Now this is just dumb.
Five police officers were kicked out of a Denny’s restaurant for carrying their guns.
It happened in downstate Belleville.
Needless to say, the national chain is kind of freaking out over one of their soon-to-be-former manager’s decision to encourage off-duty police officers to eat their crime-preventing breakfasts/dinners elsewhere. Because there’s a reason why Denny’s restaurants don’t get robbed more often, and it’s because criminals are generally smart enough to avoid the places where cops eat.
