Today I was informed of a military servicemen who was refused service when he entered a local BP station in uniform. The owner and emloyees are all of middle east descent. I have no knowledge of anyones religious affiliation. I stopped at the BP after work and asked the fellow behind the counter if it was true. He stated that it was "two other employees". A rally by a local bike gang has been planned to be held in front of the store. Every business in the county has received an email about the story. Hardee County Florida is a sparcely populated area with phosphate, cattle, and oranges as its main industries. That kind of behavior doesnt fly in these here parts.
