Colin Kaepernick Explains Pig Cop Socks Shot At 'Rogue Cops'

Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick says the "pig cop" socks he wore to practice last month were only meant to represent the "rogue cops" who put communities in danger -- and not the good ones. 

Photos surfaced Wednesday of Kaepernick wearing socks featuring pigs wearing police hats -- taken from a practice back in August.

Kaepernick finally addressed the situation moments ago ... 

"I wore these socks, in the past, because the rogue cops that are allowed to hold positions in police departments, not only put the community in danger, but also put the cops that have the right intentions in danger by creating an environment of mistrust."

"I have two uncles and friends who are police officers and work to protect and serve ALL people. So before these socks, which were worn before I took my public stance, are used to distract from the real issues, I wanted to address this immediately."
