Why do ANY athletes get police escort?? These are just useless entertainers.
Ok, now we are really getting into First Amendment territory. The Sheriff's Dept, a government entity, is stating they will no longer give escort service to the Dolphins because they don't stand for the Anthem. Definitely a violation of the players' First Amendment rights. They should be contacting the ACLU over this, IMO.
Sorry no violation at all
So...the government can withdraw protection if your speech is not to their liking?
“I respect their right to have freedom of speech. However, in certain organizations and certain jobs you give up that right of your freedom of speech temporary while you serve that job or while you play in an NFL game.”
Am I the only one to see the irony involved in this?
The players are protesting police racism...yet the police watch over them like private body guards?
Let's be honest, NFL players...people like you get special treatment by the police...and you've probably gotten it since you were in high school! You also get special treatment from your teachers as well. Isn't America a wonderful country?
why do they get escort service anyways?
It would be funny if the players start bitching about the people they protest wont escort them
Why do you think the Dolphins players have a "right" to escort service from the Sheriff's Department? Is that something you get? It's not something I get! Yet there they are "protesting" the way that police treat them? (eye roll)
Definitely a violation of the players' First Amendment rights.
They should be contacting the ACLU over this, IMO.
Excellent idea! The ACLU should escort them.
I think it was more of a courtesy than protection. The police have real crimes to pursue, has there ever been a player put in jeopardy going to the field?
