WHICH DEMONSTRATES WHY THEY'RE TAKING A KNEE:

Florida Cops May Ditch Serving Miami Dolphins Over Anthem Protests (HANK BERRIEN, SEPTEMBER 18, 2016, Daily Wire)

The Broward Sheriff's Office and their deputies may refuse to do their traditional escorting of the Miami Dolphins next week against the Cleveland Browns when the Dolphins play their first home game.

The International Union of Police Associations, Local 6020, has asked police escorts to refuse service to the team until the Dolphins makes their players stand for the national anthem. Jeffery Bell, the president of the union, stated, "We've asked the deputies and the Broward Sheriff's Office not to do the details anymore," adding, "I respect their right to have freedom of speech. However, in certain organizations and certain jobs you give up that right of your freedom of speech temporary while you serve that job or while you play in an NFL game."

Except that their employer supports their protest.  Meanwhile, public servants don't get to decide who they'll serve.
