Posted on 09/30/2017 10:07:03 AM PDT by ForYourChildren
The protest of the national anthem by NFL players took on added intensity last month when Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was briefly detained outside a Las Vegas casino.
The player was high critical of how he was treated, blasting across social media that he was targeted simply being a black man and the officers used excessive force that was unbearable.
this coming from a 6′ 4″ 274 lb. professional football player.
Bennetts inflammatory words included the claim that an officer threatened to blow my f**king head off.
But, as is often the case of late when it comes to volatile incidents involving claims of racism, video of the incident, to include body cameras worn by officers, paint a whole other story.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, head of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said hundreds of videos were reviewed and no evidence was found that the officers directly involved with Bennett profiled him or used excessive force, Fox News reported.
And now the head of the Las Vegas police union is demanding an apology from the player.
Now more so than ever, said Steve Grammas, president of the Las Vegas Police Protective Association, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“The sheriff said the department reviewed 861 videos, including security footage and body camera footage from other officers, and determined that 193 videos were relevant to the investigation.”
Forcing a law enforcement entity to review 861 videos to determine a case based on a lie.
The law enforcement entity could have been using all those man hours solving murders, or drugs, or something. But to chase after a lie, disgusting!
A race hustler and kneeler who thought he could make cops look bad.
The NFL really should have a stern talk with players about what it means to be a tool being used to gin up the masses. Sad thing is, I suspect a lot of people, all ethnic groups, now believe that police are committing genocide against blacks. Don't they realize that framing is costing blacks their lives?
I've been saying on a few threads today....look at Dan Gilbert, some other owners, and some of the white players. They've been bullied into submission by black racist thugs in the NFL.
I’m sure he’s heard or said likewise on and off the field to someone.
They should demand half his salary.
Where’s the local prosecutor? Charge this guy with filing a false police report.
That should be a crime. He should be forced to reimburse the police department for the time it had to waste reviewing the videos.
I will bet the guy never even thought the whole thing would be caught on camera.
The NFL needs to get rid of Goddell, he is destroying football.
As I suspected. Bennett is a lying sack of dung.
Goodell is destroying the NFL. Football will survive and thrive long after the NFL is a distant memory.
From “hands up don’t shoot,” to this victimhood fantasy, the entire lefty narrative is based on lies.
Time to start a new league.
“From hands up dont shoot, to this victimhood fantasy, the entire lefty narrative is based on lies.”
Everything from “the entire lefty narrative is based on lies”, including Obamacare.
Obamacare is also based on lies and a hoax - Grubered. And it surprises me so much that the GOP wants to “fix” this lie! You can’t fix a lie. Just repeal it!
Welcome to Las Vegas, the Londonistan of security cameras.
Of course he was hiding in a casino, which is well known for surveillance of patrons.
861 video streams ... wow.
They should have knocked that chip off his shoulder.
When do BLMer/NFLer, their coaches and owners lie to their fans and Americans?
How often to their ESPN/NFL mediots lie to their fans and Americans?
Until people can be sued and jailed for this lying behavior it will keep increasing in occurrence.
I wonder how many black drivers with dark-tinted windows still cry “profiling” when stopped for violations. Even though you can’t see who is driving until you walk up close.
