Why six police officers were asked to leave an Arizona Starbucks

Starbucks apologized on Sunday for a July 4 incident in which six Tempe, Arizona police officers were asked to leave one of its locations because a customer didn’t “feel safe” around them. The apology came after the company had had a few days to investigate the incident. At the time of the incident, six Tempe police officers, who hadn’t yet started their shifts, went to an undisclosed Starbucks location and ordered drinks. While they were waiting for their drinks, they all stood near the front of the building. However, a barista told them that one of the customers didn’t “feel safe” around the cops, and the barista asked the officers to either move out of the customer’s line of sight or leave the building. They left the building.
