In the wake of this morning’s tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado, Chick-fil-A is feeding the tireless police officers working the case.’s Lee Stranahan learned of the fast food chain’s outreach earlier today via police radio:

The notice went out over the police radio at 4:45am Mountain Time that the restaurant had opened its doors to police and emergency workers to get a meal and use the facilities. Some double checked to see if the the restaurant was offering free food and that was confirmed.

@LScribbens THEY didn't make a deal of it. I heard it on the police scanner and reported it.

Chick-fil-A has been such a media punching bag lately, they deserve credit for helping out the police officers working on #AuroraShooting

I. Hate. Bullies. And if Ben and Jerry's had opened their doors to the police, I'd have praised them, too. Deal with it, hateful left.

A handful of vile Twitterers refused to put politics aside in the tragedy’s aftermath and seized the opportunity to condemn Chick-fil-A for its vocal support of traditional marriage:

$3M to fight marriage equality, but it's ok cuz they gave cops some chicken tenders and waffle fries? @m_mcaulay @MaxGraham @stranahan

@stranahan Yes because that makes up for all they've done wrong. giving away food to the cops. HAHA

Fortunately, most people had their priorities straight and rightly praised Chick-fil-A for its generosity:
