CHICAGO, Ill (AP) -- Two Chicago police officers are facing reprimands after they were photographer kneeling next to an activist in what she called a show of support for NFL players protesting police brutality and racism.

The photo was posted on Instagram and show two black, uniformed officers kneeling beside the woman, each with a fist raised.

The caption 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 (sic)... and they also say yes... then you ask them to Kneel.!"

Chicago Police Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the officers will be reprimanded and reminded that department policy prohibits making political statements while in uniform.
