Dedham police refusing to help claiming restaurant can refuse to seat us.

We have now been accused of being confrontational and condescending by the cops.
Selkie with Amnesia @eustaciavye77
Police officer is not being at all helpful.

Sargent is now being called because officer refused to enforce the law.

Police officer refused to help. Sgt may be on his way. Cop said we came looking for a fight. Dedham police do not get service animal laws!
Selkie with Amnesia @eustaciavye77
Officer referred to dog users as confrontational because they had copies of the laws with them.

Also considered a blind person needing to be close up to read as "being in my face"

Getting awfully hungry. Restaurant's right to refuse service cannot be applied in discriminatory manner against persons w/ disabilities.

Again this is a party of 13 which had a 5 pm reservation and as soon as we came in with the dogs our reservation was no good.
Liz Fong-Jones (方禮真) @lizthegrey
We arrived over 45 min ago. 8 parties seated without incident while we've been here.
Liz Fong-Jones (方禮真) @lizthegrey
Restaurant is demanding id cards for the service dogs and also said we needed to tell them in advance. Both blatantly illegal!
Selkie with Amnesia @eustaciavye77
Police siding with restaurant. Making us leave. Pass the word.
Not A Pumpkin @tikva
We have called the media. Police have refused to help. WFXT on the way!
Selkie with Amnesia @eustaciavye77
One of the dog users is talking to a fox news reporter as we speak.

This place now has a HUGE self-imposed public relations failure under way. What kind of restaurant? Asian? Chinese? Maybe they consider uncooked service animals too difficult to eat. (Sorry. I know that's racist. But it was too good to miss.)

This story would be much better served without the stupid racist comment at the end.
