And the timing was perfect.
A Georgia state trooper on hand for a recent www.westernjournal.com/business-owner-eviscerates- black-lives-matter-rioters-viral-video-wanted-loot-store/? ff_source=Email&ff_medium=CTBreaking&ff_campaign=breaking&ff_content =conservative-tribune">Black Lives Matter protest is lighting up social media, thanks to an answer he gave to a demonstrator who apparently demanded he take a knee as a sign of respect for the protesters cause.
I was supposed to be out of town this weekend with my wife, the trooper, identified by dailycaller.com/2020/06/07/oneal-saddler-georgia- state-trooper-kneel-black-lives-matter-protest/">The Daily Caller as ONeal Saddler, told the protester.
I took off today, this weekend, but Im out here just to make sure yall are safe. Dont go there with respect, OK?
I have much respect, but I only kneel for one person, and thats God.
He was asked to kneel today, and this was his response.
The video was reportedly shot in Hartwell, Georgia, about 90 miles southwest of Atlanta. It was www.facebook.com/Rubyphotography001/videos/vb.15001647 56692330/266233567914934/?type=2&theater">posted Sunday to a photography studios Facebook page, then shared on Twitter by Ryan Fournier, national chairman of Students for Trump.
