7-Eleven Clerk Refuses Service To Soldier
Okay y'all I realize that this is older news but I just became aware of it and wanted to share. I rarely go use 7-eleven but as of now I'll be avoiding it all together.

7-Eleven Clerk Refuses Service To Soldier


“She said, 'You're in the military?' I said, 'Yes,'” Brown told KIRO. “She said, 'I can't serve you.' Honestly, I was in shock. I asked, 'Are you serious?' She looked at me like she was offended."

Re: 7-Eleven Clerk Refuses Service To Soldier
This looks to be the original story.

Soldier unhappy with service at 7-Eleven

"A local soldier, whose story sparked a firestorm of nationwide anger on social media, says a Redmond convenience store clerk denied him service, after he showed his military ID."



7-Eleven's response:

"It's clear that a misunderstanding occurred at a franchised 7-Eleven store. We understand that a customer presented a military ID as a form of identification when buying age-restricted products, and the Franchisee’s store associate could not clearly read the birth date. In this instance, the store associate, by law, was required to ask to see a second form of ID with a birthdate. After the customer's age was verified, the transaction was completed. Serving members of the military, being named a top military-friendly company and employing military veterans are great honors for 7-Eleven.”

In response to the official statement the soldier requested that 7-eleven view the stores video to support his version of events.

You certainly are not wrong. I was once as you were, a Democrat. Boy have I changed my tune in the last decade or so. The party is unrecognizable from what it once represented.

Re: 7-Eleven Clerk Refuses Service To Soldier
I don't understand why any of you have any respect for what are essentially corporate mercenaries who are fighting in wars of aggression for the profits of their masters.

Or corporate policy enforcers parading around impersonating law enforcement. The police are just the henchmen of the organized crime syndicate known as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INC. which is a provately owned, for profit, french corporation, a foreign power.

The military does not fight for the homeland or for the people but rather they fight for the profits of the corporation.

It is the same with the police, they do not serve the public by enforcing the law of the land, they serve the corporation, be it city, county or state and the fraudulent color of or UCC (Uniform Commercial Code)s of the corporation in spite of the law.

Traveling the public fairway is a right but they have you grovelling like slaves for permission to "drive" in your own private property on the public roads. They do not own the roads, you or your car so why are they allowed to impose these rules upon you? Because they say you consented, you consent to be ruled by a corporation is implied. Implied consent is another fraud being perpetrated upon you by the corporations that are masquerading as the government of the people.

I guess if you don't shoot at them then you consent and if you do shoot at them they kill you. So your choices are to consent to corporate rule or die and be slandered on the news because you chose to defend yourself against organized crime. Do you still think you are free?

The cities, counties and states were all incorporated into the master USA INC. corporation. One by one the local "leaders" sold you out to the corporation.

You've all been had. I don't think Trump is going to do anything about this either. Until the military flags are removed from our courthouses we will remain in bondage to the corporation and it's henchmen/mercenaries. It doesn't matter who is president, any color of bondage is still bondage.

So she couldn't read is his DOB on the military ID and asked for a second ID when he was buying age restricted products. Like, beer or cigs.

I thank you for your well written synopsis in regard to the difficulties faced by both the armed and police forces as well as the general citizens of the United States. I understand that you have a number of valid concerns so I would respectfully like to ask you, what shall we as a united community do to alter the path that you proclaim our protectors have found themselves on while still securing the safety or our country?

No doubt it could have been but it seems that is not what Mr Brown was after. In the original story he is quoted as saying,

“From moment one, the only thing I was hoping to do by coming forward with this is to get the issue addressed with the employee,” He said. “If you don't know something is wrong, you can't fix it."

Okay, in due diligence I went back through the stories to look for dates. As I said in my original post this is old news, quite old actually as the event happened in July of 2015. In my defense, the video that led me to the story was posted on Sep 27, 2017 and the America Now article was dated November 26, 2017. The man's ID expired November 17 2017 so at time of the original story his ID would have been valid.hf
