Over the past year or so, we have all gotten familiar with the anthem kneelers. We don’t really know why exactly they thought that sitting down during the one small period of time designated for respecting our flag was a good idea. There was never a coherent argument made. Police brutality? Or something. Police brutality has always existed and it makes up a microscopic fraction of what police do. But, thanks to the racially divided Obama years, the narrative was too overpowering.
So, for months and months the NFL stood by and did nothing while players basically spit in the face of patriotic Americans everywhere.
What do you think affects more Americans each year? Police brutality? Or Domestic violence.
That’s obviously a no-brainer.
In fact, one of the anthem kneelers just found himself in some big trouble for the latter.
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested this weekend for domestic violence and possession of an assault weapon … making this his 2nd arrest in a month.
According to the Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police Department … Foster was arrested Sunday morning after cops responded to a welfare check and possible disturbance call. They say the 49ers star was arrested without incident.
He was booked on three separate charges — domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon. No further details were immediately available.
For the second time in less than a month, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been arrested.
The Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police confirmed Sunday night that Foster was arrested earlier in the day on charges related to domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon.
Police responded to a disturbance call placed at approximately 9:15 a.m. Sunday at a Los Gatos residence. Upon arrival, officers spoke to Foster and the alleged victim. The result of the initial investigation was to arrest Foster, 23.
Foster was then transported and booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail, where he was held on $75,000 bail. He was released on bail Sunday night. The Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police said the incident remains under investigation.
Maybe Foster should worry a little more about not beating up women and less about the few cases where the police cross the line.
No one is saying police brutality isn’t an issue. Of course it is. An important one.
However, the narrative being peddled that the police are out there on the prowl desperate to find black people to murder is just ludicrous and it has no connection to reality.
If you aren’t able to go through your daily life without beating up a woman then it probably isn’t a good idea to be a vocal critic of the police beating up people. That’s called hypocrisy.
