The war against cops has been raging for the last year as race baiters like Barack Obama and Al Sharpton fan the flames of animosity and hatred within the black community against the police. Not that all police officers are perfect boy scouts. As with everyone, they are flawed human beings and there is sure to be a bad apple among them. But, they are not, as Obama and Sharpton lead blacks to believe, all bad racists who wake up each morning deciding how they are going to harass and/or kill a black person. But, that is the lie many people of various ethnicities have bought into and, for one Taco Bell worker, acting out based upon this lie cost him his job.
On Saturday afternoon, an unidentified police officer and his fiancé visited a Taco Bell in Newton, Kansas and placed an order. When they got their burritos, much to their shock and dismay, the word PIG in capital letters was scrawled across both of them. In case you don’t know, ‘pig’ is a derogatory way to refer to police.
The officer contacted the manager who acted swiftly. The manager apologized, refunded the officer’s money, and replaced it free of charge.
But even more than that happened as a result of this employee’s insult. The employee was fired.
Jeff Graves, senior director of operations for Taco Bell, said the employee who wrote PIG message as an insult to the police officer was fired.
Graves said, “We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever. He continued, “Our company, Taco Bell, has always been pro-law enforcement, military. We’ve always supported the police in our community. Many of our restaurants give police discounts when they come in and eat.”
The company will not stop there. They want to send a message to police that they are valued and appreciated. So, Graves shared what their plan is.
“We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community. In fact, I’ve even met with the lieutenant with the Newton Police Department this morning, and we’re even going to plan a community event working with the Newton Police officers within the next week just to show our support for the officers and the community.”
What a beautiful gesture by Taco Bell in sending the message that #AllLivesMatter to the police officers in their area who risk their lives every single day on the job. If only others, like those in the Obama regime and his ilk, would pay officers the same respect rather than lumping them all together categorically accusing them of being racist killers who target blacks just because.
