Another example of the inmates running the asylum again....

In the year of the idiot celebrity trying to make themselves relevant, we now have the "wanna-be's," others who wanna be like Colin Kaepernick. I've seen morons get free publicity, but this was a bit personal. This is East Jefferson Stadium in Metairie LA, where I spend a lot of my misguided high school yute. The Air Force Junior ROTC detachment, LA Squadron 62, is (at least was, I'm assuming they still are) on the bottom of the visitor's side.

Well, one of local high schools made news when their team kneeled when the National Anthem was playing.
Police Refusing To Cover HS Football Game After Students Protest National Anthem

When the students decided to protest the National Anthem at a Louisiana high school, the local police were having none of it.

The deputies in Jefferson Parish refused to work the extra shifts needed to provide security at Bonnabel High School, furious at the students’ un-American antics.

The protest even took the school superintendent by surprise.

“I was a bit taken aback at first. Keep in mind, I know what is happening nationally with some of the protests that’s happening across the country,” Jefferson Parish Public Schools Superintendent Isaac Joseph said, PJ Media is reporting. “They do have a right, and legally we do not have any right to punish or offer any sanctions against the team or team members....”

Yo, numnuts, maybe you should get your head out of your ass. They may have a "right" to show disrespect to the nation, but you know what they don't have a "right" to do. Play on the team.

I recall Coach Sara back in my Grace King days and his ass would take nothing like this. If one of his players had pulled that, the student would suddenly find himself standing. Sara would grab him by the next and hang him until the anthem is over. And then tell him, "You don't want to stand for the National Anthem, fine, go rest yourself on the bench for the game. You embarrass your team, school, me and yourself again like that, turn in your uniform..." That, Mr Joseph, his how your handle this issue.

Now since Beyonce started her publicity crap in the Super Bowl, I've said to officers, don't work details for her fat ass. She can contract out hood rats to protect her sizable butt. Looks like my buddies in Blue are doing just that.
...Law enforcement officers in Jefferson Parish were not happy.

“My understanding is, we’ve had some officers that said they will not work the Bonnabel High football games,” (Jefferson Parish LA) Sheriff Newell Normand said, Fox8Live is reporting. “I understand why, in light of Colin Kaepernick’s comments, specifically when he says, ‘Cops are getting paid leave for killing people.’ That’s not right, that’s not right by anyone’s standards. The fact of the matter is we risk our lives each and every day for the safety and security of our constituency throughout this country.”

Some of the officers are making their own voice heard and not signing up to work security detail.

“That is a voluntary detail, so I suspect I will have some officers refuse to work the Bonnabel High School games,” Normand said. “The same way that the Bonnabel players have every right to kneel during the national anthem, my officers have every right not to volunteer to work the Bonnabel high school football game.”

Normand says he won’t force the officers to work if they feel the it disrespects their job.

“That fuels the disappointment in my officers when they see this happen, and I can fully understand their disappointment and frustration,” Normand said. “When they’re on the clock and they’re working for me, they’ve got to do what they’ve got to do, because that’s what they’re hired to do. That’s not what this is – this is a voluntary detail where they volunteer to work this extra detail separate and apart from what they’re hired to do.”

Thank you Sheriff Norman, you and your deputies are showing how it's done. Those deputies have standards, there are some things they won't doe even for money. To the coach at Bonnabel, get your team under control. You're allowing this, the inmates are running the asylum.
