Blue Army of Thousands March in Texas — #PoliceLivesMatter

Breitbart – by Bob Price

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. We decided to get a bigger venue and moved the march to this highway.” The large group of supporters marched along a 4.5 mile section of the Sam Houston Parkway. Police closed off the feeder roads to make room for the marchers and to ensure safety.

Today, over 8.000 people showed up, based on the number of blue shirts we have given away,” Sherrod said. “I have never seen anything like this response, but then, we are Texans and we don’t stand for our cops being murdered.”

Marchers began gathering about 8:30 a.m. on Houston’s northwest side for the march that wouldn’t kick off until 10:00. The moment finally came and the crowd joined in prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance and the National anthem. They heard from some police officers and other organizers and radio personalities and then it began.

The crowd’s voice was suddenly drowned out by the rumble of hundreds of motorcycles whose riders had come to join in the march. They led off the parade and were followed by another long train of jeeps, trucks and other SUV’s carrying flags and “Thin Blue Line” flags, banners and signs.

Then came the sea of blue shirts that said “Police Lives Matter” on the front and “United We Stand – Goforth with No Hate” on the back. The blue army of 8,000 men, women, children, and dogs, began marching west along the tollway feeder for their march that would continue for four and one-half miles.

People of all races and colors, from all walks of life, came out to show their support. Most wore the blue shirts that were being given away, but many came wearing Captain America shirts.

During Deputy Goforth’s funeral, a story was told about Darren Goforth buying a pair of Captain America shirts for him and his son. He intended for them to wear them together. They never got to wear them until the day of Goforth’s funeral. Darren wore his shirt under his uniform, and his young son wore his under his jacket.

Dozens of marchers donned the Captain America colors to tell the Goforth family he is not forgotten.

Other events are planned for later in the day, as previously reported by Breitbart Texas.

  1. What a pathetic herd of obsequious slaves.

    The slogan “cop lives matter” is outrageously stupid. This is like a bunch of CEOs marching down the street to protest their own pay and benefits. Utterly contemptible.

  2. Lol, a bunch of welfare collectors trying to convince anybody that their lives matter. Ha! Their lives are about collecting welfare off of the backs of productive contributing working people and following orders from Communist BAR traitors. I think the only thing that really matters is that their lives will be short. Let us encourage the idiots to all gather in one place on a regular basis.

  3. stupid f@#ks. theyll march for one lousy pig but nothing for the thousands of americans that these pigs unlawfully harrass, kill and steal from.

  4. As much as I love Texas, this is the stupidity of Texans. They’ll worship anyone who’s a Texan and believe anyone who’s a Texan can do no wrong. Just look at how they revere the Bush family. The same thing obviously goes with their local law enforcement. I still have some neighbors that insist that their local law enforcement protects their own townspeople and community members and gives Hell to outsiders. They say, “Mckinney cops protect their own. If they know you’re a resident of Mckinney, they’ll go easy on you, but if you live outside Mckinney, they’ll give you Hell”. I just look at them and shake my head. How dumb can you get?

  5. My guess is they are mostly “The Fuzz” plus the families and friends there of.
    I did find this funny though,,,,,”Police closed off the feeder roads”

  6. I wonder who financed the money to pay for all of those blue shirts. A George Soros Organization?

    ““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.””

    Oh boy! A Houston businessman who happens to be one of the event’s organizers. Why am I not surprised? They probably provide private security for the asshole.
