Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd calls the act of kneeling during the national anthem by NFL football players abhorrent. First off, I don't think we should have made a political-social event out of a football game, said Judd at a news conference on Wednesday.

Grady Judd kneeling during the national anthem is abhorrent

Second of all, I think it's abhorrent that you would not stand up during the national anthem when you've got men and women scattered around the world protecting you and keeping you safe while you make multiple millions of dollars playing a game. It's abhorrent, he said.

It's not the right place, it's not the right time, it's not the right venue, he continued. 

Several hundred football players took a knee this week during the national anthem, while other teammates locked arms in solidarity and several teams stayed entirely in the locker room. 

Last week, several players continued the movement started last year by former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but President Donald Trump’s comments and tweets saying protesting players should be fired sparked a wide response over the weekend.
