Dunkin Donuts employee accused of REFUSING to serve police officers because he “doesn't serve cops”

StaffRebel Columnist

A New York Dunkin Donuts employee is accused of refusing to serve two police officers and even allegedly said, “I don’t serve cops”.

According to Fox News, the officers, dressed in suit pants, shirts and ties, with badges and pistols on their belts, walked into the store and waited in line to order. When they got to the counter, the employee ignored them and asked the customer behind the officers what he wanted.

The confused customer then told the employee the cops were ahead of him, but the employee responded by saying “Yeah, I know, but I don’t serve cops.”

Detectives’ Endowment Association President Michael Palladino called the action “disgraceful”.

“I assume it is an isolated incident. Nevertheless, Dunkin’ Donuts corporate should issue an apology to the NYPD and until that happens, I have asked detectives and their families to refrain from patronizing the stores,” he said, adding that he believes the city's political leaders are partially to blame.

He said he believes city politicians “encouraged this type of behavior by constantly demonizing cops and pushing their decriminalization agenda. It’s time for the same politicians to step up, take some responsibility and condemn what occurred.”

The manager says the store kept getting phone calls from other officers asking why they weren't served, “And I kept trying to explain that we serve everyone, we have nothing but respect for the police, and that they were standing at the wrong counter. It was busy at the time, and we were busy serving customers.”

When they get a call for help form that store, take their damn time getting there.

I guess police are low on the victim-hood/entitlement points scale, right down there with us White, Christian, males, so there will be no story…
Now if the refusees were any-colour-but-White, Moslem, genderconfused, SJW snowflakes or some such wierdness, that would be an entirely different story! Gotta love that identity politics.
Liberalism, the ideological religion of hypocrisy and stupid people…

I find this very distasteful.
The worker and the manager of the store should be held accountable.
They are being paid by a corporation that’s many service is supplying service to all customers.
To refuse one customer that isn’t doing damage to the store or creating a problem, stand against all the corporations ISO standards.

Dunkin Donuts may have to file for bankruptcy if professional donut aficionados (cops) boycott thier stores.

This Dunkin Donuts franchise deserves the backlash that’s on it’s way. Expand the boycott to all franchises until Corporate deals with this, and forces the manager and bigoted employee to publicly apologize.
I think health inspectors should schedule multiple surprise visits at a various locations.

The officers have one story, the manager has a different story. Hmmm.

So someone behind the officers was served ahead of the policemen. pretty straight forward. Obviously they were in the correct queue. I bet they have been in enough donut shops to know where to order.

Best thing is for all the police in that division to boycott that Dunkin Donuts. Lots of donuts shops like having police come in; thieves stay away from places police congregate. Its like painting a target on the shop.

This is an instance of the manager (maybe who agrees with the employee) refuses to issue an apology standing behind the employee. Really good move, idiot. I bet corporate Dunkin Donuts is having a fit over this public relations fiasco.

How about this; Blue Lives Matter – a lot.

One simple solution to consider, along with the voluntary boycott of Dunkin Doughnuts, is for police pension funds to divest themselves of any shares in the company: a dumpin dough head strategy. Actually, along with that, put D/D under surveillance for potential drug and black market deals by customers…sort of like sanctions.

Is not that the call of SJW’s with their BDS strategy? So the SJW’s should be thrilled it is put to effect, and would support the police ;)
