A Rhode Island town council has voted to ask its departments

to refrain from purchasing Nike products Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey , one of a handful of local governments or agencies that have called for boycotts in recent weeks.The North Smithfield Town Council passed the resolution on a 3-2 vote Monday evening, Council President John Beauregard said. The resolution is nonbinding.Beauregard, a former state trooper, is upset with Nike's decision to use former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in an ad campaign. The town's administrator didn't know of any specific Nike products that municipal departments are currently using.The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island said the town could be held legally and financially liable for violating the First Amendment and told members of the council: "Just don't do it."The mayor of a New Orleans suburb recently rescinded a similar directive based on an attorney's advice.Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn, a Republican, had issued a memo saying that Nike products could not be purchased for use at city recreation facilities. It also required the parks and recreation director to approve all athletic purchases by booster clubs using the facilities. The order prompted a protest that included three members of the NFL's New Orleans Saints and hundreds of others.And Mississippi's public safety chief said over the weekend that state police would no longer buy Nike products, saying that Nike doesn't support law enforcement and the military. It wasn't immediately clear how much gear the state police agency buys from Nike, though the department has bought shoes, shirts and tactical training uniforms from the company. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant lauded the decision.A Nike spokesman said Monday he couldn't comment on the various governmental actions.Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and social injustice.Beauregard said he proposed taking a stance in North Smithfield because he feels Kaepernick has been disrespectful toward police. He said it's not about kneeling during the anthem.In a statement released after the vote, the ACLU of Rhode Island described the resolution's passage over the objects of residents who opposed it as "shameful.""By attacking the right to peacefully protest and refusing to recognize the racial injustice prompting it Cheap DeForest Buckner Jersey , the resolution shows a disdain for both freedom and equality," the statement said. "Rhode Island is better than this."Golden Nuggets: Game Day in Arrowhead Good morning folks (and good afternoon to our friends much further East), 49ers football is back for their third game of the season today! The young 1-1 team travels to Kansas City to face the offensively-potent Chiefs, led by second year quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Not surprisingly, he’s put up record numbers in his first two starts of the season, completing nearly 70% of his passes, including 10 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. He’s aided by an embarrassment of riches in the speed department thanks to RB Kareem Hunt and WR Tyreek Hill, as well as reliable targets in TE Travis Kelce and WR Sammy Watkins. There’s no doubt that the 49ers defense will have their hands full today with this high octane offense. Robert Saleh’s unit has largely limped out of the gate, playing the kind of uninspiring ball that doesn’t match up to the amount of talent that currently exists. While CB Richard Sherman has been a pleasant surprise in his return, the secondary as a whole has been generally unimpressive http://www.49erscheapstore.com/k_waun-williams-jersey-cheap , despite the mounting evidence leading into the season that this unit could be one of the strengths of the team. In fact, standout safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Adrian Colbert have been something of a let down through two games, and CB Ahkello Witherspoon’s play last week was so poor that it necessitated his benching in the fourth quarter.The pass rush, as expected, has been abysmal outside of defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, who has been an absolute terror from the interior of the defensive line. While there’s no light at the end of the proverbial tunnel for that issue as of yet, the defense will see the long-awaited return of linebacker Reuben Foster. The versatile and elite-when-available defender will slot in alongside rookie phenom Fred Warner to create, what should be, an extremely efficient defensive core, that should ideally elevate all phases of the defense. As it currently stands Youth Richard Sherman Jersey , however, Tartt may not take the field due to an injury sustained last week - which only makes Foster’s return that much more important in the short & intermediate coverage game, as well as run support.Offensively, the 49ers have some serious work to do. Luckily, what was recently an impressive defense in Kansas City has become an inefficient and inviting matchup this season. Unfortunately, however, there remains the ugly truth that the Chiefs are going to hang a ton of points up this week (and probably every other week), and it’ll be up to the 49ers offense to keep this game competitive.
