Stephen A Smith: Cleveland Police Not Holding Flag Because of Browns Protest Are ‘Disrespecting the Flag More Than the Players Are’

Published

Spread the Truth

Breitbart: ESPN “First Take” co-host Stephen A. Smith said Cleveland police and other first responders refusing to hold the American flag on the field in response to the Cleveland Browns protesting the national anthem is more disrespectful than NFL players protesting during the national anthem.

“I think they are the ones disrespecting the flag, as opposed to the athletes,” Smith argued.

He continued, “If you’re protesting and you’re protesting peacefully, and the Constitution of the United States literally allows for that, for you to be the benevolent association or anybody else that then stands up and says we will not support an organization who is basically saying they agree with you, but they’re supporting the rights of their players because those players are American citizens, you are disrespecting the flag more than the players are. Because the players are exercising the rights given to them by those who fought and died and bled for what this country stands for. They’re not violating it. They’re exercising their rights. You could dislike it and you have the right to dislike it.”

Three UCLA Basketball Players Arrested in China for Shoplifting at Louis Vuitton Store

Three UCLA Basketball players have been arrested in China for shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton next to their hotel.

NBC News Reports 

Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were detained at the team’s hotel in Hangzhou, about 100 miles southwest of Shanghai, on Tuesday according to ESPN, which broke the story.

Ball is the younger brother of NBA rookie Lonzo Ball of the Los Angeles Lakers, and the son of LaVar Ball, outspoken former player and founder of sportswear company Big Baller Brand.

The arrests came a day ahead of President Donald Trump’s arrival in China on a visit, where he is expected to meet President Xi Jinping.

A spokeswoman for the police bureau of Hangzhou told NBC News that three players were being detained and would be released or charged within 48 hours of their arrest. ESPN reported the players were released on police bail.

The UCLA team is in China for a season-opening game against Georgia Tech as part of the Pac-12 college sports conference.

LaVar Ball, who is also in China for the Nov. 10 opening of a pop-up store in Shanghai, and for his upcoming Facebook Watch reality show “Ball in the Family,” gave few details to reporters about his son’s arrest.

“He’ll be fine,” Ball told ESPN. “Everyone’s making it a big deal. It ain’t that big a deal.”

A spokesman for the Hangzhou Hyatt said the players were arrested at the hotel and were still registered as guests Wednesday.

Larry Scott, commissioner of the Pac-12, expressed disappointment at the arrests. “Yesterday in Hangzhou, China, UCLA student-athletes were involved in a situation, and UCLA is cooperating fully with local authorities,” he said in a statement.

“We are very disappointed by any situation that detracts from the positive student-athlete educational and cultural experience that this week is about. Whether in the United States or abroad, we expect student-athletes to uphold the highest standards.”

UCLA Athletics said in a statement: “We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China. The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time.”

Mike Ditka gave a radio interview on Tuesday where he said “There’s Been No Oppression in U.S. in Last 100 Years”.
“All of a sudden, it’s become a big deal,” Ditka said on Westwood One’s Monday Night Football pregame show, in response to a question about players protesting social injustice by taking a knee during the national anthem. “Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people. I think the opportunity is there for everybody.”

Ditka received both acclaim and criticism following the interview.
