Two fast food employees have been fired after one of them refused to serve a police officer who wanted to order food from the establishment. The incident occurred at the Cook Out restaurant in Roxboro, North Carolina when Kenneth Horton, an army vet and veteran police officer, visited the chain restaurant and was denied service by the cashier. "We're saddened that an employee denied service to a police officer. We promote unity. The public here knows that. And, unfortunately, this incident has created a divide but it is only because of a small action that could have been avoided," said Roxboro Police Chief David Hess when he sat down in an interview with ABCs Raleigh-Durham station WTVD. Word of Hortons encounter at the Cook Out allegedly spread through Roxboro and on social media before it got back to senior level Cook Out employees who then took the unilateral decision to terminate the employment of both the cashier and the restaurant manager. "We did not contact corporate directly asking them to fire this employee. Cook Out took it upon themselves to take action," said Chief Hess. The manager, a mother of 4 who had worked at Cook Out for 10 years but wished to not be identified, said that she wishes the employee would have asked her to come to the front to take the officers order instead of asking another cashier to do it. "If a cashier doesn't feel comfortable taking somebody elses order, it's not wrong for them to ask somebody else do it or contact the manager," the former manager told WTVD. It is still unclear as to why the cashier did not want to serve Horton in the first place. But, the day after the incident occurred, she was fired by the district manager along with...

Let me guess, the cashier and manager were Obama’s people. Idiots.
The “tolerant” left strikes again. Oh, and let’s hear again how Trump and Republicans are dividing America. Or, let’s hear the Left’s sermonize again how everyone else is engaged in divisive behavior.
GOOD THING, imo.
Perhaps the female manager should NOT have been FIRED but only IF she did NOT know, at that time/date, what the cashier did.
the employee was not “comfortable” with taking an order?
Her manager expected that someone else who was “comfortable” would take the order instead?
I wonder how that would work.
Like the whites in the 50s in the deep south who were “uncomfortable” when serving blackes?
The manager was probably fired for sitting in the back instead of managing...
Somebody’s driving record soon to be damaged.
let me dish out their consequences..
2 generations have not had to face the results of their foolishness, so they repeat dumb and don’t learn a thing.
The fired store manager’s comment is telling - she said “she would not have felt SAFE going outside and talking with the POLICE OFFICER” - at the place she works everyday, not safe outside? Right there is the rot at that store, rots from the head and infected the entire store.
That police officer should get their names and when they call for police help they should deny them service!! NOW, what freakin country are we living in? My God, slowly but surely we are losing this nation to INSANITY!!!
Yep. Obama s fellow tribe members.
Who dat be?
North Carolina is rotting all over. Not sure what poisoned them but they are deeply corrupt and it is all over the state.
Maybe they were afraid of being identified by wanted posters the officer had seen.
This Cook Out appears to be right in the center of Oxford’s business district. This chain needs to sack everyone and hire a complete new staff. This is a small city, there will be real negative business repercussions.
If Obama had a restaurant employee and manager in his family............. Sorry manager lady, you should have thought about Christmas and bills when you hired a stick of dynamite to work the front counter.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
All fast food employees should watch Fast Times at Ridgemont High for an educational training video on customer service.
