During a speech in Alabama, President Trump was criticized for saying that NFL players who disrespect the flag ought to be fired on the spot. In response, three NFL teams, the Seahawks, Titans, and Steelers, stayed in their locker rooms during the national anthem ahead of NFL games on Sunday.  More than 100 NFL players from several teams across the country have kneeled or locked arms during the anthem instead of standing at respectful attention. -GEG

Three NFL teams stayed in their locker rooms during the national anthem ahead of NFL games on Sunday, as a growing number of players from other teams joined in protest by kneeling on the field.

In all, more than 100 NFL players from several teams across the country kneeled or locked arms Sunday, after President Trump lashed out at the protesters and called for those who disrespect the flag to be fired or suspended. One Steeler was seen just outside the players’ tunnel at Soldier Field: offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger.

The official county autopsy mentioned that Floyd had a concentration of the drug Fentanyl at three times the lethal level. We hesitated to publish this fact and risk being accused of trying to cover up police brutality, which certainly is not the case. We have a long record of reporting on cases of police brutality when warranted.

The COVID-19 fatality rate for children is so low that the CDC calculates it at 0.0% for anyone under 19 years of age. Isolation creates depression, lack of sleep, poor cardiovascular function, cognitive decline, and impaired immunity. This is a must-watch.
