Cops offended as restaurant staff sings “F**k that police” by N.W.A.

A police union’s Facebook post claiming officers were treated disrespectfully at a North Carolina BBQ joint has gone viral.
The Raleigh Police Protective Association on Friday accused workers at a Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q in Garner of singing N.W.A.’s song “F*ck Tha Police” to the officers as they were having a meal, WTVD reports.
The post sparked comments online calling for a boycott of the restaurant.
“THANK YOU Smithfields Chicken & Barbeque Jones Sausage location for the class and professionalism as you sang “F- the police” as my brothers at Raleigh Police Department attempted to eat at your restaurant,” the union’s Facebook post union president Matthew Cooper wrote Friday on Facebook. “The manager sang along as well. Do you really feel that was appropriate?”
A police officer’s post prompted the union’s post, according to the station.
The Raleigh News & Observer reported Saturday that Cooper said in an interview that there were a couple of officers who were sung to, though he would not give the exact number.
He said the police association spoke to the owner of the restaurant, David Harris, and accepted his apology.
Harris promised on Facebook a “thorough investigation and terminate anyone employed that doesn’t share our RESPECT of ALL law enforcement.”
The Raleigh Police Department said late Saturday that it was working with the restaurant to “resolve the issue.”
“The Raleigh Police Department appreciates the long term and strong relationship it continues to have with Smithfield’s,” it said.
