DETROIT (AP) - The mayor of Detroit says the head of the state police has committed a “serious breach of trust” by sharing a Facebook post that called some NFL players “anti-American degenerates.”

Mayor Mike Duggan’s statement doesn’t specifically call for the ouster of Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue. She has apologized, and Gov. Rick Snyder says he won’t fire her.

Etue shared a Facebook post signed “we the people.” It calls NFL players who kneel during the national anthem “millionaire ingrates who hate America and disrespect our armed forces and veterans.”

Duggan says the message “shows a lack of respect for the people she serves and the post she holds.” He was joined in the statement by Wayne County Executive Warren Evans.
