A Georgia State Trooper’s response to being asked to kneel at a recent Black Lives Matter protest has gone viral.
Trooper O’Neal Saddler told bystanders that he has ‘respect’ for the protesters, but he has no intention of taking a knee for anybody … except for one person.
“If I didn’t have any respect, I wouldn’t [be here],” Saddler explained. “I was supposed to be out of town this weekend with my wife. I took off today, this weekend, but I’m out here to make sure y’all are safe.”
He continued, “Don’t go there with respect, OK? I have much respect, but I only kneel for one person,” to which someone in the crowd shouted, “And that’s God.”
“God,” he concurred.
This is Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler.

Protesters demanding that law enforcement take a knee is not a sign of solidarity, it is a sign of submission. That is what they want to see from police officers.
Saddler seems to recognize it as such, admitting he will only submit to God.
Countless numbers of people who have viewed the video expressed support for the state trooper, who is black, though his Facebook page has highlighted some who disgustingly attacked him for the response.
His reply to the criticism was all class.
“Any person has a free right in America to do as they want kneeling or not,” he wrote.
“Please remember the actions of bad officers don’t make me or other good officers bad,” he added. “The Floyd family and so many other families need prayer right now. So please pray (for) them.”
God bless this special trooper, one of GA’s FINEST, Mr. O’Neal Saddler. I thank him for his brave service! https://t.co/a9FG9wlxX1

While Saddler was refusing to bow to any man or movement, Democrat members of Congress were showing there’s no group they WON’T kneel before.
Lawmakers presented a police reform bill called the “Justice in Policing Act” on Monday, and in doing so took a knee.

These are the same Democrats who tried desperately to remove God from their party platform years ago. The same Democrats who would never take a knee to honor the millions of babies that die at the hands of their Godless abortion policies.
