This from Broke Lester lol
Racist liberals being racist and calling this behavior conservative. Not surprised.
This thread should be about Starbucks calling the cops on these black dudes not about cops doing their jobs.
That being said, if I were the cops I would not have made the guys leave. I would have told the SB manager that this is a meeting place for everyone and that is what they advertise. FUCK Starbucks.
The police told them to leave, they refused. That is why they were arrested. No one wanted to proceed with charges, so they were processed and released.
The current massive obsession with identity politics.
I guess. Just surprised every time I check in and see this thread still chugging along. Seems like there’s not enough of a story to even fill one page let alone dozens but here we are.
Cops can’t refuse to enforce the law. Unless the manager just straight out said “I want them to leave cause theyre black” they have to ask them to leave and if they still refuse to leave they are obligated to remove them.
I'm so glad I am not a cop.
Then I make the manager tell me (on body cam) that he wants me to remove the dudes.
I think this situation is going to win this years Rage Olympics. Such a ridiculous story to blow out of proportion. It's on the front page of CNN.
Send this fucking thread to the dump already. For such a non-story I can't believe it's still active
Black men arrested in Philadelphia Starbucks agree to meet with CEO
That’s usually already relayed through dispatch. Generally these calls would come out as “subjects refusing to leave, mgr wants them removed.” So you know going in the business wants them to leave and they are refusing. People usually give up on keeping it real when told it’s either leave or be arrested for trespassing but sometimes you get a stubborn/Crazy person who choose to be arrested for whatever reason.
My girlfriend worked for Starbucks for a few years. Her location would give people 15 minutes and then ask them to leave. For those saying it looked slow and not busy that makes it easier for the workers to know who is in there and in general how long they have been in there.
Plus you have no idea if that’s all they did. They could have asked them to buy something after ten minutes and he told hem to fuck off.
It's actually pretty common for people to hang out and not buy anything. The problem is if the Star Bucks is in a busy location those people would be occupying up space and hurting the business.
I have no issue with this.
If only my local McDonalds would call the cops on the hordes of teens who loiter. So okay they were waiting for a friend, I say tough shit I really do. Wait outside until your pal comes or order something when inside, something small to drink/nibble on till your friend comes.
As for 'this only happened because they were black' well...maybe, but I would go one further and say this only happened because they were black males in their prime years (anything from 15-45 is game).
This is a ageism and sexism issue to. Serious. Groups of young men are more likely to have people on edge and be 'suspected'.
Two middle aged, or even elderly black women would be less likely to be asked to leave.
It looks like the CEO is full in damage control mode. He'll probably cut them a nice check in turn for a positive statement. This doesn't set a very good precedent though. People shouldn't get rewarded for not following directions.
Even if the store manager was 100% right in this situation she will probably still lose her job on the grounds that the corporation doesn't want to appear racist. The word racist is basically the new N-word for white people.
That being said, if in fact this lady was a down to the bone racist and just didn't want black people in her store, then I hope she loses her job. I just find that hard to believe, seeing as coffee shops are usually very liberal places.
I go to starbucks everyday, it's full of people who are just loitering
this is patently absurd
effin wrong! You can't say "you know this, you know that". You got a cystal ball or something?
I myself used to be a 13 year old trouble maker. I got asked to leave many public places for just loitering. Laundry mats, McDonalds, Dairy Queens just to name a few. And you know what I did? I LEFT!
