This past Saturday, dozens of NYPD police officers raised their fists in solidarity with NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick in support of his protest against police brutality.
The gathering was organized by Sgt. Edwin Raymond and took place at Brooklyn Bridge Park. In attendance were about 80 current and retired police officers who wore T-shirts with the hashtag “#IMWITHKAP.”
“As members of law enforcement, we can confirm that the issues he is saying exist in policing, and throughout the criminal justice system, indeed exist,” said Raymond.
