Second Kroger Employee Refuses Service Over ‘Police Lives Matter’ Shirt

Spring, Texas – The same day that we reported that a police officer was refused service at a Kroger checkout line, a police officer’s wife has now been refused service at another Kroger store after she was wearing a “Police Lives Matter” shirt.

Steven Romo with ABC13 reported that a woman, only identified by her first name as Meredith, went grocery shopping at the Kroger in Spring, Texas. Meredith was wearing a “Police Lives Matter” shirt in the checkout line, and the cashier apparently took offense. Instead of checking her out, the cashier left and talked with a co-worker.

“She was stating that the shirt I had on was basically a slap in the face to her and she was doing everything she could not to cry,” Meredith said.

The clerk never returned, and another cashier came over to finish ringing her up.

ABC13 reported that “Meredith said she complained to Kroger about the conversation multiple times but hasn’t received a response despite promises her concerns would be addressed.” That mirrors Kroger’s response to the police officer who was refused service. They spoke with her and then never responded.

Meredith doesn’t want the cashier to be fired, but she doesn’t think that the store should refuse service to somebody over their shirts.

Meredith said, “It’s important that people in the service industry know that no matter what, if someone walked in with a Black Lives Matter shirt on they needed to still be serviced.”

Kroger has now repeatedly failed in responding appropriately to their employees’ inappropriate behavior. If you would like to complain to Kroger, please contact their corporate office rather than contacting the Spring Kroger directly. The store undoubtedly has many hard-working employees who were not responsible for this incident, and they are not responsible for the company’s failure in handling these incidents.

Please share this story and get to word out that this has happened again, and that Kroger needs to change their response to these incidents.

UPDATE: Kroger has responded.

    Guess Kroger figures they can afford to offend and lose customers. And those customers are certainly free to (and hopefully will) take their business elsewhere…as will their friends, their families, their co-workers, Facebook followers like myself, etc. Good-bye Kroger.

      Nobody cares where you spend your food stamps, you self-righteous cop-sucker.

      • SB079

        Cop sucker, wow, did you come up with that all by yourself or are you normally an unoriginal bastard?

        • Debby Morge

          i like it she is a copsucker ftard

        • david ratay

          He is a troll my friend. He was just stirring up shit on the first Kroger story earlier today.

        • Ex Machina

          No, I got it from your whore inbred mama while she was being gang-banged by a bunch of typically filthy cops in her trailer. I guess you all those pigs, “daddy?” Man, that was such a sickening sight to see.

      • Brad Bilger

        Damn…chill man. Don’t blow
        Gasket.

    • Tan Jesus

      Grow up. This isn’t a Kroger problem.

      • Ann Elizabeth

        This is a societal problem, and the employee is making it the employer’s problem.

      • SB079

        It is when they refuse to address it

        • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

          You are 100% correct. If they are unwilling to address the issue, it becomes their problem.

      • Debby Morge

        oh yes it is , their going to piss off the wrong person and the employee and kroger will be in court. if you can’t do your job or you just want to be a arrogant ftard you should be fired

      • Yes it is if they don’t address it. This hurts their business and their reputation.

      • Debbie Trame

        It is a Kroger problem. Just as all the kneeling players are the NFL problem.
        When an employer doesn’t address the issue swiftly concerning one of their employees, it’s the whole corporation or companies problem.
        Employers are to correct all behavior from their employees that could reflect negatively on their business.

        • Mike Hanson

          Isn’t it ironic that when Tim Tebow took a knee, he was ridiculed.

    • Debbie Trame

      See how well it’s working out for the NFL. They have lost fans and advertisers are asking for reimbursement of money for the low tv audience.
      Companies and corporations need to realize they need us.
      And employees needs to realize when working in customer service, your opinions need to be checked at the door.

      • Lacey Sheridan

        That’s the only effective response: hit them in the cash register. Nothing less will make them act.

  • tekwrite

    Guess its time for a discrimination suit.

  • Brad Bilger

    This is amazing… If a police officer makes a call and someone is wearing a “Black lives matter” shirt, do you know what will happen? NOTHING. The police officer will continue to do their job as if nothing happened. Police officers do their jobs. Why can’t these people simply do their jobs as their paid to do? If they don’t do their job then that is a legitimate reason for termination.

    • Tan Jesus

      At least you hope they will – Kroger has 500,000 employees… there are roughly 900,000 police officers in the US (quick google search) which means that police officers have obvious bad apples also. We shouldn’t judge police officers by their bad apples… nor should we judge Kroger by their bad apples. It’s a two way street.

      • Ann Elizabeth

        That doesn’t relate in any way, shape or form to what the poster asked.

        • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

          Get used to it from the TROLL. Apparently Tan Jesus has a hard time staying on point and reading comprehension.

          • david ratay

            I have seen your work before and you freakin’ rock dude! But Tan Jesus made a good point. I too am a cop and I don’t like being pre-judged because somebody with a badge misbehaves. We really shouldn’t over-react to this. I do business checks in our local Kroger in Ohio at least twice a week on patrol and all the employees are very courteous. I agree that both employees should have been terminated or at least suspended but we can’t hate on the other 499,998 employees.

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            I never made one suggestion that either employee should be terminated or suspended. Nor did I disparage any of their other employee’s. I do not know where you got that from at all.

          • david ratay

            Just to clarify, I made my comment based on the overall conversation, not just your position. I just don’t think that Tan Jesus is a troll, in fact I thought he made some good points. Kroger does need to address it but I believe they are afraid of BLM repercussions. I for one believe that both employees should be put on notice that a second time they don’t do their jobs they will be kicked to the curb…

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            I get that, but the first post TJ made to me was insulting and rude. Therefore, TROLL!!! If you cannot have a conversation without name calling that makes you a TROLL.

          • david ratay

            Tan Jesus must have deleted his comment because I don’t see it. I consider “ex machina” a troll, not TJ, but we all have a right to our opinion. GO TRUMP!

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            “I’m glad your name is deplorable because you are. Target wants men to
            use the restroom with girls… Kroger did NOTHING wrong here, they
            policed their own and this idiot cashier is going through the
            disciplinary process. Your powers of reasoning are amazing, let me tell
            you.”

            Tan Jesus

          • Lacey Sheridan

            Perhaps not in those locations?

          • Debbie Trame

            The anger is towards a company that now has two incidents of this happening, and still has made no public statement or apologies.
            The last was a cashier that refused to ring up an officer in uniform.

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            Just to be clear, she was wearing a “police shirt” (supporting police) and was with her 6 year old daughter. The cashier asked her about the shirt, and her occupation, which is absolutely none of her business.

            However, your point is still valid.

            http://bluelivesmatter.blue/krogers-refuses-service-cop/

          • david ratay

            Debbie, again, I agree with you but we can’t boycott everybody. I already said I was a cop and I find all of this “refusing to serve cops business” absolutely appalling! As I just told I AM DEPLORABLE, Kroger needs to address it but they are afraid of the BLM clowns!

          • Brad Bilger

            I agree with you sir. The problem isn’t kroger, the problem is with the individual employee. The problem should be self correcting. During orientation of the new employee, the manager should state that all customers will be served with politeness and dignity. Any infraction will result in termination. When an infraction is reported, it’s investigated and the individual is either terminated or returned to work. This isn’t a Kroger problem or a McDonalds’ problem or any of the other companies problem. This is a societal problem.

      • TeeCeeBee

        I won’t judge a whole company on what a couple of employees do. I will, however, judge them on their corporate headquarters not responding in a timely manner, or perhaps not responding at all.

      • Zado

        We will judge Kroger by their lack of action in these two incidents

      • JenMalice

        Tan: except that police officers ARE being judged by the few bad apples.. According to the Justice Department, there are over 65 million calls for police every year. Last year, about1200 people were killed by the police with a little over 300 being black, yet the police are being portrayed as lawless murdering racists?! Nobody wants to look past what the corrupt news media is reporting.

        • Lacey Sheridan

          Correct. The data is clear. But people believe what they want to believe.

    • Praying4America

      I’m pretty sure if this cashier ever has to call 911….the police will matter ALOT!!!! if it offended her that much she should have excused herself and quietly called another cashier over… Her action was wrong.. she should be suspended or at least Kroger can apologize and direct her on customer service. Very disappointed in Kroger’s non-reaction to an obviously heartbreaking moment for the tshirt lady. God Bless and protect our policemen!.

      • Kristen Loomis

        I think, at bare minimum, Kroger needs to implement a policy that if you feel you cannot deal with a specific customer, you can, like you suggested, quietly request someone else take care of the customer. There’s no reason it has to blow up like this. That’s a failure in tact.

        • Chris Chambers

          No, they should be terminated immediately (following proper company procedures). There is no excuse, when the employee takes the job, for the employee to not be able to provide the same service to everyone that requires it, with no exceptions. Otherwise they should seek employment elsewhere. If the employee refuses, the company should perform due diligence to out process them (usually a formal written, followed by final write up with termination).

          • Kristen Loomis

            I don’t disagree, I merely said at bare minimum, in reaction/response to another person’s comment.

          • Lacey Sheridan

            Agreed. Once this behavior is tolerated, where does it stop? An employee can decide not to serve a black man, a gay couple, Jews, ….

    • vet6567

      B.s.

      • Brad Bilger

        I love partial answers. BS to what I said or BS to the clerk at the store? These are the people that demand a $15/hr wage yet refuse to wait on the customer and make political decisions that result in their termination. I’ve spent my entire life working public safety. Many of my friends are police. They would treat anyone fairly. If attacked, they will defend themselves. Without law enforcement, this country would be in anarchy. Worse than what we are now due to the lack of support from the federal government.

  • Kristen Loomis

    If the phrase “Police Lives Matter” on a shirt causes you that much strife that you might cry, perhaps you should be in a therapist’s office instead of at work.

    When a criminal comes into the emergency room and needs quick and diligent care so they won’t die, do the nurses or doctors get to say “I’m offended by (whatever the criminal did) and I refuse to help them.”? No, they still have to pull up their big kid pants and take care of the criminal as if they were a regular person.

    We need to stop excusing this shit. Do businesses have the right to refuse service? I’d imagine that’s probably a thing across the country, I could be wrong. To refuse service to a LEO or their family or supporters though? Grow up and get over yourself.

    • FedUpw/Whinerbabies

      As a healthcare professional, I say AMEN, Kristen! If Kroger will allow this, then no bakery owner should have to bake a cake if they aren’t in “the mood”. I’m done with double standards and whiney people. Grow up or go elsewhere.

      • Debby Morge

        she should be fired if i went in that store i would file a civil law suit against the employee,this new breed of idiots needs to know that isnt how the business world work

        • Brian Blanch

          Here here

      • vet6567

        We are happy to go elsewhere and we do. Why so hard for pigs to do the same? Instead they FORCE their way into places where NOBODY wants them.

        • Lacey Sheridan

          “Force their way into places where nobody wants them?” That must be one of the most ironic comments

          • GreenScorpion

            No not Ironic just stupid, downright stupid.

          • JenMalice

            Especially coming from someone who identifies themselves as a “vet”. I’m pretty sure anyone who has gone to battle overseas has forced themselves into places where they’re not wanted. Oh, the irony! Lol

          • Melanie Wood

            Right? It’s a GROCERY STORE. Force their way into places nobody wants them??? How about they just want to buy milk???

        • Edith D Thurman

          If you are ever raped shot stabbed or the like I hope the cops are really busy that day and it takes a long time to help your sorry excuse for a human!

          • J. Doe

            So, you have a problem with a cashier not giving top service to someone but you’re Ok with police, who are the employees of The People, not giving top service to someone.

            Interesting.

          • Lacey Sheridan

            I have a problem with the >1% who abuse their authority, and I certainly take issue with police who kill people without justification. But that’s no excuse to disrespect the 99% who do their jobs.

            This type of thinking is exactly the same as those who see every black man as a violent gangbanger, based on the behavior of a tiny minority of black men.

            Interesting you don’t perceive that.

          • Tim

            Because your numbers are off. If its was just 1% of cops abusing their authority then we would NOT be having this discussion. Its closer to 30%. And its bc a hair dresser gets more training than a cop. And its bc we hire military people suffering from ptsd. Its bc the job itself attracts the lowest form of humanity. Someone who craves authority over others. In a modern age there are far better ways to give out speeding tickets than creating the monsters you call the police force. But our gov uses this force to bully the weak and the poor. So don’t expect anything to change. We are an occupied nation and the cops and the wealthy 1% of the population are the ones occupying us.

          • Lacey Sheridan

            This is silly. The data are available from the Washington Post and other sources. Law enforcement arrest 12 MILLION people each year in the US; how many videos have you seen?

          • redleg500

            Tim, Source on your claim?

          • Brian Blanch

            Then move the fuck out. Whiney ass whore. You run your mouth but would call the police if you had a problem.

          • Lacey Sheridan

            Anyone who suggests that this is an “occupied” nation or a “police state” has never been in one.

          • John J Rouse

            Tiny minority? Black males are 6% of the population and committed 54% of the murders and 61% of all violent crime. Hardly a tiny minority

          • Lacey Sheridan

            But the number committing the crimes is a very small percentage of the black population.

          • John J Rouse

            It’s more than all other races combined, what part of that aren’t you getting?

          • Lacey Sheridan

            What part of statistics & probability 101 do you not understand? Yes, black males are disproportionately commiting violent crime, but the NUMBER of black males involved is only a small subset of the black male population as a whole.

          • John J Rouse

            It’s a lot larger than everyone else’s.

          • Lacey Sheridan

            And?

          • John J Rouse

            And…blacks, especially the males, are the most criminalistic race on this planet.

          • Lacey Sheridan

            That’s the same type of stereotyping that some people use about police. It’s simplistic, unfair thinking.

          • John J Rouse

            It’s very fair because blacks commit the most crimes….duh

          • Lacey Sheridan

            People who refuse to acknowledge facts are a part of the problem.

          • John J Rouse

            I guess that makes you part of the problem then

How about the KKK? White people take the cake when it comes to violence and murder. Clean up your own backyard before you speak ill of someone else’s.

          • John J Rouse

            Hey asshole we are in 2016 and blacks commit 54% of the murders despite being barely 13% of the population. What part of that don’t you fucking get?

    • J. Doe

      Perhaps what she finds disturbing is the blind adoration most people have for police. Blue Lives Matter is as much a gang and cult as Black Lives Matter.

      I agree that as an employee she should serve everyone that her employer tells her to serve but she doesn’t have to agree with the sentiments on some stupid shirt.

      • Kristen Loomis

        No one suggested she agree with the sentiment expressed on the shirt. That was never part of the debate.

        As for blind adoration, I’d imagine that in some cases there are people for whom LEOs can do no wrong.
        My personal feeling, as I’ve said multiple times, is that I appreciate and respect that they put their uniform on and walk out of their doors not knowing if it’s the last time, and that’s something I don’t have the proverbial balls to do.

        That’s not an endorsement, that’s not a free pass, just take it at face value. I respect and appreciate all first responders for what they do.

      • JenMalice

        Please name one person who has committed a violent act in the name of Blue Lives Matter, otherwise you can’t call them a gang. On the other hand, many people have committed crimes in the name of Black Lives Matter: During the memorials to the 50 people that were murdered in the gay nightclub in Orlando Black Lives Matter interrupted that to complain about racism; in New York City and LA, they took to the streets yelling for police to die. So, please tell me how the activities of Blue Lives Matter compares to that. Seriously, give me a list of all the related events.

        • Tim

          Right bc when you are the one with the gun and the badge what you do is legal. You can bully, beat and berate at will hell you can even kill someone. Especially if he or she is black. But thats not a crime bc you have a badge. You’re an idiot I hope the cops nail your ass over something you didn’t do. I hope you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time and find out what the police you love so much are really like. See how much your rich privilege helps your dumb ass out in jail.

          • JenMalice

            I don’t think I was responding to your ignorance, Tim, but there you go chiming in, again. I never claimed to have a badge, but I have a lot of police officers as friends and family, good and bad. None of them stoop to the depths of depravity that you speak about. I’m not sure what terrible trauma you have endured during your life, but obviously it has scarred you deeply and psychologically. What a pitiful angry person you are.

          • Tim

            If you were truly educated then you would KNOW that someone having a degree is merely a measure of how docile they are. Which you clearly are. Oh and when I did watch news programming I always watched fox. But that was before I woke up and realized that none of it mattered. Its socialism now and has been for a long long time. Only now we are living in a police state.. Well since 911. You’re just dumb.

      If the people who get jobs working for the gov as the gestapo want to be treated with respect then they need to get a REAL job. Being a fucking pig isn’t a real job. Its being a gov spy living among us. They plant evidence they lie their asses off in court and they don’t give a fuck about OUR rights. When are you idiots going to learn that cops are NOT on our side. Local GOV gets federal money for every person that they can put in jail !! Its a racket. Your GOV isn’t interested in protecting and serving your ass. If they can they will put your ass in jail given any excuse. I knew a guy who did six months over not having a fucking fishing license !!! Land of the free my ass !!! There needs to be change and it won’t come from a system of voting thats set up to disenfranchise our votes. I’m glad there are people brave enough to take matters in their own hands. These are the real hero’s. Yep the shooters are hero’s. The cops are zero’s. You want your life to matter then get a job in a soup kitchen feeding the poor instead of tossing them in jail so your city can get paid !!!! Fuck ’em. And anyone who thinks cops are good are brainwashed dumbfucks.

I’ve seen young black children run over by the cops while on their bicycles … You think that young man is going to grow up respecting cops ? I’m glad you find humor in what is a national crisis. Cops are a problem and they need to be dealt with. There are plenty of other ways that they can give out traffic tickets. Nothing else they do is of consequence. They don’t prevent crime, they get there AFTER the fact. Or haven’t you noticed ?

          • Kristen Loomis

            You are completely delusional.

          • Tim

            Right the truth would seem delusional to someone living in your fairy tale world where the cops are the good guys.

          • Kristen Loomis

            Totally, now take a step or two back please, you’re casting a shadow on my white privilege.

          • John J Rouse

          Take your own advice.

      • JenMalice

        Tim, I call BS on your claim that someone went to jail for 6 months for simply not having a fishing license. Now if he didn’t have a fishing license and caught an incredible number of protected or limited fish illegally, thereby raping the resource… then THAT is a possibility. You are the the dumb ass and a liar, to boot.

        • Tim

          And I call BS on you. I’m involved enough in my community that I see what happens. The man was a poor minority. And his son figured out a way to get in jail just to be able to take care of his elderly father.. Raping the resource lol.. Sounds like someone raped your brain. Across a bed of coals.. You are living in a dream world if you think that minorities are picking up guns and shooting at cops just because… Thats as stupid as your post. They and other poor people are being bullied by the fucking gestapo police force that you love so much bc you are too privileged or too brainless to care or know.

          • JenMalice

            You better just quit that meth. It is clearly rotting your brain. Lol

          • Tim

            Well you used to could get meth over the counter. Until the gov figured out that they could make more money by making it illegal. Having said that I don’t do meth. But if we truly lived in a free country then I should be able too.. But we don’t. We live in a socialist state and cops enforce that socialism and you are an idiot who has NEVER had one single original thought. Nor are you capable of thinking for yourself. Things are just the way the media tells you they are right ? LMFAO. Pick up a book. Assuming you can read.

          • JenMalice

            Well, considering I’ve worked in the inner city health care systems of Miami, D.C and in Wyoming, I’ll bet I can read better than most. I have paid for my education (Master’s) one piece at a time without any government assistance or family assistance so, I’d say I’m not privileged either. As for original thought, everything you have said I have heard on CNN or MSNBC. I was attempting to give you some factual information, but it’s easier for you to be ignorant and throw insults. Once Hillary gets elected, you will truly understand what socialism is. With Obama, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

          • Tim

            We are in a socialist police state now. have been since 911. You’re just too stupid to know it.

    • Ronnie McCullough

      Well unfortunately yourself as well as the folks that wear the badge took a oath! And topic and level of treatment and compassion in the medical field is a whole different issue…..nurses, doctors even intake!!

      • Kristen Loomis

        As a civilian I’ve taken no such oath. My responsibility lies in raising my child to be a respectable, respectful, productive, and self sufficient adult who doesn’t judge people by their skin color but by their character instead.

        As far as comparing the medical professionals to any other occupation, the point was to get over your personal feelings for a few minutes and do your job. This was an unnecessary incident that should not be condoned/excused.

  • Ashley

    I don’t see how this is any different from refusing service due to skin color, religion, or nationality. They are still discriminating against the person for who they are. I’m in retail and the few times I refused service was because of instances of extreme and repeated awful behavior. These children need to grow up and understand life is about dealing with things and people. If the person is being nice and not actively threatening you, do your job.

    • Tan Jesus

      It’s different than race/religion/nationality… but it’s still discrimination. Kroger is working these rouge cashiers through the discipline process and will end up terminating them.

      • Zado

        I for one will settle for nothing less

  • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

    Apparently Kroger wants their stock to drop like a rock as Target’s did. Very foolish stand for these companies to make.

    • Tan Jesus

      I’m glad your name is deplorable because you are. Target wants men to use the restroom with girls… Kroger did NOTHING wrong here, they policed their own and this idiot cashier is going through the disciplinary process. Your powers of reasoning are amazing, let me tell you.

      • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

        I never stated that Target and Kroger did the same thing. They took stands on political issues that will hurt their business. Not only has there been no disciplinary process, Kroger has not even responded back to the customers who were refused service by some BLaMers ignorant asshole.

        • Tan Jesus

          You’re full of shit and have no idea what you’re talking about.

        Oh the name-calling! SMH

      • Debbie Trame

        Only disciplinary process should have been for her supervisor to fire her on the spot.
        Kroger’s did wrong by not PUBLICLY apologizing to the law enforcement of this country and to ensure their employees know that refusal to do the job they were hired to do, will be grounds for immediate dismissal.

    • Ex Machina

      Yeah, their stock will tank because of an isolated incident in some shithole Texas town. News flash, cop-sucker, nobody in California, New York, Illinois or any other state gives a shit about some pathetic wife of a pig getting refused service in a grocery store. Get over it and move along with your sad little life.

      • Tan Jesus

        Why don’t you shut your mouth… I realize the over funded Black Lives Matter group is paying you to post this useless drivel, but you’re a damned idiot for this post.

        • Ex Machina

          Hahahahaha!! Well I would tell you to shut your mouth but then you might bite off some fat filthy pig’s junk in the process. It’s amazing you can post your shit when you have your dirty toothless mouth plastered to some fat pig’s junk. Now swallow that filth and slither off. Good for you though, asshole. It’s great to have goals.

            Exmachismo – You’re a cop hater because you’re jealous. Either your criminal record or stupidity prevented you from passing the background check that’s required. Or perhaps you are just too much of a pussy to do their job.

          • Ex Machina

            When you swallow down so much dirty cop seed, do you instantly get the AIDS you so rightfully deserve or does it take some time while your shredded knees heal? Well which is it you cop-sucking, pig-fucking retarded piece of inbred shit? Tick tock, asshole.

      • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

        I feel pure pity for you. The fact that you have that much hatred in your heart is disturbing. I would suggest you go into some serious psychotherapy.

        • Ex Machina

          Well, this is awkward but, frankly, you can shove your pure pity straight up your filthy ass – that is if it will even fit given that your fat head is already up there.

            TROLL

            I would tell you to go to Hell, but I am guessing by how foul and disgusting you are, you are already there. I hope someday you find peace in your soul. God Bless you and have a great day!!!

          • Ex Machina

            Fuck you. Go fuck yourself. GO fuck your inbred mama and go fuck your queer daddy. When you stop sucking that cop in the back alley, take his gun, shove it up your ass and see how many times you can pull the trigger. Now, fuck you.

          • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

            Such an intelligent response. Does it always take you this long to respond or were you in jail for committing a crime? Considering how foul mouthed and ignorant you are, I bet that is it.

          • Ex Machina

            Cop-sucker. Go fuck yourself.

            Now I even pity you more. It took you 20 days to come up with that response. Now, go back to your safe space in your mother’s basement.

      • Debby Morge

        oh yes we do kroger will respond only we dont act like ignorant animals by looting trashing and bothering people who could care less about your racist blm,that girl will be out of that store by weeks end

        • Ex Machina

          Good. Now fuck you.

  • James Donahue

    Kroger uses unskilled laborers in most every position and has a list 50 miles long with people appling to work there. Kroger is also a monopoly in most every city with Walmart there only competition, guess they feel that there’s no reason for them to respond cause there too many managers on break right now.

    • Sue Sandlin Barrett

      You are as close minded as this employee. I work for Kroger Mr. Donahue. Ido not condone this cashier response and he or she should be reprimanded. I do take offense to the unskilled labor remark. There are many highly educated people who are just as racist as this person appeared to be. Yes Kroger’s has college graduates too. I challenge you to do my job for one day.

      • David Bill

        The disrespect given to Police and those who openly support the Police is appalling. Reprimanded? No! Ask to resign or quit, either one is acceptable. This has got to stop.

        • Sue Sandlin Barrett

          I agree with you David ..it does need to stop.

      • Ann Elizabeth

        I know it doesn’t sound nice, but grocery is actually classified as unskilled labor. Not all positions would be unskilled (management) but that’s how they are classified by labor and union.

  • Cathy Lynn

    Really you cry because police lives matter? She had some serious issues and should see a therapist. And oh ya when you need help call Ben and Jerrys bc they don’t think police lives matter either! Kroger you need to apologize for her rediculous behavior!

    • Tan Jesus

      Kroger doesn’t need to do anything other than run her through the standard process. Stop asking a business to pander to you because you got your feelings hurt. You are part of what’s wrong with society and no better than the Black Lives Matter group.

      • Cathy Lynn

        Wow your a piece of work!

      • Debby Morge

        WRONG the little ftard is the problem along with the rest of blm it’s a bull shit group with no agenda other than to be ignorant trouble makers,

        • Kyoko Sakata

          If I say Human Lives Matter that includes everyone. Is that better for your feels? All skin colors matter. That includes Whites, Blacks and everyone else in the spectrum. Let’s just elevate the issue to it being a human problem instead of blaming a so called group because they are fighting to not get killed or stepped on. Human Lives Matter includes you and everyone else.

          • david ratay

            They may not have to “fight to not get killed” so much if they would stop breaking the law like it is their freakin’ job. And for every black the police kill they kill 1000 of each other. BLM IS bullshit and they are just making things worse for everybody.

          • Debby Morge

            when people infringe or force their violence on me,i tend to lose respect for that group,blocking traffic destroying property,i have no respect for anyone that does these things

          • Debby Morge

            if they dont want to get killed then they should stop breaking the law

  • So if someone came in wearing a shirt saying Criminal Lives Matter how would she respond. Also the cashier should stop and think if police lives don’t matter then what about the next time they need to call the police. As the police are getting killed in the line of duty (because too many people think police lives don’t matter) potentially there could be less police to respond to their call for help. It’s just a shirt and the person wearing it is expressing their opinion. So suck it up buttercup and do your job. It’s a hell of a lot safer than a police officers. Kroger – you should be ashamed for not having a policy to fire someone for not doing their job. The cashier and store was not in danger – so fire the cashier!

    • wamblir

      The only problem with kroger and their other stores are that the cashiers belong to union and it is hard for them to fire

      • Lee Collins

        In most unions they have a progressive disciplinary phase. It takes so many write ups before a person can be terminated, but I don’t believe they have to go through that to be terminated for Refusing to do their job. If you refuse to do what you were hired to do that’s grounds for termination.

  • MadHattie

    Someone doesn’t like having a job?

    • tess007

      Oh they like having a job…for pay reasons only!! It’s amazing how many young people don’t want to do what they were employed to do.

      • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

        That is so true. My own son learned that the hard way. Once he was terminated I told him that he has the right to act like a pompous little millennial, but they also have the right to fire you. His next job was a whole different story. He learned his lesson.

  • Sheila Ray

    Maybe we need to boycott Kroger. Shouldn’t matter which side you support you shouldn’t be denied services. IMO.

    • Ex Machina

      Go ahead and boycott, Kroger. That will give them a chance to restock their shelves after you consuming everything they had.

      • Debby Morge

        that little bitch is probably already fired they only get away with their black shit on the streets no one cares but them

        • Ex Machina

          Shhhhh, Debby. Isn’t there a gaggle of cops you should be blowing nearby?

          • Debby Morge

            your really into cocks and assholes did your daddy play hide the sausage with you

  • Gio

    I have an ever growing distrust for the police, specially as we get more and more evidence and reports of some cops all over the country abusing their power, and I think people have a right to protest whatever they want and voice their opinions, but do it on your own damn time, if you are at work, do your job, simple, there is a time and place for everything, your place of work is not it.

    Also, the cops should know better than anyone that you can’t simply fire people all willy nilly just because of a complaint , Kroger probably needs to go through proper procedures before laying down the hammer on anyone, probably investigate it and then make a decision, I’m sure it could take some time depending on state laws and company policies.

    • Chaz Knight 247

      Where in this article were you given the idea that “cops” wanted this cashier fired? Or is that just your ill-informed bias towards them rearing its ugly head so you can take a dig at them wanting someone fired “all willy nilly”??

    • CC Roness

      You must understand something about law…..some states are Employment at Will…meaning employers can let you go for any reason. If a t shirt makes this employee leave her station and want to cry, she needs to be let go as it appears to me she is emotionally unstable. However, from what I have read regarding Kroger’s employees having an issue with service of law enforcement officers and family, nowhere have I read the person wanted them fired. They wanted a response from Kroger’s-which it also appears to me the National is still waiting to hear a response as well. I, myself, will be boycotting any company owned by Kroger’s due to this issue.

      • Debby Morge

        i want her fired

    • Debby Morge

      not me i dont care that they took out scum not one of them killed was a upstanding citizen,they had sheets book length

    • Steve

      Their stock seems to be inching up. I sold mine when they were asserting their 2nd amndmnt opposition. I’m a very small part of their business. They won’t miss my business and I will enjoy checking out new stores and feel better about it.

  • disgustedinnlv

    Complain to Kroger Customer Service at 800’576-4377…let them know you want something done. Also let them know you are sharing this all over social media. The guy I talked to said they only had about 50 calls regarding this…we can do better.

  • nomrah20

    Yep, and they want 15 bucks an hour to refuse service…

  • Ida Marie Foster Daigre

    I think they should be fired, they are there to serve the public, whether they be of any race, religion or other…..it is idiotic over this blue, white black or any other color matters….IN GOD”S EYES WE ALL MATTER!!!!!

  • Tan Jesus

    This proverbial witch hunt is ridiculous. Kroger as a company has nothing to do with these idiots who’ve refused to service people based on their affiliation with “blue lives matter”. This article and the other one about Alexandria make this organization look like a bunch of whiny babies who didn’t get their way. Be better than Black Lives Matter, focus on doing the right thing and not asking a business to pander to you… you don’t need handouts, you need businesses to be fair and just. Kroger is working through the disciplinary process for these people and will eventually get to the point where they can terminate them… but to pretend as though this is some systemic issue that Kroger is creating is disingenuous and makes us all look stupid. Of course Kroger doesn’t tell their employees to not service Blue Lives people… of course they have policies on how to handle these types of issues, their employees are mostly union based so they have to follow those processes… some of which are dictated by the law. They don’t get to just fire someone because you throw a tantrum, they have to document the issues and base the decision on what will keep them from getting sued. The way you feel about this is irrelevant and to remotely compare this to the Target situation is ridiculous. Kroger protects your rights to carry in their stores, because it’s the law. They back your play every day despite the same threats from assholes on the other side of the coin with Moms Demand Action… yet you want to throw a tantrum over two rogue employees who decided to mess with your fragile sense of self? This isn’t a Kroger issue, it’s a societal issue… grow up and handle it like adults. Stop asking this business to pander to you because it makes you just as bad as the left.

    • Debby Morge

      she needs to be fired

    • Debbie Trame

      Sorry that’s BS
      If it’s company policy, every employee knows their employers stance on things.
      Unions only protect you so far.
      Kroger’s should have made every employee sign a document stating that they will not tolerate such behavior, after the first instance of this treatment of a customer.

    Boycott Kroger and fire the cashier for not doing their job.

    • Tan Jesus

      They already did or are, depending on which case.

  • Jason Bryan

    I say bullshit to not contacting the stores directly. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE for the hiring and firing of “cashiers” not corp HQ.
    Store managers are DIRECTLY involved in what goes on in a particular store. What happens there is a DIRECT influence of what happens to the people BELOW THEM.

    So yes, CONTACT the store DIRECTLY. Flood their phone lines, email inboxes and fax machines.

  • Cleo1117

    Sounds like Kroger’s needs to feel a boycott for a while. This is probably the actual store where I shop.

  • C rizzo

    I certainly hope when this piece of shits life or family member is in danger that they remember this and call a crackhead for help. A few weeks back the founder of blm in Houston was robbed by an armed black man the next day he was recorded demanding more police presence in his neighborhood. These people are a total joke.

  • Travis Galvan

    “Kroger has now repeatedly failed in responding appropriately to their employees’ inappropriate behavior.”
    I fail to see how refusing to service someone with a pro-terrorism shirt is inappropriate. I believe this employee has a high degree of integrity and did the right thing. Ostracism is a powerful tool for correcting bad social behavior. If we could get everyone to ostracize the police and everyone who supports their bad behavior, they might come around and start acting civilized.

    • C rizzo

      “Start acting civilized”, Wow that’s the funniest post I’ve read in a while. Go and YouTube ( black riots), and then get back to me about acting civilized. It resembles a National geographic special I watched recently. Please give me a figure or a percentage of police officers not acting civilized compared to blacks not acting civilized

      • david ratay

        Did Buckwheat really just say that a Blue Lives Matter shirt is pro-terrorist? Unbelievable. Or is a white guilt pussy. Either way, unbelievable…

      • Travis Galvan

        Cops kill, on average, 3 people every day, all year long. U.S. cops kill more people in a week than cops in the UK have killed in the last 100 years. That’s not an exaggeration. If you think DAILY MURDER is civilized, you are part of the problem.

        • C rizzo

          0ne weekend in July 21 black people all killed by black people and not a peep from black people or blm, cops shoot a convicted felon, pedophile, aggravated woman assaulter who had an illegal gun and blm and there supporters burn down stores, assault people and loot and steal for 3 days straight. I agree that bad cops are among good ones, but one of the biggest problems in the black community is incredible lack of accountability. I am not part of the problem, the town I live in doesn’t have a black person around in for hundreds of miles, we have very little crime.

    • leigh anna

      But if someone made this the other way around, it’d be wrong and/or discrimination correct? Wow. This comment of yours proves uneducated people can use “big words”.

  • Lisa

    She wasn’t refused service, just not rung up by that particular cashier. Get over this crap and making yourself feel discriminated against.

    • Lacey Sheridan

      It’s unacceptable behavior for an employee. Flip it: a racist white cashier refuses to ring up a black customer, walks away and tells another employee to do it, saying ” being that close to a black man is too much for me.” What do you think would happen?

      • Lisa

        Basin get it upon someone’s skin color of which there is no control is not the same as choosing what to wear for the day

        • Lacey Sheridan

          Irrelevant. Employees are paid to service the public. They can’t elect to deal with only certain customers and refuse to serve others simply because they are personally offended. I dislike dealing with people wearing Trump t-shirts/hats; too bad. Kristen Loomis explains this perfectly below.

        • Kristen Loomis

          Discrimination is discrimination no matter what brush you want to paint it with. It might not be to the same degree when you’re talking about a shirt that was chosen versus the skin color you were born with, but it doesn’t change what it is. It only changes the degree of disgruntlement it should cause.

    • Debby Morge

      she was and the ftard needs to be fired

      • Lisa

        Ftard? Aren’t you a sweetheart, lol. I’ve seen a lot of your previous comments and you’re a troll looking to goad someone to stoop to your level, and that won’t be me.

    I wonder what what has happened to freedom of speech. Maybe that needs to be addressed by these bigoted cashiers.

  • LUCY BALLSY

    Sunday I wrote Kroger Corp. And addressed this and gave them a piece of my mind. My family is boycotting them and I’m going to spread this to make sure my neighbors and friends do the same.

  • Cool

    “FIRE” that incredibly stupid and moronic employee! I’m offended by hearing her actions here….I think I got PTSD from hearing this….I’m going to “SUE” her now for causing PTSD by her actions!

    • Debby Morge

      me too

  • Rod Martin

    You never hear someone wearing BLM attire being refused services. Why ? Nobody wants to be called racist. I say say bull! Of course Blue Lives Matter will not riot over hurt feelings either.

  • Kyoko Sakata

    Sadly, America has become this country where people do not take their feelings, fold them up and place them in their back pocket to get things done. T-shirts have been walking billboards for YEARS with all kinds of saying to poke at people or declare one’s stance. Now, someone gets offended by what you believe in and their world falls apart. I wish America was not so fragile. Something happened between the 80’s and 90’s (probably politically correct garbage) and now people feel entitled to not do things because someone hurt their feels. What a mess.

    • Kristen Loomis

      It’s most definitely the birth of “political correctness” that has set in motion this garbage where you’re not supposed to hurt anyone’s feelings. All kids get trophies because we don’t want their little feelings hurt. Don’t call that person short, they’re vertically challenged. Now we have “triggers” and people are supposed to tip toe around so they can try to not trigger anyone. Finally we have the victim mentality… yeah that thing. I can’t serve you because your shirt triggers me, pardon me while I find a coworker who will coddle me and tell me everything will be okay, even though there’s nothing fucking wrong in the first place in that scenario. …but I digress.

  • Post Purgatory

    The Spring Texas Police Department should put out a public statement that they will not be responding to any armed robbery calls from Kroger (basically send a message that it’s okay to rob the place). After the cashiers get a couple guns stuck in their face, let’s see how they feel about the police.

    • I AM DEPLORABLE ✓ᵀᴿᵁᴹᴾ

      These type of people would complain if the police were there 10 seconds after the robbery started. They would complain that they took too long to respond and after it was over they would complain that the officer’s had their weapons drawn. There is absolutely no pleasing these people.

  • Voice of the People

    Hire more NON-police haters. Let the police haters starve, clean the gene pool.

  • Hawki56

    Fire the employee – period. It is classic discrimination. I hope it triggers a Kroger boycott !

  • ScottAg83

    Maybe we should start requesting only white cashiers to check us out.

  • Sonny Pratt

    Fire the cashier and the manager.

  • Goddess

    this is what happens when you raise children to have “safe spaces” because words hurt. WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD, where not everybody agrees with your stupid, idiotic, libtard, “logic”. either do your fucking job, or be unemployed, like the rest of your useless and UNPATRIOTIC BLM crew.

  • nuckinfuts

    If I were the store manager, my reaction would have been blunt. Finish ringing that customer, or clock out because you are finished. Stop by tomorrow morning to pick up your last check.

  • deebon

    Hope that cunt at the register needs to call the police one day and they refuse her service

  • Roger Rose

    Black Americans have many imaginary issues in their lives,
    the police are profiling me, the police are harassing me for no reason, the
    police are hunting me down and executing me, these imaginary issues are based
    on false narratives, that are not supported by any facts or truth.

    • Kristen Loomis

      Mmm not completely. “DWB” or Driving While Black is a real thing, I’ve seen it for myself. I guess that could fall under profiling. It may not be as dramatic or frequent as groups like BLM might claim, but it does happen.

      As for the rest of it, well yeah, that’s the victim card.

  • jngtelco

    We should never let “Black Lies Matter” effect our lives!

  • Chris Brown

    Kroger has a Division Office in Shenandoah, Texas (near The Woodlands). If enough people contact that office, I am sure these incidents would be looked into and dealt with. If the Store Manager is not doing their job, than ratchet it up the ladder.

  • TM

    I stopped shopping at Kroger several years ago. They did their gun free zone BS and I continued to stay away. Now this incident reinforces my intent to stay away… forever.

  • Tim

    If you really want your life to matter then do something with it respectable. Beating up minorities and giving out tickets over stupid fucking ignorant laws like seat belts and shit is about the dumbest mother fucking shit ever for a career. Nobody likes you cop bc you work for a fucking oppressive state. The United States we have no freedom at all communist state. Good for Kroger keep it up. Like George Carlin said I’d rather be nice to the crook who just broke into my house and murdered my entire family than to even say hello to a fucking police !!! God damn fucking A well said George. Fuck the cops.

    • Kristen Loomis

      So you’re not calling for services if your home is broken into, right? If someone steals your car, you’re good yes? You get robbed at gunpoint while walking down the street, no problem? You get into a car accident and the other driver takes off, you’re chocking it as a loss? So many scenarios, but hey, you got that shit, you won’t ever need a fuckin cop right bruh?

      • Tim

        God damn right. If they want my car they will have to take the mother fucker with my gun pointed at them… WTF are the cops going to do ? Try to find them lol … I would never need a sorry fucking cop. I’d rather be robbed raped and beat to death then call a sorry ass fucking cop.

        • Kristen Loomis

          May the odds be ever in your favor.

          Make sure you don’t bitch out now. Stick to your word.

          • Tim

            You’re ignorant. People don’t need the cops for jack shit. When a major crime is committed they don’t get there until AFTER the fact. The only thing they do is hand out stupid tickets for stupid shit. Society isn’t so unfit that we couldnt handle our lives without the fucking gestapo kicking down our doors and hauling us off to jail for smoking a little weed. ITs fucked up.. America has the largest number of incarcerated citizens of any FREE country… Thats alarming. We don’t need the fucking cock suckers. I sure as fuck don’t. Most people are good. And most of the people in jail are good people as well. They are just victims of a society that profits from their incarceration. And that should bother you. But instead you live in your fantasy world of rainbows , butterflies and no doubt jesus where you believe every bit of bullshit propaganda your gov puts out. Like the cops are good and protect and serve lol… They are crooks with badges and guns. You want to make america great then lock up every judge, every lawyer , every cop and every fucking politician. Then we’ll be great again. Oh and it wouldn’t hurt to ship the fucking christians off with the delusional ass muslims so we could get rid of the crazy fucks too.

          • Kristen Loomis

            Totally ignorant. Never interacted with a cop ever. No idea what I’m talking about. What’s a law?

      • Tim

        They are fucking meter maids with guns. Tax collectors collecting taxes on the poor and bullying minorities.. They are the gestapo. They are NOT the good guys. They are the bad guys. My people don’t call the bad guys. Fuck cops. Every time one goes down I do a dance. Get a job that respects your fellow man if you want respect !!

        • Kristen Loomis

          Well it makes me feel better to know that if I need them they won’t be busy dealing with whatever trivial matters you have going on. Thanks!

  • tatsujay

    The shirt also says: “All Lives Matter” o.O

    • Kristen Loomis

      Don’t they though? Without placing one race over another, don’t they?
      I believe that black lives matter, I believe that white lives matter, Asian lives matter, Indian lives matter, Samoan lives matter, ect., too.
      If you can step away from the rhetoric for a moment, put the concept of the value of a life, regardless of color, at the forefront, don’t we all bleed the same red?

      Your life matters. Mine does too. Point blank, period.

  • I don’t even remember a time a shirt’s advertising even registered a blip in my brain unless it was funny.

  • Michelle Wells

    What the hell, Kroger???

  • vet6567

    Pigs are hated and their psycho asses can’t figure out why… smh. Stop shooting pets and un armed innocent citizens for one… try working on that first you fucking scum bags.

  • syfynut

    Who has started a Boycott? Does anyone know?

  • Suz Honeycutt

    It is Not Kroger Corporation

    and frankly Instead of Slamming the Entire Corporation They baked A cake Thin Blue Line When Walmart Refused. It is a Store Employee Issue And Certainly reporting there attitude To Corporate is correct. But slamming the entire Corp like this is Not appropriate. I have a huge Leo family we have used Kroger for Years never any problem even today. I am also the Founder of Support The Thin Blue Line.
    Be responsible but Not radical like the Enemies We fight today.

    JustMyTwo

    • J. Doe

      It is hypocritical. Kroger corporation or Wal-Mart corporation, or whatever are all bad when one employee does something but when one cop does something it’s “That was just one bad apple, don’t blame all cops.”

  • Kayy

    This world is full of JUNK yeah I said it JUNK. Everybody is for themselves talking about she should be fired yeah how she handle it was WRONG. Y’all are ready to see someone down fall if all the black cops was killing white people y’all would do and feel the same way.Y’all don’t know what all African American go through in this world most of them are NOT bad people. But they still have to suffer for what the others did. Seeing African Americans get killed for DOING THE RIGHT THINGS is destroying the blacks folks but everyone wants to point fingers.If this world wasn’t full of HATE it would be a better place . Either way it goes the system is going to kill us all ! God has the last say so !

    • Kristen Loomis

      Take your same argument and substitute it with law enforcement officers. People don’t want blanket statements or judgements made about black people but law enforcement is open season. Life doesn’t work that way.

  • Melanie Wood

    Made her cry? Because she’s so sad about the recent killing of cops trying to do their job? What’s the first thing she would do if she were robbed, or worse? She’d CALL THE FREAKING POLICE. So sick of hypocrites.

  • JimTB

    THE Spring, Texas City Council should pull KROGER’s license and tell, NOT ASK, TELL THEM TO LEAVE THE CITY AND DO NOT COME BACK ….. AND, DO NOT LET THE DOOR HIT THEM IN THE A** ……

  • LW Schulin

    FIRE THAT BITCH!

  • Eric Neville

    Kroger reps are very rude and from my conversation with them I can say it is obvious they despise the law enforcement community!!!

  • Pattiejn

    If a customer in a “Black Lives Matter” shirt was denied service, there would be hell to pay. This is so hypocritical. As my mother said in the 1960’s: they don’t want equal rights, they want more than equal.

  • Lynda Huff

    NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!!! SHORT AND TO THE POINT!

  • Stella Bieskie

    I heard the cashier was closing her lane, asked her to go to an open lane and now she’s making it something it’s not. egads get a life.

    • J. Doe

      These stories are always about more than is first claimed but news sites and sites like this rarely report the followup because it doesn’t support the War on Police narrative.

  • Juanita

    I hope Kroger fires these employees. This is outrageous.

  • Juanita

    Why is it a slap in her face, is she a criminal, sounds like it.

  • George Lewter Jr.

    FIRE HER.

    Maybe if everyone wrote to them they would listen

    • J. Doe

      Maybe if everyone wrote to their local police department and asked them to stop violating people’s rights they would listen too.

      • redleg500

        Perhaps the people the police shot would still be alive if they listened to what the cops said and put the gun down. It’s that simple.

      • Brad Bilger

        Maybe if people would stop jumping out of cars with guns drawn, screaming and fighting the police for a simple traffic stop, things would be a lot smoother. With as many police officer that have been killed in cold blood, I don’t blame them for being jumpy. No, I’m sorry, I don’t agree that police officers should just stand there and be shot. I want them to defend themselves against idiots that break the law. Against the idiots that are a danger to all. I don’t care what color they are. I don’t care what color the officer is. If someone is trying to kill a police officer, then they deserve what happens.

  • Tim

    This is what happens when public schools that are run by the gov teach our children. They make them all brainless machines incapable of independent thought. The cops must be the good guys. After all thats what we were taught in school !! No way they could be bullies and crooks and sell outs who carry a badge just so they can push people around !! No way that they could be the worst sort of human being looking to use their badge to live on the wrong side of the law all while bullying everyone else over the smallest of infractions.. No way that America could have the largest portion of its population incarcerated than any other free nation bc OUR people have rights !! Bullshit. The cops are the bad guys people. Just bc you dad or your brother or your mom is a cop doesn’t change shit. Your dad , your brother and your mom are all sorry pieces of shit. Blue lives only matter to the corrupt republic that they are sworn to protect. I say fuck them. You think you have choices ?? Who are you going to vote for in the Presidential election ? A rich priveleged bastard or a rich priveleged cunt ? Really think your vote counts ? 24 state have an electoral college that can and WILL vote any way it chooses regardless of the popular vote. Choice is an illusion. Why do you think they put on these cheesy ass debates ? To entertain your dumb ass and fool you into thinking you are part of something. YOU ARE NOT !!!!!! Wake the fuck up America.

    a bunch of babies!

    • Kristen Loomis

      Oh, does that mean you’ve brought blankets and juice boxes?

  • Deanna Nixon

    I don’t even know where to start on this conversation I’ve never done this chat thing before but I just can’t let this one go…I am a 25 yr. employee for Kroger I am also a survivor of a fallen Houston police officer killed 20 yrs ago at the age of 21 … If she were alive today she would be devastated because she died protecting ALL of you no matter race,religion,color,beliefs whatever…The Law Enforcement who are our people have also taken on the responsibility of protecting us from us what is going on ?…as for the Kroger employee she does not represent the majority of our associates This is our careers an we are here to provide a service to Everyone the best way we can … This is so out of control we “the people” can’t put out the flames if we keep fueling the fire… What is it gonna take !!!!

  • TruckinMack

    I want that shirt. Somebody post a link to where I can buy it.

  • eric strickland

    next time kroger is being robbed the police should just take their sweet time getting there

  • Brian Blanch

    I would sue the ignorant ass and the store. She doesn’t want her fired? Bullshit. Put her in the soup line

  • That person who acted like a punk was a Negro or a boot licking Progressive I bet!

  • Bill_S

    1. Fire the cashier.
    2. Reprimand (and maybe fire) the manager.
    3. Quit shopping at Krogers.
    4. Police – quit responding to calls at Krogers.

  • Judie Shaw

    Kroger, ( Ralph’s) has been our market for many years and many, many dollars. NO MORE!!! As a family member who have a wonderful person in our family serving his community, putting his life in danger everyday as he kisses his wife and baby “goodbye, see you tonight”, I can tell you I support ” Blue lives matter) BIG TIME…

  • Michael Prince

    Kroger as a business that serves the public, is considered a business of “public accommodation”. The Federal Civil Rights act of 1964, prohibits
    discrimination by privately owned places of public accommodation on the
    basis of race, color, religion or national origin, and mandate that in employment, consumer transactions, and political participation, people must be dealt with on an equal basis regardless of sex, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, mental handicap, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression/dysphoria, sex characteristics, religion, creed, or individual political opinions.

    That cashier and Kroger itself do not and did not have the right to refuse service to the woman because of her shirt or the police officer because of his job.

    I hate Black Lives Matter. I personally consider it a domestic terrorist organization. If I had a business, I would not be able to refuse service to someone who comes in wearing a blm shirt because I would be discriminating against that person.
