If that coffee shop has good doughnuts those cops are pissed.

Seriously, I don't like the way the story sounds but I'd like to hear the shop owners story.

Maybe cops killed someone in his family, who knows?

I'm sure there's more to this story that we don't know right now.

The only reason the business is denying service to customers is because they say that the police “disturb” and “scare” some of their Muslim customers.

Cops eat doughnuts and shoot people, what are they doing wasting time drinking coffee?

Hello boy,

If you can refuse to serve people based on your religion, then it would seem you can refuse to serve people based on your politics.

Can and should are not the same. Many people are for the right to be a prick, but against pricks. Are you for or against the coffee shop that has the right to refuse service based on occupation?

It’s their right, but they are wrong headed. I wouldn’t be surprised if no uniformed officer ever thought to patronize the place before it was announced that they couldn’t. Now no officer out of uniform, nor any of their family/friends would consider it. And I’m sure the people who were inspired to be new patrons are just top notch folks.

Exactly. You do not alienate the moral pillar of your society, that's truly the single worst strategy EVER to have.

The only thing worse than cops with grudges are politicians with obstacles in their way.

Side: Against

Did you know that ppl staged a PEACFULL rally outside and the ANTI-POLICE owners threatened to call the cops on them? And then antifa came and along with the patrons and waitstaff actall y assualted the rallyers. And then the police came and policed their asses.

Where do you draw the line then? Can a restaurant which is really just a front for moving drugs choose to only sell to a narrowly defined clientelle so they don't get busted for what they really do there? Can a bar refuse fire fighters for fear they'll be drunk when they go to a fire? Can a gas station refuse a Formula One race driver for fear he's going to break the law speeding by use of the gas he is buying? Can a hospital refuse a lawyer for fear they'll get sued for malpractice?

Such a silly thing to do. And as another person already mentioned....where do you draw the line? If you are in a business that caters to the public, why deny certain members of the public? It's one thing to deny someone access who has a history of violence, theft, rudeness....that's a different matter as you have experience with that customer and don't want the hassle of their business.

Hello again, boy:

I'm just wondering.. Do the people who think a bakery should REFUSE to serve gays, think a coffee shop SHOULD serve cops??

Even the mafia went out of its way to keep the police happy. Never ever piss off the cops in your local area unless you want trouble.

So cops are thugs and it's best to bow down to them?

You make a baker bow down to some gays who in no way serve or protect him. This is quite a more understandable scenario to force.

That being said, they weren't forced.
