Video: Police Officer to the NFL Players: ‘Now I have had enough’

On Sunday, Tucson Police Officer Brandon Tatum, who is black, posted his views on YouTube concerning the outrage by NFL Players, and those who support the NFL players, who knelt instead of standing for the national anthem outraging millions of Americans.

Tatum explained why you cannot disrespect the flag without respecting it, why it means so much to Americans, and why the NFL needs to stop disrespecting it.

As the national anthem rang out at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, neither the Tennessee Titans nor the Seattle Seahawks were out on the field. Earlier in the day in Chicago, all but one of the Pittsburgh Steelers remained in the locker room during the anthem ahead of their game against the Bears.

NFL Sunday began with members of the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens either taking a knee or locking arms as the U.S. national anthem was sung at London’s Wembley Stadium. Those who were not kneeling, including the coaches on both teams and Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, locked arms during the national anthem. The players then stood up for “God Save the Queen,” the British anthem.

Tatum made the news and his views spread throughout social media when he was outspoken in 2016 when he attended a Trump rally for then Republican candidate, Donald Trump in what he saw was the hatred and the disruptive protesters who hurled obscenities at the Republican candidate.

He did not feel unsafe around Trump’s supporters but was ready to fight protesters in self-defense. He calls them the most hateful, evil people he has ever seen. The demonstrators, who he recalls chanting the phrase “Black lives matter,” used profane language and gestures, leading a mother to cover her child’s ears.

One protester, he recounts, got beat up, but Tatum says that the man instigated a fight either by spitting on or assaulting a rally attendee. He hopes that his message makes it into the news so that typical CNN coverage of just the retaliation against the agitator doesn’t become the prevailing narrative about the rally.

Since the NFL players protest, Facebook groups are starting to pop up and citizens are calling for banning the NFL as well their sponsors.
