Officer Forced To Apologize For Humorous Kaepernick Costume

5

A University of Nevada, Reno police officer will not be punished for wearing a Halloween costume mocking Colin Kaepernick, says the department’s police chief. Chief Adam Garcia apologized Sunday for the “insensitive” costume worn by one of his officers, but said that officer would not face discipline.

“For those who have seen the Halloween costume of one of our officers apparently mocking a citizen who has chosen to take advantage of his constitutional right to protest, I offer my sincere apologies,” Garcia said, via the Reno Gazette Journal.

“Members of our profession are held to a higher standard and denigrating another — on or off duty — is insensitive for its lack of respect and lack understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted.” Read more at CBS.

  1. Oh boy. So the Thought Police are still out in full force. Here, I thought, after Obama/Holder/Lynch, things would return to normal. I was wrong. Trump has done absolutely NOTHING to drain the swamp! The Hate Crimes unit still monitors every move every WHITE male makes. This Country is hopelessly being sucked right down the toilet!

  2. No blackface or anything else that’s racially insensitive, just a sign mocking the individual. I don’t get what the problem is.
