FTA: Borders said Police Doughnuts is meant to recall a time when officers really did hang out at doughnut shops, whereas today's police "are all into this fitness crap."

I live near there. I'll have to stop by and check it out.

Is it possible that they are better than Krispy Kreme?

Probably not.

There are no tables or chairs because Borders wants to avoid a requirement that he install handicapped-accessible restrooms.


That will last until the first cop hurt in the line of duty can't use the restroom.

Then it will be interesting to see who active cops and the PBA side with. The injured cop who was "discriminated by the law" or the ex-cop trying to save money on his business?

Seems very odd that a person whose career was to serve all citizens is so against being handicapped-accessible.

Just to bring a bit of outrage to this thread...

I was on a bus the other day and observed the following scene:

An unmarked/undercover cop van making a K-turn across 4 lanes of traffic, nearly hitting a family on the sidewalk in the process.

Why?

So they could double park and waddle into the Dunkin' Donuts on the other side.

Bastards.

Nope - not a soul. Not even my post right below it. Right over my head it went.

I doubt he would approve actually...

FTA "Located in a strip center on Shelbyville Road near Juneau Drive, roughly across the highway from the Louisville Metro Police 8th Division headquarters, "the doughnut shop is "decorated" as a sterile police bureau.


As a Sheriffs Deputy myself, I detest doughnuts. I never really lied them before being a cop, and after I joined, I decided that I would never fall into that sterotype. I know plenty of cops who do though. However, "that fitness crap" is catching on big time as well. A lot more police officers, myself included, are former military, especially young guys getting out of service after being overseas. To the younger generation of cop, high and tight haircuts, Oakley tactical sunglasses, and being in shape is a lot more popular that the fat old aviator sunglasses and mustache image cops used to have.

I may stop on my way around that area this weekend. I am thinking NOTHING is as good as Krispy Kreme! If it sucks, I will just go to the Krispy on Bardstown off 264...

Hahahaha, I didnt even catch that part until you pointed it out.

Touche.

I remember in my high school, we had a NYS state trooper assigned there, probably one of the fattest cops i had ever seen, and he always had a dunkin donuts bag with him every morning. I guess was too fat for real duty, so they assigned him to the mundane job asserting authority in school and confiscating skateboards.

But I do agree, cops have undergone an image change over the past decade. I guess they get a better fear response out of someone if they are tall and buffed up and look like they could kick your ass before you even think about fighting back, then the aviators and double chin deputy donut.

Personally, I think it should be "To protect and service doughnuts."

But that's just me.

FTFY

Do you think the fat old cops were always fat and old?

If the law is the same as here, he probably IS "handicapped-accessible". He just doesn't provide restrooms for his customers, ANY of them. The chain of events is that if you run a sit-down food place, you have to also provide restrooms. If it's to-go only, you don't.

//Retro-fitting one friend's pizza shop I know w. a wheel-chair-friendly public bathroom would cost him $10K. He ain't ever going to put in tables.

And there are folks who make a living by suing mom-and-pop shops for not being ADA compliant. They threaten to sue the crap out of them, and drop it if the shop owners agree to a $$ settlement.

I'm not sure, but sounds like you missed my point.
If he has no tables for the public, he doesn't have to have a restroom for the public.
If he doesn't have a restroom for the public, there's no ADA-compliance issue
You don't HAVE a public restroom. For anyone.

So you're saying it is wrong for citizens to enforce laws that local cops don't or won't? Try living in a wheelchair for a while, my friend. You'll see that its not all about the parking. The ADA was written for a reason and if people choose to scoff at the law, then they deserve to have their asses handed to them when they get caught.
