Restaurant Plays Offensive Song About Cops - Receives Instant Karma

A BBQ restaurant close to Houston has been hammered on social media after a deputy constable posted on Facebook that he and other law enforcement officials were disrespected at the establishment.

Deputy Shane Cates, however, also notes people shouldn't be upset with the restaurant's owners.

Cates original post on Facebook claimed that employees at Going's Barbeque & Steak Co. in Crosby, Texas were intentionally playing NWA’s "F*ck tha Police" when he and other officers sat down to eat.

In the post, which he took down later, Cates commented that customers started to look at the officers when they were eating their meal. At that point, he noticed the insulting rap song being played "over and over" from the back of the restaurant.

"I was completely shocked and thought surely no one was doing that as a dig on cops," Cates noted in his post.

Cates said he came up to the counter area, and saw a dishwasher singing the song and then pointing to the dining area. He wrote that the dishwasher "turned and noticed me standing there and started laughing."

The deputy took down his first Facebook post late Tuesday, and wrote in a new post that "it was not my intention for the owners of this restaurant to be hurt or punished in anyway."

He said he spoke to the owners and manager of the restaurant.

"I walked away from this meeting not only proud to know that these people do support law enforcement but also confident they will never allow something like this to happen again," he commented.

Rigoberto Ruiz, one of the owners of Going's, said the dishwasher who was insulting the cops has been fired.

Ruiz noted co-workers described the dishwasher as "jokeful" and that he thought playing the song would be funny.

"Clearly, it wasn't," Ruiz pointed out.

Apparently, the restaurant's manager and Cates have known each other for quite a while. When Cates approached the manager, Ruiz said, the conversation was lighthearted, and the manager didn't understand Cates was genuinely upset.

Ruiz went on to comment that the restaurant would soon have a "police eat free" day.
