Kaepernick's protest of 'rogue cops' extends to socks
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he has been wearing socks depicting police officers as pigs in protest of ''rogue cops'' who put the community and other officers at risk.
Kaepernick issued a statement on Twitter on Thursday after photos began circulating on social media of him wearing the socks that show a pig dressed in a police hat. The photos were taken earlier in training camp before Kaepernick's refusal to stand during the national anthem as a form of protest became public last weekend.
