    In his fantasy world if he thinks it, and says it...it's true. Even though it pretty much never is.

    Waiting for their shift to begin. IÂ’m not buying that.


    Before the new policy, the company left the decision of whether a person could sit or use the bathroom up to store managers.

    ^^^from the article you quoted and probably didnÂ’t even read.


    Its not owned by the public no shit. But it is open to the public and their policy never said you had to buy something or leave.


    It said you cant use the bathroom without being a customer. ThatÂ’s designed so feinds donÂ’t go shoot heroine in the bathroom and leave. Not because people are using tables and the WiFi. Just saying.

    An establishment is the wrong word because it’s privately owned no shit.

    But my point is- a cafe is a place where you go to sit down and use the WiFi, maybe get coffee. Have a discussion. Meet someone. It is foolish to say you have to by something or get out at a Starbucks.


    And i don’t believe for a second the cops were waiting for their shift to begin. And how would anyone know that? All I see are cops sitting around doing nothing drinking coffee in gas stations, Dunkin’ Donuts. So I don’t want to hear some shit about they were waiting for their shift to start. Nonsense

    Lol look at you feeling all special because you got Marges support lmfao. Eat a bag of dicks pal.

    Faireycarey, you and Enflameo are a combined 8483748383848483737 in discussions against me. Wow I used the wrong word omg. You know what I meant. Obviously the public doesn’t own Starbucks fuckhead. But it’s a coffee shop and coffee shops, cafes have flexibility with people sitting down, waiting. Or else they need to go privately. Maybe be drive thru only. But nah they see the bigger picture.

    Your the idiot saying you have to purchase something or you can’t sit down in a cafe. What a world that would be.

    If they’re black, yes then it is acceptable apparently.


    Ive just never heard of a white guy being kicked out of a Starbucks for sitting down at a table. I tried it. And what do you know, no one bothered me.

    I didn’t even have anything but my phone and some headphones.

    The bottom line is that it’s a private business, and as such, have the right to ask anyone to leave for whatever reason they want. And in this case, they did. And now they are suffering public backlash. End of story

    And the public backlash is coming from the far right extremist idiots, just like quite a few on this site.

    YOU HAVE to PAY or GET OUT. Lol nah bro. That doesn’t happen at coffee shops unless you’re black. Just really that simple.

    The managers at star bucks were given full discretion and that was the problem. Because you are basing it on one man’s beliefs and biases. So only smart thing to do is to take it out of the managers hands. And then the far right extremist idiots go wild. Lmfao

    I didn’t read the whole story because frankly I don’t care that much, but from the little I did, Starbucks didn’t kick them out because they didn’t buy anything. So why are you bringing that argument up? They kicked them out because a customer complained they were making them feel uncomfortable or something.

    So I am right faireycarey. There was no policy about this. It was due to the bathrooms and druggies. Which you think is less of a problem than people sitting at a table doing nothing.

    Your own fucking article states the old policy was left up to the manager to decide. Lmaooooooo. The policy was never “buy something or get out.”

    Because it’s all relative. There never was a policy that you had to buy or leave. The manager had full discretion. It was over bathrooms and drugs. Not people sitting at tables. So the real reason they asked those blacks to leave wasn’t because they didn’t buy anything- it’s because it was the same reason they asked the cops to leave. Because the manager felt uncomfortable. And they didn’t have any drugs on them, they were harassed, so the company is smart enough to change their policy.

    With the cops- it’s the same thing as that incident is what I am saying. Besides the blacks got arrested and the cops can’t arrest themselves so they left lol. Duh

    And Faireycarrey said no no it’s not.


    Well It is. And that’s how it started. So Faireycarry takes another L. I’ll give you a round for my mistake. 2-1 easy work.

    Adios girls.

    Let me reset this for you, because you have a hard time staying on track.

    Case #1:
    Two kids come in, don't buy anything, and are loitering in a private establishment. Management asks them to leave (per policy it is at their discretion). Kids don't leave, manager calls cops, kids get arrested.
    This is not OK to you because the kids are black.

    Case #2:
    Cops come in off duty, buy coffee at a coffee shop, and are sitting there not bothering anyone. Literally they are drinking coffee in a coffee shop. Customer complains, the paying customers are asked to leave, and they do.
    This is OK to you because...ya know, blue wall of silence and Ferguson and stuff.

    In other words, you are a race-baiting piece of shit.
    Got it.

    Have no idea what previous case you’re talking about. All I know is that from skimming your posts, you were saying Starbucks didn’t have the right to kick the cops out. Just pointing out in my opinion they did

    You think case #1 justifies case #2, and it doesn't.
    They are two totally different sets of circumstances.
    Mainly differentiated by the fact that in case #2 we are talking about paying customers who weren't overtly bothering anyone.

    Wow. Seems like you guys are making a big deal out of nothing. They should have been asked to leave. What other regular citizen is allowed to just stand in a group in a place serving coffee just clogging shit up? Get the fuck out of the way. The black people went to go sit down at least they had manners. Cops think they can do whatever they want. YOU CANT. Sorry. If they were off duty, why aren’t they sitting down like normal human beings? You have to stand up and cause a scene in a big group chat? Fuck outta here with that shit. Go take your ass to the vehicle I let you drive and sip your coffee

    It should be noted that in Case #1, the police were called when the two loiterers refused to purchase something or leave the tables open for paying patrons, at the manager's request. They refused and were warned if they didn't comply that the police would be called. When the police arrived they tried in vain for several minutes with very civil (too civil) conversation to get those guys to vacate those tables OR face arrest. The culprits STILL refused. OK. Arrest. Dumb, rude, shits. And I don't care what color they were. Any civil person knows the rules in an eating establishment. And if you are too out of it to make it into adulthood without understanding those unwritten rules, listen respectfully and respond respectfully when you are informed.

    Those guys deserved to get arrested. Lots of ways they could have avoided that outcome. But nope.

    Dude you just said it’s a cafe where people can loiter and chill out without buying anything. Now you’re saying the cops who bought coffee shouldn’t be in there “clogging shit up?” Where does it say they were standing and not sitting? Dumb

    They think they can do whatever they want. I’m glad someone told them what was up. Stop clogging up shit just because you’re a cop and you think you can have a little gathering when people are trying to get their coffee. Get the fuck out the way.

    The blacks had respect and decency to go sit down and mind their own business. These assholes standing around like they run the place.

    They do the same exact shit for stuff that they deem necessary to clog up an entire road over. Causing hazardous situations because they don’t want to park correctly. Anyone else parks like that they get a ticket.

    Always hold them accountable. Always remind them they are not better than any member of the public. So don’t think for a second you are special and can do anything that the public isn’t allowed to do. They are beneath them if anything. They work for me. Remember that.

    Yeah but according to Mob they were arrested cause they're black, and the cops were NOT arrested cause they can't arrest themselves.
    Or something.

    The black kids went to go sit down. The cops think they run the place. Can do whatever they want. Show some respect for the establishment. Take your ass out of the way. It’s just public decency. They don’t have any of that even though they work for the public they don’t have any. It’s factual

    Line of sight does not imply they were standing you dumb fuck.
    It means the customers could SEE THEM.
