A Mississippi sheriff in Marshall County is in deep trouble for posting a picture of Colin Kaepernick that says “Osama Bin Laden had a son.” The picture was posted on Marshall County Constable Don Cothern personal Facebook page but many people are calling foul!
WREG News Channel 3 couldn’t reach the constable for comment but he did release a statement:
“Well, as I’m sitting in the ER, I see that I made the Chanel 3 news, for a Facebook post that I re shared, well over a week ago, last time I checked, we in America had freedom of speech,” he wrote. “I am a TRUE American and I firmly believe that you should stand for our National Anthem, not kneel, so if I offended anyone, I’m sorry. But I also know this is a Political move, since our county election is right around the corner. Yes, I am still the Constable and I am very thankful that the Lord has blessed me to continue to serve, while also doing dialysis for the last 5 years. People that know me, know that there is not a racist bone in my body.”
He also believes that the controversy “political move.” Hummm…. What do you think?
