A group of concerned citizens have put together a “Back the Blue” rally for 10am, Saturday August 29th in Charleston, IL. Meet at the Coles County Courthouse at 651 Jackson Ave.
Bring your family, you flag and your appreciation for the men and women who stand between civil society and anarchy.
You have plenty of time to order yourself flags from Walmart.com or Amazon.com, so get on it today.
Because you never know when you’re going to need your local police to come to your aid. Because sometimes a simple complaint escalates into vile threats…
…and 400+ people rallying past your home in a “parade”…
From their release:
What is our purpose?
We are coming together because we love our community.
We are proud to live in Charleston, Illinois, because it is a peaceful and safe place to live. That is in large part due to the efforts of our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, our businesses, our churches, our leadership, our entire community supporting and working together with law enforcement and first responders.
We want to work with law enforcement to maintain this peace and safety. We understand that, without law and order, we don’t have a community.
Police officers are an integral part of our community. They are our coaches, our neighbors, our mentors, our spiritual leaders. They have families. Our children play together.
Our police officers take very seriously the oath “to protect and serve” this community that we love. So, the people of this community, want to come together today to say that we are proud to live here, and we pledge to continue to support and work together with law enforcement and first responders. This is our duty, to maintain the civic pride that we all value in our community.
