    Bump Robo, DL, and Chief! I am not required to conceal my firearm when on duty as long as my badge and ID are displayed!

    The Manager for that area called and apologized profusely to the Chief and said that his men in uniform or in plain clothes are welcome back anytime they wish. The Chief has lifted the ban but it remains to be seen if the Officers go back in there.
    Beowolf, these were detectives who had their badges displayed on their belts and their firearm was under jackets. The person that 'witnessed' the firearm was basically the type of person who is terrified of firearms or just plain hates to notice anyone wearing a firearm.
    DonnaLynn, they had not ordered their food yet so they did not owe Denny's anything. Beowulf_7, I hope you see this and take note they were told to leave before they ordered and they did so quietly, they just informed their supervisor of the incident to CYA.

    I re-read the article... where does it say they received food that they didn't pay? It's not stated one way or the other, but I believe if they didn't pay that would have been in the article, anything to make the situation worse.

    I'm not saying it is right or wrong, but the department I worked for would have "schooled" the officers on the Official Orders and how they said that when in civilian clothes (on or off duty) you weapon "SHALL" be concealed so as not to cause a disturbance. In essence, we were allowed to carry concealed and that meant it had to be concealed.

    My only problem with the story is when the officers stood up and left without paying for their food. You ordered it. . . .you ate part of it. . . . .you pay for it. You politely inform management though that neither you, nor probably anyone else from the department be patronizing the business again until this flap was fixed.

    It's amazing who they let become managers...
    The impact on not only that location, the corporation as a whole..
    The CEO of Denny's need to officially & publicly appoligize for the insulting behavior of their "manager". Ensure this doesn't happen again. And respectfully request the Chief of Police changes his ban.
    Wow.. people.. (and these are our peers when we appear in court).

    Patrons at times can ask the weirdest accommodations you can imagine. Most do it during the anxiety of "the rush"

    The store Manager should have been savvy enough to improvise. I.E. I'm sorry (blah blah blah) and I'll have run that by corporate (ramble-ramble)
    If by chance the patron comes in again, more improvising, comp them one last meal and skip disturbing LEO's who are paying patrons.

    Thought most Managers would know the importance of LEO, especially the one's breaking up employee altercations and emptying the safe at 3am. Guess not

    It appears the officers kept a professional attitude by not arguing with the management when they were discriminated against. As far as the manager, why would he alienate a P.D. that the restaurant relies on for protection? In the future one would assume response time to that location would be extended and routine checks avoided, all this to appease one customer. Epic Fail Dennys

    Seems like the problem was corrected on the spot so I'm not sure why the Chief has got involved and banned the officers...
