Bal­ti­more rally draws sup­port­ers of po­lice

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — Martin Weil

A rally was held Satur­day at City Hall in Bal­ti­more to sup­port the city’s po­lice.

De­mon­stra­tors wore T-shirts or car­ried signs say­ing “Blue Lives Mat­ter.”

A tweet posted by a re­porter for the Bal­ti­more Sun said many de­mon­stra­tors were re­tired of­fi­cers or rel­a­tives of of­fi­cers.

The Bal­ti­more depart­ment has been de­scribed as de­mor­al­ized since events that fol­lowed the death of Fred­die Gray, a black man who died af­ter he was in­jured while in po­lice cus­tody.

Six of­fi­cers have been charged in the death. Other of­fi­cers have been de­scribed as be­liev­ing that they have not re­ceived ad­e­quate sup­port from top city of­fi­cials.
