  • Rally For Law Enforcement to boycott Starbucks after 6 Tempe PD officers were asked to leave store

    Rally For Law Enforcement has announced that it will boycott Starbucks nationwide after 6 Tempe police officers were asked to leave one of their establishments because their presence made another patron uncomfortable. Rally For Law Enforcement’s founder Nohl Rosen who himself is a business owner found this move by Starbucks disrespectful especially since the officers not only risk their lives to protect the community but also were veterans who served their country. The incident happened on July 4th, 2019 at the Starbucks near Scottsdale Rd and McKellips.

    “These officers deserve our thanks for serving the community and laying their life on the line to protect it. Asking these heroes to leave because one patron had a problem with law enforcement is pretty disturbing. These officers were also patrons, so shouldn’t they have just as much right to be there as that other patron did? This is pretty much political correctness at it’s worst and we will stand with the officers. There is one silver lining, perhaps this will give a financial boost to a local coffee house which does support police,” Rosen said.

    It’s unknown how long the boycott will last but Rally For Law Enforcement is hopeful that other pro-police supporters and groups will join it as well. While we have heard that Starbucks has offered an apology to Tempe PD, similar incidents have happened before, not just with law enforcement but with veterans, military and others. We are encouraging our supporters to patron local coffee houses that do support our law enforcement and other first responders. Thank you all for your support.


  • Rally For Law Enforcement speaks out against proposed citizen review board of Phoenix PD

    Rally For Law Enforcement and its founder Nohl Rosen are speaking out ahead of time against a proposed citizen review board which is expected to be discussed at a special Phoenix City Council policy meeting announced by Mayor Kate Gallego. The meeting will take place on July 2nd at 2:30pm at the Orpheum Theatre which is located at 203 W Adams St in Phoenix.

    “This proposed citizen oversight committee is just another way for the anti-police agitators to get their own people on as members and to tie the hands of police officers in order to prevent them from their job. The Phoenix Police Department already has a review board and there are citizens that are already sitting on it so another one isn’t needed. This idea of a citizen review board in addition to what’s already in place is obviously being driven by politics and caving into what the agitators want. Police officers have enough to worry about without having to be concerned that they’ll be fired because they followed their training but didn’t do what’s politically correct. Let the officers do their job,” Rosen said.

    Rally For Law Enforcement members and other pro-police supporters will be at the July 2nd meeting voicing their support for Phoenix PD. If you are unable to attend the meeting, we’re asking our members and other police supporters to email the Mayor of Phoenix and the City Council to urge them to vote no on the proposed citizen oversight committee. You can email them at the following address: https://www.phoenix.gov/mayorcouncil.
     


  • Rally For Law Enforcement and pro-police supporters to speak out at next Phoenix City Council meeting in support of police

    Rally For Law Enforcement is now mobilizing pro-police supporters that plan on attending the next Phoenix City Council meeting to speak out in support of Phoenix PD and the officers who stopped Draven Ames and Lesha Harper after it was reported that they shoplifted from a store. Protesters that support the couple tried to take over the last Phoenix City Council meeting on June 19th shouting down anyone including Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio who voiced his support for Phoenix PD. Nohl Rosen, the founder of Rally For Law Enforcement has also spoken out in support of the officers and plans to attend the next meeting which is scheduled for June 26th.
     
    “You’ve heard from the anti-cop side, now it’s time to hear from our side that supports the police, so you can expect us to be at the next meeting to testify in support of Phoenix PD. We don’t feel that the officers did anything wrong and followed proper procedure. They’re clearly being railroaded here and we’ve heard from police supporters from across the country who also feel the same way. I myself certainly agree with him that no excessive force was used. You also can’t base all the facts on an un-vetted viral video which only showed a brief moment of what happened. You have to look at all the facts. Nonetheless, you can expect plenty of police supporters to be at the next meeting,” said Rosen.  

    The Phoenix City Council meetings are held at 200 W. Jefferson and they start at 2:30pm. We will try to keep everyone up to date on any changes. Thank you for your support.


  • Phoenix PD releases store video showing couple and their kids stealing from store after they file $10 million lawsuit claiming cops acted inappropiately

    Phoenix PD has now released video showing what led up to the May 27th arrest of two suspects who are suing the city of Phoenix for $10 million claiming their civil rights had been violent. The local and national media are trying to paint the couple identified as Dravon Ames and Iesha Harper as innocent people who did nothing wrong. The couple claims that Phoenix PD officers were the aggressors and had violated their civil rights and acted inappropriately. A video released by Phoenix PD seems to indicate that couple did bring their children into a store and were seen on camera stealing items.

    One thing not being reported by the media is that Rally For Enforcement has stated its support of the officers as well as other pro-police supporters.

    Phoenix PD released a fact sheet on the incident which took place on May 27th. It was as follows:

    CURRENT FACT SHEET SUMMARY OF PHOENIX POLICE RESPONSE TO SHOPLIFTING INCIDENT RESULTING IN OFFICERS BEING REMOVED FROM THE STREET AND ASSIGNED TO DESK DUTY

    Date: May 27, 2019 at approximately 11:17 a.m.
    Location: 1600 N. 36th Street

    -On May 27, Phoenix Police received a call for assistance from the store manager to report a shoplifting inside the store.

    -During the investigation the store manager alerted the officer to a second shoplifting in progress and the people from that incident were now getting into a vehicle in the parking lot.

    -As the officer approached the vehicle, he observed female #1 drop an item before getting in the car, then the vehicle quickly reversed and drove away.

    -Moments later the vehicle stopped at McDowell Road, female #1 exited the vehicle and the car again drove away. The officer learned the female had three misdemeanor warrants for her arrest and was booked for the outstanding warrants.

    -The vehicle was located a short distance away and stopped in an apartment complex about a mile away. Officers arrested the male driver and a second female.

    -The male driver told an officer he shoplifted a package of underwear from the store and threw them out the window, and in addition he was driving on a suspended license.

    -Female individual #2 told an officer that her aunt (female #1) and child went into the store together. Female #2 also said she saw her child walk out of the store with a doll and she believed they had stolen it because they didn’t have any money. Also, the female said she heard the officer in the parking lot tell the driver to stop the car several times, but he didn’t.

    -The store manager declined to prosecute, so no one was arrested for shoplifting.

    -On June 11, Phoenix Police was made aware of video taken by residents at the apartment complex showing extremely offensive and unprofessional language and actions by officers during the arrests. That same day, Police Chief Jeri Williams requested the officers be removed from the street and assigned to desk duty while an investigation takes place.

    -On June 14, the Police Department provided to the media the police report of the original call to the local business on May 27, 2019. On the same day, Chief Williams shared a videotaped message with the community expressing how disturbing the video was, her expectations of employees, the need to give due diligence for the investigation and her support of the men and women of the department who faithfully protect and serve the community.”

    There are now reports that Ames is facing charges from a 2018 incident where he assaulted a Tempe PD officer. We will try to post more about this but the latest info has been posted to Rally For Law Enforcement’s Facebook page.

  • Pro-police movement proposes armed volunteers patrol school grounds to protect the students

    The pro-police movement Rally For Law Enforcement is offering up a solution to protect schools and students from becoming the latest target of a mass shooting by allowing armed volunteers to patrol the school grounds while classes are in session.
     
    “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. The left’s plan of gun free zones hasn’t worked. We have veterans, retired law enforcement and responsible citizens in our ranks that carry a firearm and they could be used to protect the schools and the students. This would be strictly on a volunteer basis but it does help solve the issue of protecting the schools and keeping the student’s safe,” said Rally For Law Enforcement’s founder Nohl Rosen.
     
    Rosen said it takes 5 minutes or longer for the police to respond to an active shooting scene and that an armed volunteer patrolling the school or a teacher that’s armed could respond in seconds to take down a shooter.
     
    “Many teachers carry firearms and have training using them and so do many of our members. The left has made this about blaming the guns rather than putting the blame on the person that uses the tool do harm. Firearms can save lives but they’re only focused on the minority that uses them to take lives purposely. More people have been killed by those using knives, driving cars, taking drugs and smoking cigarettes than they have with firearms. This isn’t a gun issue, it’s about what’s going on in the person’s heart and mind. Evil is evil and a person can kill just as easily using a car than they can using a firearm. Banning a certain firearm to try and solve the issue won’t accomplish anything and only punishes those who do use it responsibly,” Rosen added.

    If anyone is interested in volunteering please feel free to let us know at info@rallyforle.com


  • Rally For Law Enforcement offers to protect churches and synagogues while services are in session

    After the tragedy that hit a church in Sutherland Springs, TX where 26 people were killed and 20 people were wounded by a lone gunman on November 5th, Rally For Law Enforcement’s founder has put forth an offer to have its members that carry a firearm to help guard churches and synagogues nationwide from more of these types of attacks.
     
    “Many of our members carry a firearm including myself, so we’re offering to stand watch while houses of worship like churches and synagogues conduct their services. What happened in Texas can happen anywhere but this was a house of worship and a clear assault on Christianity and God. Hopefully, we can work with the leaders of the congregations to help ensure that their services and events are kept safe and that people are able to worship and praise God in peace,” said Rally For Law Enforcement’s founder Nohl Rosen.
     
    Rally For Law Enforcement is offering this service for free and all the leaders of the congregation (pastor, Rabbi, etc) would just simply have to make the request. Rosen says this will be volunteer based and he’s hopeful many people will support this operation.
     
    “The ideal situation would be for the leaders of the congregations to encourage their members to carry into the church and synagogues. Imagine how many lives could be saved if a member of the congregation carried their firearm into the church or a synagogue? It might make the bad guys think twice about hitting a house of worship if they knew that one or members of the members of the flock was armed. Firearms can save lives and have saved lives when good citizens that carry are willing to step in and stop the bad guys,” Rosen added.
