Zachary Randolph, an 18 year old employee at Great American Cookies in Katy, Texas, paid for a dessert for a police officer in line at his register, thanking him for his service. A man behind the officer then asked if Randolph was going to buy his order as well. When the employee said he only bought the officer an item because of his badge, the other customer threatened him with violence and attempted to come behind the counter.
Randolph’s mother reported on her Facebook page that her son was suspended for a week by his manager because the man complained. Chris Salcedo asked “Where does the hatred and distrust for the cops come from?” on “The Chris Salcedo Show” today.
He suggested that Democrats have fomented a “complete lack of respect” for officers, citing a painting that depicts the police as pigs hanging in the Capitol, brought in by Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) He attributed this to a greater devotion to divisiveness as demonstrated by Tom Perez , the head of the Democratic National Committee.
He was asked to tone down his vulgar, inflammatory rhetoric by Republican National Committee chair Ronna Romney McDaniel on this Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” but Perez did not. Chris believes such an attitude creates the climate in which Randolph suffered for his good deed.
