Cop Who Killed a Minor Reaches out to Kaepernick by Giving Him Something He Wasn’t Expecting

Colin Kaepernick learned a valuable lesson over the weekend, as a father of three, and former blue-collar Chris decided to contact Kaepernick in a very unfamiliar fashion. Amos gained the public’s attention after he shot and killed a young minority after he was sent on a paid leave.

So, when Kaepernick said, “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder,” he was referring to cops like Amos himself.

But, Amos didn’t leave matters to unravel on their own., so he wrote an open letter to Kaepernick, giving him an educational background on the country, patriotism and then some. read the full letter below:

An Open Letter to Colin Kaepernick,

Dear Colin, 

I guess you have been pretty busy these last few days. For the record, I don’t think any more or less of you for not standing for the national anthem. Honestly, I never thought that much about you, or any professional athlete for that matter, to begin with. I’ve read your statement a few times and want you to know I am one of the reasons you are protesting. You see I am a retired police officer that had the misfortune of having to shoot and kill a 19-year-old African-American male. And just like you said, I was the recipient of about $3,000 a month while on leave, which was a good thing because I had to support a wife and three children under 7 years old for about 2 months with that money. Things were pretty tight because I couldn’t work part-time. Every police officer I’ve ever known has worked part-time to help make ends meet.

You know, Colin, the more I think about it, the more we seem to have in common. I really pushed myself in rehab to get back on the street, kind of like you do to get back on the field. You probably have had a broken bone or two and some muscle strains and deep bruising that needed a lot of work. I just had to bounce back from a gunshot wound to the chest and thigh. Good thing we both get paid when we are too banged up to “play,” huh? We both also know what it’s like to get blindsided. You by a 280-pound defensive end, ouch! Me, by a couple of rounds fired from a gun about 2 feet away into my chest and thigh. We also both make our living wearing uniforms, right? You have probably ruined a jersey or two on the field of play. I still have my blood-stained shirt that my partner and paramedics literally ripped off my back that cold night in January. Fortunately, like you I was given a new one. Speaking of paramedics aren’t you glad the second we get hurt trainers and doctors are standing by waiting to rush onto the field to scoop us up. I’m thankful they get to you in seconds. It only took them about 10 minutes to get to me. By the grace of God, the artery in my thigh didn’t rupture or else 10 minutes would have been about 9 minutes too late. We also have both experienced the hate and disgust others have just because of those uniforms we wear. I sure am glad for your sake that the folks who wear my uniform are on hand to escort you and those folks that wear your uniform into stadiums in places like Seattle!

I guess that’s where the similarities end, Colin. You entertain for a living, I and almost 800,000 others across this country serve and protect. Are there some bad apples within my profession? Absolutely, and they need to be identified and fired or arrested! But you know what, the vast majority do the right thing, the right way, for the right reason. Did I mention that seconds before I was shot, an elderly African-American gentleman walking down the sidewalk, turned to my partner and I as we rode past and said, “Get them.” Get who, you ask? The thugs terrorizing an otherwise good and decent neighborhood, home to dozens of good, decent African-American families trying to raise those families in communities not protected by gates and security guards. No these folks and families depend on America’s law enforcement officers.

Colin, I have buried 7 friends killed in the line of duty and three others who have committed suicide. I have attended more funerals than I care to remember of neighboring departments who have lost officers in the line of duty, during my career. Law enforcement officers with different backgrounds, upbringings and experiences united by their willingness to answer the call to protect and serve their fellow citizens.

Colin, I am sorry for the endorsement deals you may lose and the dip in jersey sales, but please know you will NEVER lose what these men and women and their families have lost. And so whether you stand or sit during the national anthem means very little to me. As for me and the men and women on whose team I was privileged to serve, we will put on our ballistic vests, badge and gun, kiss our loved ones goodbye, for some tragically for the last time, and out into a shift of uncertainty we will go. We will continue to protect and continue to serve and we will be standing at attention, Colin, not just for the playing of our national anthem, but far more importantly for the playing of Taps.

V/R (very respectfully),

Chris Amos

If I was Kaepernick right about now, I’d look for some dark, dark corner to hide in.

    No one knows till they walk in another mans or women shoes what they must face everyday. The police face danger and death every time they put on there uniforms. Amos told you like it is Kaepernick as he has seen and experienced things you have never had to be part of. You whine and you bitch about how awful things are out there for the blacks. Why is there no changes in the last eight years of the toll of blacks being shot and women and children being murdered, while playing outside or in there homes , from drive by shootings. Why are 90% of the blacks are being murdered by Blacks? These cities are Hell Holes that thrive on drugs and thugs being predators You make Millions while the poor live in poverty and most of the women have no man to protect them. If you and your ungrateful players wish not to stand in respect for the flag and our National Anthem , it just shows your disrespect for the Country that has given you the right to do so. Just remember the fans who come to watch and pay you, they do not want to see you doing this as it offends them. Thank you again Amos for your dedication and Love for your fellow human beings , to put your life on the line for all of us. God Bless you and keep you safe. Go out there Kaepernick and spend some of those Millions to help those in need and get off your soap box.

    I hope this is not FAKE News!

    Kaepernick will automatically discard it whether it is or is not, you know that, right?
