National Assoc. of Police Weigh in on Nike

The jerks at Nike got a letter recently from Five-0 HQ (NAPO) National Association of Police:

file:///C:/Users/Rick%201/Downloads/NAPO%20Ltr_NIKE%20Re%20Kaepernick%20Campaign%20(00 3).pdf

The fact that Nike stock did not stay static of fall further is a testament to the apathy that affects our entire country. When overpaid whiners take a knee at sporting events, my TV gets immediately turned off or switched to something more relevant or actually matters.

I have friends who died under our flag, and I will NOT stand by and see it desecrated by these so called 'athletes' who know nothing of REAL sacrafice. It just plain pisses me off!

Rant over......

I use Brooks Running myself. I guess they're made in Asia also, but at least the company has stayed out of politics.

NAPO cherry picking their causes again. They take their members money and forward a tribute payment to the mother union. There are only I think 3 or 4 unions in the US...AFL-CIO, AFSCME and SEIU.

NAPO endorses socialist anti gun candidates.

Nope. Never belonged to a cop union. Any union member should follow the money trail.

I found this to be interesting. I don't agree with this kid on very much policy-wise, but I respect his approach to journalism far more than... well... pretty much any other "journalist" I can think of these days. He's center-left libertarian, but does an exceptional job of trying to be unbiased and get to the bottom of things.
