    I read about this earlier,had to read it twice,unbelievable. I have not been to Denny's in years,most in our area are trashy. Now I have a better reason to stay away.

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Let's see:
    Police: 911, what's your emergency?
    Denny's: This is the Belleville Denny's manager. There's someone in the restaurant robbing us.
    Police: Did you tell him to take his gun outside or leave?
    Denny's: Uh-no I didn't. Can you send someone quickly?
    Police: There are two plainclothes detectives outside the restaurant right now but they're not allowed in armed-remember?
    Denny's: I'm sorry about that. They can come in.
    Police: You hurt their feelings so they're not. Uniformed officers will be there in 35 minutes. Goodbye.

    When I was a LEO I refrained from eating in those places whenever possible. Seemed like I would place my order then look up to see a cook I had either had trouble with during an arrest or had actually put in prison. I didn't want them near my food for obvious reasons. Diners like that worked a good many work release inmates as cooks.
    On a side note my department, like many others in our area, had regulations against plain clothes officers exposing their sidearms in public. This was the policy of my department prior to my retirement in 1999. It's really not a bad policy.

    this is why I don't go to restaurants in uniform.

    Frankly,I don't think this happened because it was in IL.
    As shown by the civil rights law suit of a few years ago,the people Denny's hires as managers are often really STUPID.

    Denny's is still in business? The ones in my immediate area closed their doors years ago, could not compete with IHOP or the Southern Kitchen, Denny's poor service was also a factor.

    I think we are putting a dim light on our LEO's even tho they may have been asked to leave Dennys the majority of those Officers if not 100% of them will respond to any crime in progress just like they would at any other establishment.They may not like it,but they will not allow it to hinder their professionalism.

    Probably somewhat slower than it once was.

    And whatever else can be said, effective response is going to be far slower than already having an armed officer inside. A "gun-free zone" by any other name will "smell" just as "sweet." (Read: it'll be less-protected.)

    What happened is somewhat a tad humorous...... No matter what you think of Denny's what happened is not corporate policy. All it was an inept manager trying to appease the customer that complained.

    Yeah, quite so. We often have a manager object to a mom breastfeeding her baby, and then after a storm of protest, the owners of the location will apologise.

    As well, there are millions in potential patents possible for those with a tool shed, ideas, or creative loved ones to tell.. (and gumption) It's an untapped technology.

    I think I'd be more concerned with appeasing someone with a gun!

    If you're concerned about appeasing someone because they have a gun, then I suggest that the presence of that gun is inappropriate*.

    *certain hypotheticals excepted. If your hypothetical counter results in a "er, yeah, of course" comeback, then it's obviously excepted.
