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.

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.

DA Says Andrew Brown Shooting was ‘Justified’, ‘Tragic’

New video evidence was released on Tuesday to explain the justification.

Published

on

Weeks ago, the small town of Elizabeth City, North Carolina was rocked by another police-involved shooting of an unarmed man named Andrew Brown Jr. Police had arrived to execute an arrest warrant on Brown, who had attempted to flee the scene when he was shot by officers.  Lawyers for Brown’s family suggested that the shooting was an “execution”, and demanded that authorities release body cam footage of the killing to the public. Now, the county’s district attorney has stated that, while the incident was certainly “tragic”, the police officers were justified in their use of force. North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble said at a press conference on Tuesday that the deputy-involved shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. “while tragic, was justified” – and no law enforcement officers will be criminally charged in the case. Womble, the elected district attorney for Judicial District 1, which covers seven counties of the northeastern part of the state, said that Brown was shot at by three Pasquotank deputies, whose actions were “justified because Brown’s actions caused deputies to reasonably believe it necessary to use force to protect themselves and others.” Womble began playing four body camera videos during the press conference, which was broadcast by several news outlets. Brown ignored deputies’ commands to stop and began to drive his car directly at one of the officers, Womble said. He said the first shot fired at Brown’s car went through the front windshield, not the back as was previously reported. The newly released portion of video was available online, and is graphic in nature. https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1394751010938183684?s=20 There is no telling if the explanation will satisfy police reform protesters, however, and Elizabeth City could see renewed protests in the coming days.

CDC Mask Guidline Confusion Demonstrated in Latest Polling

Americans just don’t seem to trust the CDC.

Published

Around the nation, businesses are reopening to full capacity, fans are filling the stadium stands, and bands are announcing their touring plans, thanks to the diminishing perception of a threat stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been a long time coming for Americans, and some carry with them a wee bit of trepidation still about the coming recovery. A new poll shows that many Americans are even having a hard time processing the CDC’s latest mask-guideline adjustment. A significant portion of the public still believes in wearing a mask outside regardless of guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a recent survey. The survey indicates that forty-two percent of respondents believe everyone in their area should continue to wear a mask regardless of the CDC guidelines. Of the respondents, 39 percent said everyone should follow the CDC guidelines that state masks are only necessary outdoors when in crowds compared to only 19 percent of respondents who actually believe “everyone should do [what] they want regardless of guidelines.” And, somewhat surprisingly: Of those who believe in continuing to wear masks, broken down by party, the results were almost even; 36 percent of Republicans and 37 percent of Democrats want everyone around them to wear masks. Of course, the distrust that Americans naturally have for their government shouldn’t be overlooked either, as their handling of the coronavirus pandemic has spawned a number of protests and lawsuits around the nation.
