ESPN's Mark Jones announces he will refuse police protection when he calls Saturday's football game between Army and Cincinnati. The Canadian-born Jones, a 30-year employee for ESPN, said the following on Twitter:
"Police never saved me. Never helped me. Never protected me. Never taken a bullet for me. Never kept me safe in a protest. Never stopped the racist from taking my Black Lives Matter flag off my house.I could do without em".
In 2018 Jones thanked Syracuse police officers for their professionalism retrieving a bag with his belongings that he had misplaced. Jones has now changed the narrative to say a Black man found the bag, who handed it to police who returned it to Jones.
Jones also provided distasteful social media likes in regards to the season-ending knee injury sustained by San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Nick Bosa, a supporter of President Trump. One post featured a meme that said "When Nick Bosa realizes he cannot stand for the National Anthem for rest of the season"
I cannot understand the world I am living in right now - I am sure Stephen A. Smith and Max "Mayo" Kellerman have Jones' back.
