Colin Kaepernick Compares Police to Slave Patrol After Philando Castile Verdict

If it's true that Colin Kaepernick's controversial actions have led National Football League teams to shun the quarterback, he certainly didn't help his cause with an inflammatory tweet comparing police officers to a "runaway slave patrol". The label on the image says, "You can't ignore your history".

Yanez thought Castile fit the description of a robbery suspect and was reaching for a gun.

A gathering and march ensued in downtown Minneapolis Saturday in response to the not guilty verdict for the St. Anthony police officer who fatally shot Philando Castille.

The defense pointed towards Castile's drug use, saying it prevented him from listening to officer commands.

Kaepernick captioned the photo, saying, "A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without outcome, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled".

The case got immediate national attention when Castile's girlfriend live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook.
