After two police officers were shot and killed in the line of duty in Kissimmee, Florida, the good citizens of the city were rightfully furious. However, the community would soon be left stunned after what was spotted at a local Chick-fil-A soon after the thug had gunned down the cops.
While the left would have you believe that Chick-fil-A and their policies are about as evil as they come, solely because they’re a Christian based company that honors God’s word and refuses to adhere to the left’s “politically correct” nonsense, liberals couldn’t be more wrong for attempting to portray the fast-food restaurant as the bad guys. Unsurprisingly, they’ve recently proven once again that they are a company to be applauded.
After the death of two officers in Florida, the Kissimmee Chick-fil-A restaurant decided to do something to honor the brave men who lost their lives. According to Orlando Sentinel, Sgt. Richard “Sam” Howard and Officer Matthew Baxter were ambushed while responding to a missing persons report and were killed.
“They are both wonderful men, family men. They are both very committed to the community,” Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell said this weekend. “They were the epitome of what you ask for in law enforcement officers.”
Nearly the entire town was left furious over the senseless loss of life, and the staff at the Kissimmee Chick-fil-A location were left absolutely heartbroken. For the past several years, the two devoted officers were regular customers at their store. As soon as the employees heard the horrible news, the restaurant decided to do something that would stun their patrons — honor the fallen officers by setting an empty table for them.
While the move itself might not seem stunning to anyone reading about it, imagine the impact it had on the community to have such a reminder this horrific tragedy greeting them as they dined. For any decent person, it had to be a humbling experience for sure.
“Our staff is heartbroken over this. We all knew Sergeant Howard and Officer Baxter as they would come see us on a regular basis since our doors opened back in 2013,” Chick-fil-A wrote in a Facebook post. “We lost family members and our prayers go out to those who need healing. Thank you, everyone, for your kind words. They will always be our Raving Fans!”
We will always have a seat for you. Our prayers are with your families. In blood and in blue 💙 Forever our Raving Fans.
Along “with their post was a picture which showed a table set up for the murdered heroes, with food, their picture, a candle, a flower, and a bible,” according to Blue Lives Matter.
The murderous thug, who was later identified as Everett Miller, was found with two firearms in his possession. He was arrested and has been charged with one count of murder for killing Baxter, but the charges haven’t been announced for Howard’s death. However, he also faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest.
Chick-fil-A has proven again that what is done inside its restaurant is always done with care. Their intent isn’t to be “evil” or politically incorrect; their intent is to spread God’s word. It’s a shame that our nation has devolved to a point where God’s word and Christian values are an “offensive” thing to display because, clearly, God’s word is the one thing our country needs desperately.
