Citizens showing support for law enforcement held a rally on Sunday backing South Whitehall Township Police Officer Jonathan Roselle, who now faces manslaughter charges for fatally shooting Joseph Santos two weeks ago.

More than 100 people, carrying signs such as “Let police do their job” and waving Thin Blue Line American flags, gathered peacefully Sunday afternoon, according to the Daily Caller.

Among those participating were people who wanted to show their support for police, people who felt Roselle was wrongly charged with voluntary manslaughter, and others who believe the victim, Joseph Santos of Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., was at least partly responsible for what happened.

On July 28, Officer Roselle confronted Santos after he allegedly interfered with traffic, according to NBC10-TV. Witnesses said Santos damaged cars and, at one point, ripped the window out of a vehicle.
