A few days ago I told you about a police officer who had just finished shopping at the local Walmart and ran into a bigoted cashier who was NOT going to let this officer in uniform have a nice day. When it was his turn to checkout, the female clerk pointed out her skin color (presumably black) and then told him that she wouldn’t allow him to buy his items. A second employee reportedly laughed at the way that the officer was treated. The incident happened at the Walmart on 13th Street in St Cloud, FL sparking outrage through social media.
Walmart released a statement saying, “We take these things seriously and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind in our stores.
We value the relationships we have with law enforcement agencies throughout the country and we’ve met with the St. Cloud Police Department to address their concerns. We want everyone to be treated with respect whether they are in our stores or anywhere in the community.
The cashier who was involved in this situation no longer works in our store.”
Thanks Walmart for doing the right thing. There has been an increase of instances where our Police Officers are being disrespected by workers:
KFC Employee Bragged About Spitting In Cop’s Food, But What The Manager Does Was Just As Bad!
Employee At Baton Rouge Mexican Restaurant Accused Of Spitting In Police Officers’ Drinks
North Carolina Deputies Harassed, Served Tampered Food At Fast Food Restaurant…
For our guys in Blue who risk their lives everyday to keep the community safe to have to be treated this way at lunchtime, it makes me sick. Make sure you thank a cop for helping the community to offset this barrage of nastiness against them.
