(MOBILE, Ala.) - It was quite the sight Sunday through parts of Mobile into Fairhope. Thirteen hearses made their way across town.
But the caskets were empty. It's to symbolize the violence along the Gulf Coast. It's called the "Bury the Violence" processional.
"The police departments, the emergency response people, who are all funeral directors, who are all affected by the violence... Come together to make a statement: We stand together. We say enough is enough. We buried the violence today," said Prichard Police Chaplain Patrick Munnerlyn.
The processional was a joint effort by Radney Funeral Home and Disaster Victims and Services International.
