Supporters of the Denver police force clashed with a much larger anti-police protest in the city on Sunday, with marchers left bloodied and brawling in the streets.

Randy Corporon, an attorney who organized the ‘Back the Blue’ pro-police march, said Sunday that Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen asked him to reschedule or move the pro-police rally, expressing concern that police officers would be put in harm’s way by the event.

‘He was agitated that we’re going to get his officers hurt,’ Corporon said before the event.

‘My response to him was that he should allow his officers to do their job and if people are down there breaking the law, to stop them. Because they’ll have nothing to fear from us.’

The small ‘Back the Blue’ pro-police crowd had gathered at the Civic Center park, congregating in the amphitheater, where a band had been playing music to them.

But anti-police protesters also gathered in the area, banging drums, blowing whistles, clanging pots, and shouting obscenities to drown out the pro-police rally, The Denver Post reported.

Scuffles broke out among individuals on both sides.
