The police response was childish, first to walk out, and second to have it ordered applied to all officers and all Denny's.
People are uncomfortable around priests in uniform, Muslims in uniform, soldiers in uniform, anyone carrying guns, clowns, Disney characters (just watch all the kids scared out of their wits), hippies handing out flowers, underdressed bikini models in the wrong place for it. They feel awkward going into someone else's place of worship.
The cop should have gone over to the lady customer and introduced herself.
And, I still think we should get rid of the TSA and have a cocktail party at the gate for passengers: those who are uncomfortable with a fellow passenger can take a later flight.
