A cop’s wife in Texas went to shop for groceries at Kroger… a normal, every day activity that we all do. She was wearing a “Police Lives Matter / All Lives Matter” t-shirt. When she got to the checkout, the teenage racist, radical airhead would not check her out because she found her t-shirt offensive. You know… unlike all the cops Black Lives Matter has killed, the looting, the rioting and the general mayhem they commit when they get a hangnail. The cashier stepped away and complained to a co-worker that the t-shirt was a slap in her face and made her want to cry. Well, boo freaking hoo!
This cashier should be fired immediately for this. She massively offended the officer’s wife and made a huge, embarrassing scene. She made the police officer’s wife feel ashamed. There is simply no excuse for this kind of behavior.
Kroger was very slow to respond to this mess. When they did, they said they supported police officers and first responders and were handling the situation. I’ll bet. They have not contacted the police officer’s wife directly at all. That was merely a PR statement. I’ll bet that cashier is still working there as well. I think thousands of officers and their supporters should all don that t-shirt every time they go to Kroger’s now and see who throws a hissy fit over it. Make sure to bring your phones and record the melt downs… you know… for posterity.
From US Herald:
The incident took place at a local Houston area grocery store as a customer who would only give her name as “Meredith” was at the checkout counter ready to pay for her items, when the moronic store cashier wouldn’t check her out because she was wearing a tee-shirt that read “Police Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter.”
The customer who was interviewed on KTRK-TV spoke of her ordeal when for no apparent reason the teenage cashier suddenly stepped away from the checkout line, apparently in some sort of distress and spoke to a co-worker.
“She was stating that the shirt I had on was basically a slap in the face to her and she was doing everything she could not to cry,” Meredith said.
“She made me feel ashamed to have the shirt on, and I don’t appreciate that,” she said.
Meredith, who is married to a police officer, has complained to Kroger about the incident, has yet to respond, stating that it was still looking into the matter.
The Blue Bow foundation, which works to support police officers and their families has severed all ties with Kroger – good for them:
Blue Bow’s executive director Kimberly Colley, whose husband is also a police officer, felt that when this woman was treated like this, they had to do something immediately. She was very disappointed with the slow and lackluster response from Kroger.
“Our husbands risk their lives every single time they put on those uniforms. They’re walking targets and this is the least we can do to show there is support out there… We don’t want to do business with them if that’s how our citizens are going to be treated.” Can you blame them? I won’t do business with them either now. I may wind up ordering everything off the Internet by the time this is over.
If I have to shop there, I will wear one of those t-shirts with pride. And if they give my family grief over it, then we’ll dance and it will be my turn to make a scene. And I will excel at it, trust me.
