Joy-Ann Reid did not pull any punches as a police officer made a video complaining at a fast-food window. Reid gave the proper perspective.
Police Officer looking for sympathy, what about ...
A viral video shows a cop breaking down in tears, after a long wait at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Georgia made her “too nervous” to accept her breakfast order. The officer named Stacey, who identified herself as a 15-year veteran of the force, filmed herself becoming emotional after she says she experienced delays in picking up a mobile order for a McMuffin, hashbrowns and coffee at a McDonald’s in Richmond Hill, just outside Savannah.
“I hadn’t eaten in a while so I was kind of hungry,” said the teary-eyed cop in the video circulated on Twitter. “So I’m still waiting and I’m still waiting.” After a lengthy wait at the window, Stacey says, she was told to “pull up” because her food still wasn’t ready. One of the employees then came out — but with only her coffee.
“I said, ‘Don’t bother with the food because right now I’m too nervous to take it,’” the cop said. “It doesn’t matter how many hours I’ve been up. It doesn’t matter what I’ve done for anyone. Right now I’m too nervous to take a meal from McDonald’s because I can’t see it being made.”
Stacey then called on people to give cops a “break” as law enforcement faces scrutiny across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody. “I don’t know what’s going on with people nowadays, but please, just give us a break. Please just give us a break,” she said. “I don’t know how much more I can take.” The video has racked up more than 3 million views on Twitter, with some users expressing outrage over her treatment.
