Can you imagine being refused service when you risk your life for this country every day?
Sure, I understand business owners retain the right to choose who to offer their services or business to.
But is it really okay to deny hardworking cops these services and still hurl insults at them.
This is Biden’s America and thanks to the Democratic operatives at the MSM for getting us to this particular point.
Two members of the Seattle Police Department were denied service at a local café.
Here is more on the story:

The Post Millennial had more on this story:
A Seattle police officer and a trainee walked into Chocolati on N. 45th Street in the Wallingford neighborhood on Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 PM looking for a snack. According to their website, “Chocolati was established in the year 2003 with the philosophy of making delightful chocolate confections that were both aesthetically creative and of the highest quality.”
According to sources in SPD with knowledge of the events, the employee behind the register finished serving the customer in front of the officer. The officer then walked up to the register to order. The employee, a white female with green streaks in her hair, ignored the officer.
When the officer got her attention, he asked for a box of chocolates and the employee said, “No, I won’t serve you.”
The officer and the trainee left Chocolati, whose website claims that their “goal is to grow at a steady pace without compromising the quality and the personal attention we give to our customers and to our chocolates.”
"No, I won’t serve you."

The Daily Wire also reported:
According to Jason Rantz of KTTH, at least 118 Seattle police officers have left the police department in 2020, with 39 of them leaving in September. Rantz pointed out, “The typical number for that month is between 5 and 7,” adding, “The mass exodus of officers started in May with 10 separations, followed by 16 in June, 10 in July and 14 in August. … The majority of the resignations and retirements were patrol officers.”
Seattle Police Officer Guild President Mike Solan told Rantz, “Your 911 call for help will go unanswered for a significant amount of time.” He added “This is fixable if our elected leaders start supporting police, instead of pandering to a large activist crowd that’s dividing us when we need unity. False narratives about good people doing policing, pushed by the defund movement, is making our public safety efforts devolve further.”
Also in October, The Daily Wire noted, “Riots broke out again in the Democratic-controlled city of Seattle on Saturday night, leading to more than a dozen people being arrested for a litany of alleged crimes. Photos taken by the Seattle Police Department showed graffiti spray painted on various buildings calling for police officers to be murdered.”
The Blaze also added:
So, the outlet reported that the employee was told that an attempt would be made at another time to reach the owner or manager. But after the employee agreed that would be preferable, the Post Millennial reported that employee added the following sign-off: “And go f*** yourself.”
The outlet added that after it published its story, another police officer contacted the Post Millennial saying that another refusal of service occurred on a different date at the Chocolati on East Green Lake Drive North.
Seattle police have been having a difficult time of late. Last summer, the force dealt with a lawless “autonomous zone” downtown and moves by the city council to defund the department.
The Post Millennial, citing police sources, said a record 193 officers left the force last year through transfers, retirements, and resignations.
