Trooper kneels only for God

Empower Wisconsin | June 9, 2020

In one of the more powerful moments of the past two weeks of chaos, Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler stood up for his beliefs, his faith and his rights as an American. 

Saddler, who is black, refused to kneel Sunday during a Black Lives Matter protest in Hartwell, Ga., according to The Blaze. While the officer said he has “much respect,” he only kneels “for one person” — his God. 

Video shows Sadler being asked by a protester to kneel during the demonstration out of respect for the black community. 

“If I didn’t have any respect, I wouldn’t (be here),” the trooper told a female demonstrator. “I was supposed to be out of town this weekend with my wife. I took off today, this weekend, but I’m out here to make sure y’all are safe.” 

Saddler told the protesters not to “go there” on the topic of respect. 

“I have much respect, but I only kneel for one person,” he said. “The God I know.” 

The video has gone viral. Watch it here.
