Kroger grocery stores seem to be the latest hot spot in the war against the police. At a TX Kroger a police officer’s wife, wearing a Police Lives Matter / All Lives Matter T-shirt was stunned when the cashier stepped away from the register, refusing to checkout her groceries, saying that the T-shirt was a slap in her face and that she was doing all she could not to cry. A similar incident took place in a LA, when a Kroger cashier refused service to a cop in uniform Moonbattery Article.
In both of these incidents the cashiers, apparently, were not fired. For that, shame on Kroger.
Compare the above to a situation at Going’s Barbeque & Steak Co. in Crosby, TX, just outside of Houston. There, after a group of officers sat down to eat, one Deputy noticed a dishwasher playing an N.W.A. rap song, singing along, and pointing to the dining area where the police were seated during the song’s repeated “F— Tha Police” sections. The dishwasher, noticing the Deputy, looked at him and started laughing.
Rightfully, Going’s Barbeque & Steak fired the dishwasher, and is holding a police eat free day to make up for his employee’s stupidity.
It is good to see a business backing the police. And Kroger really needs to rethink keeping employees that can’t handle dealing with the public – which includes police officers, their families, and generally people that may not agree with the employees’ opinions.
Now I have to think that those Kroger cashiers were influenced by all the BLM madness going round these days. And that madness, sadly, is taking its toll on otherwise decent, well behaved, law abiding black youth as well. Take, for instance, the situation described by Savannah, GA area officer, Lieutenant Tim McMillan, in a recent Facebook post that has gone viral.
Now Lord knows the police are human. And when they err, it can be really bad. But all police, as shown by Officer McMillan’s post, are not evil monsters itching, as BLM would have you believe, to gun down blacks. But the poisoned atmosphere brought about by BLM and its supporters, like obama, in demonizing all police is causing not only more police-civilian violence in the black community, but also deeply biasing black youth against the police. And that, if not corrected, can carry forward for a long, long time. And to echo officer McMillan, I just wish somebody would fix that. And such fix should begin at the top.
