Marvin Booker protest march on anniversary of controversial jail death (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

But Booker's family continues to call for a federal investigation -- and plenty of people remain passionate about the issue, as seen in images captured by Westword photographer Brandon Marshall. Look below to see a sampling from our slideshow, as well as a video provided by the ACLU of Colorado.
