Lou Dobbs: "It's a disgrace" that anyone argues police brutality is an issue
Dobbs: "This is Nike endorsing the Kaepernick message which is that police brutally exists in wanton measure across this country. And it emphatically...does not. It is a disgrace, to me, that anyone would give that message credence."

LOU DOBBS (HOST): Well it's a strange decision. Obviously Lawrence thinks it's going to work from a business decision. What do you think?
REBECCA ROSE WOODLAND: I think from a business decision, Nike should also represent the other opportunity, the other side of the equation, whatever that is.
DOBBS: How about the police union?
WOODLAND: Exactly. There we go.
DOBBS: How about all of the foundations for the victims of violence, our police officers, law enforcement officers and by the way, our military who have lost service members, we've lost agents and policemen, we've lost -- you, know that would be a really important statement too.
The thing that is really at issue here in the national police union pointed this out. This is Nike endorsing the Kaepernick message which is that police brutally exists in wanton measure across this country. And it emphatically, and I happen to agree with the police union, it emphatically does not. It is a disgrace, to me, that anyone would give that message credence. And social justice should start with truth, and unfortunately that has never been part of Kaepernick's message nor now that of Nike.
