49ers QB Colin Kaepernick isn’t backing down from his refusal to stand for the National Anthem. The San Fransisco Police Union has decided to take it upon themselves to set this ignorant fool straight.
In a letter to San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York and the National Football League Monday, the San Francisco Police Officers Association slammed quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his comments about the behavior of police officers in his defense for sitting during the national anthem.
…In its letter to the 49ers and the NFL, the SFPOA said it “will not stand by while he (Kaepernick) attacks police officers in this country with statement such as ‘people are on paid leave while people of color are killed.’”
The organization said Kaepernick’s comments show the quarterbackhas “an incredible lack of knowledge regarding our profession and officer-involved shootings, but also shows a naivety and total lack of sensitivity towards police officers.”
The SFPOA asked the NFL and the 49ers to “separate” themselves from the comments.
“While the SFPOA acknowledges Mr. Kaepernick’s right to speak his point of view and we stand by this right, we also recognize your organization’s ability to denounce his foolish statements and separate yourself from his actions,” the letter read.
