An area bakery that refused to serve an armed police officer received harsh criticism from the San Francisco Police Officers Association.
According to the police union, one of its officers was refused service this month at the Arab bakery Reem’s California on Mission Street because he was “armed and in uniform.”
“NO COPS ALLOWED. That’s the confirmed policy of the bakery chain Reem’s,” the SF POA wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. The post includes a photo of an email exchange between the union and the bakery where a Reem’s spokesperson wrote, “At Reem’s, we do have a policy to not serve anyone that is armed in a uniform.”
“Presumably, this includes members of the US Military,” the police union responded on X. They condemned the bakery for its “bigoted” and “discriminatory” policy and demanded the bakery put up a sign alerting customers of the policy.
