VIDEO: Hundreds Rally in Support of Albuquerque PD

Hundreds of people gathered Sunday at Albuquerque Police headquarters to rally in support of the embattled agency and its officers.

The  rally came on the heels of a number of demonstrations against the department, protesting the officer involved shooting of a homeless man in the city's northeast foothills.

Supporters KRQE News 13 spoke to say they were there to show APD they’re behind them, especially with the negative publicity the department’s been getting in recent weeks.

Some people at the rally acknowledge imperfections within the Albuquerque police but say people shouldn’t hold it against the department as a whole.

This is a great news story, it is heart warming to see law abiding citizens speak out in favor of law enforcement after all this is what it is all about.

It is good to see that there are still people out there that support the A.P.D. Regardless of where you stand on the incident that took place. Most of A.P.D. were not there, and did not take part. These officers are still out there risking their lives for the people of that community. Even though there are assholes out there that don't recognize the difference.
