Police Kicked Out Of Belleville Denny’s For Being Armed
January 3, 2013 6:40 AM

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) – Belleville police chief Bill Clay is ordering his officers to get their pancakes from anywhere but Denny’s, calling the restaurant “political stupidness.”

The new orders come after a New Year’s Day clash between five detectives and one Denny’s manager.

The department says the detectives were out of uniform but wearing their badges, when manager David Rice asked them to either leave or put their guns in their vehicle.

Rice, told the detectives that one of their weapons, specifically a female detective’s gun, was making another diner feel uncomfortable.

As the officers were leaving, without their food, General Manager Michael Van walked up and corrected the manager and said it was fine for them to stay, but the officers said it would be too awkward and they left.

Denny’s corporate office has released an apology saying, “Denny’s policy permits law enforcement officials to carry their firearms in the restaurant and we regret any misunderstanding.”

An employee at the Belleville Denny’s didn’t want to talk about the confrontation to KMOX, but some Denny’s customers said the presence of police and their guns was not an issue.


911 Operator: St. Claire County 911. What's your emergency?

Voice on Phone: This is Denny's out on 159. We're being held up. There's a robbery in progress.

911 Operator: Police are on their way. They want to know if they should bring their guns? :lol:


You can't make this stuff up. :lol:

If I would have been there, I would have walked over to the uneasy person and escorted them out of the building for their own safety. Uneasy would have felt safer there.

Hopefully David Rice is no longer in a position at Denny's that requires him to think.

I am surprised the complaining diner was brave enough to leave their house.

Reading the article makes one wonder if it was actually a customer or that Rice idiot. Too bad I wouldn't have been there. I'd have told them to take a chill pill a**hole.

In the Burg, there's a new restaurant on Front St. that I patronize in and out of uniform. I've been in there all hours of the day and night and never had a problem with anyone. I've been in there dressed like the detectives with only a badge on my belt, cuffs and firearm, in civilian clothes and no one has ever said anything. One time I even had a woman grab my hand pull me down kiss me hug me and thanked me for doing a job others would not do. It makes you wonder, why can't more people be like her, having a devote respect for the law.

How does thanking you reflect her feeling of the law? Maybe she was a pickpocket? :)

But seriously, I think attitudes changes when the police became enforcers of the law, regardless of the wisdom of that law.

The police are too involved in people's lives and are viewed as bullies who would trample our rights for an arrest.

In an era where it is impossible to comply daily with the tens of thousands of laws and one arrest can destroy your chances at good employment for life, I question why anyone would want any contact with LE.

It was the tone of her voice and what she said that left anyone at her table know her feelings for LE. Besides I got a close up view of some nice Cleavage.
I've worked with many LE Depts. and have never witnessed malpractice from any of the officers involved in our arrest.

You asked why more people don't love cops.

Because you have never seen cops do anything wrong won't help you understand that most people's interaction with cops is during traffic stops, where the motorist didn't harm anyone, but made a technical violation - no turn signal, not stopping a full 2 seconds at an intersection with no other cars.

No one was harmed, yet they are ticketed, delayed, possibly harassed, insurance increased.

This is what most people see of cops. They don't like it.

I'm sure many will disagree and say people shouldn't do things that are against the law, but the law is for the protection of property, not regulation of behavior. When it turns to regulation of behavior, you necessarily create a segment of the population that will always be in violation of the law just by natural human actions.

Just like Newspolice thinks it is wrong for one person in DC to go to jail for what another is permitted to do, laws that regulate behavior instead of rights create criminals for no reason.

And if you don't like getting stopped for those things, then don't break those laws. Then you won't have anything to b!tch about.

I knew I wouldn't have to wait for a real time example of why people don't respect police any longer.

I don't necessarily agree with all the above, but we are on common ground:) Those remarks go to both political parties and their offspring, I am not political, just sensical. Maybe uneasy was wanted for outstanding honor awards or in plain language, warrants? I have always had good food at Dennys in the SOUTH. I do not deal with them in the NORTH, they seem so, lets say bizarre at times I guess. Case and point the article I commented on, extremes and lacking common sense:
Who ever asked the detectives to leave should also be asked to LEAVE permanently. Everyday folks seems great, it is the people who handle power positions thant can't handle them that worry me:)
I love em all in life... The odd and precarious:)
