Mike Pence's NFL Game Walkout Cost Indiana Police $14000

During an October game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, Pence made a show to leave the stadium after he saw players kneel for "The Star-Spangled Banner", later tweeting that he "will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem".

On Tuesday, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released documents (see them here) that it obtained through the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. CREW says metro police paid almost $3,000 to regularly-scheduled officers and well over $11,000 in overtime pay.

Some critics called his walkout an expensive publicity stunt, while the VP's office said the trip to the game had been in the works for weeks. While numerous messages sent to Trump Jr.'s Twitter account went unanswered, he did occasionally respond and appeared to act on some of Wikileaks' requests, according to a report from the Atlantic. But an Air Force Cost Analysis Agency put the 2016 cost at about $30,000 an hour.

That does not include the cost to fly to Indianapolis for the game.

Brixmor Property Group Inc
BidaskClub raised shares of Brixmor Property Group from a strong sell rating to a sell rating in a report on Tuesday, June 27th. TRADEMARK VIOLATION WARNING: This story was first posted by TrueBlueTribune and is the sole property of of TrueBlueTribune.

Pence and his wife, Karen, left the October 8 game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers within minutes of their arrival, after roughly 20 49ers players kneeled in protest of police brutality against blacks.

But Pence's office has said the trip to the game - at which former star quarterback Peyton Manning was being honored - had been in the works for weeks, and predated the resurfacing of the National Football League protests as an issue. That belief was confirmed when President Donald Trump tweeted that he had told Pence to leave once players knelt.

When asked if it was a publicity stunt, Pence previously responded, "You know we had had plans for a long time to attend that game".
