Navy to thoroughly investigate man dressed in Colin Kaepernick jersey for K-9 demonstration
The incident took place last year during a fundraiser event at the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida.
The occurrence occurred a year ago during a pledge drive event at the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida. In the video, which has been seen just about 6 million times on Twitter, a man wearing a Kaepernick San Francisco 49ers shirt and protective gear is assaulted by four canines.
In a subsequent video, he tumbles to the ground and pokes a fun at standing. “Oh man, I will stand,” the man said as a reference to Kaepernick’s kneeling protest. The crowd of onlookers laughed.
The Navy has discharged an announcement saying that they are researching the episode, yet nobody included was an active member of the armed service. “The inherent message of this video is completely inconsistent with the values and ethos of Naval Special Warfare and the U.S. Navy,” the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Command said in a statement.
“We are investigating the matter fully, and initial indications are that there were no active duty Navy personnel or equipment involved with this independent organization’s event,” the statement concluded.
Kaepernick started to peacefully protest during the national anthem in late 2016. He would take a knee during the playing of the anthem to fight police brutality and racial inequity within America. He would not represent the national anthem until the words in the melody were true.
In spite of the fact that his activism costed him his football vocation, he constantly leverages his platform to battle for minorities through his Know Your Rights Camp cause. They as of late gave over $1.75 million to Black and brown communities to help battle the spread of COVID-19 and help the individuals who are as of now incarcerated.
