This is definitely not going to help Colin Kaepernick’s case to get a job in the NFL.

On Friday, a Minnesota jury acquitted St. Anthony, Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez of second-degree manslaughter charges in the shooting of Philando Castile.

In the wake of that verdict, the former San Francisco 49ers QB took to Twitter and posted a picture that compared modern day police officers to slave catchers.


Kaepernick remains a free agent after his 2016 NFL season was filled with controversy—due to him kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of events like what happened to Philando Castile.
