Belleville — Police Chief William Clay has banned all on-duty police officers from eating at Denny´s Restaurant on South Illinois Street after a detective was asked to remove her gun or leave the restaurant on New Year´s Day. "All sworn (uniformed/non-uniformed) officers have been prohibited from entering Denny´s Restaurant at 1130 South Illinois for any meal or coffee breaks while on duty," Clay said in a released statement. "Additionally, no officers may enter the restaurant off-duty if in uniform." Calls for service by Denny´s will continue to receive the appropriate law enforcement

Comments:
On the radio it was stated that all the officers badges were in plain sight.

FTA: "A spokeswoman for Denny´s Corp. Liz DiTrapano said in response to a concern raised by a guest about a customer with a firearm, the manager approached the individual and communicated that Denny´s policy does not permit firearms in the restaurant."

Good luck with that, fools. See also Luby´s massacre.

Now that Denny´s has declared itself gun-free, even by on-duty police, it´s patrons are targets for every armed thug and felon.

I will never enter a Denny´s again

What kind of idiot is concerned that a uniformed police officer on break has a gun? Of course, the concerned customer wants to be anonymous.

Liberalism really is a mental disorder.

3, you fell pray to the headlines - and obviously did not read the story. The paper is trying to make Denny´s, a conservative coropation, look bad. The main manager came up and corrected the idiotic asst manager who tried to run the cops off. Then the chief threw an over the top tantrum.

Read people, THEN spout off. You won´t look so stupid that way.

#6, Passion, I believe you are the one who misread the article and spouted stupid.
Clearly, the main manager tried to de-escalate the situation by offering to allow the police detectives to stay--but I see nothing in the article where that main manager said his subordinate was mistaken or apologized.
Maybe you need corrective reading skills

"According to police, Rice stated he had a complaint from another customer about the weapon..."

It would be interesting to know the political affiliation of the anonymous complainer, who doesn´t seem to have been thinking very clearly. If the sight of an armed person caused such alarm, requesting management to eject the individual would not seem like the smartest step to take - unless the person who complained knew perfectly well that these were police officers and thus did not fear provoking the situation. This sounds like either a very stupid or a very political person.

The take home lesson, which is not necessarily obvious, is how quickly isolated incidents like this can become BIG DEAL NEWS, thanks to instantaneous worldwide communication networks. One minute it´s business as usual - and the next minute, WHOOSH! it´s all over the country and even the world. Our biological nervous systems are not adequately equipped to deal with such input. Perspective and proportion are lacking or lost altogether. It seems we are all rubber-neckers and voyeurs now, whether we want to be or not.

This is really funny. Illinois has declared war on the Second Amendment, and we´re supposed to sympathize with the police-state agents who implement these policies.

Denny´s´ owners will not be happy that all Belleville police are boycotting Denny´s. Someone is going to be fired, maybe more than one. Manager should have offered to pay for meals and beg them to stay. Of course they are not going to leave their protection out in the car for any reason.

Not sure what to conclude here. The corporation´s ad this past summer was very pro-conservative and clearly supported "the right to bear arms." But Denny´s was also one of those that caved to jesse jackson during his no-minorities-in-the-boardroom campaign back in the nineties. I seem to recall that the settlement included a share of the profits for one of his sons.

(Mis)Manager David Rice (any relation to that idiot, Susan?) has earned himself a sacking, methinks.

His PC response to an anonymous complainant (with a hidden motive I´d wager) is going to cost Denny´s a bundle in bad PR.

Seeing frequently how businesses are harmed by fools like David Rice who represent them to the public makes me wonder why anyone wants to risk being in business these days.

The Philistines appear to be prevailing, folks.

Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - A mob lynched a Muslim on Friday after he fell off a crowded lorry driving thousands of frightened civilians out of the strife-torn capital of the Central African Republic. A large convoy of lorries and taxis packed with Muslims fleeing Christian vigilantes headed north from Bangui under a slew of insults from angry residents, locals said. The mob set on the victim after he fell off one of the lorries and hacked to pieces his body, which still lay by the side of the road by late morning, an AFP photographer saw.

The 41 employees of Extreme Dodge in Jackson, Mich., are very familiar with trade-ins, but this year they’re learning about trade-offs as they come face to face with the new realities of health care. A few workers say they’re getting a great deal, but most have a severe case of sticker shock. “I feel like I’ve been taken to the cleaners,” said Neal Campbell, a salesman. The news was presented at the company’s annual benefits meeting earlier this month, when employees were told that the health insurance plan that the auto dealership had provided its workers was canceled because it doesn’t comply

CAIRO -- Snow coated domes and minarets Friday as a record Middle East storm compounded the suffering of Syrian refugees, sent the Israeli army scrambling to dig out stranded motorists and gave Egyptians a rare glimpse of snow in their capital. Nearly three feet of snow closed roads in and out of Jerusalem, which is set in high hills, and thousands in and around the city were left without power. Israeli soldiers and police rescued hundreds trapped in their cars by snow and ice. In the West Bank, the branches of olive trees groaned under the weight of snow. In

Drivers in St. Charles County were asked to take part in a government survey that involved the odd request of blood and saliva samples. One driver who emailed News 4 said a deputy and others dressed in safety vests directed drivers to take part and answer questions about alcohol and driving. The study is being conducted by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and is supposed to be voluntary. Constitutional Law attorney Bob Herman said the study does raise some red flags. “At the point at which a uniformed officer asserts his authority and makes you drive your car off the road or

When Dayna Morales, a restaurant server in New Jersey and former U.S. Marine, claimed a family wrote her a hateful note on a receipt, outrage ensued. "I´m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life," read the note. Morales, who is gay, posted a photo of the receipt on Facebook. Morales went on news programs and showed off the receipt with the message. But now, the alleged customers have come forward saying they left no note and did leave the waitress a tip.

"First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about, so let´s start with that," Christie told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos. "But secondly, all these issues have been vetted and if I ever run for anything again, they´ll be vetted again." Christie was responding to comments from Ted

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
