    It's bad enough that just about every liberal in America is flat-out bonkers on just about everything, especially race. But one would hope that a top cop of a major American city would have common sense, and a responsibility to THE LAW, rather than what makes mouthy blacks in Black Lives Matter feel good.

    Unfortunately, the top cop of Phildelphia has gone from taking a correct position (that his cops enforced the law properly), to caving in to political pressure of some looney tunes, who turn everything where black people are involved, into a racial incident.

    The Starbucks arrests of 2 black guys trespassing and inerfering with the operation of a business, were done as they should be. The 2 thugs arrested, had no right to sit in the restaurant and occupy 2 seats needed by paying customers, when they weren't buying anything, and were asked to leave. They had no right to refuse to leave.

    This isn't a civil rights case, it's a simple matter of LAW, which the police chief was right about originally, and then curiously, changed his position and denounced the arrests. Bad decision on his part. It's unfair to Starbucks, unfair to the cops who made the arrests, unfair to Starbucks paying customers who need a place to sit, and unfair to everyone in Philadelphia who is entitled to lawful policing.

    Generally, in cases like this (where things get done to favor blacks, regardless of the law), there's a Democrat mayor behind it all. Ordinarily, this Democrat mayor (Jim Kenney) will get zero publicity, leftist media won't say a word about him, and the whole incident will be portrayed as something about discriminating against blacks.

    So add one more item to the list of lawbreakers being allowed to block traffic in Democrat mayor cities, thugs being allowed to chase and attack people going to Trump rallies, rioters burning and looting, more rioters throwing rocks at cops, etc etc.

    Few things could be more obvious a reason to vote for Republicans in city official elections, governors, and other political offices. Liberals often hold signs reading "The Whole World Is Watching". Well, yes it is. And people around the world must (correctly) deduce that America is a nation gone mad, when it comes to derailed law enforcement in Democrat-ruled jurisdictions.

    No one is mentioning, anymore, that the guys asked for the code to the bathroom as soon as they came in. Before a purchase. Did they decide that part of the story didn't happen, or does it not matter anymore why the waitress asked them to leave after they gave her lip for not giving them the code?

    Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney (the only reason the 2 thugs were released) said this >> the incident "appears to exemplify what racial discrimination looks like in 2018." He added that the apology from Starbucks "is not enough" and that he would ask the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations to examine the firm's policies and procedures and whether there should be bias training for its employees.

    Yeah, go after those black votes, Jimmy boy. don't let a single one of them get away. And don't forget to submit this for the Pander of the Year 2018 Award.

    No, of course not, but they might as well tell the whole story. It isn't like they sat down and out of the blue the waitress called the cops because they hadn't ordered coffee. That's what it sounds like.
    What Starbucks did and how the cops responded to it are two separate things in my book.
    Some employees go "by the book" especially when they're new, and others cut customers some slack. Any possibility she wasn't being racist and was just being a bathroom Nazi?

    Did YOU decide that it DID happen, just because they say so ? And no matter what about the bathroom, if they weren't buying anything, they shouldn't have been occupying the 2 seats they were (depriving paying customers). If it were my store, I'd have booted them out in an instant.

    How about this part >>
    "A police report states the men cursed at the manager after she told them bathrooms are for customers only.

    She called 911 to report that the men were not making a purchase and were refusing to leave."

    Anything is possible. Hell, people are even supporting innocents getting arrested for asking to use the bathroom and sitting down for 2 minutes. I never thought that was possible until now.

    Try reading the link in the OP. Knowing why they were arrested, is vital to the thread. Also helps to keep you from looking ridiculous. :rolleyes:
