Cop should be thankful it was only salt. Usually a malcontent cook will spit a loagie or toss a booger into a cop’s sandwich.[xx(] I was a cop for 13 years (many, many years ago) and recognized almost all the short-order cooks from having worked the jails for 4 years. County jail turns out an awful lot of fry-cooks. It’s where they get their "rehabilitative training." That’s why I almost always packed my lunch from home.
