Police Department: KFC Customers Shocked by Sign on Front Door – “They deserve everything they get.”
In Gallipolis Ohio, a sign on the front door of a Kentucky Fried Chicken is sparking some attention.
The photo was initially posted on the Facebook page called Ohio Going Blue, after someone in the Gallipolis Police Department shared the good news.
With all the negative attention, the Police Dept. has seen the past few years you can imagine that some people viewed the “sign” in a negative light.
You never hear the positive stories. If it’s not wrapped up in propaganda, it’s not going to be seen. That’s sad to say, but it’s right.
Please Don’t Misunderstand This Post. No one is making light of the mistreatment of citizens. Those responsible should be held accountable for their actions.
With media only covering the bad, it’s good to see Police Officers recognized for the good they do as well.
“All uniformed police officers eat free everyday all day.”

“This is a positive post, but some of you can’t see the bigger picture. As an officer, I do not go into any establishment expecting/wanting ANYTHING to be free or let alone even a discount, whether I’m in uniform or not, and I can tell you other officers feel the same way. We don’t like ‘special treatment.’ The fact is that KFC is acknowledging law enforcement, which is why this was posted,” the administrator of Ohio Going Blue’s page wrote in a comment. “To those who stated that other first responders should also be acknowledged. My answer? ABSOLUTELY.”
In an opposite incident, a Virginia police officer was denied service at a restaurant after one of the cooks refused to make food for the officer while she was in uniform.
“You better pull me off the line, because I’m not serving that,” the cook allegedly said, Fox News reported.
“Well your first response as a police officer is anger,” Police Chief Earl Cook said in response. “These are very difficult times right now with our relations with everyone, and to have one of my officers treated in that manner unnecessarily — your first response is anger, then you calm down a bit.”
With 4,000 shares and 9,000 likes on Facebook it looks like a lot of people agree with KFC.
I could really go for some extra crispy right about now… just saying.
