One day after five Dallas police officers were murdered and nine others (seven of them officers) were injured in a premeditated attack, locals gathered in downtown Dallas to show their support.
Several officers lined the street as residents took turns offering hugs and handshakes as a sign of gratitude.
Atlanta Buzz posted a video of the event on Facebook. As of Saturday morning, the 10-minute clip had received more than 23 million views.
Many who saw the footage of citizens embracing the grieving law enforcement officers reacted positively to the act of solidarity.

"A community in mourning pulling together because they are good people. God be with you all, your families and your community," another user named Cheryl Wallace wrote.
