Restaurant Staff SINGS ANTI-POLICE RAP aimed at Dining Officers
America’s police officers used to garner respect from law-abiding citizens and fear from criminals. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case.
In several quarters of American society, disrespecting police is now disgustingly commonplace.
One example happened at a North Carolina BBQ joint last week. A few of Raleigh PD’s finest tried to eat a meal at Smithfield’s Chicken & Barbeque. Some employees, along with at least one manager, allegedly sang an anti-police rap song to them. The expletive-laden ditty was called “F— Tha Police,” written by N.W.A.
While proponents argue this song addresses racial profiling and police brutality, what it actually advocates is violence against police. The thugs who sang it are probably part of the Black Lives Matter culture.
Leftists exaggerate statistics about officer-involved shootings, promote riots and looting, generally hate white people, and advocate anarchy. But never mind all that, because police are the real problem.
I don’t understand why employees of the hospitality industry believe such behavior is in any way acceptable.
Police officers should be allowed to eat in peace. They’ve earned it, regardless of what the jackasses at the restaurant think.
If they will do this to the police to their faces, imagine what they may be doing to their food?! Let’s hope the police can see their food being served.
One thing is for sure, if any criminal activitiy should go down at Smithfield’s, I wouldn’t expect a fast response from Raleigh PD.
As for the “entertainment,” one would think that regardless of the song selection, they would have the tact to not sing a song that advocates the killing of police. Then again, that may be too much to expect from such clowns.
One of the officers who witnessed the “theater” vented about it on Facebook.
In response on Friday, Raleigh Police Protective Association president Matthew Cooper addressed a Facebook post to the restaurant:
“THANK YOU Smithfield’s Chicken & Barbeque Jones Sausage location for the class and professionalism as you sang “F- the police” as my brothers at Raleigh Police Department attempted to eat at your restaurant. The manager sang along as well. Do you really feel that was appropriate?”
The post went viral in a matter of hours, with more than 3,000 shares and counting. Calls for a boycott of the restaurant spread rapidly as well.
This prompted the restaurant owner, David Harris, to publically apologize:
“We have had a long standing relationship with Raleigh Police Department. We respect law enforcement. We have called upon them in the past for assistance. We take utmost seriousness of this issue. We have spoken with numerous officers tonight. We will do thorough investigation and terminate anyone employed that doesn’t share our RESPECT of ALL law enforcement. We will continue to support RPD! We are forever grateful for all the men and women of law enforcement’s courage, dedication and sacrifice.”
Let’s act with more than words.
How about the restaurant FIRE the employees! Let those cop-killers see what it’s like on the unemployment line.
Raleigh PD stated on Saturday that it is currently working with Smithfield’s owner to “resolve the issue.” The police union, likewise moved quickly to ease tensions for their part.
In their reply to Harris’ post, the union thanked him for both the apology and his “quick and heartfelt response to this matter. We truly believe that the actions of these employees do not share your values.”
Thank God the owner respects law enforcement. Hopefully, this incident will provoke him to pay better attention to hiring practices in the future.
If BLM-type thugs want jobs where they can sing that crap, they should ask the professional anarchist groups, paid by the likes of George Soros to perpetuate violence and hatred. Seems like they’d fit right in with that crowd.
