49ers owner received a letter from the Santa Clara Police Department

Colin Kaepernick is putting a lot of pressure on his employer

Colin Kaepernick is putting a lot of pressure on his employer

Colin Kaepernick has made it tough on his employer by his actions, but many are supportive of his actions.  According to Pro Football Talk, the Santa Clara Police Department sent an open letter to 49ers owner Jed York listing several problems it has to Kaepernick’s protest.

1. “Your employee then insinuated that police officers are being placed on paid leave for murdering minorities. This statement is obviously insulting, inaccurate and completely unsupported by any facts.”

2. “Mr. Kaepernick then made inaccurate and untrue statements about the level of training that is required to be a police officer.”

3. “The 49er organization has been allowing Mr. Kaepernick to wear exposed socks with the image of a pig wearing a police hat during practices at the training camp in Santa Clara.”

4. “Your organization has made no statement disagreeing with Mr. Kaepernick’s accusations.”

The letter concludes by saying officers may choose not to work 49ers games because of Kaepernick’s statements, adding that police officers “have the right to do their job in an environment free of unjustified and insulting attacks from employees of your organization.”

I want to know what you think? How will this end for Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers?  How will he be able to rebound from these incidents?
