Thousands of supporters attend pro-police rally in Seattle
The day before the Seattle City Council is expected to vote to defund the city’s police department, people rallied in front of City Hall on Sunday to show support for officers.
A small group of counter protesters arrived across the street. Police kept the two groups separated.
Attendees were asked to wear blue to the noon rally on Fourth Ave.
At least 150,000 people have signed a petition to stop the defund effort, according to StopDefunding.com.
