ramsSt. Louis – A police officers’ group called on the NFL to punish five Rams players who stood with their hands raised before trotting onto the field for pregame introductions Sunday.

The St. Louis Police Officers’ Association said it was “profoundly disappointed” with what it called a “display that police officers around the nation found tasteless, offensive and inflammatory.”

It called for the players involved to be disciplined and for both the league and team to issue a “very public apology.”

The so-called “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture has been commonly used by demonstrators protesting the decision of a St. Louis County grand jury to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in suburban Ferguson. Some witnesses said Brown, who was black, had his hands up before being fatally shot by Wilson, who is white. More   Update: NFL says it won’t discipline Rams players for Ferguson protest

    The FACT that Brown DIDN’T raise his hands to the police officer will never matter to the primitive bottom feeders.

    NBN. NFL is going down the same path the NBA did years ago and turning into thug-ball. I have stopped watching both and truly don’t miss it.
