A famed New York City Police Department detective rallied with dozens of his colleagues on Saturday to help NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a current league free agent, get signed to a team.
Kaepernick is the former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and created a wave of controversy about one year ago after he began his infamous national anthem protest, which involved him kneeling during the playing of the anthem. He began the protest to bring attention to police brutality in the United States.
According to the Associated Press, about 75 police officers rallied together in Brooklyn wearing matching black T-shirts that read, “#imwithkap,” on the front. The AP reported the officers who gathered were “mostly minority.”
