More than a half dozen youngsters and a woman showed their support for law enforcement during a peaceful demonstration in downtown Kingman Thursday. They displayed signs depicting “Back The Blue” messages.

“We’re just trying to show our support for law enforcement because they do so much for people who give so little,” said group spokesman Caden McCloud, 17. “Our officers work with our community so outstandingly and they do an awesome job.”

McCloud said the group wanted to signal their support when public safety officials are under attack all over the country. He said they staged their demonstration at the corner of 4th and Beale, knowing they would be highly visible given heavy attendance for Senator John McCain’s speech at Beale Celebrations.
