From BizPac Review
A Krystal restaurant in Alabama has come under fire after it was alleged that its staff refused to service a local police officer.
According to ABC 33/40, the company admitted to the offense.
The officer’s wife, Brittany Urresta, posted about the incident to Facebook. She detailed how her husband was ignored at the drive-in while in his patrol car, and how the staff walked away from him when he went inside the establishment.
It’s a shame that police officers that protect and serve their communities are denied service. After waiting in the…
The post has gone viral with many people slamming the company.
“We take this allegation very seriously and have spoken with the entire Irondale Krystal team in addition to reviewing surveillance footage. Our policy is to serve all guests promptly and with a smile. In this case, we clearly did not meet the officer’s expectations and we want to correct it. We want to invite this individual as well as the entire Irondale Police department into our restaurant for a meal to demonstrate our appreciation for what they do,” Krystal said in a statement.
“We value their contributions and the relationship we have with them and with police departments in all of our communities. If this officer in any way felt slighted, we want him to know that we apologize and that was in no way, shape or form our intent.”
An Irondale cop believes he was denied service at Krystal because he is a police officer after he waited for more than 20 minutes to get his food which never came.
The incident happened at the Krystal on Crestwood Boulevard about 4 p.m. Friday, according to Irondale police Chief Ken Atkinson. The officer doesn’t want to be identified or interviewed, Atkinson said.
The officer’s wife posted this on Facebook over the weekend: “It’s a shame that police officers that protect and serve their communities are denied service. After waiting in the drive-thru in his patrol car, they never acknowledged my husband’s order. He went inside in his uniform and every worker walked away from the counter to the back of the store.”
Krystal spokeswoman Kim Miller late this afternoon said video surveillance showed the officer did visit the drive-thru and went inside. “We can also verify that the service he experienced was unacceptable, but it was also unacceptable for the other three guests in front of him at the counter and at the drive-thru,” she said. “The service levels were unacceptable for all of our guests during that time period. The officer was not targeted, but neither he nor our other guests received the level of service they should.”
Atkinson said the officer pulled up to the restaurant’s drive-thru window, in uniform and in a marked patrol car, and placed an order. He sat there for between seven to 10 minutes and never heard any acknowledgement.
Finally, he parked his car and walked inside where two women were standing at the counter. There were no other customers at the counter at the time, the officer told his chief. Both of the workers looked at the officer and then walked toward the back of the restaurant. “He said he could see them back there and they could see him,” Atkinson said.
After about five minutes, one of the employees walked up to the counter and yelled to the other worker that she had to go to the bathroom. She still didn’t acknowledge the officer. He waited several more minutes and finally left without any food.
The officer went and got a meal someplace else and later emailed Krystal but, as of this morning, had not gotten a reply. Atkinson said he called the company in Georgia this morning and spoke with a customer service manager who said they had received his complaint and apologized for what may have happened.
There have been multiple incidents nationwide over the past year where police officers have been denied service because of their chosen profession. According to a New York Times story late last year, A Dunkin’ Donuts employee, spotting a police officer in the back of the line in West Hartford, Conn. one weekend in October announced, “He didn’t get the message; we don’t serve cops here.”
In September 2015, the manager of an Arby’s in Pembroke Pines, Fla., told a uniformed police officer that the employee working at the drive-through window refused to serve him. Also in 2015, incidents at a Jimmy John’s in Minnesota, a Chuck E. Cheese in Bowling Green, Ky., a Whataburger in Lewisville, Tex., and a Starbucks in Philadelphia, followed a similar pattern. Police officers were denied service in some form — food, access to restrooms — by employees.
“After talking with him (the officer) this morning, he feels like he was denied service and that’s certainly what it sounds like,” Atkinson said. “In this day and age when police officers are being killed, this is a restaurant in our city. If they have to call for an emergency, we’re the ones responding.”
The chief said what happened to the officer won’t stop them from doing their job. “We’re professional and we’ll answer regardless of how we’re treated,” he said. “I want to know what happened and get an explanation, but as far as we’re concerned, we’ll move on and continue to do our job.”
A manager at the restaurant this morning told AL.com she was reviewing video surveillance tapes to see what happened. Krystal sent this statement to AL.com: “Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We already have begun looking into this and will take appropriate action immediately. Be assured what was described is NOT consistent with Krystal’s values and training. We respect and appreciate all the uniformed men and women who protect and serve our communities as well as for our country.”
The company issued a revised statement this afternoon:
“We take this allegation very seriously and have spoken with the entire Irondale Krystal team in addition to reviewing surveillance footage. Our policy is to serve all guests promptly and with a smile. In this case, we clearly did not meet the officer’s expectations and we want to correct it. We want to invite this individual as well as the entire Irondale Police department into our restaurant for a meal to demonstrate our appreciation for what they do.
We value their contributions and the relationship we have with them and with police departments in all of our communities. If this officer in any way felt slighted, we want him to know that we apologize and that was in no way, shape or form our intent.”

BREAKING!! TRUMP DID IT!! DC TOURIST SHOCKED After Shutdown!
Over the last 24 hours, the country has been plunged into chaos after the government shutdown. Well, that is what the Democrats would love for you to believe but lo and behold everything is working just fine and will continue to despite the hysteria the mainstream media has pushed. In fact, the majority of Americans will not notice a thing gone awry since only non-essential government workers were affected by this liberal grandstanding for illegal immigrants.
However, that was not the case back in 2013 when Barack Obama threw his temper tantrum by refusing to negotiate with Republicans on how to fund the government. Instead, Obama shut the government down but not before he realized that when he did no one would really notice his dramatic gesture and things would continue to work despite their absence. So, Obama decided with his flair for dramatic, ramped up the theatrics by closing down the national parks which included the World War II Memorial in Washington.
Even during the shutdown of 2013, the House Committee on Natural Resources noted that “the Obama Administration is going out of its way to take unreasonable and unnecessary steps to block public access to parks and monuments that aren’t warranted by a government shutdown.”
“In addition, none of these D.C. memorials were closed during the last government shutdown in 1995-1996 under the Clinton Administration. The Obama Administration’s closing of these sites is not something they are required to do; it’s something they are CHOOSING to do. The Obama Administration wants the effects of this government shutdown to be as painful as possible.”
However, that was then, and this is now, and here we are in the midst of another government shutdown, but something is very different. Instead of crying and making a public scene President Trump is allowing this absurd liberal hissy fit to run its course leaving the theatrics out of it which many government workers and tourists noticed today.
Just one day into the shutdown Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke went to work cleaning up trash on the National Mall and speaking to school children with a smile on Sunday morning. Nope, Zinke was not out of a job or turning people away from the memorials but doing what he does every day.
Here is more from The Daily Caller:
“We’re not putting up barricades,” Zinke told The Daily Caller in an interview. “Absolutely not. We’re passing out brochures until we run out of brochures. I’ll be out here every day.”
Zinke and much of the federal government has had the vast majority of staff furloughed due to the government shutdown.
The last government shutdown was in 2013 under the Obama administration. For that shutdown, the Department of Interior made the controversial decision to close public parks, monuments, and battlefields. The decision led to some comical and ultimately sad stories of children having their D.C. school trips canceled and veterans not being able to visit monuments built in their honor.
However, if you were looking for similar headlines under the Trump administration, keep looking.
In the first hours of the government shutdown Secretary Zinke was making plans for how to keep America’s public parks open. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Zinke met with public affairs and maintenance staff to run through a plan to keep memorials on the National Mall open. He then spoke with garbagemen who will be picking up trash on the Mall one last time before the city of D.C. takes over for them.
Zinke then got into his car and drove to the WWII memorial to greet visitors and hand out maps and helped with directions. “I spent the morning walking around, giving brochures out,” Zinke said. “I got a lot of thanks from both sides of the aisle. We will not weaponize our public lands.”
“The visitor experience will be diminished,” Zinke admitted, noting that some museums and public service will take a hit during the shutdown. “But to the degree possible, we will keep our public lands open. They should not be used as a political weapon.”
Zinke said public parks, monuments, and the battlefields “belong to the people and not the government,” and noted that people will see a “significant difference” between the Trump administration and Obama’s in the way public lands are managed during a shutdown.
Now, of course, this government shutdown is unnecessary, but since it happened, it is great to see the vast difference between Obama and Trump’s leadership. Obama chose to make the American people hurt every chance he got, while Trump is in the business of protecting the American people and our culture.
Hopefully, this ridiculous government shutdown will end, and we can get back to work on making America great again, but with the left who knows how long they will draw this out.

Michelle Busted in FOUL Act With ‘Special’ Friends On Private Vacay Away From Barack
THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG NOW!!
For the past eight years, Michelle Obama strutted around the United States like she owned the place and is now living the fruits of that “labor” while on a perpetual post-presidential vacation. She ditched her husband this week and jetted off to Mallorca, Spain with some “special” friends. Although she thought she had banned all photographers, she can’t control everyone as a couple onlookers caught the former first lady going full-ghetto with the foul thing she did.
Not only did Michelle leave her husband behind for this private vacation, she’s also without her youngest daughter, Sasha. She hasn’t been seen with her teen more than a handful of times since leaving the White House. Now, it looks like the 53-year-old mother is trying to act like her daughters while sowing her wild oats.
Michelle Obama has had several classless public displays since moving out of the White House, as she no longer has to hide her true self behind her First Lady facade. A few months ago, we witnessed the real Michelle show complete disregard for sacred holy sites when she showed up to a historic Italian Catholic church in a blouse literally held together by a few strings and falling off her. Most respectable people have the wherewithal to realize that there’s a staunch dress code in places like this, but Michelle didn’t seem to care.
Now her classlessness has just reached a nasty new low with what she was caught doing on her island vacation that she’s sharing with her LGBT friends – former United States Ambassador to Spain James Costos and his husband Michael Smith.
The fact that she was once the First Lady of the United States seems even more shocking now than when he was in the White House, after seeing how Michelle carries herself when she thinks nobody is looking.
Coming off the heels of her embarrassing and uncivilized antics in Italy, where she looked like she had just rolled out of the club and into the cathedral, Michelle decided to double down on that depraved appearance.
Forgetting that she’s 53-years-old, Michelle was seen sporting a skirt with a slit so high it showed all of her thigh and part of her backside. Regardless that this is not s sight most want to see of her, she made it worse with what she was wearing (and showing) the next day.
Acting like a teen or millennial, Michelle went out in public forgetting something she probably should have put on before leaving her hotel room.
Michelle emerged for dinner wearing a black strappy outfit with no bra. To most people, this would be inappropriate, but that decency was apparently lost on her. Worse yet, was how she looked when going on another island adventure during this trip, paying homage to her rapper friends with what she decided to wear.
Michelle went on a hike around the island, surrounded by her staff and security, and if you didn’t know it was a former first lady, you’d assume that it was a thuggish rapper based on her attire. Trying to hide her face with a black hood, Michelle stomped around the island in all black “street” clothes.
The Daily Mail praised her for her looks, referring to it as an A-list style:
“Michelle Obama looked ever the A-lister as she stepped out for a workout and a yacht trip in Mallorca, Spain,” the site reported.
“The former First Lady, 53, shielded herself from the sun with shades and a black hood to enjoy a hike around the island on Thursday.”
“She was surrounded by members of her staff tagging along for the sweat session, with members of her security team flanking her.”
“The day after her hike, Michelle boarded a yacht, wearing a white crop top and a stylish wrap skirt with a bird pattern, letting the fabric flow to show her toned legs.”
Since there’s nothing that can be done about paying for these two for the rest of their lives, they should just slip into obscurity, especially since Michelle insists on flaunting her thigh and braless chest anytime she travels. It’s as if she has something to prove and doesn’t realize that nobody wants to see it. Her appearance is an insult to the injury she left this country with, by having to see her backside hang out of her skirt – yet the left wants to talk about Melania Trump looking inappropriate.
While President Donald Trump is picking up the pieces that this anti-American couple left behind, it’s obnoxious to know that Michelle is enjoying on-going trips and flaunting it, while the people of this country are footing the bill.
Trump has done a masterful job of getting America back on track, which the Obamas can’t stand. While they’re vacationing and looking like the disrespectful duo they are, they also mock him and attempt to discredit him in the process
BREAKING!! Obama Just Made DISGUSTING Announcement About His Daughter! NEVER EXPECTED THAT!
NEVER SAW THAT COMING!!
The Obama family was spotted by paparazzi doing what they’re best at doing. This time it was only partially paid for by taxpayers. Half of the Obama family was on vacation in Miami, soaking up some sun, spending taxpayer money on security that had to travel. That’s when it got bizarre. Former President Obama became quite strange and creepy, even though he wasn’t spotted on the trip, but sure had something odd to say about it. Only Malia and Michelle were located in Miami, trying to soak up the taxpayer sun, and Barack still found his way to be mentioned in the article about the girl’s vacation. Nonetheless, Barack was pathetic, but that’s nothing new considering he went on an ‘apology tour’ during his Presidency.
The Daily Mail captured Malia and Michelle Obama in photographs as they pranced around Miami, hitting up elegant restaurants and flaunting their body in bathing suits while the taxpayer-funded security loathed behind begrudgingly. The article spoke about what the Obama girls were wearing, where they were going, and it was quite stalkerish. The job of a paparazzi to legally stalk people while they’re doing things is creepy. But then we bring it back to Barack Obama and his chat about his daughter, and that’s where it becomes strange.
Daily Mail reported:
“The former first lady also sported a long white blouse, a bandanna and large fold hoop earrings for the outing. Malia was looking similarly casual alongside her mother in a tan hoodie over her swimsuit, of which just her black bikini bottoms were visible. The tall teen toted in her hands a pair of white sneakers and her iPhone with a charger. She also was carrying a hefty-looking book – perhaps a bit of holiday break homework from Harvard University, where Malia is due to return later this month.
The ladies looked as though they didn’t have a care in the world, appearing as though the post-White House life suits them just fine.
The day at the beach appeared to be all about girl time as former president Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen. The former first lady also sported a long white blouse, a bandanna and large fold hoop earrings for the outing. Malia was looking similarly casual alongside her mother in a tan hoodie over her swimsuit, of which just her black bikini bottoms were visible.

The day at the beach appeared to be all about girl time as former president Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen.”
The Daily Mail spoke about the details of the girl’s vacation before it transitioned into what Barack Obama was up to and talking about. He was babbling on about his talk with Letterman, and that’s where it became ‘pathetic’ and readers must have become a bit creeped out. Obama’s chat with Letterman was a drooling confession to his pathetic self, something many readers have known about since watching the former President rule the greatest country in the world with no guts, glory, or manhood that fellow men would look up to.
Daily Mail continued:
“He discussed her move-in day with David Letterman on the talk show legend’s new Netflix project My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.
Obama told him that he speaks with his daughter regularly because he is ‘pathetic,’ adding President Barack Obama said he was a wreck when he dropped his daughter Malia off at Harvard University. The 44th commander-in-chief discussed move-in day when he appeared as the first guest on David Letterman’s new Netflix talk show ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman’.
Obama then described how he speaks with the 19-year-old regularly because he’s ‘pathetic’.
‘It was like open-heart surgery man,’ Obama told Letterman of moving his oldest daughter into her college dorm in August 2017.
‘And it was was interesting to see how everybody handled things differently. Michelle had a cleaning glove and was scouring the bathroom…Sasha tries to be cool because she didn’t want to admit that she was going to miss her sister so she was helping make the bed and fold clothes. I was basically useless.”
Useless? Pathetic? Why don’t they tell us something we don’t know? It’s peculiar to describe yourself as inadequate or pathetic. That’s not what people want to hear considering this was the 44th President of the United States. Former Presidents aren’t supposed to be pathetic. They’re supposed to be leaders and not weaklings bowing down to their daughters. How can she look up to him if he’s self-professed as pathetic?
That was a bizarre conversation with Letterman.
