Kaepernick's decision to sit through anthem scrutinized

Kaepernick has refused to stand when the national anthem is played during NFL preseason games as a form of protest regarding police brutality.

Even his former coach, outspoken MI leader Jim Harbaugh, chimed in from afar in disagreement with Kaepernick's tactics - clarifying some earlier remarks that questioned the quarterback's motivation. And it's not happening for all right now."Local veterans viewed Kaepernick's protest as either an insult to those who fought for freedom of speech or an exercise of the very freedom for which veterans fought.Glenn J. Key, an Army veteran and senior vice commander of Reading's George Washington Carver Post 962, critiqued Kaepernick's protest in two words: "That's insane."We fought for this country to be free and then some people like him want to disrespect the flag", said Key, who served in Germany during the Vietnam War.Other veterans, such as Sandra Keys, a former Women's Air Corps member and a member of Women Veterans of Berks County, see it as an American right."I think freedom of speech is vitally important", Keys said".

In light of Colin Kaepernick's criticism of police, it is no surprise a police union countered. "It's his method of action that I take exception to", Harbaugh posted on Twitter.

"I think it's a awful thing", Trump told Seattle radio station KIRO 93.7-FM. "At the same time, I think a lot of [us] as leaders, especially with young kids, is to make a good, proper announcement if you feel the need to".

"I had a real problem with it", he said. "Maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try, it won't happen".

Tapper asked Johnson: "There are also grieving moms because their sons were innocently and wrongly killed by law enforcement. if one of them were here and said 'Hey, Kaepernick wasn't standing up against your son, he was standing up for my son, ' what would you say to that?" "I want to stand and cheer for all the people who've lost their life of every religion, race, gender defending that flag". Having conversations about how to make change. We handled the situation well and moved forward. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman defended his NFC West foe for speaking his mind but said the QB "could have picked a better platform". Now, the San Francisco Police Officers Association is asking for both of them to apologize for Kaepernick's comments.

"I only wish Mr. Kaepernick could see the emotional and psychological challenges that our officers face following a fatal encounter", Halloran wrote. "Some are so affected they never return to the streets".

At the U.S. Open tennis tournament in NY, top-ranked American John Isner spoke of Kaepernick after winning his first-round match Monday. "I don't think you can deny someone the right to speak out or mock or make fun or belittle anybody else's opinion". "I disagree with it", Arians said. "I am with him 100 percent. I'm a big Blaine Gabbert fan now". "That's what he's done, and even as objectionable as we find his perspective, he certainly is entitled to express it".

"Again, they have every right to stand up and be heard", Fisher said.
