Reported by ABC 6 on Your Side:
A Columbus police officer was rushed to the hospital after officials say he cut his mouth after biting into a sandwich, which contained several shards of glass from a restaurant on East Long Street Monday afternoon.
Police say the officer bit into the sandwich and felt what was a grisly texture as well as a crunching sound. When he looked into the sandwich, he saw the glass. When he checked his mouth, he saw it was bleeding.
Detectives said it’s not clear whether the incident was accidental or intentional.
While the police are reserving judgment until they finish their investigation, the nature of this story is quite troubling.
Since the rise of Black Lives Matter (BLM), police have been frequently targeted by employees in food service for harassment and discrimination.
And of course, over the last two weeks, BLM ideology has led to a frightening string of armed assaults on police — causing multiple deaths and injuries.
With all the animosity towards our nation’s police, it is not hard to believe how an angry cook or server may have decided to harm this Columbus police officer by putting glass into his sandwich.
And Ohio police officers are particularly in the spotlight this week since the Republican National Convention is meeting in Cleveland.
BLM and other leftist movements are flooding into the city with plans to antagonize and defy law enforcement overseeing crowd control — while also hoping to disrupt the actual convention. 5,000 officers from numerous departments are reported to be on hand for the event.
With anti-police sentiment running rampant with the radical left, the inevitable conclusion is, this officer was most likely the victim of a targeted attack.
The restaurant that served the deadly meal is currently shut down and scheduled to be inspected by public health officials. The names of both the restaurant and the officer injured are being withheld during the police investigation.
While the officer was hospitalized overnight, doctors expect him to be okay.
