Belleville, Illinois cops booted from Denny's for having their service weapons on them



The Belleville police chief banned his officers from the eatery while on duty after several detectives were told they couldn’t carry their guns in the restaurant, but Denny’s says the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding.
The incident began about 10 a.m. Tuesday when five Belleville detectives went into the Denny’s at 1130 South Illinois Street, ordered food and began to eat. The detectives had badges on their belts or on chains around their necks, but they weren’t in uniform.
Belleville Capt. Donald Sax said restaurant manager David Rice then approached and told one of the detectives that a diner had complained about seeing one of the detectives carrying a gun.
Even though the detective told Rice all at the table were police officers, Rice insisted the detectives take their guns back out to their cars, Sax said.
According to Sax, Rice then told the officers that it is company policy to allow only uniformed officers to carry their guns into a restaurant and that a sign on the door stated that policy.
The officers all got up to leave, refusing to pay for their meal. As they were leaving, Sax said a Denny’s general manager, Michael Van, approached the group. He told them Rice was wrong and it was fine for them to stay and to keep their guns.
The detectives, whom Sax described as “embarrassed” by the incident, decided to leave anyway. Sax said the detectives made a point to check the door on their way out.
“There was no sign on the door (regarding firearms),” Sax said. “They all looked for it.”
Belleville Police Chief William Clay later issued an order to his troops, banning them from eating at that Denny’s when they are on duty or when they’re off duty and still in uniform. Off-duty and out of uniform, officers can eat where they want.
Belleville police also issued a press release, naming the managers and pinning the incident on “political stupidness.”
“This was an insult, a slap in the face to those detectives and to all of the men and women who proudly wear the uniform or badge and serve in law enforcement,” Clay said in the press release.
Of course, officers will still show up if Denny’s calls for some kind of emergency, police said.
The Denny’s managers, Rice and Van, were not available for comment. Corporate spokesperson Liz DiTrapano called the situation “a misunderstanding” and said there is no ban on armed officers.
“Obviously, all law enforcement officers are permitted to carry their firearms in our restaurants,” she said.
Belleville police said they would be following up with Denny’s management about the restaurant’s policies.
At the Belleville restaurant on Wednesday, diners’ views on the incident varied.
John Carrigan, 72, of rural Washington County, Ill., said he understood the concern some diners at Denny’s might have had. “I’d have been scared to see a woman walk in with a gun nowadays with all the shootings,” he said.
But Mike Wieland, 51, of Bluford, Ill., sided with the officers. “The police should be able to carry their weapons everywhere they go,” Wieland said.

If the diner had a problem with the gun, then the DINER should have left the restaurant. The Manager shouldn't have gotten involved at all.

Personally, Denny's has fucked up so much with Cops (cf. secret service agents not served due to being black) - I wonder why any of them eat there, ever.

URGENT ALERT – BAN ON GUN RANGES AND BAN ON ALL SEMIAUTOMATIC FIREARMS ON THE MOVE IN THE ILLINOIS SENATE

YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

A pair of nightmare bills is on the move at this moment in the Illinois Senate.

These two bills would:

1. Run all gun ranges out of business by imposing heavy fees, imposing special staffing requirements, warrantless searches of ranges and customers, unlimited unannounced “inspections.”

2. Ban all semi-automatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns as well as pump action shotguns.

Here are direct links to the two bills:

http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=09700HB0815sam001&GA=97&SessionId=84&DocTypeId=HB&LegID=56601&DocNum=0815&GAID=11&Session=

and

http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=09700HB1263sam005&GA=97&SessionId=84&DocTypeId=HB&LegID=57242&DocNum=1263&GAID=11&Session=

EITHER OF THESE TWO BILLS WOULD END YOUR GUN RIGHTS ENTIRELY

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR GUN RIGHTS.

1. Follow the instructions below and contact your Illinois State Senator. Politely tell your senator that you are a law-abiding gun owner and you want them to vote AGAINST HB815 and HB1263. CALL NOW!

2. Pass this information on to your gun owning friends and family, tell them to call as well.

3. Post this alert to all Internet blogs and bulletin boards to which you belong.

The worst of the two bills, HB815 is being sponsored and pushed by anti-gun Senator Dan Kotowski. Go to his link: http://www.ilga.gov/senate/senator.asp?GA=97&MemberID=1724 Call him at the numbers listed and tell him that you do not appreciate him trying to shut down gun ranges and taking your guns away from you. He needs to hear from you!

I personally would love to see heavily armed police officers at Denny's every time I go there, in uniform or not.

I doubt the SS agents were "denied" service. What probably happened was that they were asked to pay first, and they got uppity about it and left. Due to the practice of groups of blacks coming into Denny's and then all running out on the check together for years, some Denny's were quite sensibly asking groups of black diners to pay before being served. Naturally Denny's got their asses sued off for it, so blacks are once again free to dine and dash at Denny's all they please. If the SS agents had a problem with that they should work with their brothers and sisters in the black community to educate blacks to actually obey the law, instead of attacking Denny's for its completely legitimate concerns about chronic black criminality and irresponsibility.

I am being worn out be the democrats around here. I'm just tired of fighting them. These useless cunts and their fear of firearms have me sick. There are 80 million of us (firearms owners) and they treat us like we stole from them. This congress and president are the end of the USA. I was born in a free country and the liberal fools have pissed it away. They will destroy it so badly that it will never come back.

when I ran a Wags at 79th and Cicero you could have sworn it was a police substation. More guns at the counter than in the back. And yes i had a .45 in the back.

While some dont like cops,and there are times I didnt either,it took me walking in their shoes to a degree to appreciate the SHIT they have to put up with. Thats why they paid very little,their family ate free,and each time I needed the police I got half the district there. Fuck dennys.

Excellent comment. I love cops, and I know the unbelievable bullshit they have to through. I think it's harder on them now than it ever was, because the crooks are worse and more violent, while at the same time police officers are under the PC microscope and second judgement as never before. They exist at the intersection between the Liberal bullshit fantasies of the "New America" and the reality of the streets and it's a very hard place to be, on top of everything else that comes with the job. Props to all the officers out there, society would collapse in about 30 seconds if it weren't for you guys. You are heroes.

LOL!

The Dems fucked themselves...

Read the language:

'government may ban entirely "dangerous and unusual weapons"'

Since when are semi autos legally unusual firearms? A semiauto .22 LR is less dangerous then a 308 bolt action sniper rifle.

So the bill MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE AND CAN BE DEFEATED IN COURT

"10 WHEREAS, in that same decision, the United States Supreme
11 Court also found that the individual right to possess and use a
12 firearm was not unlimited, that the government has the ability
13 to regulate the possession and use of firearms, and that this
14 right "does not protect those weapons not typically possessed
15 by law abiding citizens for lawful purposes", "

NIGGER PLEASE!

""does not protect those weapons not typically possessed by law abiding citizens for lawful purposes""

Semi autos are common and standard and Dems can go fuck themselves!

Just look at gun production records for proof.

FUCK IL!!

You know, I'm truely sorry about the shootings, it's a bad time right now with everything going on. But it's also a shame how it gets blamed on the Guns, I guess a gun has a mind of it's own, just like a person, instead of spouting off at the mouth, the Gun fires its trigger?? What if it had been been a school bus that rolled over and they got killed?? Would the Bastard's be preaching about needing Seat Belt's on school buses??? Go out and get a DUI, how gets charged for that?? A car doen't drive drunk, does it?? To the point, it's the unstabble person that's behind the trigger, or steering wheel, etc...
