Restaurant Owner Says Protesting NFL Players Should Be Killed

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

A co-owner of  Reefpoint Brew House, John Valko, went on a Facebook rant over NFL players taking the knee. The peaceful protest, started last season by former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick, was a show of solidarity for #BlackLivesMatter. In recent weeks, with the help of Donald Trump's Twitter frenzy, the focus of the protest has been twisted into a debate over respect for the flag. 

On Monday night, Valko took to his private Facebook page and let his feelings be known. 

Valko removed the post almost immediately, but thanks to screenshots, it never disappeared:
