JUST AWFUL: An officer ordered a cup of coffee only to find an awful message written on the receipt stuck onto the cup. The company offered him free lunch to make up for it. "No thank you. A Big Mac and large fries doesn’t make up for it." https://t.co/I9NLE6RKbc

Outrage isn't enough, firing the burger flipping goof isn't enough, offering the cop a Happy Meal isn't enough. People can SHOW SUPPORT FOR POLICE by finding someplace else to eat. You have plenty of choices. SHOW me outrage, don't tell me about it.https://t.co/hGl1iAN3wF
