Officers say they are offended at Kaepernick’s comments about police brutality and that if the organization does not stop him ‘it could result in police officers choosing not to work at your facilities.’
Members of the police association took issue with that statement, alongside socks Kaepernick wore to practice several weeks ago covered in pigs wearing police hats.
The association, which provides around 70 staff at every game, said that if Niners staff ‘fail to take action to stop this inappropriate workplace behavior’ then ‘it could stop police officers working at your facilities.’
