FL Police Union Official Backs Call to Return Dolphins Tickets Over Anthem Protests
Rips Warren for calling justice system 'racist.'
Police and other law enforcement should return their tickets to future Miami Dolphins games to make a statement after three players protested during the national anthem in Week 1 of preseason, a police union official said.
Broward County Police Benevolent Association Vice President Rod Skirvin said on "Fox & Friends First" that the union is pulling out of the discount ticket program established with the Fins ahead of the 2018 regular season.
Skirvin said his union was disappointed with some players' actions last season, but took as a message of goodwill the offer from the team to sell them discounted tickets and hold a first-responders' appreciation day later this year.
"[That was], until the kneeling happened Thursday at the Dolphins game," Skirvin said.
Receivers Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills, both 26, as well as defensive end Robert Quinn, 28, protested during the anthem at the exhibition game versus the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Wilson and Stills took a knee, while Quinn held his fist raised in the air in protest.
Skirvin said the protests have caused "great pain" to officers and military veterans, and ripped Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for her blanket statement about the criminal justice system being "racist."
