They ought to make this punk lick the toliets clean at the jail. Sick punk.

I will never be able to eat at Taco John's again. Sad, but place has a stigma now.

Oh Lord that's nasty!!! Glad the officer spotted it before he consumed it - or did he? Hope this one doesn't walk away with a slap on the wrist.

Gosh, Gail Ann. What if you were in line behind the officers and the tacos got mixed up? If you found the pubic hair in your food would you still hold Ellis up as a hero?

So many sick puppies, no time to find them all.

LOL! I am not condoning this incident.. But it POSED NO HEALTH RISK WHATSOEVER... NONE. ZILCH.. Nada.. NO health risk..... ROFL.... COPS.. COPS.. boy, they have all the authority and run their smart a$$ mouths... but then bellyache when someone retaliates... LOL! I wonder if those cops will go to the drive thru again??? I once knew a buddy who worked at a local restaurant who cooked dipping tobacco he had chewed..in with a steak that he knew a cop was going to eat.. he stood there at the kitchen door area and watched the cop eat it.. LOL! and the cops just thought they had control over the little pions of the countryside... cops you better check those burgers and fries along with other things you might be eating.. who knows what you might find... it could be someone's DNA in a good source of PROTEIN... LOL

I hope that this sends a message to all of the other low life morons like this guy that work in the food industry as to what the consequences of this stupidity are. If you have a problem with a Police Officer, then you deal with them face to face, not like that. That is the coward way to do it. Just because you have a bad experience with a cop or they charge you for breaking the law, its no excuse to target the others. Its all funny until you find out its a felony and youre charged with it!

Only a true moron would show their true intellect by making a remark like that. If a piece of scum garbage like that is your hero maybe you should let him feed you to!

I doubt he intended to cause "bodily injury, serious bodily injury or death" so he may be able to get out of that rap.

At least we know the police officiers treat food and meals with the top level of respect at their jails.
