welcome back to mornings on 26789 time is 713:67:89 more now on the controversy over 49ers quarterback collin kaepernick and his refusal to stand. he said that a person can become a police officer in just six months and said that the cosmetologist needs more education and training than an armed officer. the alameda county sheriff's office has invited kaepernick to come see for himself to see what recruits go through. >> we thought it would be best for collin kaepernick to come out and see what we do. >> alameda county deputy
7:14 am
recruits go through 28 weeks of strange and a special swat training. a spokesperson will be joining us today on the 9 talking about the training and his invitation to collin kaepernick. and the san francisco police officers union is among those slamming kaepernick. the union president said that the law enforcement community cannot be continuously blamed for all of society's problems including racial divide in our country. it is not fair and it is not true. he wrote that in a letter to 49ers letter jen york and nfl commissioner roger goodell. while the controversy continues on whether he will sit on the bench or stand for the national anthem, there are questions whether he will even make the team. >> reporter: the niners need to
7:15 am
make a decision by saturday whether or not they'll keep collin kaepernick. they have that decision to make. there is also the p r issue that i'm sure the niners will have to deal with handling this issue back and forth whether collin kaepernick stands and where they stand on whether he will be continuing this with the national anthem and mr. is his play on the field as well. some say that's just not enough for him to stay on the team. that's because blaine gabbert has had a pretty good training camp. it appears that gabbert will be the starting quarterback. but the end of this week, as we mentioned, the niners need to make a decision. couple of things to point out. is the distraction for the national anthem too much for the team. and then there is the contract. he is guaranteed to $12 million. he is injured next year before training camp, the ninerss remain on the hook. this whole thing may be a ploy by kaepernick to stay on the team, some say despite his lack
7:16 am
lackluster camp. we talked about what he did. >> just move on from him they don't want him anyways. move on with chip kelly and focus on a young team and build on the future and look to next year's nfl draft when a guy like did he shawn watson will be available. >> kap went 2 for 6 for 14 yards in his last game. there are reports, one being from fox sport's jay glazer that kap may be released before the start of the season head coach chip kelly disputes that there is talk of him even sitting on the bench making him pretty much inactive for the rest of the year but certainly a lot of talk. niners have to make a big decision by the end of this week on saturday whether or not
7:17 am
to keep collin kaepernick. some say let him go. when we did speak to folks over 95.7 the game, many of their listeners agree with him taking the stand. they don't agree with the way he is doing it and some of most of them say, according to their listeners, they should just let kap go. our ktvu question of the day deals with this issue. if you could make the decision, would you keep collin kaepernick on the 49ers? why or why not? >> let us know what you think. post the comment on our ktvu facebook page. you can also tweet us with the hashtag ktvu. we will help get you out the door and to where it is that you are going. sal castaneda is here to do just that. >> all right, gasia and dave. we do have slow traffic all over the place and we are looking at the san mateo bridge right now because of it pretty busy trying to cross the bay, as you can see. it's not stop and go right at
