Chipotle Employees Greet Officers With ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ – Cops Leave Without Ordering

If there is a robbery there, see how fast the cops respond while the asshole employees are standing with their hand up hoping they don't get shot.......

The NY Post reports:Chipotle Mexican Grill is apologizing to a crew of NYPD cops who were served up an anti-police insult in Brooklyn during a recent trip to the fast-food eatery.Nine of New York’s Finest walked into the Montague Street restaurant in Downtown Brooklyn around 6:15 p.m. on Dec. 16 and were greeted by a Chipotle employee who raised his hands up, a gesture that has become a symbol of anti-police sentiment across the country.The burrito shop is close to the 84th Precinct, where slain Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu worked before they were gunned down on Dec. 20.“We work very hard to ensure that every customer in our restaurants feels welcome and is treated with respect. Clearly, the actions of this crew member undermined that effort,” co-CEOs Steve Ells and Monty Moran said in a statement Monday.One of the cop’s former colleagues supposedly penned a letter suggesting that several employees made the “Hands up, Don’t Shoot,” gesture. The officer also demanded an apology from the company.The Chipotle employee made the “Hands up, don’t shoot” anti-cop gesture made famous by the protesters in Ferguson.Photo: Getty ImagesBut surveillance video taken at the Mexican restaurant shows that, “this appears to have been a spontaneous, unplanned action taken by an individual crew member,” the CEOs said.“Our investigation also shows that the officers were not refused service, but instead chose to leave after encountering this gesture and while still waiting in line,” they added.Ells and Moran say they have taken “appropriate actions” against the offending employee, but would not get into specifics.They’ve also apologized to the offended officers.“We greatly respect the service they provide and welcome them into our restaurants,” the pair concluded.Since the incident, some critics have taken to social media to call for a boycott of the Montague Street location.
