West Hartford Police Officer Refused service at a Dunkin’ Donuts … Was Told “We Don’t Serve Cops Here.”


This crap is happening far too often and its about time the public just start not going to places and spending money in places that are so disrespectful to authority. According to FOX- CT, a West Hartford police officer was told by an employee at the Dunkin Donuts located at 1234 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford, CT that “He didn’t get the message. We don’t serve cops here.” The police officer then walked out of the establishment with the manager and the employee following him, apologizing. Honestly, what is wrong with these people? Can you imagine the outrage and the boycott of their store if they had said the same thing to a black, gay or illegal? Maybe the West Hartford police do not need to do any more drive by’s of the Dunkin Donut’s at night or take their time if there is a call there.

An officer entered the Dunkin Donuts located at 1234 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford to purchase a cup of coffee. The store was busy with a number of customers inside.

According to police, as the officer was standing at the back of the line, an employee looked over at him said loudly, “He didn’t get the message. We don’t serve cops here.”

The officer exited the store without any workers saying anything further. Police said as the officer was returning to his cruiser, he was approached by the manager and the employee who was apologizing and stated she was only joking.

The officer told the employee that instead of apologizing to him, she should apologize to the people in the store who appeared to take offense to her comment.


UPDATE I: Police, Community React To Dunkin’ Donuts Worker’s Refusal To Serve West Hartford Cop.

The day after a West Hartford police officer was refused service at a Dunkin’ Donuts, people from Connecticut and across the country reacted on social media.

Dozens tweeted the accounts of the local Connecticut Dunkin’ Donuts franchise group and the national Dunkin’ Donuts headquarters, many users calling for a boycott of the company and for the employee to be fired.

Both accounts answered with the same response: “We are aware, Dunkin’ Donuts & our franchisees share a commitment to the well-being & fair treatment of all of guests. The crew member exhibited poor judgement & the franchisee has apologized to the police officer on behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts.”

Connecticut State Police tweeted support for the franchise on Sunday.

“Despite the actions of 1, we know our friends @DunkinDonuts support us,” the state police account posted.

The tweet was in response to an incident on Saturday at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 1234 Farmington Ave., during which a West Hartford police officer waiting in line was told by an employee that “we don’t serve cops here,” according to a police report.

Texas Police Chief Tells Atheist Group Who Demand That He Ban ‘In God We Trust’ Decals from Crusisers


It would appear that Adrian Garcia, head of the Childress Police Department in Childress, Texas, wasn’t willing to comply with a letter from the atheist group, Freedom From Religion Foundation that demanded he ban “In God We Trust” decals from police patrol cars.. The Texas police chief read their letter and raised them a kiss off. He responded to the group by telling them to  “go fly a kite,”   It is about time some one told these trolls off.

I give the police chief a lot of credit, my response would probably have been a bit different and just two words.

Go Fly a Kite

A Texas police chief has officially responded to atheists’ demands that he remove “In God We Trust” decals from patrol vehicles, telling critics to “go fly a kite.”

Adrian Garcia, head of the Childress Police Department in Childress, Texas, apparently wasn’t willing to entertain demands that the nation’s motto — which secular critics claim is an unconstitutional violation of the separation of church and state — be removed from vehicles.

“After carefully reading your letter I must deny your request in the removal of our Nations motto from our patrol units, and ask that you and the Freedom From Religion Foundation go fly a kite,” he wrote in a one sentence response that was posted on the department’s Facebook page.

Ditto to what the Right Wing News opined, “the faces of atheists when a Texas Police Chief told them they should ‘go fly a kite’ ….PRICELESS!”

Whataburger in Lewisville, Texas in Tells Two Police Officers the Restaurant had a Policy of not Serving Cops


A cashier at a Whataburger restaurant in Lewisville, Texas finds themselves in the frying pan as two police officers were allegedly told that the restaurant had a policy of not serving cops. REALLY? What the hell is going on in this country where we are continually seeing these acts of disrespect from restaurants where they are either refusing to serve police officers or in some cases let them use the restrooms?  Two north Texas officers, Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham, were working off-duty security at a construction site  when they decided to grab something to eat and entered the Whataburger.  The men were in uniform when they entered the restaurant and before he even got to the counter the man said, “We don’t serve police officers.” UNREAL. The manager tried to back peddle from his initial comment and apologize, but the damage had been done.

I guess we know how many people feel and the disrespect of people. I wonder what would happen if this same employee was denied service? Needless to say, the individual who made this pathetic comment as been fired. Free speech has consequences, doesn’t it?

A Whataburger location in Lewisville, Texas is under fire after a cashier allegedly told two police officers that the restaurant had a policy of not serving cops.

According to a local Fox affiliate, officers Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham stopped by the location while working night shifts at a nearby construction site. But before they could order, the man working the counter told them, “We don’t serve police officers.”

Given that Whataburger is a Texas staple– and Texas is not exactly a hotspot of anti-police furor– the incident received widespread coverage in local media and flooded Whataburger’s Facebook with angry comments. “This is my favorite place to eat and to hear that one of your establishments refused service to an officer is appalling,” reads one complaint. “I hope y’all can make it right…”

UPDATE I: The Whataburger restaurant has fired the employee and the company released the following statement:

“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.”

Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, Suspect in Kentucky Trooper’s Shooting Death was a ‘Black Lives Matter’ Advocate in St. Louis, MO

So there is no correlation between ‘Black Lives Matter’ and murdering of police, eh?

How ironic, Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, the suspect in the fatal shooting of Kentucky state trooper was an active supporter of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement according to his Facebook page, under the pseudonym ‘Jay MileHigh’. A supporter of the faux-movement, ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot’ did just that when he murdered Kentucky state trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder. Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, the man who gunned down Kentucky state trooper also attended Michael Brown’s funeral. Imagine that. This is the result of what happens when you glorify a punk who robs a convenience store and then attempts to assault a police officer and attempts to take away a cop’s gun.

Oh, and its supposed to be a non-violent movement at that. Sure it is. In the end, Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks died from suicide by police as the suspected murderer failed to listen to police after being cornered and lower his weapon.

Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks – ‘Black Lives Matter’ Advocate

A Missouri man suspected of fatally shooting a Kentucky state trooper was an active supporter of the “Black Lives Matter” movement who advocated against violence, a Facebook page shows.

Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, who was shot dead by police Monday morning, appears to have regularly posted videos and articles on police shootings under the pseudonym “Jay MileHigh,” Vocativ reported.

On that Facebook page, photos appear to show the 25-year-old St. Louis man attending a funeral service for Michael Brown, who was shot dead by a Ferguson police officer in 2014. It also shows him attending local protests in the days and weeks after.

In several photos, Johnson-Shanks is seen with his hands raised in the air with the caption, “hands up don’t shoot” — a phrase that originated from the unarmed teen’s death.

“Some of y’all don’t understand the more violence that occurs is less justice for Mike Brown the focus should be on him,” he posted on a “Justice for Mike Brown” Facebook page on Aug. 14, 2014, one week after Brown’s death.

The Facebook page has been since taken down

There is one less cop killer on Earth as Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks was shot and killed following a manhunt for the murderer. I guess the Black Lives Matter folks will protest his death as well.

The Kentucky State Patrol’s Special Response Team found the armed suspect in a wooded area close to I-24, the agency says.

“Johnson-Shanks refused verbal commands and aimed the weapon at the Troopers. An SRT Trooper discharged his agency issued weapon striking Johnson-Shanks,” police say. “He was transported via ambulance to the Caldwell Medical Center in Princeton, KY for treatment where he later succumbed to his injuries.”

Manhunt Underway For Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks After Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder Gunned Down After Traffic Stop (Update: Police Kill Suspect After Stand Off)

Once again we ask the question, Do Police Lives Matter?

A manhunt has been launched after the shooting death of 31 year old Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder. The incident occurred Sunday night, 9/13, at approximately 10:20 pm CT after Trooper Ponder pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 24. The driver fled from the traffic stop where the pursuit ensued with the suspect stopping abruptly around the 49 mile marker when the suspect jammed on his breaks. The suspect then got out of his vehicle and fired several shots into the police cruiser. The suspect then fled on foot and is still at large.  Trooper Ponder was taken to a hospital in Princeton, Kentucky, where he later died of his injuries.

Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder, 31, was killed after a driver fled from a traffic stop on Interstate 24 at 10:20 p.m. local time (11:20 p.m. ET).

“A pursuit ensued with the suspect stopping abruptly around the 49 mile marker, causing the front of Trooper Ponder’s police cruiser to make contact with the rear of the suspect vehicle,” Trooper First Class Jay Thomas said in a statement.

He added: “At this time, the driver of the suspect vehicle fired several shots into the police cruiser striking the hood, windshield and Trooper Ponder multiple times. The suspect fled the scene on foot.”

Rest in Peace Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder

UPDATE I: Shooting suspect identified the suspect as Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks.

The shooting suspect who murdered Kentucky state trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder has been identified as 25 year old  Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks. Police said he should be considered armed and dangerous.

The suspect has been identified as Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, 25, of Missouri. He was described as a black male who is about 5-foot-5 inches and 140 pounds.

Police say he ran off after shooting Ponder. A search was under way Monday morning in Lyon County, Ky.

Johnson-Shanks’ hometown couldn’t immediately be verified by police, but online records show him living in the Florissant area. He was arrested twice in 2014 in the St. Louis area, once for destruction of property and once for interfering with a police officer.

A social media site that appears to be Johnson-Shanks’ features a photo collage of Martin Luther King, Malcom X and Michael Brown. He reposted photos of memorial sites for Michael Brown and others killed by police, asking “Why is it taking so long to arrest those officers.”

UPDATE II: Cops shoot and kill alleged gunman who murdered rookie Kentucky state trooper.

A man suspected of killing a Kentucky trooper was shot and killed by state police early Monday morning, police confirmed to

Authorities said 25-year-old Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, of Missouri, was located in a remote rural area near I-24 around 7 a.m., following an all-night manhunt. Johnson-Shanks was armed with a handgun and did not comply with several commands to drop his weapon, according to Sgt. Mike Webb.

“That gave the trooper closest to him no choice but to fire his agency-issued weapon, striking him multiple times,” Webb said.
