Michael Bennett needs to grow up, along with the NFL | Letter

Why is Michael Bennett claiming race as to why he was singled out by Las Vegas police (during an incident Aug. 26)? There were a huge amount of other black men that the police were protecting and they didn’t get arrested.

Could it be that Michael caused this incident, like running when the police told everyone to get down? Or arguing with the police? Of course they are going to react, they are protecting everyone in the place and themselves.

Grow up Michael and the NFL. You aren’t privileged at all, as a matter of fact, I boycotted the Seahawks game and guess what, no one died. You are entertainers and that is all.
