Last week President Trump got himself in a row with NFL players and owners with him denouncing them for kneeling for the national anthem and them condemning him of his remarks against those who protest with neither side backing down.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’”
“You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s going to say, ‘That guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it but they’ll be the most popular person in this country.”
But Breitbart has shed light on new information about these protesters that may, at last, prove Trump the undoubted winner in his dissent with the NFL.
The statistic about NFL athletes’ arrest shows the true color of these players who feign to obey and fight for the law.
According to arrest statistics for the NFL, a player of the league is detained every week, on average, for offenses that include domestic abuse and rape, gun violations, drug crimes, misconduct, burglary, violating traffic rules, and, more rarely, homicide.
In this year, for instance, the number of NFL arrests totals at 32. As reported by Breitbart, below is a list of some of the more usual offenses:
- Assault and battery – 7
- Drugs – 6
- DUI – 5
- Domestic violence – 5
- Disorderly conduct – 4
- Resisting arrest – 2
- Guns – 1
- License/traffic – 1
- Other – 1
The arrest breakdown by position is as follows:
- Wide receiver – 140
- Linebacker – 119
- Cornerback – 116
- Running back – 99
- Defensive tackle – 80
It so turns out that a number of those who knelt the anthem have arrest records.
Below is a list of some of the league’s players who protested the anthem during Week 4 and who also have police records, via Breitbart:
