Colin Kaepernick Immediately Weighs In On Michael Bennett’s Police Brutality Claim
Colin Kaepernick wasted no time before weighing in on claims of police brutality from Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.
Bennett tweeted out his statement accusing the Las Vegas police department of excessive force at 9:01 am EST.

It took Kaepernick only 49 minutes before weighing in with a tweet stating, “This violation that happened against my Brother Michael Bennett is disgusting and unjust. I stand with Michael and I stand with the people.”

I have no idea what happened to Bennett in Las Vegas. At this point we have no evidence to confirm his allegations. Of course, this doesn’t mean he’s exaggerating or lying. It simply means we don’t know yet.
Kaepernick clearly doesn’t care about waiting for evidence, or even a statement from the LVPD about Bennett’s allegations.
I’m sure the quickest way for Kaepernick to get back in the NFL is to jump in on claims of racism and police abuse without evidence. Seems like the smartest move for a guy who can’t get a job.
