Police officers put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of both the communities they serve and its citizens. This is why a KFC outlet in Ohio decided to stick a sign on its front door welcoming uniformed police officers to eat for free. But, when the charitable sign went viral, so did the praise and backlash.
This KFC store in Gallipolis, Ohio, is committed to honoring police officers in their own way—with free chicken. That’s when they decided to print out a sign stating, “All uniformed police officers eat free everyday all day.”
But, after a photo of the sign was posted on the Ohio Going Blue Facebook page, not only was the offer met with gratitude, but also criticism.
Whilst most people responded with praise, there was a bit of debate about why the store didn’t include the military and veterans.
One netizen questioned the sign, “What about the other first responders?”
However, one former first responder wrote: “If the owner of this establishment chooses to provide free meals to anyone that is his choice. It is his profits, his business and his decision only. I respect what he has done. Rather than trying to find reasons to tear people down for what they are doing, find reasons and ways to help embellish upon their actions to make it so that everyone gets respect. Stop looking at the negative and build upon the positive. As a former first responder for over 30 years I never once looked for a free meal or handout. I respected those people who chose to give it to us but never once asked for it.”
