  1. i bet you they didnt do it and the employee is lying.. whats the status of the story? it seems like everyone believes the news when it may not be factual. let wait to see what type of evidence is provided before we execute this police officer. i guess to the previous comments its “guilty until proven innocent” huh!

  2. So why were these officers not shot in the back for brandishing gun like Eugene Velarde was back in Denver on June 10th, 2009?

  3. As a trained psychotherapist I must ashamedly admit that there are many times when I can’t conceive of what people could be thinking, which was one of the reasons I gave up my practice.
    We can easily dismiss this Officer as a fascist twit, but even someone like that should know it was a very bad idea to unholster his gun. While the act alone should get him fired, I would also think he should be fired for being psychologically
    disturbed, or terminally stupid.

  4. If one person ate 2 Big Macs every day for 20 years and another smoked 20 cigarettes for the same period which one would die first? I think it would be a close run thing. Make of this idle musing what you will…

  5. Well from my point of view (this story aside), fascism has come to America.

    With respect to this story? The guy should be “off the force” and charges should be filed.

  6. LottaK,

    Sometimes it hard to convict the real criminals. You see they sometime hide behind the color of the law.

  7. Just a symptom of the “Two America’s” theme. And they left without paying- isn’t that armed robbery? No? Should be. Why aren’t these armed robbers in jail?

  8. Well I guess the joke for the Cops in Colorado whom are a little slow on the take can be said to be “A Couple of Fries Short of a Full Order.”

  9. There’s a joke: “Bad cop, no doughnut.”

    But seriously, trouble’s brewing — the police (some, not all) are on a tear…

  10. I just picture the cop pointing his gun at some sixteen year old kid and saying, “As a matter of fact, I would like fries with that.”

  11. “My happy meal is two fries short!” Yes, sir and here’s your food!

    I love Reno 911 and I hear a lot of it’s taken from reality. I hope this one makes it on. Those people are definitely not paid enough.

  12. They were in Denver and didn’t go to Good Times for a burger? That already puts them WAY behind on the good judgment scale.

    “You know the score, pal. If you’re not cop, you’re little people.”

    maybe cops should stick to donuts. they don’t take so long.

    and the coffee is better in the donut places anyway

    I agree that Donuts are faster. But after a night of drinking and you get pulled over as a suspect for Drunk driving. Its probably not a good ideal to as the officer if that glaze in there eye or are they a human donut.

    With respect to Coffee. I do believe that Mickey D’s has the better of the coffee.

  15. Is that a gun in your pocket or your idea of a customer service complaint? Eh . . . I can see why that joke was never used, but I can’t see why fired and criminal charges filed isn’t the appropriate option over suspension. If anyone else had done this other than a cop they’d be eating the green bologna and state cheese sandwiches. Oh, that’s right! In the new age of Corporate Empire, cops and government officials are above the law.

    “Justice without force is powerless; force without justice is tyrannical.” – Blaise Pascal

    “Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.” – Frederick Douglass

    Yep. Good job, Denver PD. Way to make the people feel safe.

  16. I guess at McDonald’s you really can Have it your way. But can you really expect to have them hold the pickles, lettuce and mayonnaise under these circumstances?
