Police Officer Punished for Buying Chick-fil-A

Dallas News | myFOXdfw.com

Officer’s Chick-fil-A comments investigated

By James Rose, Fox, DFW

DALLAS - A controversy surrounding Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day has come to light at Dallas police headquarters.

Dallas Police Association President Ron Pinkston said Sgt. Mark Johnson of the Southeast Patrol Division brought a Chick-fil-A sandwich to the briefing room last Wednesday.

It was the same day thousands of people across the country went to the restaurant chain as part of an effort to show support for the CEO's stand against gay marriage.

Two lesbian officers filed complaints against the sergeant. They said his comments and actions left them embarrassed and humiliated.

Sgt. Johnson, who has been with the department for 12 years, was transferred. The internal affairs department is investigating the complaints.

This is such bullcrap. When are we going to wise up.

I’d like to know more of the story. In addition to the Chick-Fil-A, it referred to “comments”. What were the comments? In any case, they are law officers, and gay marriage is illegal in Texas.

Some day soon millions of people all over this country are going to get sufficiently fed up with this garbage and then Katie3 bar the door!

I hope the people of Dallas put the heat on city hall in a big way to make the police dept back down!

Hopefully he didn't take a three hour lunch to get through the line. Maybe he was running traffic control there and got a free sandwich.

Notice how it’s perfectly okay to name the male officer in question (subjecting him to the very real possibility of off-duty reprisals)... but the two bull dykes, OTOH, have their identities conveniently cloaked.

Lesbians are part of the “constantly offended” class.

I would file a counter suit saying how they offend me with their sexual behavior as unbecoming an officer.

This world just gets sicker and sicker. The trash needs to be taken out. Seriously.

Some can make comments. Like a certain cop in my city who said if parishioners at a Haitian Church get tickets for parking in No Parking, Handicapped or blocking drive ways. he will ticket cars in the other church parking lots.

Yep. What were the comments? If he directed offensive comments at the officers he knew were gay, then that’s inappropriate.

If he was transferred to another precinct where there are no Bull Dykes he is probably happy.

I know if I were a Police Officer and got into a disturbmce I don’t want a 5’5” Bull Dyke coming to my rescue, I want a 6’4” male officer with a bad attitude.

Another Wrong Headline.

He was not punished for buying Chick-fil-A. He was punished for responding to the 2 butches who started in with him.

You know, you’d think it would take more than a chicken sandwich to make lesbian cops feel embarrassed and humiliated. Seems like that would sorta go along with the territory.

I’m too honest to let this one go by without saying something. This is very misleading—both the headline and the article. It was nothing that he brought the Chick-Fil-A sandwich to the office. It was what he said to the lesbian officers that got him into trouble—something to the effect of “See where I went for lunch today?” It was a deliberate slam or joke toward the officers. I think some kind of discipline was appropriate. He could have brought the sandwich in without making any comment and he wouldn’t have gotten in trouble (IMHO).

Maybe the “Butch” officers directed comments to him.
Maybe they did a Kiss-in at the station.

If maybes were nickels we’d never want again.

The article makes it seem like the male officer with the Chick Fil A made the comments.

In the case that he made negative remarks to co-workers, it’s about much more than the sandwich and the headline is misleading.

Sue me ... I’d rather have the details.

He was “punished” due to his words. Why does the title not really fit what happened? This will be an open and shut case unless he called them a carpet muncher or something.

Agree, if he was punished for nothin gmore than bringing in a stupid sandwich.

If he was mouthing off to the lezzies (not unsurprisingly, I know a few LEO's where I live that are meatheads) then he has to take his lumps like the rest of us wage slaves.

Oh no! These TRAINED, ARMED, LICENSED TO KILL OFFICERS were threatened by his choice of lunch! Give me a break.

I wouldn't put past them to have commented on his choice of lunch and he stood his ground.

Like the Muslims, these queers and lezzies are doing their level best to make us cheer and accept them, it makes me wonder how long God is going to let them get by with this behavior. The places of power some of these deviates hold is scary. Apparently “aids” was not a good enough deterrent, I don't know what God has in store for them next but I sure wish it would hurry and get here.

Interesting that it was 9/11 that eventually brought us this clown. A willful king set out to destroy anything traditional in America.

Sgt. Johnson, who has been with the department for 12 years, was transferred. The internal affairs department is investigating the complaints.

So lets see of we understand where we are at in this Country.
It is OK for 2 perverts to be Dallas Police Officers
It is not OK for a Dallas Police Officer to have a chicken sandwich for lunch.

"All sides agree that Johnson brought a Chick-Fil-A sandwich to work, and that there was some discussion about the restaurant chain. The content of that discussion is disputed.

"The two female officers told supervisors that Johnson set a Chick-fil-A bag in front of them and said something about having eaten at the restaurant that day."

People may get fed up but they won’t do shit about it. On Tuesday the state of Washington had an election and only 20% bothered to vote, and the ballots were all mailed home weeks before the election so there was no reason not to vote. The same assholes got back into office.

Get use to this because the left are in control and the right are too damn lazy to do a damn thing about it.

I hope that the officer can prove that the lesbians at the station were getting special treatment from the nutless administration and perhaps that the supervisor who punished him was Hetrophobic. This is clearly a case of discrimination on the part of Dallas PD.

He was not punished for buying Chick-fil-A. He was punished for responding to the 2 butches who started in with him.

They were offended by the CFA bags and felt it was extremely insensitive for him to flash CFA logo and products in their faces.

Leftist employers nationwide paying attention.
