It’s happened once again. The complete lack of respect for uniform, on duty police officers these days is mind boggling. This time it’s a Starbucks in Tempe, AZ where on the Fourth Of July an employee asked several Tempe Police Officers to leave the establishment or get out of sight because a customer complained they “did not feel safe” with the police present.
“This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.” Tempe Officer Association Statement.
