#CopsLivesMatter: Nashville rally shows support for cops

I'm sure the national media will overlook this story out of Nashville.

From the Tennessean:
Brandon Curran thought it was a shame no one was publicly banding together to show support for law enforcement in light of recent shootings, and he decided to do something about it.

Plans for a demonstration quickly formed Sunday, and by 6:30 p.m. Monday about 50 people were assembled outside the Metro Nashville Police Department holding signs saying "Police Lives Matter" and "Thank you MNPD."

"No one is standing up for them, and it feels like they don't have a public voice like everything else has,” Curran said. "We just want to stand, and the community to see that we're standing. And we want the officers to know that we're sharing in their grief and we're standing with them."
Yeah, 50 isn't a huge number, but unlike Al Sharpton and other leftists, regular people don't have access to a rapid-deployment force of protesters who can turn out when given the signal.
