[Ed. – If the customer felt unsafe, then he should have been the one to leave. Surely he would have felt more safe out on the street where no one is ever a victim of crime.]
Some Tempe Police officers were forced to take their coffee to go at Starbucks in the East Valley city, where officers claim an employee asked them to leave the store on July 4th.
FOX 10’s Justin Lum spoke with the President of the Tempe Officers Association, who said a customer told a Starbucks employee they felt unsafe because of the number of officers in the store.
According to TOA officials, a group of five Tempe officers had just bought their drinks and stood near the front of the Starbucks, and that’s when a barista made the request for the customer, and so, they left. FOX 10 has learned that two of the officers, who are veterans, are offended and frustrated by what happened. On Friday, the association took to social media, and posted a “Dump Starbucks” photo.
