VIDEO: Investigation Shows Officers Not Serenaded with “F___ the Police” by Staff at NC Restaurant

The Raleigh Police Department said Wednesday that no employees sang “F the Police” following allegations that officers were disrespected while eating at a Raleigh restaurant last week.

The allegations surfaced after a member of the Raleigh Police Protective Association (RPPA) took to the group’s Facebook account to express concern over an incident last Friday at the Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q. The post read:

“Thank you Smithfield’s Chicken & Barbeque Jones Sausage location for the class and professionalism as you sang “F the Police” as my brothers at Raleigh Police Department attempted to eat at your restaurant. The manager sang along as well. Do you really feel that was appropriate?” However, Raleigh’s police chief released a statement Wednesday saying despite reports, the two officers only witnessed one employee make eye contact with them and mouth the words “F… the Police.”

During a press conference Wednesday morning, lawyers for the franchise owner said the employee is no longer with the company. Officials said the employee decided to quit once attorneys began their investigation.

The owner of the restaurant said he really wants to put out the message that he does not condone disrespect of police. He is displaying his appreciation for police with this marquee message: SCNBLUE (Smithfield’s Chicken and Blue).
