Nearly 100 NYPD Officers Rally In Support Of Colin Kaepernick

They showed up wearing shirts that read “ImWithKap.”

It’s been nearly a year since Colin Kaepernick began his protests during the national anthem at football games. And now, some members of the New York Police Department are showing their support for the former 49ers quarterback’s fight against racial injustice and police brutality.

Nearly 100 active and retired officers, mostly cops of color, wearing black shirts reading ”#ImWithKap” rallied in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, The New York Timesreports. Sergeant Edwin Raymond, who organized the event, told The Times that he was planning this event prior to the Charlottesville incident, but the violence made the need for the event even more pressing.

During the event, speakers related the backlash Kaepernick faced for his demonstration to the recent violence in Charlottesville sparked by a white supremacist rally. Kaepernick’s non-profit, Know Your Rights Camp, shared photos from the event on Twitter.

 

“As members of law enforcement, we can confirm that the issues he is saying exist in policing, and throughout the criminal justice system, indeed exist,” Raymond said at the rally.

City Councilman Jumaane D. Williams, a speaker at the rally, said more cops should be speaking out about accountability, per NY1.

“All of the people behind me risk their lives, so to speak, to protect folks, and they are standing with Kaepernick because they understand how important it is to push back on the structure,” he said.

Retired officer Frank Serpico, whose campaign against corruption in the police department was the subject of the 1973 film “Serpico,” was also in attendance. The 81-year-old told the Associated Press that he felt moved to support Kaepernick.

“He’s trying to hold up this government up to our founding fathers,” he said. “Until racism in America is no longer taboo, we own up to it, we admit it, we understand it and then we do what we have to do to solve it, unfortunately we’re going to have these issues.”

Williams told The Times that Kaepernick ― who still hasn’t been signed by an NFL team ― making this stance doesn’t mean he’s anti-police.

“People use the terms ‘antipolice,’ ‘unpatriotic,’ to scare people from stepping forward,” he told the Times after the rally. “It takes courage to say, ‘I’m going to do it anyway, because it’s what’s right.’”

Will Black Folks Boycott the NFL Over Kaepernick Blackballing?

Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins – Both teams needing pro-level quarterbacks. Both teams taking a pass on hiring free agent Kaepernick for “political reasons”…

Miami even went so far as to hire Jay Cutler…Who couldn’t hit a receiver on a fade route with somebody hand carrying the ball to the receiver. A real 4 and 12 decision there.

Sounds like a boycott is in order…

Don’t Nobody Want the FBI Job With The Crooked Boss

Who wants to work for a criminal boss, who is going to fire you for doing your job? Potential candidates are running for the hills instead of working for the Chumph. WTF wants to work for America’s Saddam Hussein?

Following advice, potential FBI chiefs steer clear of job under Trump

The Trump administration’s search for a new FBI director hit roadblocks on Tuesday when two high-profile potential candidates, a moderate judge and a conservative senator, signaled they did not want the job.

Advisers to Judge Merrick Garland and U.S. Senator John Cornyn of Texas told Reuters they discouraged them from leading the Federal Bureau of Investigation, cautioning that they would be leaving important, secure jobs for one fraught with politics and controversy.

The advisers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the new FBI director would have little job security and heightened scrutiny by political observers following President Donald Trump’s abrupt firing of James Comey on May 9.

Garland and Cornyn distancing themselves from the selection process just three days before Trump has said he may make a decision, points to the difficulties the White House has in filling the FBI post amid turmoil in the administration.

Trump’s firing of Comey, the man in charge of an investigation into possible collusion between 2016 election campaign associates and the Russian government, outraged many lawmakers, including some Republicans.

Garland, the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, “loves his job and is not interested in leaving the judiciary,” said one source familiar with the judge’s thinking.

Cornyn said in a statement that he had informed the White House that “the best way I can serve is continuing to fight for a conservative agenda in the U.S. Senate.”

White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters on Tuesday that an announcement on FBI director was still possible before Trump leaves on his first foreign trip on Friday. He said the U.S. Department of Justice was still interviewing candidates.

Several Republican senators had promoted Garland even though they had refused to give him a hearing when Republican Trump’s predecessor President Barack Obama, a Democrat, nominated Garland last year for a then-vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. The Republicans’ reasoning appeared to be that Garland would be accepted by Democrats and help restore faith in the FBI as a nonpartisan agency.

In an interview on Bloomberg Television, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell referred to Garland, a former federal prosecutor, as “an apolitical professional.”

A second Garland acquaintance who spoke on the condition of anonymity said Garland sought advice from those who told him he would be leaving his life-long position on the federal bench to take a job that could be terminated by Trump overnight.

A Republican Senate aide said Cornyn’s staff also worried that the third-term Texas Senator could cut his- and their own- careers short by going to the FBI.

An adviser to another candidate on the White House short-list, former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, 75, said Kelly is also being persuaded to step out of the running.

Kelly has not said that he would not consider the job, but so far he has not been interviewed.

Republican Representative Trey Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor whose name had been floated, said on Monday he was not interested in the director position.

The difficulty in filling key administration jobs is not just limited to the FBI director post.

Trump’s habits of contradicting his top aides, demanding personal loyalty and punishing officials who contradict him in public has discouraged a number of experienced people from pursuing jobs, said three people who declined to discuss possible positions with administration officials.

“It’s becoming increasingly difficult to attract good people to work in this administration,” said one senior official. “In other cases, veteran people with expertise are leaving or seeking posts overseas and away from this White House.”

Bill O’Reilly Sent to “Time Out”

Sometimes in business when you have an employee who has done something wrong, and who is combative and likely to exacerbate the situation…

You send them into “Time Out” – just as you would a combative child. In business it is known as a “forced vacation” to give time for the dust to clear, hopefully calm down, and for said emplyee to properly consider their sins.

Like Bill O’Reilly, his mouth, and the purported sins, which if true should ban him from the media…Indefinitely.

O’Reilly’s potential to become the Bill Cosby of the talking head world keeps on growing with each new complaint.

Uncle Ben Endorses Trump…”Because he offered me a job”!

Uncle Ben will impress the guests wearing that tux and bow tie in the White House… And pouring the wine after setting the tables.

Got just the job for you, boy!

Ben Carson: I Didn’t Want To Endorse Trump, But He Promised Me A Position

Dr. Ben Carson, who endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy on Friday, appears less than enthusiastic about that decision. And the real reason the unsuccessful GOP presidential hopeful endorsed his former rival could be a violation of federal law.

Carson told the conservative online site NewsMax TV on Monday that he backed Trump based on a practical calculus.

“I didn’t see a path for [John] Kasich, who I like, or for [Marco] Rubio, who I like. As far as [Ted] Cruz is concerned, I don’t think he’s gonna be able to draw independents and Democrats unless has has some kind of miraculous change… Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes. But that scenario isn’t available.” Pressed to clarify, Carson said he meant he’d prefer to have backed one of the other candidates.

Carson then said that Trump had promised him a role in his administration, “certainly in an advisory capacity.” Asked by NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg whether this meant a cabinet position, Carson declined to “reveal any details about it right now, because all of this is still very liquid.”

Federal law expressly prohibits candidates from directly or indirectly promising “the appointment of any person to any public or private position or employment, for the purpose of procuring support in his candidacy.” The penalty for violations could include fines or a year in jail — two years if the violation was willful.

Megyn Kelly Gets Blasted on “Cops Afraid To Do Their Job Because of BLM”

How did this lady slip onto a Faux News “panel”?

The first panelist, Bo Dietl, a former NYPD detective, said that the Black Lives Matter movement and its calls for greater police accountability have negatively impacted police. He argued that the police are under attack and “getting death threats.”

In response, panelist Lisa Durden called that argument a “racist statement” and accused those who defend the police of making them the “victims” instead of the people unfairly targeted by law enforcement officers.

“To blame the Black Lives Matter movement for why you’re not doing your freaking job, you robocops, is disgusting,” Durden said. “That’s the same thing as saying a woman whose husband beats her — it’s her fault because she stood up for herself. These guys are not the victims.”

Kelly then suggested that police officers might be worried about “becoming the next Darren Wilson,” in reference to the policeman who became infamous after he killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Boo hoo hoo!” Durden responded, before noting that plenty of people are evaluated on their job performance, and police should be no different.
