Police Officer’s ‘Kaepernick’ Halloween Costumes Has People In UPROAR- Want Him Fired!
Halloween is a fun time of year, especially for kids who like to play dress up. Little kids can put a costume on and pretend they are a pretty rainbow, Mater the Truck, an astronaut or Mario and Luigi. It doesn’t matter. It’s all in fun. It’s all about the costume and trick-or-treating for a day.
But when a police officer decides to dress up as Colin Kaepernick…well, it causes an uproar for some people. Now, these same people want him fired. What’s a matter can a guy have a little fun on Halloween?!
Officer Antonio Gutierrez posed for a photo with his date for the evening, and once it circulated on Instagram he started to get into a whole pile of trouble.
Officer Gutierrez, wearing a wig and a makeshift 49ers jersey, was dressed up as NFL ratings poison Colin Kaepernick.
So far, he has been scolded by his boss, the Reno Police Chief Adam Garcia, who released a statement about his Kaepernick costume.
“For those who have seen the Halloween costume of one of our officers apparently mocking a citizen who has chosen to take advantage of his constitutional right to protest, I offer my sincere apologies.”
For starts, it’s a Halloween costume, and Kaepernick is big news, and — oh, forget it, you don’t care.
While Chief Garcia has said that Guiterrez would not be facing any sort of official discipline for his Halloween party snap, he still decided to give out a statement really pushing the narrative that no fun is allowed.
“Members of our profession are held to a higher standard and denigrating another — on or off duty — is insensitive for its lack of respect and lack understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted.”
It’s just a costume, everyone can calm down. Kaepernick protests the cop, so a cop dresses up like him at a party.
