PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Providence police union is speaking out quickly after an officer received a cup of coffee with “blacklivesmatter” written on it.

The Fraternal Order of Police says the incident is “unacceptable and discouraging.”

The officer told the union that he received a cup of coffee Friday at a Dunkin’ Donuts retailer with the slogan written on the cup. He says the suspected employee was rude to him.

The slogan arose out of protests nationwide last year from a perceived notion of police violence against civilians.

Lt. Roger Aspinall, a union member, told WLNE-Tv the slogan is anti-police and the Black Lives Matter movement “condones violence against police.”

The union says it believes that “all lives matter.”

A call to Dunkin’ Donuts corporate headquarters in Canton, Massachusetts, had not been returned at the time of this writing.
