And now the cops are striking back against the players who foolishly protest during the singing of the national anthem.
Here’s what Miami cops did:
Florida police officers upset by NFL players kneeling during the national anthem responded by reducing the amount of security Sunday at a Miami Dolphins game.
The number of off-duty officers working the event was about a third less than usual, Dade County Police Benevolent Association President John Rivera told the Miami Herald.
Rather than 400 officers, just 270 were expected to help maintain order as the New York Jets played the home team.
As of Friday, only 175 officers had volunteered to work the game, requiring some officers to be forced into working. Those who worked will be paid overtime.
“This whole movement started against police officers,” Rivera told CBS News. “And now it’s morphed into disrespecting the flag and the country.”
Good for them. If the NFL wants to allow these goofy protests, then they can pay for their own security. Frankly, I despise how the NFL takes advantage of local governments and screws over the taxpayer anyway. That’s likely the only good result from the protests…
