A group of sheriff’s deputies who typically provide volunteer security detail for football games at a Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, high school have decided to boycott the school after players and cheerleaders knelt during the national anthem last week.
Several members of the Bonnabel High School team and cheerleading squad on Friday took a knee during the national anthem — a growing practice started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice in the U.S.
As a result, some Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies have declined to work voluntary shifts at future Bonnabel games, The New Orleans Advocate reported.
“These kids are following Colin Kaepernick’s footsteps, and (the deputies) are frustrated with the situation,” Sheriff Newell Normand told the newspaper. “But like anything else, there are some people who feel more strongly about it than others.”
He said the deputies are simply exercising their rights, “just as the kids have the First Amendment right to express their own views.”
Look at their record LOL I would do something STUPID too to take the focus off the fact they suck LOL
The reason that these are considered kids or children is that they still need to have ADULT guidance. Even in nature you will never see a baby or even an almost adult animal have the power to make decisions. I guess they do as these are the ones that get killed and eaten. Twenty-one was the age of majority where-in you were considered an adult and allowed to vote and make decisions on their own. It was my generation that has to take the blame for that mistake of getting the age of majority lowered to 18 on the assumption that if you were old enough to fight (Viet Nam), you were old enough to vote. Since they eliminated the draft, that eliminated the rationale. This was probably the worst thing that could happen to our society and it shows everywhere now. Kids like these guys can be talked into just about anything and will do it or go along with it if any pretty little girl asks them to and I will bet that this is what started this.
Good for the deputies they are the patriots the school and the kids are the patsies for Obama fundamentally destroyed America...
Well folks-that is the future of this country! A bunch of devil worshipers who haven't a clue. Hopefully, when the NFL (National Failure League) collapses because "Real Patriots" quit spending their hard earned money on a bunch of professional whiners these kids won't have any income. BO promised change & he loves what these idiots are doing.
it is awesome when everyone exercises their rights
people protesting by sitting during the anthem
police responding by not providing security
criminals using this opportunity to commit crimes
Perhaps the police should not show up when people are rioting in the streets. If you want to be part of a riot you should expect harm to come your way that's part of being in the riot. I stay home during a riot with my door locked. I sit on the couch and clean my guns. I don't need protection from the police because I'm armed and in my home. However, if the police call me for help I'll be there for them. As far as children protesting racial injustice in America by knelling at a football game I think a good spanking at home should be part of their protest. American children of this generation are the most stupid self-centered millennials this nation has ever produced, including Kaepernick. Kaepernick is a child whos shortsightedness does not allow him to see the bigger picture. He needs to travel the third world countries. When he comes back he will knell on both knees and this time kiss the ground he was once protesting.
All black school huh?
