Woman says party supply store employee refused to fill balloon order for fallen officer

- A Party City customer claims that an employee refused to fill her balloon order after discovering that it was for a Pennsylvania police officer’s memorial ceremony.

Karly Lane told WPIX-TV that she went to the Party City in Pleasant Hills on Saturday to buy black and blue balloons for her friend, Duquesne police officer Robert GoGo Jr., who died in an off-duty motorcycle crash nearly a month ago.

Lane said she told the employee that the balloons were for GoGo’s ceremony and the employee allegedly told Lane that she refused to support a police officer and made a co-worker help Lane out instead.

"How can you not support a police officer? It doesn't matter. They don't know my brother. They don't know what kind of man he was. They don't know what he did in his job. It just hurts," GoGo’s siter Jennifer Martino told the station.
