The Denny's customer who complained about Belleville Police being on duty with their guns near as they were eating their meal, that customer should have been asked by Denny's people to leave the restaurant. The police should have stayed to finish their meals.
Many years ago, I saw a man in Belleville's Wal-Mart store in civilian clothes wearing a gun on his right hip. This was uneasy because this man did not seem to have a badge or anything to tell what he was. Watching this armed man for a few minutes, I was put at ease when a uniformed armed man came up and talked with him.
No union, no voice, lady employees, new boss.
