A planned pro-police rally in Wickenburg on October 22nd could very well be the largest to take place in Arizona according to Rally For L.E.’s founder Nohl Rosen.
“We are seeing a lot of interest in it especially since this will be our first Back The Badge rally where more than one law enforcement agency is participating. There’s definitely a sense of excitement about this one and we’re hoping many people will attend and help us show that our law enforcement matters,” Rosen said.
Four law enforcement agencies including Wickenburg Police, Arizona Department Of Public Safety, Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. and Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will be in attendance and each will be presented with a Thin Blue Line flag.
The rally will also feature a host of speakers including: Marsha Hill, a recent candidate for Maricopa County Sheriff, Selena Lopez who is currently running for the United States Senate against John McCain and Ann Kirkpatrick. Sheriff Richard Mack founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), Kuuleme Stephens, a United States Navy veteran and local community activist, and Nohl Rosen, Rally For L.E.’s founder. More speakers are still being confirmed.
The rally will take place at the Wickenburg Town Hall located at 155 N. Tegner St. and we be from 10am – 12pm. Those planning to attend are being encouraged to bring their Thin Blue Line and American flags as well as signs in support of law enforcement. A motorcycle and vehicle procession led by the Expendables Motorcycle Club is expected to kick off the rally.
Rally For L.E. has decided to pull its support of the Phoenix Police Department after the department and city leaders decided to meet and negotiate with Black Lives Matter members at a public meeting held this past Monday at a church in Phoenix. But it wasn’t just the meeting on July 18th that caused this decision it was also Phoenix Police Department’s reluctance to arrest Jarrett Maupin and his followers after two protests recently held in the city.“You don’t negotiate with terrorists and this is exactly what Phoenix city leaders and the upper management at the Phoenix Police Department are doing. There have been two protests by the Black Lives Matter terrorists in the city of Phoenix and both times Phoenix Police were reluctant to start making arrests the moment they started blocking or marching down the street. Instead they gave Maupin and his mob a lot of breathing space. Another thing that’s disturbing is Chief Yahner personally coming to the site of the last protest at 24th and Camelback to accept Maupin’s demands on behalf of the city. This latest decision to sit down with Black Lives Matter and consider them to be partners is probably the straw that broke the camel’s back so to speak. Our city just sent a clear message that the pro-police side isn’t welcome or appreciated. This group that the city is now deciding to be friends with has advocated for the attacks on and the killing of police officers nationwide. How can you possibly sit down and partner with people like that?” said Rally For L.E.’s founder Nohl Rosen.Rosen himself was at both protests and feels that the pro-police side isn’t getting treated fairly by the upper management of Phoenix PD or by city leaders. He also feels that the city and police department were selling out and putting more citizens and their officers at risk by choosing to sit down with the anti-cop side.“We were present at both protests and came to stand with the police and to stand up for our community. We’ve also rallied in support of our police other times as well. None of the command staff like Chief Yahner or city leaders ever attended the rallies or even made an attempt to do so. They don’t even try to engage with us. However, it seems that whenever Maupin, Black Lives Matter or the other anti-cop terrorists threaten to protest or march somehow our city leaders seem to find the time to meet with them. They’re going down a very dangerous road with this partnership they seem interested in having with Black Lives Matter and others like them. It puts the community at risk and I’d imagine will make the rank and file officer’s job a lot more difficult. Nonetheless, we can’t support Phoenix PD if this is the route they wish to take,” Rosen added.Rally For L.E. is still planning to still support police officers in the Valley but will focus on the outlining cities that are outside the city of Phoenix.
Rally For L.E. calls on police supporters to stand up to Black Lives Matter protesters tomorrow in Phoenix
Rally For L.E.’s founder Nohl Rosen issued a call to arms today for police supporters to stand with police in Phoenix after the terrorist and anti-cop group known as Black Lives Matter announced plans to protest tomorrow in the streets of Phoenix. The group plans on protesting at 7pm on July 15th by shutting down the interesection of 24th Street and Camelback. Rally For L.E. is asking all those that support the police and that care about their community to counter-protest the action.
“We can’t allow the chaos that happened last Friday night to happen again in Phoenix. It’s time we stood in large numbers against the Black Lives Matter and the other terrorists that are hoping to tear down our city and harm our police officers. Tomorrow the community as a whole has a chance to stand up for it and finally give the anti-cop terrorists their walking papers. We will stand up to help ensure both the community and our police officers are kept safe,” Rosen said.
Rally For L.E. is asking for those that attend the counter-protest to bring Thin Blue Line and American flags as well as signs that support the police. It’s being suggested that the counter-protest be kept peaceful and those that are armed follow all state laws.
Police supporters in Phoenix pay tribute to fallen and wounded police officers of the Dallas tragedy
Yesterday in Phoenix, police supporters gathered in front of Phoenix Police Department’s Desert Horizon precinct station to remember the fallen and wounded officers of the Dallas tragedy. The National Anthem was played, the Pledge Of Allegiance said and a prayer was given by Rabbi Pinchas Allouche of Scottsdale’s Congregation Beth Tefillah. People also brought Thin Blue Line and American flags as well as signs of support for police.
Event organizers Nohl Rosen and Diane Faith also spoke about the importance of supporting our police officers and how we need to thank them for their service and stand by them in both the good and bad times. All those attending also lit candles in memory of the Dallas and DART police officers that were killed. There was also a video presentation by Aaron Leach who also provided music for the festivities. It was a peaceful and respectful ceremony which was also attended by members of the Phoenix Police Department. Thank you to all that attended.
As a part of Rally For L.E.’s initiative to support the police called Operation Thin Blue Shield, the movement is expected to have the backs of our law enforcement when Presidential candidate Donald Trump returns to Phoenix for a rally on June 18th. The public rally will be held at Arizona Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum located at 1826 W. McDowell Rd in Phoenix which will begin at 4pm but doors will open at 12pm. Rally For L.E. is already signing up people to be a part of a detail that will back up police should they need help dealing with unruly or violent anti-cop and anti-Trump protesters. There is an event page on Facebook for those that are interested in being a part of it or if you wish to support it. You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/events/269536310073249.
We’re hopeful that the Trump event will be a peaceful one and that no violence happens. We’re asking all those wanting to be a part of our detail to follow all applicable laws. Also, please stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. The temperature is expected to be between 118 – 120 degrees so please plan accordingly.
On April 2nd, supporters of law enforcement joined Rally For L.E. at the Back The Badge rally as we came out to support the Chandler Police Department and the fine work they do in keeping the community safe. Rally For L.E. presented a Thin Blue Line flag to the department and we also had Dr. Kelli Ward who’s running for the United States Senate against John McCain speak and talk about the importance of backing our law enforcement. It was a great day to rally and we’d like to thank the Chandler Police Department for their service. If you missed the rally watch the video above to see what took place. Another Back The Badge rally will be announced soon.
Thank you to everyone that came out in support of Mesa Police this past Saturday as we held our 4th Back The Badge rally. The rally kicked off with a motorcycle procession, the Pledge Of Allegiance, a poem, a speech by United States Senate candidate Kelli Ward, and a prayer. There was also a tailgate party as well. Our next, Back The Badge Rally will happen on April 2nd at Chandler Police Headquarters located at 250 E Chicago St and will begin at 10am. Please keep checking the website as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
One bill making it’s way through the Arizona State Legislature could help law enforcement better deal with those anti-cop individuals that use their smart phone cameras and other video recording devices to antagonize police officers and interfere with them doing their duty. Sponsored and drafted by Arizona Senator John Kavanagh the bill called SB 1054 would make it illegal to video record a police officer within 20 feet or less while they’re in the process of doing their duty. Part of it reads:
“It is unlawful for a person to knowingly make a video recording of law enforcement activity, including the handling of an emotionally disturbed person, if the person making the video recording does not have the permission of a law enforcement officer and is within twenty feet of where the law enforcement activity is occurring.”
While bill’s opponents are trying to claim that this bill is unconstitutional, Rally For L.E.’s leader Nohl Rosen is speaking out in support of the bill and says it doesn’t violate the United States Constitution in his eyes and that it’s a positive first start in protecting our law enforcement from those that use cameras to try and attack police officers publicly.
“We need to do what we can to support our local police and protect them from these anti-cop terrorists which will use their smart phone and tablet cameras to try and antagonize police officers in order to make a name for themselves on social media. Often times they will interfere with police officers while they’re detaining or arresting a suspect and get way to close to them in order to add fuel to the fire. The last thing a police officer needs is some citizen that doesn’t like law enforcement sticking a camera in their face while they’re in the process of doing their duty,” Rosen said.
Rosen added that this bill may not be perfect but it’s a positive first step in supporting law enforcement and hopes more supporters of the police will get behind it. He also encourages the public to read the bill and make their own decision on whether or not they should support it.
