A customer in Starbucks complained they felt unsafe because there were so many police officers there having: wait for it: COFFEE. They were promptly asked to leave by the barista. Two of the officers are veterans. One of them served in the military for over 20 years.
On the 4th of July, our Independence Day, how DARE they! Veterans and police officers alike put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms. What exactly did this “safe space” seeking moron feel threatened about? Was he an illegal? Was he waiting for ICE to come in an arrest him? If you’re around a bunch of cops and you FEEL UNSAFE, then YOU are the problem, not them!
Starbucks responded with what looks like a form-letter response. Bland, unfeeling, and an obvious refusal to take sides or reprimand the action of the employee. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were given a raise.
Starbucks has a track record of this sort of behavior. Their social justice employment platform will sink them in the end. For now? Just #DumpStarbucks.
