullet went through his windshield. Turns out a shooter was wrecking havoc on West Webster Firefighters.
