Rivaling police protesters hold rallies outside City Hall

Two rallies with very different messages descended on City Hall Friday evening. 



One group gathered to show its solidarity with police officers. Pro-police protesters gathered to say that the NYPD does a good job to keep the city safe.



A rivaling rally also formed outside City Hall. Those protesters say a rally in support of the officers is offensive to those who have died at the hands of police.



The NYPD kept both sides apart with barricades.
