Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler was filmed speaking to members of Black Lives Matter at a protest in Hartwell on Sunday. The demonstrators had asked Saddler to take a knee in solidarity with their cause; however, the State Trooper refused.
He told the protesters that he had “respect” for them and that he had made a sacrifice so that he could be there to keep them safe.
“If I didn’t have any respect, I wouldn’t [be here],” the officer is heard telling the protesters in a video. “I’m 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.”
