This whole NFL controversy has gotten way out of hand. Ever since Colin Kaepernick decided to kneel last year to protest America and it’s “injustices” numerous other football players have jumped on the bandwagon resulting in a major controversy across the country. Fans all over have responded to the protests by burning their jersey’s across social media.
One day before 5 police officers were murdered in Dallas, TX by a Black Lives Matter supporter, Cleveland Browns player Isiah Crowell posted an image on his Instagram account of a man wearing an ISIS-like image of a man wearing an all-black outfit and black mask standing behind a police officer and stabbing him in the neck with a knife.
The Cleveland Browns made the following statement on behalf of Crowell for his disgusting actions:
“We have spoken to Isaiah regarding his extremely disturbing and unacceptable social media decision. It was completely inappropriate and we have made him aware of our high level of disappointment. Isaiah has apologized but also knows that just an apology is insufficient and that he must take steps to make a positive difference after a very negative and impactful post.”
The NFL made no apology for Crowell’s terrorist-like post aimed to incite violence against our law-enforcement officers.
Should law enforcement officers be forced to remain silent in the face of a movement created to disparage and discredit the amazing work they do every day because of a Black Lives Matter, anti-cop movement that has permeated the NFL?
Stephen Loomis, President of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association spoke out against Cleveland Brown’s player Isiah Crowell. Lommis said he thinks the “store-bought apology” isn’t enough. “He needs to go to Dallas, help the families who lost their loved ones last week, write them a check, look them in the eyes and give a heartfelt apology.”
Loomis says Crowell’s post was as “offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the 60s.” He adds that if Crowell doesn’t go to Dallas and make a donation, “I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn’t make it right.”
As for Crowell admitting he was wrong and acted out of rage — Loomis says, “You’re a grown ass man, and you claim you were too emotional to know it was wrong? Think we’ll accept your apology? Kiss my ass.” – TMZ
