COLIN KAEPERNICK OFFERS TO PAY FOR LAWYERS OF MINNEAPOLIS PROTESTERS

Colin Kaepernick’s charitable arm, the Know Your Rights Camp, is launching an initiative to hire top defense lawyers for people arrested protesting police brutality in the Minneapolis area, the organization’s website says.

The Wall Street Journal first reported Kaepernick’s offer.

The new Know Your Rights Camp Legal Defense Initiative says it has “identified and teamed up with” defense lawyers in the Minneapolis area, calling it “our legal right to address [injustice within our community], by any means necessary.”

The organization’s decision comes amid widespread protests in the city following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died Monday evening, shortly after being violently apprehended by Minneapolis police.
