NEW YORK CITY (PIX11) -- Supporters of the NYPD are planning a pro-cop rally outside City Hall next Friday.

Organizers of the rally are using the hashtag "Thank you NYPD," which has already sparked backlash on Twitter. Several Twitter users have posted photos of Eric Garner, as well as stories about their negative experiences with the police department using the same hashtag.

Eric Garner's daughter, Erica, led a protest in Staten Island Thursday evening. Garner's family and supporters staged a die-in where Garner was put into an apparent chokehold by Officer Daniel Pantaleo.
