Dallas Police Sergeant Investigated over Chick-fil-A Incident

A Dallas police sergeant named Mark Johnson has been transferred and reassigned to an overnight shift while being investigated over an incident involving a Chick-fil-A sandwich.

Johnson, you see, is said to have entered into the station’s briefing room with a Chick-fil-A sandwich on “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” — a day organized by Mike Huckabee in support of comments made by Chick-fil-A’s CEO regarding same-sex marriage. Two lesbian officers at the station filed a complaint claiming that Johnson placed the sandwich directly in front of them during the briefing — which allegedly included information about the Chick-fil-A demonstrations going on that day — and acted in a manner that left them “embarrassed and humiliated” because he had been trying to “send them a message.”
