Rally supporting police draws scores to downtown Kenosha
August 31, 2020
KENOSHA, Wis. - Scores of police supporters gathered Sunday in downtown Kenosha where protesters have been demonstrating against police brutality since the shooting of Jacob Blake last weekend.
Some attending the rally in the Wisconsin city wore "back the blue" shirts. Others carried American flags. They applauded when law enforcement vehicles rolled by.
"With the things that they face on a daily basis, they need that little extra push of love and to show that they are needed," said Jennifer Peyton, 44, who attended the rally. "I mean, if you went in to work every day, and you were told that you were bad or had things thrown at you, I think it would weigh on your psyche a little bit, too."
