Restaurant Owner Apologizes After Employees Sang “F The Police” To Cops

A North Carolina fast food restaurant has apologized to police in Raleigh after an officer claimed employees sang ‘F*** the police’ while he was eating with his colleagues.

The local police union posted a notice on its Facebook page on Friday ‘thanking’ the Smithfields Chicken & Barbeque Jones Sausage in Garner.

The sarcastic message went on to recognize their ‘class and professionalism as you sang “F*** the police” as my brothers at Raleigh Police Department attempted to eat at your restaurant.’

‘The manager sang along as well. Do you really feel that was appropriate?’ the scathing post continued.

The post went viral. Since it first went up on Friday, it has been liked over 200 times and shared over 2,600 times.

‘F*** the police’ is a protest song written and performed by the popular 1980s rap group N.W.A.

It takes on themes of police brutality and racial profiling, though critics say it incites violence against police officers.

The Facebook post prompted David Harris, the owner of the Garner location, to apologize.

Harris promised ‘a thorough investigation’ while also vowing to ‘terminate anyone employed that doesn’t share our RESPECT of ALL law enforcement.’

The union replied to Harris’ post, thanking him for his apology and his ‘quick and heartfelt response to this matter. We truly believe that the actions of these employees do not share your values.’

‘This is something that, unfortunately, officers have to deal with now on a regular basis,’ Raleigh police union head Matthew Cooper told the News Observer.
