Hundreds of people marched through downtown Bakersfield to support the families of crime victims during the 6th annual Victims Rights March. Cynthia Robertson’s son, Darrell, was gunned down in 2015, and she thinks speaking with others helps her heal. “It’s good to be able to be out with people who are dealing with the same thing that you’re dealing with, so it helps for that. It’s bittersweet, it’s sad, it’s a good feeling also.” Last night’s march from the Liberty Bell to Mill Creek Park also marks National Crime Victims Rights week.
