If you’re looking for something to be outraged about today, you’ve just found it. You’re welcome.
The Pembroke Police Department in Pembroke Pines, Florida released a statement this morning that one of its officers had been denied service at a local Arby’s… because she was a cop. Refused. Service. Because. She. Is. A. Cop! You know, one of those women in blue who protects and serves the community. Well, that’s how cops used to be seen, anyway.
The Pembroke Pines Police Department was made aware of an incident that occurred on the evening of 09/01/2015 where one of our uniformed officers was denied service at a local Arby’s (11755 Pines Blvd) due to being a police officer.
“I am offended and appalled that an individual within our community would treat a police officer in such a manner. It is unacceptable, and I will be contacting the Arby’s CEO to demand an apology,” stated PPPD Chief Dan Giustino.
