BREAKING: Popular America Coffee Shop BANS All Police Officers… BOYCOTT NOW!

Oakland, CALIFORNIA — A popular coffee shop named Hasta Muerte Coffee has officially banned all law enforcement from patronizing the establishment and a hell of a lot of people are pissed off.

The liberal coffee shop/bookstore wrote in their Instagram page:

“We have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves. We know in our experience working on campaigns against police brutality that we are not alone saying that police presence compromises our feeling of physical & emotional safety.”

These punks are freaking aholes.

Television station KTVU reports that it all started when an Oakland police sergeant stopped by Hasta Muerte Coffee in the Fruitvale District to introduce himself and to buy a cup. But the sergeant was denied service.

According to a letter sent to the cafe by the Oakland police union, cafe staff told the sergeant that it “does not serve the police. Obviously, this is both a surprise and a matter of concern for all Oakland police officers.”

It’s a surprise to many residents as well. “I don’t know what they got against them,” said Roberto Lopez.

Another resident, who wished only to be identified as “T,” agreed, saying, “I think it’s cold blooded. I don’t understand that.”

The cafe hasn’t responded to the police union’s letter sent two weeks ago requesting an explanation. Cafe managers declined to comment to KTVU.

But Oakland City Councilmember Noel Gallo, who represents the Fruitvale District, spoke to cafe managers Thursday and confirmed it’s still the business’ unwritten policy not to serve the men and women in blue.

“My understanding is they’re not going to serve police officers,” Gallo said.

“I don’t agree with that, 100 percent,” Gallo added. “I think we need to work together, not against each other.”

Todd Starnes has more:

But frankly, the owners of Hasta Muerte Coffee do not care what anyone thinks of the ban – accusing their critics of being “white or have adopted the privileges whiteness affords.”

But they also get triggered by black and gay police officers.

“The facts are that (police of color), women and queer police are complicit in upholding the same law and order that routinely criminalizes and terrorizes black and brown and poor folks, especially youth, trans and houseless folks,” the shop owners wrote on Instagram.

I’d be curious to know whether the coffee shop has violated California’s strict non-discrimination laws.

Had the customers in question been denied service because of the color of their skin or the sexual orientation, I suspect the attorney general’s office would’ve already launched an investigation.

I’m sure there are other coffee houses around Oakland that will be more than happy to pour a cup of java for a police officer.

And heaven forbid the folks at Hasta Muerte Coffee ever find themselves in need of help from the police – but if they do – I have no doubt officers would be there in a heartbeat.

The Oakland Police Department protects and serves everyone – even leftwing bigots.
