So, what happened with Michael Bennett – who is continuing the National Anthem protest started by Colin Kaepernick – that would put him ahead of wildfires?
Bennett had a run-in with Las Vegas police after the Mayweather-McGregor fight. He described it this way in the tweet that broke the story:
For the condensed version, Bennett says that he was caught up in the crowd running away from alleged gunfire, was singled out by police solely because of his race, roughly detained by police, held until his identity was verified, and then released. He then likens his situation to “Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, and Charleena Lyles.”
