Police officer placed on leave over Black Lives Matter posts

The two groups are calling it the "Lives Matter Movement". More than 550 people have RSVP'd on Facebook. It's also about the lack of consequences when black lives are taken at the hands of police.

A teen-organized demonstration touted as a rally about "violence against minorities" will not have the support of Black Lives Matter: Grand Rapids.

Supporters of the nationwide Black Lives Matter movement are preparing a large march at the Reno Arch on Friday night. "That's is the main focus of it".

"There is no divisiveness because all of us are doing valuable work", she said.

Hart was one of many who attended a gathering in Rock Hill.

"It's considered a healing process, an empowerment process for all lives", he said. Several other officers came to help with the arrest and surrounded the woman. We have people right here suffering through the same thing. "But it's got to start with our self-esteem as a police force and understand 99 percent of what they do is what we want and that we're proud of them".

"A lot of the times, when people see a Black Lives Matter protest, they automatically assume it is anti-police, but it is the total opposite of that", Fields explains. "Anybody that lost a child - whether it be a son or a daughter - my condolences".

William Colarulo, the white police superintendent of Radnor Township, Pennsylvania, is equally opposed to the Black Lives Matter movement, which he called a "violent, hateful organization that condones violence against police". "Just like everybody else, we are human beings". He and other paramedics even went the wrong way through traffic just to get to the child. "What's his record? What's this and that?" So at this point I don't think it's voting or the streets.

"Look, we can dissent without demonizing and I think we've demonized our police for too long and we have to stop that".

Alton Sterling, 37, was shot and killed by white police officers while being held on the ground outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 5. You can back up "black lives matter" and say that cops' lives matter; it's all the same thing.
