Donuts and drama queens


We all know that if there’s one thing the constabulary loves more than shooting our dogs or stomping an expectant mother until her baby dies, it’s donuts. Cops and creme sticks go together as inevitably as police and payola. In fact, “staffers at several Dunkin’ Donuts stores” call the boys in blue “regular customers.”
And yet the union for New York City’s worst finest… has forbidden its minions from patronizing Dunkin’. Why? Not out of concern for the little girls these obese thugs might crush while body-slamming them but because “a worker at a Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins” in Brooklyn, New York, “refused to scoop ice cream for two 73rd Precinct detectives — allegedly because they were cops.”
The NYPD claims that the “two cops, who are plainclothes patrol officers …, entered the store … to purchase some Baskin-Robbins. After waiting in line behind a customer, the cops — who were wearing suit pants, shirts and ties, with their badges and pistols on their belts — approached the counter but were ignored by a clerk who instead asked a man standing behind them what he wanted … The man gave the clerk his order, … then added, ‘These two guys were in front of me.’
“‘Yeah, I know, but I don’t serve cops,’ the clerk replied.”
Bully for him! And for stouthearted Jim Chambers, “an Atlanta gym owner” who’s “banned police officers and military members from working out at his facility…” If more Americans shunned the anti-Constitutional standing army that stalks among us, we might one day live free of such atrocities as execution by choking for selling cigarettes and sodomy via broomstick. Not to mention the lesser crimes of pointless but incredibly lucrative highway robbery and kidnappings that now snag one out of every 25 Americans.
But before we applaud our hero too enthusiastically, realize that Dunkin’ Donuts’ version of what happened differs dramatically from the cops’. No surprise there: Cops lie about everything, all the time.
According to DD’s “manager at the store,” “These two men in shirts and ties — who I later found out were police — 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. You can see on the security tape: They stand here for five minutes, while other customers were being served…”
Like me, you’ve probably found yourself in the same situation once or twice: You chide yourself for being so dumb and find the correct line. Not cops. These vaunted personages live on a plane apart where no slight, even one their own idiocy causes, goes unpunished. And so their union has elevated this silly mishap into a cause celebre: “The incident prompted the detectives [sic] union to call for an NYPD boycott of the coffee chain — and an apology from the donut shop’s corporate parent.”
Astounding, isn’t it? These butchers kill innocent folks every day, yet they never apologize for such brutal errors. Rather, they justify and lie and excuse and deny. But admit they were wrong? Not on your life, because then we victims might demand to live free — or even merely to live — by disbanding these hired killers.
Meanwhile, our taxes pay the police however agonizing their abuse of us. They continue drawing a salary and benefits, buying new equipment and cruising around in vehicles we furnish regardless of our dissatisfaction with their “services.”
But DD’s profits depend on pleasing customers — even imbecilic, cavilling ones like cops. So “[t]he franchisee who owns and operates this restaurant” stepped up to the plate: He “immediately upon learning of this situation … contacted one of the police officers involved to personally apologize for any negative experience he may have had in his store…”
Naturally, that wasn’t good enough for the union. It called DD’s explanation about the “store’s confusing layout” that “led the cops to order at a closed register” “an insult.” “Sergeants’ Benevolent Association boss Ed Mullins” huffed, “Basically, Dunkin’ Donuts is saying that the two officers in the store were too stupid to know where to order…” And that’s incorrect how? “It’s an insult to all members of law enforcement.” Oh, please. No wonder a “traffic stop” with these drama queens often yields a dead serf.
And now the NYPD is actively sabotaging Dunkin’ Donuts. “When asked for directions to the nearest store by a member of the public,one police officer said: ‘I’m not allowed to do that.’”
Really? So is New York City remitting the whopping amount of taxes it steals from DD? Or is the company still paying for the cops that are destroying its business?
Unfortunately for the denizens of New York who suffer the NYPD’s depredations, morons across the country are piling onto DD: “…a woman from Tennessee was so angered by the story that she joined in the boycott and donated to an NYPD charity, urging Dunkin’ Donuts to do the same. ‘I donated to @nycpolicefdtn in honor of @NYPD73Pct I challenge @DunkinDonuts to make substantial donation #BackTheBlue,’ she wrote on Twitter.”
On behalf of all the New Yorkers who creep about the city in fear of its swaggering legionnaires, whom the NYPD stops and frisks, who fork over fine after fine to these thieves, let me say that supporting their plunder of us is unconscionable. Shame on you. The “nycpolicefdtn” labors overtime to deprive me and my neighbors of our right to keep and bear lest we protect ourselves from the uniformed bullies bossing us. Another of its “programs” “monitors” us via computer, while a third promotes globalism. Lady, you want to reward cops in Memphis for tyrannizing you and your family, that’s your business. But leave my backyard alone.
In response I invite all who love liberty, who despise Amerika’s police-state, who’ve tired of cops’ self-pity and posturing as Superman when they really only function as pickpockets for Leviathan, to join me in buying a dozen donuts or a few quarts of Baskin-Robbins.
How sweet the fight for freedom!
