    After a Kansas police officer and his fiancee picked up their to-go order from a Taco Bell in Newton on Saturday night, the couple experienced quite a shock.

    The word “PIG” was penned in what appears to be black marker on at least two of their items:

    The couple told KAKE-TV they called and spoke to the manager on duty, who said they could bring back the five soft tacos and get new ones. When the couple told the manager they couldn’t return since they were both working, she said she would arrange to get their money refunded and food remade.

    But on Sunday Taco Bell told KAKE they’ve done one better and fired the employee who left the nasty notes.

    “We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” Jeff Graves, senior director of operations for Taco Bell, told the station. “Our company, Taco Bell, has always been pro-law enforcement, military. We’ve always supported the police in our community. Many of our restaurants give police discounts when they come in and eat.”

    Graves added that he’s been in touch with the couple.

    “We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community,” he added to KAKE. “In fact, I’ve even met with the lieutenant with the Newton Police Department this morning, and we’re even going to plan a community event working with the Newton Police officers within the next week just to show our support for the officers and the community.”

    I'm glad Taco Bell fired the employee and that they are doing some community stuff to help foster good relationships.

    However, they just gave my daughter a "fresco" burrito....with cheese and sour cream. She ordered fresco because she is very allergic to dairy. So I'm a little annoyed with them right now! She didn't know about this until she was home (20 minutes away). Fortunately, she called the store and they were willing to remake her food or give her free food sometime this week but she told them that she doesn't need that but instead just wants to make sure that the people preparing the food know what "fresco" means to Taco Bell!! Of course this is just one local store - just as that was one local store. It's not the stance or practice of the whole company.

    If I was that cop - I would have replied "Thank you! - For realizing, that I have Pride - Integrity - & Guts!
    Then I would have asked that manager to have that employee ride with me on a shift.

    But that's me......

    They should've fired the employee. This kind of behavior is simply unacceptable.

    "Fresco means substituting cheese, dairy-based sauces, reduced-fat sour cream and guacamole for freshly-prepared pico de gallo."

    Exactly! She can have the pico de gallo but not the dairy based stuff! The manager was really nice about it and thanked her for calling and said that he'd speak to the staff immediately. :)

    Way to go Taco Bell. Now if more police officers would also learn how to talk to people in all communities in a civil manner, this type of rhetoric may become less common.

    Y'all have trained me well. But I see you are still struggling with that whole reading thing. I didn't blame the victim for anything. In fact I didn't even mention the victim.

    Guys don't let Zaac turn this into another cop hating thread. Let him go and ignore him. He has no truth and only serves to stir up hate. Let it go.
