Police Lives Matter

At a rally in support of the police which took place in Baltimore on 2015-05-30, a variant of Thin Blue Line flag was used which was charged with the inscription BLUE LIVES MATTER in white, first two words inscribed on top black field and the third word upon bottom black field, both rows of the text set closer to the blue field than to the horizontal edges of the flag. This closely resembles the flag with inscription POLICE LIVES MATTER, obviously referring to the same rally. That might mean that either there were two different flags at the rally, or the first report was not quite correct and the flag actually bore the word BLUE which, not being completely visible, was mistaken for the word POLICE. Which of these is true, is yet to be verified.
