No law exists in the United States that can complel any citizen to acquiesce to or continence a protest. The VP had EVERY RIGHT to exercise HIS FREEDOM OF CHOICE to leave the game. The NFL "... social justice warrior athletes..." had a right to exercise their Freedom of Choice to Protest. The VP was exercising his right to express his contempt for said protest.

Pence tweeted "... I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” ...

While some view the NFL players taking a knee as disrespectful to soldiers, I don't. I DO believe it is disrespectful to the U.S. Flag and our National Anthem, both of which represent the ideals of our country. With their silliness, knee-taking NFL players disrespect the Flag AND our National Anthem. I find that offensive. Two our of Pence's three is good enough for me. Glad he walked. #BoycottNFL #BoycottNFLSponsors

Disrespectful...go CFL

Change your viewing to College or the Canadian Football League. 40% of the league is made up of former NFL players and Canada is the biggest trading partner of 32 of the 50 states so you are not an American to watch the CFL from your great white North. Do it okay, eh?https://youtu.be/3VcjHQ4IMUc

If you love the one knee guys and that's your choice, but if you are upset as hell as I am, go watch the Canadian football league and let's help the advertisers take notice and move their giving as well LOL. Life's a b**** when Nielsen ratings go down isn't it?

LOL at Pence's comment that he and Trump will not dignify an event... of all the words used to describe Trump, dignity is never one of them. This whole thing was a publicity stunt for Trump. Trump tweeted he asked the VP to leave if anyone kneels. They knew that several 49ers kneel, so they knew he would walk out before he even got there. That's why they didn't have the press pool traveling with the VP even get out of their vans; it was like "don't bother getting out--we won't be here long".

SP5 Christine Conley - They should have it on at all times while on duty but I'm pretty OK with them covering it up when they are in the restroom. :)

The issues with body cameras isn't what the public commonly believes.
1) body cameras face one direction, away from the officer toward the front. Not the sides, back, down, etc. In other words, it isn't like tv where you see everything. It doesn't show the person who hits you from behind or something thrown at you from the side.
2) audio doesn't pick up everything clearly. Anything more than a few feet may not get picked up.
3) laws prevent filming people in areas where there is an expectation of privacy and no criminal offense is being committed. For those who think it's a good idea to have an Officer with the video on all the time, think again. Again, the video is facing outward. Imagine seeing yourself on TV or Youtube in an embarrassing situation due to someone obtaining the film through a public information request
