I think the same thing looking for that free (big ) money payouts
sadly most places tread lightly and handle with kid gloves anymore
the old we reserve the right to refuse service are long gone
even wanting to have actual customers as in buying a item of the menu


years back I remember reading about a disabled lawyer traveled thru all the old tourist towns in California then send a letter to all the small shop owners .. ether pay up XX amount to me or face discrimination charges for not having handicapped access . a lot of mom and pop shops had to close they could not pay the extortion cost or the up grades to handle all the handicap regulations

I could care less about Starbucks but it sounds like a set-up to extort money from a company by some less than desirable individuals.

The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

The media is portraying Starbucks as a bunch of Klansmen. In the Yankee city of Philadelphia.

My how times have changed, I grew up in Georgia and all I heard on the news was what a bunch of racists we Southerners were, meanwhile all was peace and kindness up in Yankeeland.

I have never bought coffee at Starbucks but they are in the news all the time, the customers and management there are always a bunch of libs.
Starbucks is there to make money and they obviously don't care if you are black or white, if you come in there and buy coffee they are glad to see you.
If you come in there just to hang around and use the bathroom, obviously they want you to leave.

This thing smells to high heaven, the media portraying this as "Klansmen of Philadelphia Starbucks."

Racial tensions are at a low point, now in America, the worst I have seen in the last 40 years, and it is thanks to Obama, who never missed a chance to race-bait, as in the Treyvon and Micheal Brown cases. Obama set back race relations 50 years in my country.

You have to figure, a company with 28,000 stores must have come up with procedures for handling problem customers, & trained all of their managers. We're told the manager is "no longer at this store", but I'd like to see her, & hear her explanation of the incident. I don't know, but this entire incident does not sound right.

I admit to being an occasional Starbucks customer. Most of the times I visit, I see several people camped out with their computers, taking advantage of the free wifi that is in every store. They often take up a table & several chairs for their coats & books, & stay for hours. Usually they have a Starbucks cup in front of them, but I have never seen anyone asked to leave, or denied use of the restroom. However, in Manhattan I have had to request a key or combination to get in the restroom, & that may have spread.

I'm sure that a sincere apology will be announced soon, & there will no hard feelings.

Isn't it called loitering if you are just hanging around a place of business with intent of buying something.

Local ice cream shops will run kids off if they just hang around and not buy something.

Is this much different?

US Army (Ret.)

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Jefferson`s “Commonplace Book,”

“Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” Robert A. Heinlein

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.”- Heraclitus.
