TAMPA – The counter-protest, to the ‘Back The Blue’ rally announced yesterday, took place this afternoon in Tampa.
Yesterday, Black Lives Matter organizers tweeted, “Event CANCELLED!!! We’re having a counter-protest for that Back the Blue protest instead! SPREAD THE NEWS!”
The “Back The Blue” organizer, Kristen Krutz, said to The Free Press, “We aren’t a protest so the “counter-protest” is just another criminal assault on innocent civilians “
