“He was speaking… in kind of general terms about the training of law enforcement and it just coincided with the first day of our 157th academy… You look at those young men and women coming into the law enforcement profession and know what they’ve done to get there and live their lives correctly… for him to say that we said "clearly he doesn’t know 100% what he’s speaking of,"" said Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Sergeant J.D. Nelson to the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
Sergeant Nelson said, while he hopes Kaepernick accepts the invitation, they are more interested in starting a ‘dialogue with him.’
“He’s made claims about profiling and his experiences and we feel that we can learn from that and we know that he will learn from us,” he said.
Nelson said since posting the invitation on Facebook, their website has reached almost a million hits in less than two days.
