Good reason to call the cops #3: didn’t immediately order coffee


Starbucks Coffee apologized on Saturday for an incident at a Philadelphia location when two African American men were removed from the store by over a half dozen police.

On Thursday, video of the police action was posted on Twitter by Melissa DePino.

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

If there are any mitigating circumstances that make the Starbucks employee who called the cops not an execrable garbage person, they haven’t emerged yet. And it’s been a few days now.
