When it comes to fast food, it doesn’t get much better than Chick-Fil-A. Not only do they serve up great food but they do it the right way. They take care of their employees. They support local law enforcement. They don’t alienate anyone. They are closed on Sundays. They just seem like a classy organization.
On Sunday morning, tragedy struck Denver, Colorado after a gunman opened fire on police officers and killed one of them while injuring four others.
From Fox News:
The rifle-toting man who gunned down a Colorado deputy in a New Year’s Eve “ambush-style” attack had ranted about the sheriff and a local police officer in recent online posts discovered after the assault.
Matthew Riehl, 37, fired more than 100 rounds as he was holed up in a bedroom in his apartment in Highlands Ranch, before he too was found dead at the scene. The Douglas County Sheriff’s office identified Riehl as the gunman Sunday evening.
Three other deputies, a police officer and two civilians were also wounded. The deputies and the officer had gone to the apartment around 5:15 a.m. in response to a disturbance, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said. They had been to the apartment about an hour earlier.
Then, Chick-Fil-A stepped in and did what they do best.
A Colorado Chick-Fil-A made a rare move of opening on Sunday to feed a group of first responders after a deadly shooting took place in Highlands Ranch Sunday morning.
“With heavy hearts and lots of community support three Douglas County, Jefferson County, and otherCounty officers are helping with food 400 sandwiches for first responders. Our prayers are with all that serve and their family’s,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook.
Gotta love that.
Chick-Fil-A does this kind of thing all the time and they have always made it clear they support local law enforcement.
The Chick-fil-A on Wards Road will be offering free meals to law enforcement officers on duty Christmas Eve.
Chick-fil-a is partnering with Larry’s Tire & Auto and this is the third year they have done something like this.
The left doesn’t like Chick-Fil-A very much and you have to imagine that the Christian aspect and the firm support for law enforcement is a big reason for that.
Some members of the Denver City Council want to punish Chick-fil-A for its owner’s Christian beliefs about marriage. They are contemplating blocking the very popular chicken sandwich joint from setting up shop in the Denver Airport.
Besides the owner’s views on same-sex marriage, some members of the Council raised concerns about the “religion-influenced operation, which includes keeping all franchises closed on Sunday,” according to the Denver Post.
Concerned Council members invoke laws against discrimination; apparently unaware that one of the long-standing categories of protection is religion
Religious discrimination is alive and well in Denver apparently.
Nice to see Chick-Fil-A standing up for law enforcement whenever they get a chance.
Really a shame that the liberal left has tried so hard to demonize them.
