Another story of another cop getting insulted by a store employee created yet another internet outrage. This time, however, it is a little different, as it appears the police manufactured the entire ordeal — and were caught. A police department’s Facebook post went viral last year with Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday’s rant about one of his officers receiving a coffee with “f**king pig” inscribed on it. That expletive is now the subject of embarrassment and controversy for the department who is attempting to write it off as a joke.
Before continuing with the rest of the story it is important to point out that had anyone else besides a member of the protected class like police officers gotten a “f**k you” written on their cup, we would not have heard about it at all. Only when it allegedly happens to cops does the nation collectively lose its mind.
