    And this is why the Democrats are going to lose in 2020.

    Too many babies on both sides, but asking the cops to leave is completely fucked up. Way to go lunatic lefties.

      What about the two black men that an employee called the cops on while they waited for someone they were meeting with? Did you have strong feelings about that situation as well?

    If the police came in wouldn't you feel safer? The media is seriously manipulating people's minds.

      You never know. Maybe the other customer had a run in with a corrupt cop before, or was subject to police brutality which made him distrust law enforcement. It isn't always white or black.

      That's like saying I saw a black man rob someone and now I feel uncomfortable around them (not refuting you, just trying to show how dumb this is)

      It is exactly that. I get the point you are trying to make. But it is how things work here. Stereotypes. I think we try to be overprotective at times.

      I’ve had lots of experiences with cops. No, they absolutely do not make me feel safer. The concept of law endorsement is great. The reality...varies. A lot.

    Their coffee is burnt taste and overpriced. McDonald’s coffee is better

    If one customer makes another uncomfortable store can ask them to leave. But it requires valid reasoning. Individual/personal insecurity is not valid in my opinion.

    If someone is feeling insecure due to their own personal fear that’s not my or stores problem. Store shouldn’t have asked cops to leave but asked the first customer to leave instead. Cops were paid customers too.

    I understand that there are highest numbers of cop shooting incident in that county specifically so general fear is given. But still feels like it was bit too much to ask other person to leave simply based on their profession. Not all fingers of palm are same.

      E-Trade, as rightly pointed out by some in this thread, your individual opinion is irrelevant

      cbEV72 agreed! That’s because individual reasoning. Someone living in neighborhood with highest number of cop shootings might have different reasoning to be feared. Different perspective.

      Police don’t just come to a random neighborhood to shoot people. Nonsenses

      Why didn’t uncomfortable person leave? That’s what I would have done, and have done, if uncomfortable.

      Store person should have done that too. @baudnull store person was friendly with cop since cop was regular there and just thought it would be ok since they knew each other. Store was at fault here and apologized as well

    Black non paying customer not allowed rest room access :- Barista fired and Starbucks closed nationwide for training

    Police officers who paid for coffee asked to leave: Starbucks offers a half hearted apology.

    Racism and hypocrisy all in one! Present day Liberals are way more racist than Conservatives!

      This is bound to happen in a country like America where everyone around you is from a different culture.

      Yes we can blame Starbucks, but what exactly can Starbucks do, they can't brainwash every employee to behave in a certain way, humans can't be programmed. There will be bias as long as this is a melting pot of cultures.

      I honestly don't see a solution here

    The employee who took the complaint should have just laughed in their face

    Normal resolution of the situation:
    Barista responds to customer that police are paying customers who have all rights to be there and offers to make coffee to go so that poor soul can gtfo to its safe space under a bridge.

    Liberal resolution:
    Barista asks police to leave.

    To all the hypocrites who voted #1, most of you would have been screaming of racism for you just replaced “police” with a Black or Latina, especially female!
    Fucking hypocrites you all are!

    Next time you step into Starbucks in SF do ask barista to kick out smelly hobo sleeping at the corner desk. See how it goes.
