Vegan Attacks Police Department For Tweeting 'Offensive' Photo—And People Can't Even

By Chet Dawson

If you've chosen to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet, we'd like to very quietly say, "Good for you." As with many matters of conscience, food choices are personal decisions, so it's generally best not to get too aggressive or judgmental. After all, there's a reason people use 'preachy' as a pejorative. Let's take the following situation as an example.

Police officers in rural North Wales tweeted a photo of their generous breakfast at a team meeting:

It's your typical U.K. breakfast: a giant pile of poached eggs, sausages, beans, toast — all the usual suspects. 

But someone out there took offense, and replied with this now-deleted tweet:

Speaking as a tax payer I'd prefer them to be less selective when answering questions and perhaps not post breakfast pics that offend vegetarian/vegan followers - pretty thoughtless considering the job title they have.
