    Right or wrong and I don't go to Starbucks I don't know how common it is to just hang out.
    If you're in establishment and you're not ordering and they asked you to order or leave. it is what it is.

    So legally no problems......
    Now the question is did they call the police because they were black? We can speculate.


    My thought is manager wanted them to leave (not arrested) and that's what they called the police. (I bet there is a starbucks policy) The police took the unnecessary step of arresting them. I blame the police for cuffing them if they could have just required them to leave.

    Probably because it's the polar opposite of the corporate image Starbucks tries to present.

    Thats sort of racist. Tell me what you know of the manager other than a couple of black guys got arrested in his place of employment.

    ----

    You know, I saw a headline on this story after discussing this thread and it was something along the lines of "outrage as 2 black men arrested at starbucks" and I realized how scarily accurate that statement is. Still no confirmation on why they were removed but just the idea of 2 black guys getting arrested is considered eyebrow raising. Like there couldn't possibly be any legit reason for it.

    Ok, but why do we care? Let’s say it is as you say, Its still just one manager, in one store, in one city, who may have gone against their “model” and asked someone to leave he shouldn’t have. National news and dozens of Sherpages?

    Now you are now saying you generally have a place to charge your phone and wifi, and if you have to go somewhere, you usually buy something? I mean, I would say you are pretty trashy if you make a habit of going any not purchasing something. Which brings me back to my original point.

    Because, if you read the first few pages of the thread, people were acting like just hanging around to use wifi and bathrooms, without purchasing anything, is a normal practice of sorts. As if there are several people at a time in Starbucks just there to chill, without the purchase of something. Just because it is a business model of a "third space", I don't think they intend a free lounge.

    So I don't know how you got to assuming I don't go out much or travel.

    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.

    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.

    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.
