Florida Police Union Boycott Miami Dolphins After National Anthem Protest

A Florida police union is boycotting the Miami Dolphins and the National Football League after players protested during the national anthem last week.

The Broward County Police Benevolent Association urged its union members to toss their tickets in response to the actions of three players on the team. Dolphins receivers Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills took a knee as the national anthem played, and defensive end Robert Quinn raised his clenched fist as a symbol of black power.

The police association’s vice president Rod Skirvin told the Miami Herald that the protests were a "slap in the face" to men and women who put their lives on the line in service of their country. "We have a lot of police officers in the county who are ex-military. It’s not just a slap in the face to our military—past and present—but to all law enforcement officers across the country."

Skirvin told the newspaper that the protests were "disrespectful and disgusting," adding that "as long as the protest continues, we will protest our attendance at the Dolphins games and continue to stay away from the NFL and its products."

South Florida police unions had previously accepted an invitation from the NFL to attend a football game to honor first responders, but they withdrew from the agreement when the NFL said players who protested wouldn’t be punished, despite having announced in May that protests during the national anthem violated the league’s policy.
