Dispatcher Richard Reif wrote last week that NFL players are disrespecting the flag when they take a knee. Let's recall that it was Army veteran Nate Boyer who spoke with Colin Kaepernick and suggested kneeling “because people kneel to pray.”
For Mr. Reif to compare gang violence with police officers, whose job it is to protect and serve, shooting unarmed black men is the most ignorant statement I've heard in a long time.
You know what's truly disrespectful to our military? Taking away protections from predatory lenders preying on our veterans, which is what President Donald Trump just did.
