Sometimes the news can be entertaining and provide a bit of levity. With police brutality seemingly dominating the headlines (along with Trump and Hillary), the following incident provides a little relief from the madness.
A Kentucky police officer entered a Chuck E. Cheese and was refused service because he had a gun in a ‘no gun’ zone of Chuck E. Cheese. Clearly the employee (probably new) did not understand exceptions are made for law enforcement, however the officer was clearly not happy. According to My FoxLA:
The gun-toting officer encountered the problem at the Chuck E. Cheese in the Greenwood Mall in the city of Bowling Green, prompting outrage from some people, including a sheriff from a neighboring jurisdiction, WBKO-TV reported Friday.
“I was upset,” Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle told the station. “I was shocked for that officer and also for all the patrons there because you know if you have an obvious police officer and they’re wearing police clothing, then I don’t understand what the problem would be having someone like that with the training and experience of a police officer [coming] into an establishment.”
Chuck E. Cheese’s national headquarters called the situation an unfortunate misunderstanding.
Yes, it could be considered heinous act of disrespect, however Chuck E. Cheese corporate response shows they don’t mean to exclude or disrespect law enforcement, that it was just a matter of training.
Aren’t you glad you aren’t that employee’s supervisor?
