Appears that cops are now getting the cold shoulder from fast food joints, and in one Taco Bell case, an already served patron actually told the cashier that if they served the officers that she would demand a refund and leave. Like the word "alleged" in the NYDN headline below . . ".......would you like lies with that?" NEWS Alabama sheriff’s deputies refused service at Taco Bell by alleged anti-police cashier Two sheriff's deputies were turned away by a Taco Bell cashier after the employee told them the eatery didn't serve cops. ALFRED NG NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Sunday, July 17, 2016, 3:09 PM To protect and not be served. Two sheriff’s deputies were allegedly refused service at a Taco Bell in Alabama, just for being officers. The two Lee County sheriff’s deputies were at a Taco Bell in Phenix City on Saturday when a cashier told the pair and an officer’s wife the eatery didn’t serve cops. The officers first took it as a joke, but the tone took a serious shift after they asked the cashier if she was kidding. “No, I’m not serving you,” the cashier allegedly responded, according to Sheriff Jay Jones, WTVM reported. “This really disturbs me that people have started treating law enforcement professionals in this manner when these same law enforcement professionals put their lives on the line every day to protect all people, including this woman with a very bad attitude at Taco Bell,” Tammy Bush Mayo, a deputy’s wife who was at the fast food chain, wrote on Facebook. She also recalled a customer who was happy the cashier refused to serve the officers, claiming the Taco Bell patron would have asked for a refund because she “didn’t want to eat somewhere with a cop.” Tammy Bush Mayo, a deputy's wife, spoke out against the Taco Bell employee on her Facebook on Saturday. (FACEBOOK) Sheriff Jones spoke out against the Taco Bell takedown and the cashier’s anti-police actions. “I’m very disappointed that simply because they were uniformed law enforcement officers that our deputies were treated in such negative fashion,” Jones said in a statement. “We pride ourselves in giving people basic respect and only ask the same in return.” While he was upset with the situation, Jones believed the incident was from a disgruntled employee, and didn’t reflect Taco Bell’s political views. The company is investigating the incident and plans to reach out to Mayo and her husband, a Taco Bell spokeswoman told the Daily News. “We are deeply appreciative of the men and women who have taken the oath to serve and protect our communities,” the company said in a statement.
