Dunkin’ Donuts Employee Denies Cop Service, The Franchise’s Response is Fantastic

Published

A Dunkin’ Donuts employee discovered the hard way that displaying your politics publicly while you’re on the job, especially when they involve denying service to police officers, is a really bad idea.

The owner of a franchise learned of an incident where an employee wouldn’t serve an on-duty law enforcement professional promptly responded by giving them a swift boot to the backside.

Here are the details.

According to WJW-TV, the cop involved in the incident was Officer Frank Garmback.

The station reported that Garmback approached the counter to order an iced coffee but was immediately rejected.

A family member spoke to WJW, who recalled the incident on Garmback’s behalf.

“He wanted an iced coffee,” the family member said. “Walked up to the counter and the gentleman told him, ‘I don’t serve cops,’ and turned his back and walked away.”

According to WJW, Paul Patel — the shop’s owner — said that he fired the employee that very same day.

“I came in right away, and we got rid of him,” Patel told WJW. Patel noted that the employee tried to pass the service refusal off as a joke when confronted.

“That’s not a joke,” Patel said. “That’s not a good joke. We can’t tolerate jokes like that.”

This is a prime example of a shop owner expressing his beliefs in the free market, running his business as he sees fit. In all honesty, principally speaking, there’s nothing wrong with a company choosing to deny anyone service. However, just because they have the right to do so, that doesn’t always mean it’s morally correct to take that course of action.

Regardless, the employee was not the owner of the establishment and thus his refusal to serve wasn’t based on the wishes of the person in charge of the shop. The owner doesn’t want that kind of thing in his store, therefore he fired the employee.

Being a police officer is a very hard job and these individuals sacrifice much for our community. Being kind to them isn’t somehow an inconvenience. It’s a delight that should be practiced by every member of the community.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
