Respect is won not forced! Walmart Just GAVE THE FINGER to Every Cop in America, Time For Boycott -or Better Training for All Law Enforcement?

27 Sep

Three cake decorators at the Walmart in McDonough, Georgia refused to decorate a “thin blue line” cake for a police officer’s retirement party because they felt it was racist, per FoxNews.com.

“I was so shocked,” said the daughter of the police officer.

“I didn’t know what to do or say or anything. I was trying not to lose my temper or make a scene,” she continued.

The daughter’s original design on the cake was to be the black-and-white version of Old Glory with a blue line through it, but she was rebuffed by not one, not two, but three of the bakers who said they could not make her the cake because it would be perceived as racist.

The police officer’s daughter suggested an alternative, which would have been a chocolate-frosted cake with a horizontal, frosted blue line, but that too was rejected.

“She said, ‘I don’t feel comfortable doing this,’” the cop’s daughter said. “I asked her, ‘Is there something wrong with cops?’”

In the wind-up, a family friend posted a Facebook message outlining her displeasure with the Walmart in the Georgia town.

The store manager ultimately called the daughter, offered to make her cake free of charge, and gave her a $50 gift card.

Problem solved, right? Well, no, not exactly because the cake decorators refused to decorate the cake to the daughter’s specifications for the fourth time.

The store manager decided to decorate the cake himself, but it was embarrassing and extremely sub-par considering that a Walmart cake is, most of the time, very professionally done.
