July 2 2020 – MANHATTAN, New York: A group held a rally on the Upper East Side near Carl Schulz Park to fund but reform the police, many of them holding the police blue-stripe flag. This rally was held not far from a Black Lives Matter vigil that is held regularly in the park. The pro-police rally was organized by a retired detective and his colleague, it appeared about 60 people showed up. A counter protest arrived with signs and chanting slogans and the group inside invited them into the barricaded area and many arguments broke out, signs shoved into each other’s faces, cursing and shouting, and eventually the police moved the counter protesters out.
