Officers Horrified By What Dunkin' Donuts Employees Did To Them

Despite the old stereotype, there appears to be a bit of tension between police officers and donuts of late.

The New York City Detectives’ Endowment Association has urged the public to boycott popular donut franchise Dunkin’ Donuts, after two NYPD cops were refused service from a cashier in a Brooklyn store. The President of the Endowment Association, Michael Palladino, has called out the franchise and in particular, the cashier, for such blatant discrimination, labelling it “disgraceful.”

Mr. Palladino, although assuming that this is an “isolated incident,” has demanded that Dunkin’ Donuts corporate management issue a formal apology to the NYPD for the unsatisfactory customer service received by un-uniformed officers. Mr. Palladino went on to take a swipe at Mayor Bill de Blasio, amongst other city officials, stating that “political leaders in the city have encouraged this type of behavior by constantly demonizing cops and pushing their discriminations agenda.” Mr. Palladino called for politicians “to step up, take some responsibility and condemn what occurred.”

According to law enforcement sources, two NYPD officers – working as plainclothes officers, were in the Dunkin’ Donuts store looking to buy some Baskin-Robbins. The two men waited patiently in line for their turn, however, when their turn came, the cashier blatantly ignored them. The two cops - wearing suit pants, shirts and ties with their badges and pistols on display - were waiting when the cashier looked to the man behind them and asked for his order. After the gentleman stated that the cops “were in front of [him],” the cashier replied, “Yeah I know, but I don’t serve cops.”

The manager of the Dunkin’ Donuts has disputed the policeman’s claim, reporting that they did not know they were police until after the incident and that the two officers “must have never come to this Dunkin’ Donuts before, because instead of waiting in the line where you order, they waited at the counter where you pick up your order.” The unnamed manager went on to confirm the existence of a security tape that contradicts the officers’ story, adding, “You can see on the security tape: they stand here for five minutes, while other customers were being served. One customer even ordered ice cream, and they must’ve not liked that because they left the store.”

After the incident, the manager of the store confirmed that they began “getting phone calls from people saying they were police, asking ‘why didn’t you serve these officers?'” Despite continually explaining “that we serve everyone, we have nothing but respect for the police, and that they were standing at the wrong counter. It was busy at the time, and we were busy serving customers,” it appears that the boycott is still being encouraged, with a number of individuals taking to Twitter to express their own opinion on the matter.

One Twitter user known only as Fred, rallied support for the NYPD officers, commenting that “Dunkin’ Donuts must apologize. Until then I buy my coffee at 7:11. Boycott Dunkin’ Donuts.” It remains to be seen if Mayor de Blasio, a man who is widely disparaged by the police community, will comment on the incident.
