One of New York City’s finest was assaulted Wednesday during a peaceful prayer march across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Terence Monahan, chief of Department of the New York Police Department, was injured while trying to protect the prayer marches from rioters of the Black Lives Matter group. The department chief had been escorting the marchers along with other NYPD members across the bridge to City Hall, when the attack occurred.

It should be noted that last month Monahan tried appeasing the BLM rioters by kneeling down with them in a show of support.  Wednesday, however, was a different day, and as they saying goes ‘no good deed goes unpunished.’

While it’s unfortunate Monahan and other officers were injured, the Prayer March, which was organized by local ministers in and around New York City, said that the purpose of their march was to show support for the police and counter the negative marches of BLM that has plagued New York City with violence and chaos in recent days.  Below are pictures and videos of both marches.

During the march Wednesday, prayer marchers prayed for New York City, the police and America.  Many of the attendees of the prayer said they support the men and women in Blue and were against violence. One of the speakers at the event said that Black Lives Matter but black must first believe it themselves end the violence.
