"We love all of them," Avery said when asked about about family of Tommy Brown.
 

Close friends, family and supporters gathered outside the Warren County Justice Center Wednesday afternoon, where they did the only thing they could think of, rally for their friend.

"Brandon was and is my best friend. I know he would be doing more than this if this was me," said friend of Bradshaw Randall Erskine.

Justice was what so many gathered today looking for, and what many of them say they may never find.

"Is it just us, or will there be justice," said close Bradshaw family friend Adam Carlton.

One poster and the word on it resonated, capturing the emotions of those who awaited a grand jury decision.

"I'm mad. I don't really have words for the emotions that I have right now," said Erskine.

"I'm sad, but I'm madder now than ever. It's just not right, and I can't believe we're going to let this go," said Close family friend Kandy Carlton.

Beyond that anger is the sadness of knowing someone she loved so dearly is gone.

"A young father of three, he was just twenty-seven," said Kandy Carlton.

Carlton says it's Bradshaw's sons and wife she worries for the most.

"She was so faithful and trusting they would do the right thing," said Kandy Carlton.

These people have waited weeks since Bradshaw's death to get what they hoped would be justice, and to many of them, nothing was found.

"I don't know where to go from here. I don't know where to go," said Kandy Carlton.

Many here say they will continue to be a voice for Bradshaw.

Demonstrators began their rallying earlier in the day.

As decisions about Bradshaw/Brown case were being discussed inside the Warren County Justice Center, those rallying in support of Brandon Bradshaw were outside.

"Justice for Brandon, we want answers, justice for Brandon, we want answers," was being yelled outside of the Justice Center throughout the day.

"It's very odd, I'm very saddened to have lot my best friend," said Dale Avery, Bradshaw's best friend.

Some who knew Brandon Bradshaw, and several who didn't were rallying for answers from the Feb. 26th shooting, the day Tommy Brown allegedly shot Bradshaw.

And there was support from this rally for both the Brown and Bradshaw families.

"We love all of them," Avery said when asked about about family of Tommy Brown.

"Tommy Brown's family, We don't hate the family. We have no hate for the family. I severely disagree with what happened, but also I don't know the full story," said Randall Erskine, another best friend of Bradshaw's.

"We're speaking for Brandon because he can't," protesters yelled.

Frustration continued to grow as the protesters begged for answers.

"We're all out here because we are mad and it's been over a month now and we don't have any answers," Erskine said.

"God is our judge and I pray that Tommy's heart was in the right direction and whatever happens I feel it be God's will to be done," says Cheryl Peters, who says she went to church with Bradshaw.

"I really have faith and have trust in our system, but they are going to do the right thing," says Kandy Carlton, a close Bradshaw family friend.
