You may recall Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett from all the sitting he was doing during National Anthems and football games. He has spent a lot of time following in the footsteps (or more specifically, the buttprint) of his fellow professional anthem hater and bench warmer, Colin Kaepernick (see 49ers Colin Kaepernick Idiotically Protests National Anthem… Because Black Lives Matter?). However there’s now a new development in Michael Bennett’s life. Apparently the cops showed up in response to a call for a possible shooting at a club. They wanted to investigate, but Michael Bennett didn’t stick around to find out what was going on. Apparently he ran. Surprise!
Sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ Sports … when cops responded to the club for a possible shooting, they ordered everyone to get down and not move so they could properly search and investigate.
We’re told Bennett did not stay put — instead, he ran — and a cop outside the club stopped him and ordered him down to the ground at gunpoint.
Our sources say Bennett was detained until cops could determine he was not involved in any possible criminal activity … and he was released.
Here’s what Michael has to say about the ordeal:

Not sure that’s what the video shows…
This is the same guy who has taken it upon himself to speak out on behalf of all those who may have suffered racial inequality across America. Forgive my ignorance, but it doesn’t seem he’s great at discernment. Too many hits to the ole noggin perhaps. Football tends to dim the senses (see Colin Kaepernick Praises Fidel Castro. Fails Functional IQ Test… and OOPS! ESPN Forced to Apologize After ‘Auctioning’ NFL Players Like Slaves).
Look, we don’t know all the details of why Bennett took off faster than he ever has in his career. With anti-police rhetoric at an all time high, more cops are forced to be on edge. Running from the police during a possible shooting? Not a good plan. It’s pretty common knowledge by this point, but I digress.
As for all the other people he mentioned in the tweet – Eric Garner, Michael Brown, etc? They were wrong too.
