It’s been four years now since Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the National Anthem. And until today the ramifications are still ongoing and anger from a group of people is still going on.
The latest person to bring up the former San Francisco 49ers QB is paying for it dearly. A San Antonio police detective found himself being suspended for 30 days over a social media post where he was asked when Colin Kaepernick could be killed, KSAT reports, citing SAPD records.
“When can we kill this terrorist sympathizer?” the station reports Detective Joseph Fech posted on social media after former NFL quarterback Kaepernick condemned a U.S.-ordered drone strike on an Iranian general. “Terrorist sympathizer = terrorist in my book.”
30 days for basically saying a civilian should be killed seems a bit lenient. Actually seems very lenient. The tweet that seems to have sent the San Antonio Police Officer mad was this below:
America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.
