A Back the Blue rally has been held in Danbury. Sgt. John Krupinsky, president of the Connecticut State Fraternal Order of Police, has been outspoken against the police accountability bill signed by Governor Lamont last month. Speakers included Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and Police Chief Patrick Ridenhour. The Newstimes reports that the organization called Back the Blue CT promoted Saturday's event, including with a batter from Act for America, considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be an anti-Muslim hate group. Back the Blue says their organization is not affiliated with Act for America and that it was an independent, community-led event. According to Act for America’s website, Back the Blue is an Act for America activism campaign to build support for officers.
