Hundreds gathered on Saturday in Staten Island, N.Y., to honor the New York Police Department and their daily sacrifice to ensure the public’s safety, and many attendees blasted the media for their negative coverage of the police.

The pro-police rally came a month after the widely publicized anti-police rally in Staten Island organized by MSNBC Host and activist Rev. Al Sharpton. That rally was focused on the death of Eric Garner, who died when officers tried to arrest him.
