Back in the day I worked for a business and every year they had this big rowdy parade\festival thing in town.

They worked out a deal with the state troopers so that they used their business parking lot as a mobile headquarters.

Vandalism, assaults on property, attempted robberies....all went to zero.

Thanks officers!

It's hard to find good employees because of the booming economy. A million jobs are unfilled. Why work in retail when you can find a higher paying job?

The thing is jewelry store robberies are often very organized and committed by armed, dangerous pros. Cops really put their lives on the line responding to these calls. So it is particularly ironic and wrong for a jewelry store to treat a customer who is police officer so disrespectfully.

I would be very curious if there was a written policy that the manager was diligently following. I have seen way too many times over the last 30 years where someone was fired for making a bad choice that defied common sense, got bad media PR and was still a situation of correctly following policy. Remember most policies are not created via common sense but via what the companies insurance carrier or lawyers want.

Mr ex- manager, take your previous employer to court. You have a good case. Your employee is just kissing law enforcement butts by boosting their egos. They think they are Gods who don’t have to obay any rules
What a stupid post, he has no case. The deputy was trying to patronize the business, not disobey any rule. You obviously have no respect for those that protect you and your rights.

I would have thanked the officer for wearing a service-style revolver as opposed to the assault-style semi-automatics that most officers pack nowadays, such as the Glock, Beretta, etc. The service-style revolver is a kinder, gentler weapon.

There's a bank nearby me that I walk past all the time where the security guards carry service-style revolvers rather than semi-automatics. I thank them every time I pass by.

I want to see a picture of the manager. I need to see what this monumentally ignorant moron looks like.

...really?...you'd of thanked him for wearing a 'less scary' weapon...?...any of those you mentioned, including the revolver, would put a sizable hole in ones skull....but i guess, if it's less scary.............
