Two San Francisco Police officers take a knee in solidarity with protesters outside Mission Police Station on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.
A San Francisco police officer took a knee with George Floyd protesters during a massive demonstration in the Mission District.
The next day, his supervisors sent him home early for insubordination.
The problem is, Rhodes wears the earrings to work nearly every day without issue.
And he also believes he should not be restricted from wearing earrings because he identifies as non-binary.
Sgt. Michael Andraychak, a San Francisco Police Department spokesperson, declined to comment on personnel issues.
San Francisco police officers are barred from engaging in political activity while on-duty. »
