MSP Director Apologizes For Facebook Post

Michigan State Police director busted for Facebook post calling kneeling NFL players 'anti-American degenerates'

A meme has been making its way around the internet since Friday night, when President Donald Trump spoke out against NFL players who protest during the national anthem.

With just one click Sunday, Michigan State Police director Kriste Kibbey Etue shared a post online calling National Football League players protesting this weekend "rich, entitled, arrogant, ungrateful anti-american degenerates". It just means she didn't think she'd get caught, that it was safe to attack people for expressing their beliefs when she is charged with protecting their right to do so.

The director of the Michigan State Police has apologized for sharing a post on her Facebook page that called NFL players protesting during the national anthem "degenerates".

So in response, people in positions of authority like Etue in MI, cast off the concerns as the protestations of "ungrateful" "degenerates" who should just do what they're told and stop reminding white America that racism in this country hasn't been solved yet.

"When such a high-ranking member of law enforcement feels compelled to share such broad, inaccurate, and shameful comments, their judgment can no longer be trusted to help protect Michigan's diverse communities", Lonnie Scott, the organization's executive director, said.

'It's about the leader of the State Police missing the entire point of protesting police brutality. "That is something that law enforcement should take to heart, not use to try to divide us further".

"We have now a colonel, the leader of the state police, that has now shown a distinct bias toward a group of citizens in the state of MI", he said.

But the interview took a turn mere minutes in as Kelly turned the conversation with the two legends to the subject of aging. Kelly began by talking to Redford about his Hollywood career highlights and his iconic role as Hubble in The Way We Were .

Etue did not create the post, Banner said.

They question her objectivity and understanding of what they called symbolic protests against racial oppression and police brutality, The News reports. "She's not sorry for her position, just that she posted it".

A state police spokeswoman says the post was not about race.

State Sen. Rick Jones, a former sheriff from Grand Ledge, said Etue has worked to recruit more women and minority troopers.

"Now she's coming under fire for sharing a meme on her private Facebook page".

Governor Snyder's office says "she has served with distinction as an outstanding public servant for decades". "The Governor will not be asking her to resign".
