This is getting real tiresome that police keep pointing the finger at a black man who was trying to run for safety. If that had any sense they would have realized that he was a professional NFL player and NOT some thug.
The police continue to profile blacks in America because of their complexion and it’s disgusting! Read on to see what Michael Bennett has to say about the social injust….
CelebNSports247.com has learned that Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was brutally slammed to the ground by LVPD.
This year, Michael Bennett has had all eyes on him since he has continued Colin Kaepernick’s sitting during the national anthem.
Now, Bennett has faced a disgusting act of violence by the LVPD who claim that he fit a description. Trust, we know that statement from police all too well ourselves. Like Micheal we too have been slammed to the ground, beaten by police and cuffed because “we fit a description.” We feel that crap is BS on the police is part.
Here is the video from TMZ which shows cops slamming Bennett to the ground outside of Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas on August 26, 2017.
Continuing on, Bennett had this to say after police confirmed his identity:
He was never given a reason “for the officers’ abusive conduct. They apparently realized I was not a thug, common criminal or ordinary black man but Michael Bennett a famous professional football player.”
Bennett has now hired a civil rights attorney, pointing out that this is exactly why he’s been protesting during the national anthem.
“Equality doesn’t live in this country and no matter how much money you make, what job title you have, or how much you give, when you are seen as a ‘N—–,’ you will be treated that way.”
His brother Colin Kaepernick tweeted his support for Bennett, calling the actions of police “disgusting and unjust.”
“This violation that happened against my Brother Michael Bennett @mosesbread72 is disgusting and unjust. What do you think happens to people without fame and wealth? I stand with Michael and I stand with the people.”
Here is the open letter from Bennett, which he first posted on Twitter about what happened that night:
