Not all NFL players are anti-American, race-baiting, lying twits. But Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks might be. He claimed the police threatened his life and put a gun to his head. Because all cops are racist assholes. Okay that’s the implication, he didn’t actually say that. Newly released footage is even more damning. It shows Michael Bennett running out of the casino in a crouched position as officers scream “get down on the ground now.”
The Las Vegas Metro Police Dept. says the body cam footage absolutely justifies why police took down Michael Bennett at gunpoint during a search for an active shooter … saying it was NOT about race. Bennett had claimed he was racially profiled in the early hours of August 27 — when cops detained him outside the Cromwell hotel following the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight.
The footage shows a 3-man police team — made up of 2 hispanic officers and 1 black officer — identify Bennett as a suspicious person who did not get down on the ground as ordered during the hotel sweep. Video shows Bennett crouching and running in the casino before bolting out of a hotel door, jumping over a gate and running to the street.
One of the officers quickly asks if the man running had a gun and then gives chase.
In case anyone needed reminding, when officers are actively searching for a shooter, do what they say. This includes dropping to the floor as if trying to snag a fumble. Of which Bennett should be familiar. But Bennett assumed a crouched position and high tailed it. Instead of dropping like your small quarterback gets dropped because your crappy offensive line can’t do sh!t.
Now I’ve never been in an active shooter situation, but if I wanted to help the active shooter I would CROUCH and RUN out of the casino just as officers were screaming “GET DOWN ON THE GROUND.” It’s the perfect distraction!
The officers also clearly, and politely, explained to Bennett why he was detained. So this idea that Bennett had “no idea why they detained me” is like Seahawks fans claiming not to know what went catastrophically wrong in Super Bowl XLIX. What the actual hell?
After seeing this new footage, it’s lucky Bennett didn’t get a cap popped right in his million dollar ass. Sorry, there’s as much racism here as audience sympathy for NFL players flipping the bird to the national anthem.
