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.”
