It’s been four years since Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the National Anthem and caused a wave of criticism, but the anger towards him by a ton of people has not wavered.
The latest person to bring up the former San Francisco 49ers QB is paying for it dearly. A San Antonio police detective found himself being suspended for 30 days over a social media post where he was asked when Colin Kaepernick could be killed, KSAT reports, citing SAPD records.
“When can we kill this terrorist sympathizer?” the station reports Detective Joseph Fech posted on social media after former NFL quarterback Kaepernick condemned a U.S.-ordered drone strike on an Iranian general. “Terrorist sympathizer = terrorist in my book.”
SAPD discipline records show Fech was given a 30-day suspension in late June, which he then served from early July through early August.
A screenshot was also sent to them.
“In Fech’s post, he shared a pluralist.com article about Kaepernick’s comments following the death of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in a U.S. ordered drone strike.
Following Soleimani’s death, Kaepernick tweeted multiple times from his verified account about the attack.”
Kaepernick, who played six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers, has not played in an NFL game since 2016.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
