Two Chicago officers are in trouble for kneeling in a Colin Kaepernick protest style in an Instagram image posted by a local activist.

The officers are facing a reprimand for violating department policy against political activity while on duty, the Chicago Tribune reports. 

In an Instagram photo posted Sunday, the two officers are shown kneeling on either side of Aleta Clark, a Chicago activist who goes by the online name "englewoodbarbie." 

The post reads: "That Moment when you walk into the police station and ask the Men of Color are they Against Police Brutality and Racism & they say Yes... then you ask them if they support Colin Kapernick... and they also say yes... then you ask them to Kneel.!"

Kneeling in protest to the violence that's taking place in Chicago where blacks are killing blacks. Or are they kneeling in approval that Chicago is a sanctuary city to illegals. Your cops you know the realities that's happening in the streets.

How can you swear to "uphold the constitution, my community, and the agency I serve" and not respect the flag that represents it? They should have been fired on the spot.

Disgrace to their shield and their Country! Should be fired!!!! Disgusting!
