"All of the people behind me risk their lives, so to speak, to protect folks, and they are standing with Kaepernick because they understand how important it is to push back on the structure", City Councilman Jumaane Williams of Brooklyn said, with the officers standing behind him. The AP reported the officers who gathered were "mostly minority".

While most of the officers at the rally were African-American or other minorities, one notable exception was 81-year-old former NYPD officer Frank Serpico, whose whistle-blowing efforts on corruption in the department inspired the 1973 Al Pacino movie "Serpico".

NYPD Sgt. Edwin Raymond, who was leaving for work duties after the rally, explained that racial reconciliation is something our country has long needed, yet it has been ignored for just as long. "As members of law enforcement, we can confirm that the issues he is saying exist in policing, and throughout the criminal justice system, indeed exist", said Sergeant Raymond. "We chose to gather here today because of the way he's being railroaded for speaking the obvious truth", Raymond added.

Serpico has become well-known for his activism regarding police brutality, and on Saturday he took a knee and raised a fist with his fellow brothers in blue. Rather, he opted out of an option-year in his contract. Griggs said Kaepernick remained unsigned exclusively due to his silent boycott of the national anthem last season.

Some have speculated that Kaepernick has been blackballed by National Football League owners because of his controversial public stance and not his quarterbacking ability.

Riggs warned that if Kaepernick remains unsigned to a deal as of 5 p.m. September 17, "We are going to have the world's largest tailgate, and that tailgate will not go into Mercedes-Benz Stadium". "The clubs are making those individual evaluations".

Colin Kaepernick can't find a home in the NFL, but items related to his national anthem protest have found a place in the Smithsonian.
