Thank you, my friend SP5 Mark Kuzinski for posting the article from Town Hall.com
Thankfully
1. Starbucks spokesman Reggie Borges stated ""We've reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.”
2. Kay Jewelers moved quickly, apologized to the uniformed police officer after a manager told him he could not pick up his engagement ring because he was armed, and Kay Jewelers fired the manager.

"Some police officers in Tempe, Ariz., say they were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop on the Fourth of July because a customer complained they “did not feel safe” with the cops present, according to reports.
Five officers were drinking coffee at the Starbucks location prior to their shift beginning when a barista asked them to move out of the complaining customer’s line of sight or else leave, the Tempe Officers Association wrote in a series of Twitter messages.
Rob Ferraro, president of the police union, told FOX 10 of Phoenix that such treatment of police officers seems to be happening more often these days.
[…]
A Starbucks spokesman told the Arizona Republic the company was still gathering details about what happened.
"We have a deep respect for the Tempe Police and their service to the community," spokesman Reggie Borges told the newspaper. "We've reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.”

This is one of many stories being reported across the country concerning people being morons about law enforcement. In Prince William County, Virginia six years ago, a Buffalo Wild Wings establishment refused to serve police officers in plain clothes because they were carrying their guns. In June, Kay Jewelers had to rush to avoid a public relations disaster when a store manager told a police officer he wasn’t allowed in the store to pick up his engagement ring because he was carrying his service firearm. The cop was in uniform. He was told he could leave his firearm in his squad car and retrieve his ring, a violation of department policy. Kay moved quickly, apologized to the officer, and fired the manager.:

Kay Jewelers handled that like all of the other places should have. Fire the offender. That manager took it upon themselves to instigate their own policy, and not Kay jewelers policy.

I have no time for the snowflake atmosphere at a Starbucks. Instead of going to Starbucks, you'd do better to just make your coffee at home, yell your name out incorrectly, then light a $5 bill on fire.

Sgt Albert Castro - Yup the old fashioned stand alone gas station went to gas, and convenience store, and now it's gas, convenience store, and fast food dining. I wonder how long it will be before they have motels attached. I know when we are traveling on an Interstate. We look for a motel with a gas station and a place to eat real close.
