There were no marches. No speeches. No protests. Just “Thanks”. Nearly 3,000 people lined the Baltimore Pike in Springfield Sunday afternoon to show support for local police. “This is just amazing. I’m completely floored” said Amanda Viglione the organizer of the rally. The event began on Facebook a month ago and has been gathering momentum ever since.
Many were holding signs of support or simple black posters with a blue line had little or no connection to law enforcement. Most came just to tell police thanks for all they do. A collection was also being. The donations collected will go to the families of 2 recently slain New York City Police officers.
