Burger King Reportedly Refuses Cops Service. After the Story Goes Viral Store Does Something Appalling

Published

on

A Burger King franchise located in Louisiana reportedly refused to serve police officers and when they were confronted for it, the individual who owned the restaurant demanded that the officers involved in the situation give them, the accused, an apology.

It’s hard enough to be a police officer, knowing that you are putting your life on the line each and every day in order to keep the community safe, and still catching flack from uneducated individuals who buy whatever the news media sells them.

It’s an under appreciated job, that’s for sure.

Two Assumption Parish deputies had just finished SWAT training in Zachary, Louisiana, and had stopped at a nearby Burger King in St. Francisville.

Lonny Cavalier, the public information director for the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office, told Blue Lives Matter that the two officers pulled into the drive-thru lane and attempted to place their order.

The officers were riding in a patrol vehicle. Cavalier told Blue Lives Matter, “[The officers] sat [at the drive-thru kiosk] for an extended period of time before someone finally let them order.”

Cavalier said that when one of the officers requested a chicken sandwich, an unidentified female inside cut him off and sarcastically said, “We’re out of chicken.”

The officer proceeded in an attempt to order a Whopper, and this time he was reportedly cut off by an unidentified male, who said, “We’re out of burgers, too.”

Apparently realizing that something was up, the officers asked those on the drive-thru intercom if the items were actually out of stock, or if they just did not serve police officers at this particular location.

“The only response was laughter,” Cavalier told Blue Lives Matter.

The officers pulled up to the payment window and parked. One cop exited the vehicle and stuck his head in the drive through window in order to speak with someone. The officer in question stated he heard laughter coming from inside.

The pair left the restaurant — without food — and reported the incident to their supervisor, stating they were “embarrassed and humiliated.”

After attempting to resolve the issue with Burger King’s corporate headquarters but making no headway, they decided to take the story to the Bayou Journal.

This angered the franchise owner who stated his employees never refused to serve the officers, calling the story an “outright lie” and that his employees refused service to “people who just happened to be police.”

Yeah, if you can’t smell the horse hockey floating off this man of very little brain, then you must be a sucker who was born yesterday.

The store managed did end up firing the employees in question, noting that there was surveillance footage of the encounter, but he refused to hand it over to the department.

This is absolutely unacceptable and totally unprofessional on behalf of both the store manager and Burger King corporate headquarters for not reaching out and correcting the egregiously disrespectful behavior of their employees.

Here’s to hoping they make the situation right.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
