After Cop Finds Nasty Three-Letter Word Scrawled on His To-Go Order, Taco Bell Levels Some Swift Justice
After a Kansas police officer and his fiancee picked up their to-go order from a Taco Bell in Newton on Saturday night, the couple experienced quite a shock.

The word “PIG” was penned in what appears to be black marker on at least two of their items:



The couple told KAKE-TV they called and spoke to the manager on duty, who said they could bring back the five soft tacos and get new ones. When the couple told the manager they couldn’t return since they were both working, she said she would arrange to get their money refunded and food remade.

But on Sunday Taco Bell told KAKE they’ve done one better and fired the employee who left the nasty notes.

“We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” Jeff Graves, senior director of operations for Taco Bell, told the station. “Our company, Taco Bell, has always been pro-law enforcement, military. We’ve always supported the police in our community. Many of our restaurants give police discounts when they come in and eat.”

Graves added that he’s been in touch with the couple.

“We’ve of course apologized to him, all the Newton Police officers and, in fact, everyone in the community,” he added to KAKE. “In fact, I’ve even met with the lieutenant with the Newton Police Department this morning, and we’re even going to plan a community event working with the Newton Police officers within the next week just to show our support for the officers and the community.”

Did the original order have bacon in it? I'm sure there is a perfectly reasonable explanation. ;)

Taco Bell took the right course of action by blowing out whoever wrote that. Could have been a blessing in disguise; you never know what may have been added to those tacos.

Why I NEVER eat out. I am so mortally sick of sandwiches and brown bag dinners, but I refuse to eat out, especially in uniform. Only exception is two breakfast joints, family owned and operated.

Less salt, less fat around my belly, and most importantly of all no broken glass or spit.

I am glad that turd got fired. If I handed a citizen a note calling him an a-hole I would get fired also.

I've always thought eating out in uniform was risky.

Of courses eating at Taco Bell is always risky.

It is very rare that I eat out at work. I have never been comfortable with it. After Lakewood less so and Las Vegas, never again other than the most extreme of circumstances.

Grab and go if at all.
