The owner of Rocky’s Road Brew food truck in Detroit is making clear that she will not be serving any Detroit Police Department (DPD) officers.

WXYZ reports that Rocky’s Road Brew has a sign hanging down that says, “We reserve the right to refuse service to cops.” The anti-police policy has been so strictly enforced that “a rescue driver from a humane society was asked to leave because he ‘looked’ like law enforcement.”

The humane society employee began using social media posts to tell everyone that Rocky’s Road Brew will not serve cops. As the posts went viral, the food truck owner used a Facebook post to stand by her decision to deny service to law enforcement:

[The Humane Society driver’s]  posts went viral and I decided to post why I do not serve law enforcement agents. Since then All Lives Matter, “Patriots,” MAGA, & “Christians” have been slandering, threatening, and harassing the business via Facebook. These people, their code switching, their hate, their ignorance shows me I’m on the right path. These people are the threat to freedom, equality, & peace in America. As a brown queer person in America, I am well aware that my very being is a threat to Amerikkka and its lineage of genocide, fragility, and hate. My very existence is my resistance and just like my ancestors, I am resilient. So despite the hate and slander, I am well. I wanted to thank everyone for the emotional labor (these creeps cannot be reasoned with) and support.

She said, “On this corner, I encounter all types and the only type that has ever purposely intimidated me is DPD. The majority of my neighbors, customers, and myself do not feel safe around law enforcement agents (ICE, DPD, Homeland Security, etc).”

According to the Detroit News, Police Chief James Craig commented on the food truck owner’s policy, saying, “Generally speaking, we have good relations in that neighborhood, but my officers tell me whenever they’ve been in that area investigating criminal matters, she’s been uncooperative and rude.”
