Hundreds have attended rallies over the actions of New York City police officers — one in protest, the other in support.

In Sunset Park, Brooklyn, about two hundred people marched Saturday in support of a five-month pregnant woman taken to the ground by an officer last week.

Her lawyer says they’re meeting with prosecutors on Tuesday.

Resident Evelyn Garcia attended the rally to call attention to what she said was increased police brutality. Video of the altercation has sparked anger.

But on Staten Island, about 700 people attended a rally to show their support for officers from the borough who have died in the line of duty.

The Staten Island Advance reports the gathering was put together by retired officers to honor the sacrifice NYPD officers make.
