I love it when the rights go both ways!! Sure, she can refuse to serve them. There's no law against refusing to service the police. There's also no law against firing a fast food worker who refuses to serve people and giving the company a bad name. And now she perhaps may qualify to get on the unemployment line. Hopefully she doesn't qualify.

AND she is a liar to boot. Claiming racism and her boyfriend was beat up. Tapes reviewed, no altercation, just more lies.

Fast Food Worker Fired for Refusing to Serve Police Officers

A Whataburger worker in Denison, TX, has been fired for refusing to serve two police officers. The employee cursed the officers, claiming "cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists."

Denison Police Chief Jay Burch published a lengthy post on the department's Facebook page.

Fox News:

In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department's Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.”

“If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.”

He added, "Now going somewhere else in Denison in the middle of the night is not easy because our officers don’t have many options. What really gets my goat with such an incident is that while most of us are sleeping – sleeping!, the officers are out there working hard to keep us safe and when trying to take a break to eat – they face this type of reception from an employee of a local business and management calls it 'politics'?"

Burch never named the restaurant, but local media outlets identified the restaurant as Whataburger, a popular Texas-based chain.

In a statement, a Whataburger spokesperson said "an individual employee acted out of line with Whataburger's values to treat all customers with respect. We took swift action and this person is no longer employed by us."

Denison Sgt. Holly Jenkins said on Facebook that the employee was unapologetic, expressed her hatred toward police and said she would continue to refuse service to police officers.

Jenkins said the two officers were served by another employee.

The employee doesn't have a case for wrongful termination. She said she'd do it again, which pretty much makes her unemployable at any business that interacts with the public.

The chief said a supervisor went to the restaurant afterward and spoke to the employee.

The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists,” Burch said. He added that the woman told the supervisor her boyfriend was “beat up” when Denison officers arrested him a few weeks ago.

Burch said the supervisor went to the station and found the documentation of the arrest and then reviewed the video of the arrest from the arresting officer’s dash cam.

“It was a ‘routine’ arrest,” Burch said. “There was no physical altercation and no one injured. So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting ‘beat up’ by police."
