The “black lives matter” hate group has made it even more dangerous to be a police officer. Their anti-police rhetoric has spread like wildfire, and it seems that officers can’t even get a burger without dealing with some type of problem.
Officers Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham were working off-duty security at a construction site and decided to grab a bite to eat at Whataburger on Main Street in Lewisville, Texas.
When they approached the counter to order the employee, later identified as Calvin Brown, said to them, “We don’t serve police officers”
At first the officers thought he was joking, but the employee didn’t follow his comment with a “just kidding”, he didn’t say anything at all. Uncomfortable and confused, the officers left to eat elsewhere. They returned only to get the employee’s name.
“It really strikes a nerve personally and professionally because maybe he’s joking or maybe he’s not, but how do we trust that individual or that company to cook anyone’s food now,” Officer Beckham said.
After realizing the seriousness of his actions, the employee attempted to apologize, though the officers said it didn’t seem genuine.
Whataburger took swift action and immediately released a statement that read:
“We were appalled to hear of an employee refusing service to two officers, as we have proudly served first responders across our system for decades. As soon as we heard of this isolated incident, we began our own internal investigation overnight. The employee that refused service is no longer employed with Whataburger. We’ve also invited the officers back today so we can apologize in person and make this right.”
The police said that they understood the reason for the firing, but would have preferred he kept his job and just receive extra training.
When asked about the employees race Officer Magovern declined to answer. Although, with a name like Calvin Brown, I’m betting we already know.
“White, black, yellow, purple, green, male, female, androgynous, it doesn’t matter,” he said. “No person should make that comment to anybody.”
He pointed out that it would be equally wrong for police officers to refuse to help someone for any of those reasons.
A GoFundme account was set up for the employee with hopes of raising $10,000. Fox reports that so far they have raised $60.00.
