Thousands gather for biggest pro-police rally in Cleveland history

A sea of blue in downtown Cleveland Saturday in support of Northeast Ohio police officers. It's a response to all the recent protests over police shootings. It was the biggest pro-police rally in Cleveland's history, meant to show another side to law enforcement.

"To every man and woman who wears a badge today, your lives matter," said speaker Bob Frantz.

A week ago angry protesters took over the streets of Cleveland chanting "Black lives matter". Saturday, those protesters let this crowd have their say.

But with this crowd the list of just who does matter is longer, citing black lives along with the lives of Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, NYPD officers gunned down one week ago.

"I am in awe at all of the support for those that do a job most of us are afraid to do," said Grace Leon, a widow of a fallen officer.
