Disgusting: Starbucks barista told six Arizona cops to LEAVE because ONE customer felt…’unsafe’

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) The vast majority of Americans feel much safer when a police officer is in their vicinity, let alone a half-dozen of them, because they don’t buy into the Colin Kaepernick narrative that ‘all officers are racists’ who love to shoot people, especially young black men.

But one customer at a Tempe, Arizona Starbucks was apparently so triggered by the presence of six city officers on the Fourth of July he/she complained about feeling “unsafe” to the barista — who summarily asked the officers to leave the establishment.

The request/demand outraged the Tempe Police Association, which addressed the incident in a series of tweets this week.

“Yesterday, on Independence Day, six Tempe police officers stopped by the Starbucks at Scottsdale Road and McKellips for coffee. The officers paid for their drinks and stood together having a cup of coffee before their long 4th of July shift,” the union tweeted on Friday.

“They were approached by a barista, who knew one of the officers by name, because he is a regular at that location. The barista said that a customer ‘did not feel safe’ because of the police presence. The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave. Disappointed, the officers did in fact leave.

“This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.

“We know this is not a national policy at Starbucks Corporate and we look forward to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue,” the union tweeted.

Rob Ferraro, president of the police union, said the Starbucks incident involving the Tempe officers is, unfortunately, symptomatic of the larger problem gripping America, KSAZ-TV reported — which is Left-wing hate and distrust of the one institution that keeps the fabric of our society stitched together.

“It’s become accepted to not trust or to see police and think that we’re not here to serve you, and again, it goes back to — we take great pride of the level of customer service we provide to citizens, and to be looked at as feeling unsafe when you have law enforcement around you is somewhat perplexing to me,” Ferraro said.

While the Tempe police union hasn’t called for a Boycott of Starbucks, the organization nevertheless made its anger well known in a follow-up tweet.

“Don’t appreciate @Starbucks asking our #Tempe cops to leave your establishment on the #4thofjuly2019. Several of those cops are #veterans who fought for this country! #ZeroRespect,” the union tweeted Friday.

As of July 1, according to the FBI, 24 police officers have been “feloniously killed” in the line of duty, while an additional 24 have been killed accidentally.

  1. Fire the Witch.

  2. I would have ignored the idiot barista and continued to enjoy my coffee. My money is just as good as any liberal’s. Later, I would have a discussion with my lawyer about litigating. That should be the last trip any cop makes to Starbucks, the incident being sufficient for an international boycott. There are plenty of good, locally owned coffee shops who are far more appreciative of our community police than these corrupt multinational corporation.

    That is not disgusting! What is disgusting is the fact that the police officer’s did not tell the barista to make them leave! I would have pulled my gun on the little commie twirp and showed him/her the door—with my foot up his/her butt about three feet deep! That that did not happen IS disgusting!

  4. The complaining individual should have been given two options. Stay and feel uncomfortable or leave. The police should never have been approached or even made aware of the snowflake’s issue(s).

  5. “We will leave ma’am as soon as we can. We have had anonymous reports traced to this address from someone claiming persecution by authority figures. Our police profiler has recommended they be evaluated for a mental disorder as they may be of harm to themselves or others. Would you recognize anyone that might fit that description?”

  6. The cops should have told her they’d leave when they were finished with their coffee and not before. And if cops are drinking Starbucks, we’re paying them too much.

  7. The police make me feel unsafe as well. Conservative, alt-right, Trump supporter. I just wish he wouldn’t hold these cowards to such high esteem. Police are cowards. Brood mares for the state coffers. 1% of police work is actually useful to the everyday citizen. Figures don’t lie.
