Arkansas resident Jimmie Cavin decided to pay a visit to the West Little Rock mall last Thursday to make his feelings known at the local NIKE store.
The Arkansas native pulled up with his truck across the parking lot, well away from the front entrance to the Nike store, and quietly sat on the tailgate of his truck while he slowly unraveled a flag supporting America’s law enforcement.
Cavin, smiling, began silently waving the flag, which ironically freaked out the store manager huddled within the store.
About 15-minutes later a police van pulled up next to Cavin’s truck, and out came a Little Rock police officer to inquire about the complaint from the Nike manager peering out the window. The officer informed Cavin he’s responding to a call regarding a “disturbance,” even though Cavin never approached the store or talked to a single Nike shopper.
“Now what better place to wave the flag than right here in front of the Nike store,” Jimmie Cavin can be heard saying in a video he posted to Facebook.
The video captured Cavin smiling and sitting on his truck across the street from the store entrance with a blue-line flag fluttering in the wind.
“My priority is supporting law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics,” Cavin told local news station KLRT-TV.
Moreover, according to KLRT, Cavin has popped up in different locations all across Arkansas over the years in support of law enforcement and first responders, proudly waving his pro-police flag.
As for Nike freaking out, Cavin explained to KLRT on Friday, “It was lunchtime, so they were full and I know people were watching from over there.”
Adding, “I guess probably 15 minutes into it, a Little Rock patrol car pulled up.”
“Of course, we chatted,” Cavin says.
“He realized I wasn’t doing anything wrong.”
Cavin says, almost as quickly as they arrived, police left.
“So, Nike called the police on the guy supporting the police for supporting the police,” Cavin says.
The irony, of course, is the sanctimonious way Nike attempts to portray lackluster former quarterback Colin Kaepernick as some type of hero for disrespecting police and our National Anthem.
Kaepernick is the same “piece-of-work” who donated $25,000 to a group that supports convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, a former member of the militant Black Panthers Party.
Shakur was convicted for gunning down New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster in 1973. She broke out of prison and fled to Communist Cuba, and is still on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, becoming the first woman named to the list, and only the second domestic terrorist, the agency said.
Trooper Foerster who was only 34, was shot and killed with his own service weapon after backing up another trooper who had stopped a vehicle containing two men and a woman on New Jersey Turnpike.
Rosa Foerster, the widow of Trooper Foerster, now 72-years old, in a recent interview said, “I hope that they can get her. She’s still there. She has her freedom, and I don’t have my husband. That’s what’s hard about it.”
To date, there are currently 39-police officers who’ve died in gun battles in 2018, however, the number of police officers that have died in “the-line-of-duty stands currently at 105.
Remember those numbers that next time you see a Nike ad showcasing an afro quaffed Kaepernick lamenting about “his sacrifice.”
