Two men from Laurel County are upset about Kentucky's decision to kneel during the national anthem. A video pulled from Facebook shows the Laurel County Sheriff and Jailer, John Root and Jamie Mosley, respectively, burning articles of Kentucky Wildcats clothing to oppose the Wildcats' choice to take a kneel ahead of Saturday's 76-58 win over the Florida Gators. The UK players elected to kneel in order to peacefully protest against the ongoing injustices happening across the country. The video shows Root talking over a fire while arguing the clothing deserves to be burned before he tosses one of his shirts into the flames. "This is what I think about the program, Coach, until you can get these guys under control and lead by example," Root says in the video before cutting over to Mosley, who also adds a shirt into the fire. Here's the entire two-minute clip. https://twitter.com/KySportsRadio/status/1348447098728022018
