More than 1,000 people packed Eisenhower Park in Long Island, New York, on Saturday, holding “thin blue line” and American flags for a “Back the Blue” rally.
The rally, which was sponsored by the nonprofit organization Law Enforcement Officers Weekend, drew visitors from police departments across Long Island and New York City, along with community members and supporters from local pro-police organizations, the Long Island Press reported.
“We don’t have these problems here in Nassau County,” Nassau County Police Benevolent Association President James McDermott said. “We have tremendous relationships in all communities, including the minority communities, and they trust us and we worked on that. We fostered these relationships.”

I’m in Nassau County, Lond Island for what’s being billed as New York’s biggest Blue Lives Matter rally. Probably 1000 people here. Thin Blue Line, Trump, and American flags abound. Lots of NYPD, as evidenced by recent roll call pic.twitter.com/K3PyA5kpBM— Jake Offenhartz (@jangelooff) July 25, 2020
