Fans Boo NFL Players Who KNEEL During Tribute to Fallen Police Officer…

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Once again the hypocrisy coming out of the NFL is deafening, as they prove once again their cause of standing for racial injustice is selective at best. Just when you think they cannot stoop any lower? Well, they go and prove you wrong!

During a tribute to honor a police officer killed in the line of duty just THREE short days ago, some New Orleans Saints players chose to take a knee. The boos rang down from Saints fans during a moment of silence for fallen NOPD officer Marcus McNeil, a black officer killed on Friday.

The display turned what was supposed to be a moment of silence in remembrance of the fallen officer into a moment about the NFL and their tantrum, rather than a moment in remembrance of the fallen officer as it was intended.

What about Officer McNeil’s life? It is abundantly clear only SOME lives matter to those taking a knee for social justice and so-called racial inequality.

Officer McNeil is remembered as a man that wanted to help his city of New Orleans….to give back to his community and help build it for the betterment of its future generations. A man that was a native NOLA resident and did not leave his city for greener pastures but remained and was on the front lines in his attempts to help a city riddled with poverty and crime.

Officer McNeil had been with the New Orleans Police Department for just 3 short years when the 29-year-old was gunned down in the early morning hours of October 13 while patrolling New Orleans East. Officer McNeil was one of four officers patrolling an area around 12:15 a.m. Friday when they “saw something that aroused their suspicion,” according to what NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison told NOLA.com. 

 

He stepped out of his car to investigate and a gunman opened fire, shooting the officer repeatedly. Other officers returned fire, shooting the suspect, who then ran into an apartment barricading himself inside. He eventually surrendered to a SWAT team. Officer McNeil was transported to the local hospital where he was then pronounced dead.  He leaves behind a wife, Brittiny, and two small children.

He was killed by convicted felon Darren Bridges. Bridges was out on parole after being sentenced to six and a half years in prison in 2012 for attempted possession of a firearm by a felon. He also had priors for battery and marijuana, all in New Orleans.

The Saints’ Sunday matchup against the Lions was the first game played at the Superdome since President Donald Trump had voiced his opinion weighing in on the ongoing protests staged by NFL players at an Alabama campaign rally last month. Every singled Detroit Lion remained standing during the moment of silence.  The Saints chose to protest during the moment of silence for the fallen officer and then stood during the national anthem. Many feel the protest was specifically directed towards the fallen officer in an act of blatant disrespect. Fans were less than amused.
