Florida Cop Falsely Accuses Burger King Workers of Placing Dirt in his Food

A Facebook post by Fort Myers police officer Tim McCormick showing a picture of his receipt went viral before being deleted.

McCormick took to social media with claims that a Fort Myers Burger King put dirt in his sandwich.

The post was picked up by Blue Lives Matter where angry commenters described it as part of a larger conspiracy that places cops’ lives in danger.

But it turned out to be another false allegation.

The post read:

“Ladies and Gentleman of the Line!!
I was the Officer who was served a burger at Burger King at 4004 Cleveland Avenue in Ft Myers with dirt in it, At first I thought it was just burned old bacon, I was hungry and ate the burger, at the last bite I saw dirt and grit on the burger. In disgust, I threw it out of the window. I quickly noticed that my receipt had big block letters with the word POLICE on it. this has never been the case previously. I went inside and made contact with the manager who said “sorry, what do you want me to do?” Just before speaking to the manager the staff member from the drive thru asked “what the matter officer something wrong with your order?” Then she and the other staff had a good laugh. Some day we first responders just want to grab a quick bite because we are overwhelmed with calls, and this is how we are treated. I contacted cooperate offices and they said “not our problem we’ll have the franchise owner contact you”, When contacted by the franchise owner he said “It is impossible for dirt to get into food, you’re crazy!”
So to my brothers and sisters I say this. only eat at safe places and check your food before hand. EXCELSIOR!!!!!!”

The post went viral and had over 22,000 shares before being deleted.

McCormick believes he was targeted because the receipt said police and that “this is how” first responders sometimes get treated.

Dan Fitzpatrick, chairman and CEO of Quality Dining Inc., which owns 90 Burger Kings franchises in Florida, reached out to the department after receiving word of his allegations.

“This has my full and undivided attention,” Fitzpatrick said, according to Naples News.

Fitzpatrick and other officers reviewed security footage and determined that there was no wrong doing and suggested that the “dirt and grit” was just spices, according to News-Press.

The reason behind the label POLICE on the receipt is due to a way that branch is trying to make a more personal connection.

“Every one of our guests we ask ‘May we have your name to better serve you?’,” said Fitzpatrick.

McCormick first responded as “officer,” but when asked to repeat it since they could not understand, McCormick said “police officer.”

So far McCormick has not made a public apology for accusing the hard working employees.

Currently McCormick’s fake named account is still up and is violating Facebooks Terms of Service as well as the [Computer Fraud and Abuse Act](http://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=(title:18%20section:1030%20edition:prelim%29), which is a felony.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
