A Tempe, Arizona Starbucks ejected six police officers on the Fourth of July because a customer complained that they “did not feel safe” in their presence, according to Fox 10 Phoenix.  

“The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave,” according to the Tempe Officers Association Twitter account.

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 pic.twitter.com/oGaDKhlYX3

According to a Starbucks spokesman, “We have a deep respect for the Tempe Police and their service to the community,” adding “We’ve reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.” 

Of course, this follows months of ‘sensitivity training’ after a Philadelphia Starbucks manager had two black men arrested for simply sitting in a store without placing an order.
