Louisiana sheriff's office boycotting Ford police cars over NFL anthem protest stance

Just now? Guess they missed that commercial Ford has been showing for months using the black protest song "Roll on sista" with the all black cast.

*******************

A Louisiana sheriff’s office is boycotting Ford’s police cars due to the automaker’s support for the right of NFL players to protest during the playing of the national anthem before games. 

Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington posted a letter that he sent to the Ford dealership his department buys its cars from to inform it of the decision.

Whittington wrote that “the Bossier Sheriff’s Office will no longer purchase Ford products as long as Ford sides with these who have no regard for the men and women who protect and serve this great nation. Yes, the NFL players have a right to protest as they deem necessary, but we, the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and the taxpayers of Bossier Parish have a right to spend our money elsewhere.”
