Police officers asked to leave AZ Starbucks

Several officers were asked to leave a Starbucks in Mesa, Arizona, after another customer said they felt threatened.

According to Tempe Officers Association, the Union representing the officers, several officers who were preparing to start a July 4 shift were asked by a barista to leave the store or move out of the line of sight because a customer didn’t feel safe.

Several of the men were veterans and the barista even knew one of the officers by name because he was a regular at the location.

Starbucks said they are looking into the situation.

The incident comes months after Starbucks closed 8,000 locations for training due to a Philadelphia store kicking a black man out for similar reasons.
