SPRING, TX (KTRK) — A woman claims her trip to the grocery store ended with a cashier refusing to ring up her order because she was wearing a shirt with the words “police lives matter.”
Meredith did not want her last name published. She said the incident happened at a Kroger in Spring last Sunday.
“She made me feel ashamed to have the shirt on and I don’t appreciate that,” Meredith said.
Meredith said a teenage cashier stepped away from the checkout line after seeing her shirt. She said she then overheard the girl speaking with a coworker.
“She was stating that the shirt I had on was basically a slap in the face to her and she was doing everything she could not to cry,” she said.
Meredith, whose husband is a police officer, said the girl never spoke to her directly about the shirt. Another cashier finished ringing her up.
