Dallas Cop Reassigned After Argument With Lesbian Officers Over Eating A Chick-Fil-A Sandwich
Dallas, TX - Police Sergeant Mark Johnson walked into work carrying a sandwich from Chick-fil-A to eat during his lunch break and became embroiled in an argument with two lesbian police officers. It is unknown whether the Dallas cop packing a sandwich on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day or his lesbian peers initiated the heated verbal exchange over lunchtime dinning preferences.
A Dallas Police Department representative told local CBS 11 News the decision to reassign the sergeant was not based upon bring a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich to work but whether or not the veteran officer used offensive comments during the argument with the two female officers. The decision to send the Dallas police sergeant to the graveyard shift was made before an investigation of the altercation over the Chick-fil-A sandwich was conducted, The Blaze notes.
The Dallas Police Association (DPA) represents all three officers involved in the chicken sandwich fight and is reportedly frustrated that a decision was made by the administration before an investigation into the matter was completed. The DPA views a reassignment to a midnight shift at the Lew Street Justice Center as punishment.
At the start of the shift, a sergeant is responsible for reading bulletins to all the officers. The DPA notes a memo about possible crowd control issues at the local Chick-fil-A due to the appreciation day and protests was included in the notices the day of the verbal altercation. The police officer’s union is pushing for mediation between the sergeant who brought a Chick-fil-A sandwich to work and the two gay police officers who reportedly took offense to the meal, but, so far, the Dallas Police Department administration has not agreed to take a fresh look at the matter. The police sergeant remains at a new post on the midnight shift.
