Hey, Kaepernick! Those pig socks didn’t go over so well. What are you going to do if the 70 cops that staff the 49ers games do THIS?
Kaepernick’s continuing commitment to not stand for the anthem has pissed off a LOT of fans.
Now it’s his comments that are really pissing off some Law Enforcement officers.
Speaking after the game, he [Kaepernick] said: ‘I’m not anti-American. I love America. I love people. That’s why I’m doing this.
‘I want to help make America better, and I think having these conversations helps everybody have a better understanding of where everybody is coming from.
‘We have a lot of people that aren’t treated equally, that aren’t given equal opportunities. Police brutality is a huge thing that needs to be addressed. There are a lot of issues that need to be talked about.’
Members of the police association took issue with that statement, alongside socks Kaepernick wore to practice several weeks ago covered in pigs wearing police hats.
The association, which provides around 70 staff at every game, said that if Niners staff ‘fail to take action to stop this inappropriate workplace behavior’ then ‘it could stop police officers working at your facilities.’
Their letter, seen by NBC Bay Area, added: ‘The board of directors of the Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association has a duty to protect its members and work to make all of their workings environments free of harassing behavior.’

Kaepernick has said that he loves his country, despite his refusal to stand for the anthem, even at the Military Appreciation Night against the Chargers.
He has also committed to donate $1M to ‘help the country get better’.
Here’s the ‘Million Dollar Question’: Will Kaepernick shell out of his OWN money for private security for the games because HE is the reason the 70 officers may no longer be present?
