Have you ever sat in Starbucks and people watched while you got a little work done.  There are OFTEN TIMES many busy people in there using the space as their own personal ‘OFFICE’ so to speak and may have BABYSAT the same cup of coffee all day.  Other times you may see a very comfortable white man with his shoes kicked off reading the paper ALL DAY….and nothing happens to them.  Well in Philly apparently if you are BLACK and if you ‘loiter’ around too long, they WILL call the cops on you.

A video, which surfaced online Thursday, shows police talking to two black men before handcuffing them and escorting them out of the building.

In the clip, which has been viewed more than 3 million times, a patron can be heard saying, “They didn’t do anything” after another asks, “What did they [the police] get called for, because there were two black guys sitting here meeting me?”

In a tweet, Melissa DePino, who recorded the moment, said, “The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything. They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing.”

Once this made the ROUNDS on social media, people were OUTRAGED citing this act to be RACIST and DISCRIMINATORY:

 

 

 

 

During a Facebook Live statement uploaded Saturday afternoon, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross described the incident. He said the men were “trespassing,” because they were non-paying customers who wanted to use the bathroom. When Starbucks employees asked the men to leave, they refused and the police were called. He said the officers “did absolutely nothing wrong.”


Be it as it may, Starbucks has issued an ‘apology’.

 

This ARREST has prompted the HASHTAG, #BoycottStarbucks…. The INVESTIGATION is still ongoing.

We will revisit this when more info is available.
