[Quote]PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (AP) - The Arby's restaurant chain is apologizing after an employee at a South Florida location refused to serve a police officer. Pembroke Pines Police Chief Dan Giustino says the Atlanta-based company's chief executive officer and senior vice president of operations contacted him Wednesday afternoon, just hours after Giustino publicly announced the slight against one of his officers. Arby's also put out a news release saying the company respects and supports police and that disciplinary action would be taken. An incident report says a police sergeant attempted to order at the Arby's drive-thru, about 20 miles north of Miami, Tuesday evening. A manager explained the drive-thru worker didn't want to serve her because she was a police officer. The manager ordered the employee to serve the sergeant, but after that, she said she no longer felt comfortable eating the food.

They're pretty good imo, but this is just pathetic
It's a shame a fair bit of the US public seems to be losing faith in the police force. I hope the situation improves!
Hey, its okay to believe what you want, but when you're working a job, leave it at the card puncher. That said, I had arby's not too long ago. I love their sandwiches.

How do you take a stand against [I]police officers[/I]? Like, if you disagree with how some are behaving that's one thing, but opposing the very concept of a police officer is like, sovereign citizen tier shit.
Police officers here are usually given free food at restaurants as it encourages them to come back, and people are less likely to break and steal your shit when you have half the sheriff department taking a lunch break there. [editline]3rd September 2015[/editline] It's also a kind gesture from a decent person. "Hey, thank you for keeping us safe, that burger is on the house."
When I worked in a restaurant I would pay out of pocket for about 30 cops or military personnel that decided to eat there on a Sunday. How can people mistreat other people like this, especially if they don't even know them?

Holy shit it's great you're being noble and all but there is a limit. That's ridiculous dude. I could understand once in awhile picking up the bill for a nice cop or a serviceman passing through but for thirty people you said? And it sounds like you've done it more than once. Damn dude.

Hypocritical to not serve those who are always serving you, don't you think? #bluelivesmatter #thinblueline [editline]4th September 2015[/editline] #octotherp

I saw a video interview with the guy who refused service. When the reporters asked him for his side of the story he said why bother, I'm 19, she is a cop and I'm colored. Like seriously, your trying to pull the race card for some dumbshit you pulled and got called out on.

I was at an Arby's today and saw a cop get food and he got to eat free because of a "police appreciation day".
[QUOTE=PelPix123;48617388]Arby's is a good company with good executives and relatively good food. People generally make fun of them on TV order to advertise them. It's all a massive PR thing. Internally, it's called the "Arby's Roast" (Fucking amazing, right?) I have a friend that works in middle management there.[/QUOTE] Tell them to update their buildings. It's not bad but the one near me hasn't been remodeled in my lifetime and no one goes there because it looks run down.
