Officers Buy Meal For Couple Who Wouldn’t Sit Next to Them
Four cops were eating at a diner in Pittsburgh last Friday. Which was the day after the Dallas shooting that killed five cops and injured nine more.
When a couple was being seated at the table next to them, the guy said he wanted to sit somewhere else. Apparently because he was angry about the officer-involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.
One of the cops was an African-American guy named Chuck Thomas, who told the guy he didn't have to worry. But the guy still decided to sit on the other side of the restaurant.
Before the officers left, they decided to pay his bill too, for $28.58 and they also left a $10 tip. On the receipt, they wrote, "Your check was paid for by the police officers that you didn't want to sit next to. Thank you for your support."
Chuck says a lot of other people thanked them for their service that day and it was the only negative experience they had. The whole point was to improve the relationship between the community and the cops.
