Serpico joins NYPD officers for Kaep Rally

1 post in this topic

Sometimes people rise above the rhetoric and do the right thing. IMO this is one of them. Hats off to these NYPD officers 

Frank Serpico joins NYPD officers for rally in support of Colin Kaepernick 

 

Quote

Colin Kaepernick, whose national anthem protests during the 2016 football season were spurred by what he views as police brutality against minorities, received support from an unlikely group on Saturday: dozens of New York City police officers, who rallied in Brooklyn to protest Kaepernick’s continued NFL unemployment. Among them was Frank Serpico, the former NYPD officer whose campaign against police corruption was the subject of the enduring 1973 film, “Serpico,” starring Al Pacino in the title role.

“He’s trying to hold up this government up to our Founding Fathers,” Serpico, now 81, told the Associated Press, adding that he wasn’t all that much of a football fan but felt moved to support the former San Franciso 49ers quarterback.
