When will these liberal establishments learn? Treating people unfairly is just wrong, for so many reasons.
Another corporation has carried liberalized idealization way too far. A Tacoma Cheesecake Factory kicked uniformed officers out of its restaurant because they were carrying their firearms.
BlueLivesMatter posted this news:
Tacoma Washington officers were asked to leave The Cheesecake Factory at the Tacoma Mall location yesterday, 12-20-2016. According to a post by one the officers to the Corporate social media page, she and five fellow coworkers were asked to leave the location because three of the officers were in uniform. The General Manager, Will, told the officers that no firearms were allowed on the property, whether you are law enforcement or not.
Miriam Nichols, one officer 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. 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.
Here’s what happened when one member of the officer’s party posted the incident to social media:
I am local law enforcement and 5 coworkers and I were told to leave by the general manager, Will, of your Tacoma Mall…
The News Tribune reported the ensuing reactions.
In typical social media fashion, outrage ensued.
Her post was shared more than 550 times, with dozens of people claiming they would boycott the restaurant, which opened Dec. 6 at the Tacoma Mall.
Several expressed outrage at the slight so soon after a Tacoma police officer was fatally shot while responding to a domestic dispute on the city’s East Side.
By Wednesday morning, the Cheesecake Factory’s corporate office reached out to the state Department of Corrections and the six involved officers to apologize and assure them that law enforcement is indeed welcome in the chain’s restaurants.
Apparently a shift manager misunderstood or miscommunicated the policy about law enforcement having service weapons on the premises.
I haven't been able to see either of the updates I've posted so I will try again. Cheesecake Factory has contacted our…
And the Cheesecake factory issued this apology, if you can call it that.
The Cheesecake Factory Miriam, 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.
