Local Cops Send Message to 49ers and Kaepernick

NFL San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has made a name for himself, but not through any stellar play as a football player.  His crybaby, snowflake, bullcrap decision not to stand during the National Anthem, and wearing anti-cop socks, is what got him in the news.  In response, local police have threatened to stop working San Francisco 49ers games in response to Colin Kaepernick sitting during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial injustice.

It's an easy decision. You don't think the police can protect you, then they won't. Adios, and good luck.

The Santa Clara police contacted the 49ers football organization by letter, and in that letter it says that officers won’t work at the stadium if the team doesn’t “take action” against Kaepernick over his protest. Local television station KNTV said that about 70 Santa Clara police officers work eight home games per year.

Kaepernick’s decision to sit for the national anthem and to wear socks in practice depicting pigs as cops has let everybody know where he stands, and he will be standing virtually alone as a result.

The 49ers released a statement in support of Kaepernick’s freedom of expression as soon as the backlash started to begin.

"In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem,” the organization said.
