ALAMEDA COUNTY (KRON) — The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office has invited San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the police academy in response to his comments against police in America.
“You can become a cop in six months, and don’t have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist, that’s insane,“ Kaepernick said during a postgame interview over the weekend.
The sheriff’s office is inviting Kaepernick to its Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Center:
We would like to cordially invite you to the Alameda County Regional Training Center (RTC) in Dublin, CA. The RTC is currently in session hosting our 156th and 157th basic police academies. In addition to the academy, we train thousands of law enforcement officers from throughout the state and country in all aspects of our profession, including use of force. We have a specially designed Use of Force simulator that puts officers in situations where they must make split second decisions on what actions to take. In addition, we invite you to meet with our current academies and veteran officers to talk to them about their experiences and yours.
We hope that you will take this opportunity to meet with a new generation of law enforcement officers and have an open dialogue.
This comes after Kaepernick is facing tons of controversy after not standing up for the national anthem during preseason games.
