An officer from University of Nevada Reno Police Dept. mocked free agent qb Colin Kaeprnick by dressing up as him for Halloween.
The officer in question, Antonio Gutierrez, wore a Kaepernick jersey with a “Will stand for food” sign while sporting an afro wig and a fake nose in an effort to make fun of the QB.
That did not sit well with the Chief Adam Garcia. “For those who have seen the Halloween costume of one of our officers apparently mocking a citizen who has chosen to take advantage of his constitutional right to protest, I offer my sincere apologies.” he said.
“Members of our profession are held to a higher standard and denigrating another, on or off duty, is insensitive for its lack of respect and lack of understanding on how others may negatively view their actions and may be impacted.”
The chief also said there aren’t any policies in place that would punish the officer in question.
Btw, Colin Kapernick was a standout QB at UNR from 2007 to 2010 before being drafted in the NFL.
