In 2016, Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice in America. It’s been four years but the anger towards Kaepernick by a large percentage of people is still at an all-time high.
The latest person to bring up the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is a San Antonio police detective, who has found himself in some trouble after a post on social media about killing Kaepernick.
According to KSAT news:
A San Antonio Police detective was suspended 30 days this summer after making a social media post in which he called Colin Kaepernick a terrorist sympathizer and asked when the former National Football League quarterback could be killed, SAPD records confirm.
A screenshot of the early January post from Detective Joseph Fech was sent to the KSAT 12 Defenders, who then asked SAPD officials if they were aware of it.
Kaepernick, who played six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers, has not played in an NFL game since 2016.
