Mike Pence's NFL Stunt Cost Police Department $14,000

A planned political stunt by Vice President Mike Pence, in which he walked out of an NFL game in protest of players kneeling during the national anthem, cost the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department more than $14,000, new records show.

During an October game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, Pence made a show to leave the stadium after he saw players kneel for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” later tweeting that he “will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.”

The protests by multiple NFL teams and players were first started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in response to police brutality and racial injustice against people of color, primarily black Americans.

Many believed Pence leaving the stadium was a premeditated stunt orchestrated by the White House, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars. That belief was confirmed when President Donald Trump tweeted that he had told Pence to leave once players knelt.
F-ing MORON!!

Same old waste in Washington...swamp is full of it. #-o

The President and Vice President travel all over the place and because of that police forces all over the country are called in to duty. This happens daily, it happened with Obama, it happens with Trump, it will happen with whomever the next president and vp are. The piece was nothing more than an opinion piece put out there to slam the VP.
