Pro- and Anti-Police Rallies Face Off in Civic Center July 19

For the sixth year running, police supporters came to downtown Denver on July 19 for a rally in the Greek Ampitheatre at Civic Center Park. This time, though, they were met by anti-police protesters who'd already gathered at the Capitol, and moved in to drown out the pro-cop rally. Denver police tried to keep the two camps separate, but there were definitely clashes.
