Some people just don’t learn. After a jury cleared Officer Jeronimo Yanez of all charges in the shooting death of Philando Castile, Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter to criticize the decision.
Rather than offer constructive criticism, Kaepernick decided to paint all police officers as racists.
“A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn’t need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!” he wrote on Twitter, along with a side-by-side photo of of an old slave patrol badge and a police badge.

Conservative Tribune reports:
Kaepernick’s constant political statements, including his refusal to stand for the national anthem, and his attacks on police officers have made him extremely unpopular among many on the right. Not to mention that most people, regardless of their political views, just want to enjoy the game and not have political opinions stuffed down their throats.
Kaepernick received backlash for his outlandish statement on Twitter.
THIS IS WHY YOU DONT HAVE A JOB! Good luck in the CFL

Kaepernick has been unable to get a team to sign him ever since he decided to reject the American anthem by kneeling during it.
Too bad for him, he isn’t talented enough to justify this kind of behavior.
