CHARDON, Ohio -- The Geauga County Sheriff on Tuesday barred any of his deputies from working off-duty security at future Cleveland Browns games because of their protest during the national anthem.
Sheriff Scott A. Hildenbrand in a memo to his employees posted on Facebook said the Browns protest, which came in response to President Donald Trump's statements that NFL players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired, was "disrespectful" to veterans and police officers alike.
"I'm concerned when the main act stands in front of the crowd, before the game even starts, and commits a blatant disrespectful act towards our flag, our Country, our Veterans and our first responders," Hildenbrand's memo said. "If they do not have respect for us and our Country only bad things will come of that. We will not be a part of these activities."

Good. Now get CPD and Cuyahoga County on board.
An elected position? If so, he will need help next election.
Well. the NFL could easily recruit the Black Panthers to provide security for their games.
awesome- finally some good news
Or the Hells Angels. It worked OK at Altamont.
Trump should not allow any uniformed servicemen to participate in NFL ceremonies and no more flyovers.
Good to know the area is still populated by great American patriots!
America’s Team my butt.
This needs to happen in every NFL city.
And the enemedia spin will be:
“Sheriff Bans Deputies From Earning Desperately Needed Income While Off Duty”
You think that Jones realizes that every one will lose money.
His players are mostly ghetto and want to join the protests, his threat to fire any player that did that backfired. The players called his bluff, he won’t fire his entire team and the players know it.
You really think he wants to kill his cash cow?
I say: “If they take a knee, give’em the FINGER!!”
Of course, when something happens he’ll be blamed.
That’s my Geauga County folks!
I think instead of flyovers, our pilots should do fly arounds. In formation, fly up to the stadium, just before the stadium, in formation break and fly around the stadium, then reform.
I’d pull the color guards too.
