December 2020 – Since May, protests and riots have brought death, arson, and looting to many American cities. Lawless mobs often scream anti-police sentiments, assault law officers, and demand defunding police.
Conversely, some cities have rallied to show their appreciation and support.
For example, Mansfield, Massachusetts, recently held a “Back the Blue” event, one of many that have been popping up around the country.
The events have increased in popularity and have been held in various states, including New Mexico, Virginia, Florida, California, New York, Tennessee, and Washington.
“Back the Blue” events are part of an Act for America (actforamerica.org) campaign that assists local communities in organizing events to support their local law enforcement.
