The owner of a Smithfield’s Chicken ’n Bar-B-Q restaurant in Garner (NC) has apologized for the way his employees treated Raleigh Police Department officers.
The apology came after a post on Facebook was spread far and wide by officers who said the store’s employees including the manager sang NWA’s song “F— The Police” as they ate.
The post, written on the Raleigh Police Protective Association’s page, thanked the restaurant for its “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?”
Shortly afterwards, David Harris, the store’s owner, posted an apology. He promised to investigate and “terminate anyone employed that doesn’t share our RESPECT of ALL law enforcement.”
