KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dozens of people gathered outside of Kansas City, Missouri, police headquarters Tuesday night to support law enforcement.

The Back the Blue rally took place in the same location that protesters voiced their disapproval of a federal law enforcement presence in the city.

Counter protesters converged Tuesday on the opposite side of the street from the pro-law enforcement gathering.

The event lasted roughly an hour and a half, ending with Back the Blue supporters singing “God Bless America” and counter protesters singing hymns.
