Governor Rick Snyder says there is no reason to fire State Police Colonel Kriste Etue over a controversial Facebook post.
Etue has apologized for sharing a meme on her page that called NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem unpatriotic and “degenerates.”
Snyder says the post was “inappropriate,” but he considers the matter settled.
“She came out and apologized, and she’s done great service for the state,” Snyder said. “The way I view it is people make mistakes, she recognizes that, and let’s keep moving forward.”
