Belleville cops booted from Denny's for toting guns
Quote:BELLEVILLEPolice here have less than a sunny-side-up view of a local Denny’s.

The Belleville police chief banned his officers from the eatery while on duty after several detectives were told they couldn’t carry their guns in the restaurant, but Denny’s says the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding.

The incident began about 10 a.m. Tuesday when five Belleville detectives went into the Denny’s at 1130 South Illinois Street, ordered food and began to eat. The detectives had badges on their belts or on chains around their necks, but they weren’t in uniform.

Belleville Capt. Donald Sax said restaurant manager David Rice then approached and told one of the detectives that a diner had complained about seeing one of the detectives carrying a gun.

Even though the detective told Rice all at the table were police officers, Rice insisted the detectives take their guns back out to their cars, Sax said.

According to Sax, Rice then told the officers that it is company policy to allow only uniformed officers to carry their guns into a restaurant and that a sign on the door stated that policy.

The officers all got up to leave, refusing to pay for their meal. As they were leaving, Sax said a Denny’s general manager, Michael Van, approached the group. He told them Rice was wrong and it was fine for them to stay and to keep their guns.

The detectives, whom Sax described as “embarrassed” by the incident, decided to leave anyway. Sax said the detectives made a point to check the door on their way out.

“There was no sign on the door (regarding firearms),” Sax said. “They all looked for it.”

Belleville Police Chief William Clay later issued an order to his troops, banning them from eating at that Denny’s when they are on duty or when they’re off duty and still in uniform. Off-duty and out of uniform, officers can eat where they want.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
I'm glad the cops were embarrassed for doing nothing wrong.

Let them feel like the 'little people' they go after for doing the same.

So he was so upset that the diner diner barely finished his dinner and deserted any plans for dessert? Or did the cops just cop out on an un-checked check?
My guns have killed less people than Obama's ATF has.
So they refused to pay for services provided?

Sanity, yours if you can keep it. Confused

A Denny's in Illinois refused to serve five police officers because one was open carrying.

This is the police we are talking about here.

We were just at Denny's last night.

That may be the last.

God bless!!

That didn't last very long:

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) -- The manager of a Denny's who asked a group of detectives to leave the restaurant is offering free food to police officers.
"Oh, SO sorry, that rule is ONLY for our PAYING non-LEO customers!!!

Please, YOUR gun is welcome - theirs? Not so much.
