Hero Cop Fights Back, Sues "Woke" NFL Over Systemic Racism Claims (7 Cartoons)

 A hero cop in Indianapolis just hit back at the “woke” NFL over claims his killing of a black man in the line of duty was a systemically racist act.

Via Fox News:

“An Indianapolis police officer filed a lawsuit against the NFL on Monday over video and tweets the league published last year claiming that a Black man he shot and killed died because of “systemic racism.”

The NFL, as part of the league’s “Say Their Stories” campaign, honored Dreasjon Reed in a tweet in December. The NFL said Reed was “one of the many individuals being honored by players and coaches this season through the NFL’s helmet decal program.”

Indianapolis Metro Police Department Officer De’Joure Mercer filed the lawsuit in the federal Southern District of Indiana Court. Mercer’s lawyer, Guy A. Relford, wrote in the complaint that the materials the league published imply that Mercer “committed occupational misconduct and even criminal acts during the May 6 (e)ncounter with Reed, similar to that which were inflicted upon George Floyd.”

Relford called Mercer a hero in a separate statement, according to FOX 59.

“De’Joure Mercer is a hero. He tracked down a very dangerous criminal wanted by the police, who was a threat to the citizens of Indianapolis,” Relford said in the statement. “He put his life on the line and was nearly killed in that effort. He was completely exonerated after an exhaustive investigation into the death of Mr. Reed. For NFL Enterprises then to suggest he was involved in police or racist misconduct is totally false, defamatory and unacceptable. What happened here has nothing to do with racism.

“While we support NFL Enterprises’ efforts to address social justice issues, Officer Mercer is taking a stand for the many, many good cops on duty across America. He is standing up for his friends and colleagues and sending a message that before you accuse a decorated police officer of misconduct in a national campaign, you had better get your facts straight.”

This seems like good news and it is very likely that the NFL will be forced to make a big payout in this case.

More police officers need to hit back and sue those who claim they are racist, when in fact they are not.

What is good for the goose is also good for the gander, as they say. The NFL needs to pay out millions for what they have done to this hero police officer.
