    What a bad, bad move for that resturant. I bet we hear the apology and retraction before long.

    Around here, resturants love it when uniformed officers come into the resturant. Most of them get some sort of discount, free coffee, dessert etc. just as a thank you for their service.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Their Capt did the right thing, I just hope all non police officers that have CHL permit also boycott that Denny's Restaurant.

    Whadaya want to bet that manager is on their way out?

    When I worked in the restaurant business, Police Officers were encouraged to eat with us.
    We liked having armed presence inside the building!

    .
    What a difference in times from 1960's to now!

    Manager deserve everything that's about to happens to him!

    Too bad his Employees might have to suffer the same fate.
    Probably be a good time to seek a safer employement environment!

    There is not much I can ad to this other than I think the manager is not the brightest bulb in the socket.

    Probably, some may be corporate stores.

    Regardless, a call from Corporate to the Owner about the adverse publicity will probably ensue.

    It would be great if the first words the Police Officer that responses to a robbery call at that Denny's was to ask the Manager what did the robber say to you when you told him he had to take his weapon out to his car or leave the restaurant.

    UPDATE:
    BELLEVILLE: Belleville police chief lifts ban on officers eating at Denny's, says he harbors no grudges | Metro-east news | News Democrat

    Seems this Denny's has reached out to the Belleville PD and apologized for the actions of the manager. No word on if the manager is still employed or not.

    And quickly, as it should have. Guess the (former?) manager didn't understand that suits and dress are the uniforms of detectives.

    Yeah,that manager isn't the sharpest spoon in the knife drawer.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Denny's Corp. spokeswoman Liz DiTrapano said Wednesday, "Denny's policy permits law enforcement officials to carry their firearms in the restaurant, and we regret any misunderstanding."
    But will they allow us commoner’s to carry also?

    At this time, Joe Citizen is NOT permitted to carry in the People's Republic of Illinois.
