When you kill a Texas cop, you get a Texas-sized response. How much of this do you think the mainstream media will cover?
HOUSTON, Texas – A thin blue line of police supporters stretched for over a mile along a Texas highway on Saturday as over 8,000 Texans took to the streets. The marchers gathered in the #PoliceLivesMatter parade in memory of murdered Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth and in support of all police.
“Enough is enough,” said David Sherrod, a Houston businessman and one of the event’s organizers. “You aren’t going to execute cops in Houston. We won’t stand for it.”
Sherrod said the idea for the march began when he and a few friends were discussing a way to make a statement after the murder of Deputy Goforth. “We planned on getting a few hundred people to march down Allen Parkway to City Hall,” Sherrod explained.
“The next thing we knew,” he said, “thousands were posting on Facebook that they wanted to join in.

Police closed off the feeder roads to make room for the marchers and to ensure safety.
