The assault on our police never seems to end. While many are being slaughtered in the streets by Black Lives Matter thugs, our police also continue to be treated unfairly by left-leaning establishments. Now the Cheesecake Factory is another establishment that you can add to your list to boycott, after a sickening story in Tacoma, Washington just came to light.
Police Officers were asked to leave the Cheesecake Factory by the General Manager due to the “no gun” policy of the business. While that was the manager’s excuse for telling the officers to leave, one of the Officers posted the story to the Corporate social media page stating that she and five fellow LEO’s were asked to leave because they were in unicorm. They were told that NO firearms were allowed on the property whether “they were law enforcement or not.”
Miriam Nichols, another officer that was present, sent a message to The Cheesecake Factory to address the issue. Nichols stated that the officers, three uniformed with duty weapon and badge visible, were asked to leave because of a gun policy. The manager by the name of “Will” stated that no person carrying a firearm, to include on duty law enforcement, would be welcome to eat there. Despite there being no signs addressing such a policy, Will asked the officers to leave.
“I am local law enforcement and 5 coworkers and I were told to leave by the general manager, Will… Everyone in our party was extremely upset at the lack of support we received at this location. One of our group members informed her husband who immediately contacted the establishment and was eventually routed to Will who told him that corporate has a strict no gun policy and that no person carrying a firearm, to include on duty law enforcement, we’re not welcome to eat there. When we walked in, no one in our group saw any sign that said no firearms allowed,” Nichols penned in a post to The Cheesecake Factory.
It didn’t take long for the Cheesecake Factory to start back-peddling. They responded to the Facebook post with,
“…our policy is to allow uniformed and identified law enforcement officials to possess their service weapons on our premises. To the extent that there was a miscommunication of our policy, we sincerely apologize.”
That response sounds pretty lame and lackluster to me. These businesses often seem to have employees that run certain branches by their own personal beliefs on certain issues and that is both unethical and unprofessional.
I guarantee you that if they get robbed the first people they’ll be calling for help will be the very same cops they threw out of their restaurant.
