    Allow police to drug test people on the street and treat a positive test as drug possession. Then punish drug possession with 1 + year in prison. The streets would be cleaned up overnight.

    Are you a loyal Starbucks customer or something? Why so invested in business affairs that have nothing to do with you?

    Wait till a junkie od’s in a bathroom. After those two young businessman were harassed Starbucks let it be known all are welcome. They brought this on themselves but the Starbucks locations in Manhattan are still nice and do not have homeless using them as drug dens.

    What country are you comparing the US to as far as restroom availability. And before you answer, I’ve been to more countries than you have fingers and toes.

    Not “respect” but not obeying an order from a cop.... pretty sure there are laws against that.

    This isn't a Starbucks problem, this is a problem all over the country. There are even convenience stores using purple lights(makes it harder to find the vein) in their bathrooms to deter people from shooting up.

    All Starbucks had to do was apologize to the two black gentlemen about what happened last year and promise that incidents like this won't happen again. It would have blown over in a few weeks the minute the media found another story to focus on. They just wanted to keep out those protestors because it was bad PR.

    But this is the mess they created. CEO continues to make his millions while his employees are forced to clean up after drug addicts if they want to get paid. Are any Starbucks executives going to pick up any bloody needles or just their minimum wage, 40 hours a week employee's?

    I don't care how tolerant a person may be; who the hell would want to sit in a coffee shop while homeless people are in the bathroom shooting dope in their veins?

    Exactly

    My college roommate worked at the Starbucks in downtown Portland, which has become a haven for homelessness and drug use same with Seattle and San Francisco. He had to ask so many homeless people to leave the location because no other employee wanted to. He quit last year almost right after the incident with the two men.

    I want to blame this on Starbucks but this is a problem in every corner of Seattle. That place has gone to shit.

    I’m not comparing US to any other other country, I’m comparing our country’s public bathroom availability against its need.

    It's shocking how easily you can meet standards if you don't set them. So, yeah, I'm shocked. Shocked, I say!

    Burger king seems to be the preferred place to leave sharps here.
