Colin Kaepernick started all of this.
Many NFL players have joined the former NFL quarterback in pursuit of sending a confusing and incomprehensible message about our police officers.
And now a football star added fuel to the angry liberal fire by telling a massive lie about an incident with the Las Vegas Police Department.
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett has been one of the most vocal supporters of Kaepernick.
Now the pro-bowler is claiming through a social media post that he was racially profiled and the victim of excessive force by officers from the LVPD.
He even claimed that the officer who put him in cuffs said if he moved he’d “Blow his f—king head off.”
A short video obtained by TMZ showed that didn’t actually happen.
Not only that, but Bennett accused the two officers of racial profiling – with the assumption that they were white – and made no mention that both officers were Hispanic.
Nevertheless, Bennett wrote a letter about the incident.

The details delivered by Bennett are sketchy at best, and the Las Vegas Police Department rightfully fired back with their own letter.
“The Las Vegas police union has written a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, demanding that the league investigate Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett for making false accusations of racial profiling against their officers.
The September 7 letter, issued by Las Vegas Police Protective Association President Detective Steve Grammas, insisted that a thorough investigation into the incident will prove that the officers involved in the temporary detention of the Seahawks player will be vindicated.
The letter ended, saying that, “Michael Bennett’s claim that our officers are racist is false and offensive to the men and women of law enforcement:”

The letter emphasizes, “Our officers, who are both minorities, had the legal right, and obligation, to detain Bennett based upon the nature of the call and Bennett’s unusual and suspicios actions.
Our officers did not detain Bennett because he was, ‘a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.’”
It’s clear that Bennett has an agenda to slander our dedicated police officers who put their lives on the line every day to keep the streets safe.
These lies only incite more violence and add fuel to the anti-police revolution that will probably be happening pretty soon – especially at this rate.
