Tempe Police Asked To Leave Starbucks, Veterans Included

tempe police starbucks
Starbucks barista asked Tempe officers to leave establishment.

A tweet from the Tempe Officers Association regarding a request that a group of officers move or leave a Starbucks coffee shop on the Fourth of July because a customer felt uncomfortable has sparked public outrage.

According to the Association, the incident occurred at the Starbucks at Scottsdale Road and McKellips.

Reggie Borges, a spokesperson for Starbucks, told the Arizona Republic that the company has “reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.”

A statement from the Tempe Officers Association on The July 4th incident and Starbucks’ treatment of police officers:

Yesterday, on Independence Day, six Tempe police officers stopped by the Starbucks at Scottsdale Road and McKellips for coffee. The officers paid for their drinks and stood together having a cup of coffee. They were approached by a barista, who knew one of the officers by name, because he is a regular at that location.

The barista said that a customer “did not feel safe” because of the police presence. The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave.

 

Disappointed, the officers did in fact leave.

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.

We know this is not a national policy at Starbucks Corporate and we look forward to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue.

  1. Was in Chicago last week and bought the police officer in front of me a coffee at Starbucks. When I went to pay, the barista told me “plot twist, there is no charge!” An amazing young woman who paid it forward. Although this situation in Tempe is reprehensible, I am hoping this is not a corporate policy, and simply one persons actions.

  2. I’m boycotting Starbucks until they change this stupid policy. If someone doesn’t feel “comfortable” with police and veterans tell them that life isn’t fair so grow up or feel free to leave.

  3. This is the kind of thing I would expect at Starbucks. What concerns me is cops that would go there at all.

  4. To everyone who is upset about Tucson Police officers asked to leave Starbacks, May I suggest this civic action: When you go by a Starbucks, and notice any Police taking their break there, tell them you are grateful for their service and wish them a safe and great day. We need to remind our law enforcement that the vast majority of citizens honor, respect and support them as the vast majority of them (99% according to reliable sources) serve to protect us, some by sacrificing their very lives-106 officers in 2018 ,( F.B.I. Report). There are many Hi-way signs with the names of law enforcement officers on them, honoring those who died while serving their community. 99% of them deserve our gratitutude, respect and support. Focus on the 99%, let God take care of the 1%. I think he can handle it.

  5. As a citizen of Tempe, I think the “customer” who hates cops should LEAVE.

    I support law enforcement.

  6. I’m done with Starbucks and their SJW environment. When you pukes need 911, stick a finger up your ass and dial.

  7. Are you kidding me?! Just about everyone handled this poorly!! It sucks that some people are so sensitive they can’t go out in public without being offended by something, but it also sucks that Tempe police used social media to make a bigger issue of this than it should have been. I’m shocked someone would be “uncomfortable” with the presence of peace officers. I’m also shocked the barista would have asked them to leave. Neither should have happened. That said, I’m disappointed Tempe police couldn’t have dealt with this privately with their captain and the store manager instead of making a public issue out of it. Why suggest the boycott of a store with a post, a “dump Starbucks” image, and create general negativity in the community when ONE employee made a bad decision based on ONE customer’s opinion? Shame on everyone!

  8. The idiot probably felt uncomfortable because they had an outstanding warrant or wanted to steal something!

  9. This is a message to all who have a problem with law enforcement. What are you afraid of? Have you broken the law, or are you just plain dumb? Six cops go into a Starbucks to have a break from what could be their last day on this earth, because some ASSHOLE who doesn’t like cops decides he is going to a big man and kill a cop. Add to this, those men are VETS who served their country. They are asked to leave because this idiot feels uncomfortable around them. I am a VETERAN. When I came back from VIET NAM, I was asked to leave a restaurant because I was wearing my uniform with my TRIDENT on my blouse. I was a FROGMAN,(NAVY SEAL) for twenty-four years and proud of my service. So to all of those who feel uncomfortable around uniforms I say; FOXTROT YANKEE to all of you REMFS.

  10. Oh you freaking snowflakes just need to go back to your safe place and leave law enforcement officers alone. How rude of that barista to ask them to leave. I hope she got fired.
    If I lived there I’d make them some great coffee drinks so they don’t have to go to a place that doesn’t welcome them!
    Not corporate policy? Well then, Starbucks, you need to stop hiring stupid people.

    And anybody uncomfortable around the police must have something they are worried about being caught about. They are human just like the rest of us.
    I’d rather hang out with cops than whiny snowflake babies!

  11. This is how crazy the loonie left has become. Your “safe space” is AT HOME. If you can’t handle the real world, I guess you’ll have to stay home.

  12. Pavement Pusher is making me uncomortable here ADI !
    Can you ask him not to leave his words here,,my rights are at risk
    Oh my what should You do ..

    Starbucks should donate 1 free yr of coffee etc to Every law enforcement and Veteran of USA
    Thank You All Law Enforcement Brave Men and Woman for your service
    Ps all Border Patrol All Guards man included

    Bless you
    Peace

  13. If you’re not breaking the law you have no reason to be uncomfortable- period. If the cops were shooting into the wall then I would take exception, otherwise they were “people” having a coffee break and yes police officers are people last time I checked- there is NO excuse for this behavior- Time to stop pandering to the mentally ill and get a grip- I’m sure that customer wont feel uncomfortable calling the police when they need them- boycott starbucks- their coffee is overrated expensive and dont cater to the regular working guy anyway- they can all feel comfortable together in their fancy stores holding hands over the campfire and sing kumbaya

  14. F*** Starbucks if they don’t want our Vetrans & Officers to patronize their stores. All my coffe & gift cards will now be from Coffee Bean or Peet’s which are actually better too!
    What snobs to reject people who protect and serve our country, our States, our nation’s, & not only our lives but our families lives in our loved ones. People who put their lives in jeopardy every day to keep public safety and take a chance of dying each time they walk out the door and leaving their children and wives or husbands behind to uphold justice.
    Have you ever heard a police officer break down crying because of a call he went on or after he had to deliver the devastating news of loss of a loved one and had to hold in his/her emotions from the family. Have you ever seen how had a officer is on themselves when they couldn’t stop someone from killing someone else in a domestic violence situation because the person kept going back? I have, yet they take a deep breath and hide their emotions from the world and jump back in to protect and serve.
    The public is becoming a bunch of puppets listening to a bunch of “made for ratings” news. People do not realize the stress and disheartening situations that police officers are put into everyday and how many calls they get that destroy them inside but they wish not to burden their families or friends with it so it continues to eat them up, but for them to enjoy a moment of peace and silence amongst other fellow officers you kick them out of your Starbucks establishment, that is pure unethical crap!
    Anyone who feels unsafe with Law Enforcement around or Military Personnel who are defending that person in a time of emergency or need is pretty much a guilty party who is insecure with whatever they are doing so shame on you. You my dear can kiss my a** & to those Police Officers and Military Veterans of the United States of America that were kicked out of Starbucks I back you 100% and pray that God watches over you in everything you do.
    Thank you for all you do for not only my family but for those who are lost and too confused to say thank you themselves.
    God Bless you all.

  15. One of the problems is that our educational system is run by liberal Christian hating administrators and teachers who indoctrinate the children to THEIR way of thinking, and instill in the children passiveness and equality for all. To me, it seems that our schools are breeding liberals and will be used by the politicians to strengthen their chances at power. The young barista probably had no clue as to the meaning of asking these officers to leave. All he or she knew is that a customer was uncomfortable and without regard to consequences, asked these officers to leave. Starbucks now faces another PR backlash that they will now have to spin. It’s unfortunate that this may cost this young barista their job but someone will have to be the scapegoat.

  16. I wouldn’t waste my hard-earned money at any of their fad dumps anyway, butI guess one way to get rid of a regular customer is to tell him to hit the road with his other paying customer buddies. Or maybe Scarbugs would be happier if the regular cop customers took off their guns and left them in the car before they came in. Nawwwwww, someone would only bitch about the uniform or the badge.

  17. I’ve had it with Starbucks. their coffee isn’t the greatest and they take such an arrogant attitude that they are the best. The employee that asked the Officers to leave should be fired. They would be if I were the owner or manager. It’s time to stand up and find a different coffee establishment that treats people like good customers and they don’t have overpriced products…..

  18. Besides who says everyone has to “feel comfortable”? Grow in your discomfort. Maybe the barista should have introduced everyone. Start a rapport instead of exclusion.

  19. I for one that has 33 years in law enforcement will no longer use Starbucks or Starbucks products.
    I’m don’t listening the the crap they allow their workers to dish out. I love this country and stand for the flag. All others can leave this great country. USA

  20. You can think what you’d like, but if you are a person who is uncomfortable around the police, ask yourself why that is! If you’re in trouble, and need help, as the ghostbusters say, who you gonna call?!! Complete morons for posting your idiotic opinion about police brutality! Check facts before chiming in! Another idea…become an officer who has to fight for others, put YOUR life on the line to see what their job is like! Don’t have the balls, do ya?!

  21. I hope she or the person who was offended never have a need to call them for their services. THANK YOU to all who serve us as a career.

  22. Why is the actions of one (stupid) employee a reason to dis an entire corporation? She obviously acted on her own, not following any “corporate policy” If you read the article you would see that. But, if course…. most FB posts are people just following the crowd.

    • sb had similar incidents to this over the years and claimed they were ‘training’ their folks to not over react become too pc! guess this ‘waitress’ didnt either go to the pc classes or was to dumb to understand what she was told? Or maybe, just maybe the sb policies are just bs to cover their asses which is more than likely.

      I only see these place on the corners, or at safeway when shopping. Cant really understand how some will gladly pay for something that is way cheaper and just as good someplace else. But I guess they think they are showing their sophistication by walking abound sipping from a green cup?

    • You’d love it in some of the African countries where there are no Police. There are also no Ambulances, no doctors, no dentists, no teachers, no rules, no food, no water, no protection from the hot sun. You’d die within a week.

  23. This is unacceptable and a disgrace. The employee knew one of the officer’s by name as he was a regular and therefore a repeat customer. When are these leftist idiots going to get their heads out of their asses? This is Arizona by god and we have a gun culture here and are proud of it, even the police. If you don’t accept that, MOVE.
    Darrell D. Murray, Retired Arizona Highway Patrol

  24. I think we all should call this establishment and tell them how we feel… Starbucks Scottsdale and McKellips 480-941-6046

  25. Fear of police is growing especially if you’re a person with a darker shade of skin. Maturity, tolerance & understanding by the police is what we all expect. So Tempe police shouldn’t now be out to get a Starbucks location, period. I’d have to guess they’ve faced harder things in their line of work than this. It’s petty.

    • Did you know the officers? Perhaps some or all of them were, “Darker skin” as you say.

      And if you actually go talk to people who, “Fear” the police for no obvious reason(like being a criminal) those people tend to be, white females. It’s a progressive female thing. I have no idea why, just the what I’ve seen in my family and friends.

      As for getting back at SB, you’re right. People who are not liked by SB and their employees should go some where else. There are other coffee shops for Police, military, family of police and military, contractors that works with police and military and of course all people who are not liberal progressives. Just go somewhere else and enjoy a non-progressive atmosphere. The irony is, those shops are often the most inclusive.

  26. Are you kidding me??? I lived in Az for years. Even regular people legally carry guns. If guns offend you, leave Az!!! To have this happen in Az means way too many potheads from the college in that area. Go back to your home states and leave Az!

  27. Not feeling safe or guilty and afraid of being caught from a previous crime they committed, ignorance is bliss, as much as I like the coffee, this veteran will not be buying Starbucks coffee unless they fix this….

    • Did you not read that some of the Tempe Officers were veterans? Even cops can be veterans and a couple of decades ago, almost all of law enforcement had prior military service.

  28. Starbucks has already made it clear I’m not welcome there… why? Because I defended their right to act like this by serving my country…. so now the military and veterans have the company of police officers… the few, the proud, the unwelcome at Starbucks…

  29. My husband is in Law enforcement, we drop a lot if money in Starbucks. Im disappointed in Starbucks, Im not sure if we will continue going. Officers are paying citizens just like that pansy that was uncomfortable. Jeezz!! Grow up

  30. So when a gunman comes in, i want that barista to look at that customer and say, “I cant call the cops because you feel unsafe with them, so I need you to take care of this situation”

  31. It’s about tribalism. The left has decided the police and most on this website are not allowed. Don’t just boycott Starbucks. Find a like minded set of businesses to go to and give them your money. Support conservative, small, local, etc businesses. It’s good for the community. It’s good to not be around as many mentally ill people. It’s good not to be around as many progressives and their toxic mentality.

    Choose your tribe or it will be chosen for you. Welcome to the new progressive America.

    • So, you were O.K. with Starbuck’s when their CEO demanded all tips be sent to corporate? That wasn’t “toxic”? But, if a bunch of cops are asked to stand somewhere else you take issue?

      Also, you said “Find a like minded set of businesses to go to and give them your money. Support conservative, small, local, etc businesses” but, accuse the left of tribalism? Sounds like you’re a bit of a tribesman yourself guy.

      • wasn’t the pc sb ceo going to run for president? Did you support him and any stupid policies he likely would have proposed? Seems to me that your rock or whatever you hide under needs to be cleaned out and turned over for you to see the sunlight!

      • Nope, I haven’t gone to SB in many years. They hate the police. This isn’t the first incident like this. I stopped going long before they started stealing from their employees.

        As for me being in a tribe? Yep. Welcome to the progressive America comrade. It’s been this way for years. Time to man up snowflake.

  32. So the sheep don’t like the sheepdog and want him to go away…. They’ll be crying for his help when the wolf shows up.

  33. How come the PC news is not reporting the names of the customer or the barista? Even first names?
    Do you think the customer’s name is Bill, Gary, or Sally? Probably not.

  34. I stopped supporting SB’s when the CEO came out against guns. I put my money with people, food, restaurants & shops that support what I believe. It makes my life simple and I know I don’t have to put up with snowflakes.

    • Oh, you didn’t years before that when the CEO requested all tips be sent to corporate. So, guns are more important than people to you? Great.

  35. This may be up there on the list of the dumbest things I’ve heard so far in 2019. What on earth could scare ANYONE about a half dozen uniformed police officers taking a quick break to have a coffee? Is this person guilty of something? A fugitive? In hiding? I can’t for the life of me understand this. I’d welcome the entire police staff if I was a coffee shop owner. Some people are simply LOOKING for trouble…

  36. I am Completely appalled!! Of Course Starbucks says it is not their police and they support the police. But someone needs to educate the Barista who should have told the customer That everyone is welcome and left it at that. And the person who complained needs to crawl back under their rock so nothing will ever offend them again! Poor baby ?
    But if anything good comes out of stupid people, I messaged Tempe Police and told them how proud and grateful we are for their service and that I would be Happy to help them ever, even make them Coffee ☕️ ?❤️

  37. Ask why are you afraid? No one needed to be asked to leave best comment would have been if you are afraid you don’t have to be here they are customers and are harming no one, your choice. Why is that stores believe that one persons satisfaction is more important than another’s. I again would be more concerned about why someone is afraid of the police presence

    • WOW PavePusher, think you have a serious problem!! You might want to get an MRI to check out that brain of yours. It seems to be lacking a sense of decency!!

    • You understand what he’s saying, but instead of challenging his comment with some intelligence you chose to be Sally spell checker. “ignoramous”

  38. Absolutely shameful on Starbucks for their treatment of those police officers i certainly hope you never need the police for anything ans to the scumbag customer pos your probably a criminal

  39. They say this is not Starbucks company policy but yet it happens quite often at Starbucks. Why did this patron feel so offended by police presence, is it because they were maybe running from the law? Guess we will never know. I would have told the patron to quietly leave not the police.

    • Don’t need to patronize Starbucks. There are tons of coffee joints. Even McDonald’s has decent coffee.

  40. This just confirms why I have not been in a Stardiots in several years. One uncomfortable customer compared to six public servants. You can guess who in my book should be the one to leave. Thanks to all of you officers for your service.

  41. could it have been an ILLEGAL who was the requester and didnt want to draw attention by running out the door? Really now, with all the PC training these folks are supposed to be getting it must not be enough to sink in.

    Also must be overpaying the cops up there is they can afford to stop at the place to begin with. McD’s sells for $1 the same stuff, BQ also not sure about the rest. Besides donuts at the place are extra expensive!

    • Could have also been a person who’s dog was shot by the police, or someone who was unjustly beaten by a police officer and now has PTSD.

      • It could have also been a stupid who resisted arrest or got stupid mouthy with a cop and he felt like he needed a safe room to ease his stressful feelings

      • And this could have happened where here in az? yes there are some leo’s who do dumb things, but there are more dumb asses around who generally get what they deserve. Problem is that the legal system has gotten too PC and these idiots think they are above everyone else. Must be democraps I guess?

      • It really doesn’t matter what the reason was; Az Gal said it best …. If you feel uncomfortable in any given situation, take responsibility and get yourself out of the situation. OR if you really want to be a big person and grow, maybe start a conversation. Something like: When I saw you walk in the door, at first I really felt uncomfortable because ….; how can we all learn from my experiences? *** OF course if those who think there was a drug deal about to go down, probably just leave. I know my dealer isn’t even coming in the parking lot if he sees multiple cop cars. Sorry for the late post, I work to pay my bills (and my dealer)

    • First , we need to recognize the absolute NEED for police officers and give the them respect and support they deserve, as THEY ARE KEEPING US SAFE !!! Second, Starbucks should realize that not all customer requests are rational, and need to be given into. Third, this happened on the 4th of July. In light of the Colin K./ Nike Crap about our early edition of the stars & stripes flag, it is time for red blooded Americans to stand up, be counted, and shame this kind of thinking. Last week I was at a moving ceremony honoring my deceased nephew’s service to a firefighting unit, Can not image how relatives/friends of slain police officers feel…..

    • My guess is that the “scared” customer was the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant or he was there to meet his drug dealer and didn’t want law enforcement officers there to spoil his deal.

  42. Who doesn’t feel safe around law enforcement and veterans? You fill in the blank…

    • Yeah I agree the person that felt unsafe around the police must have felt guilty of something feeling they may get caught

      • Unprovoked my ass!! Start listening to cops when you encounter them instead of disregarding/disrespecting them and fighting with them. Contrary to the bs you’ve been ingrained with they dont go out thinking they want to shoot a black guy every day…moron.

  43. Unreal!
    But, it ‘is’ the marxist town of Tempe, after all.
    Perhaps the ‘barista’ feels safe enough at all times, to not e v e r
    call for police help …?

  44. There were 6…SIX customers who happened to be uniformed officers of the law. ONE lame brain ignoramus who was scared. Barista should have escorted said lame brain to the nearest door and asked it to leave to place where it would feel safe.

    • Amen, I would have told that goofball, ”well there’s the door, you can leave”. These people are unbelievable. That lame brain probably had a warrant out for their arrest and then of course would have a reason to feel uncomfortable. That barista was the idiot!

  45. It is a shame the employee didn’t have the balls to tell the person that felt uncomfortable to leave. He would rather kick out six customers instead of one??
    The next time you have a problem in your store and need the police, call the person that was uncomfortable instead and have them handle it…
    ?#idiots

    • Meh. When they stop shooting dogs, and stop pulling guns on shoplifters, I’ll be sympathetic.

      • They pulled guns on fleeing felons. Educate yourself instead of just reading media sources with an agenda.

        • This is so frustrating! If you’re uncomfortable, leave! Don’t expect someone to change what they’re doing to make you comfortable. Take responsibility for yourself, your feelings and your actions and stop blaming others for “making you” feel this or do that or whatever the heck. I am beyond frustrated with this mentality. Grow up people and take responsibility for yourself.

        • Don’t let little things like facts get in the way of a good story, bryan…you know they should have just let that whole family of shoplifters go. Even after they eluded them. With children in the car. Christ, you can’t make this shit up. And still the police are the villains…..SMMFH.

        • Tom: They did just that. They let them go and went and found them later. That’s what police do. They don’t continue to chase vehicles for most crimes. Unfortunately that is never talked about in news stories. They want a certain reaction from a certain class of people. And guess what? They got it. Suckers…

      • Be sure to NOT run from the cops after you shoplift, then you wont have to worry about guns.

      • When you stop putting officers in a box like people do pitbulls then someone will care about your opinion.

        • PavePusher you’re and example of what’s wrong in this country today. Idiots and punks like you are the problem not the solution. Maybe one day you’ll be violated and need law enforcements assistance.

      • You are an idiot, but these officers defend your right to be an idiot, and even though you are an idiot if you were being an idiot at a place like Starbucks and were really unsafe, Irregardless of how you or this organization feels about police and our veterans, they would still come and protect you from someone that really wishes to do you harm!

        • F*** Starbucks if they don’t want our Vetrans & Officers to patronize their stores. All my coffe & gift cards will now be from Coffee Bean or Peet’s which are actually better too!
          What snobs to reject people who protect and serve our country, our States, our nation’s, & not only our lives but our families lives in our loved ones. People who put their lives in jeopardy every day to keep public safety and take a chance of dying each time they walk out the door and leaving their children and wives or husbands behind to uphold justice.
          Have you ever heard a police officer break down crying because of a call he went on or after he had to deliver the devastating news of loss of a loved one and had to hold in his/her emotions from the family. Have you ever seen how had a officer is on themselves when they couldn’t stop someone from killing someone else in a domestic violence situation because the person kept going back? I have, yet they take a deep breath and hide their emotions from the world and jump back in to protect and serve.
          The public is becoming a bunch of puppets listening to a bunch of “made for ratings” news. People do not realize the stress and disheartening situations that police officers are put into everyday and how many calls they get that destroy them inside but they wish not to burden their families or friends with it so it continues to eat them up, but for them to enjoy a moment of peace and silence amongst other fellow officers you kick them out of your Starbucks establishment, that is pure unethical crap!
          Anyone who feels unsafe with Law Enforcement around or Military Personnel who are defending that person in a time of emergency or need is pretty much a guilty party who is insecure with whatever they are doing so shame on you. You my dear can kiss my a** & to those Police Officers and Military Veterans of the United States of America that were kicked out of Starbucks I back you 100% and pray that God watches over you in everything you do.
          Thank you for all you do for not only my family but for those who are lost and too confused to say thank you themselves.
          God Bless you all.

      • LOL, they all shoot dogs and pull guns on shoplifters? These guys did? Isn’t the very nature of discrimination making the bad attributes of a few the attributes of the many and then using that to justify discrimination?

        • Well said!! Also, if that unnamed customer felt uncomfortable with police in the house, maybe they had reason? Worried the cops might… Smell something? Hmm? Bad call, Starbucks employee. The customer should reassess those feelings as what actually helps the police keep the world just a little safer for delicate people like him/her.

      • Pave Pusher, when you get the guts enough,join the local police dept and see if you can handle it. Maybe you can change the way they work? Or, maybe you can’t handle it because you are afraid? Either way, the law enforcement officers have a right to enjoy their coffee, or lunch, just like everyone else. Have you ever just sat down and talked with the police officer working your neighborhood? You might be enlightened as to what you can learn.

      • I SUPPORT Law enforcement that keeps us safe! The lady that felt uncomfortable should have left instead of fussing!

      • You have never had one of your family in law enforcement I assume
        . Bottom line if you ever get in trouble and need police to come to your aid, they will come, and risk their own lives to make sure you are safe!

      • I hope YOU never need their assistance.. shop lifters are NOT innocent people.. When people stop breaking the law, resisting arrest and trying to use a child to get away with it, perhaps then, leo’s won’t have to draw their weapons.. I have no sympathy for THOSE people.. Cops getting shot in their cars while minding their own business and writing their reports, getting set up and killed when fake calls are made to draw them in, it’s no wonder they are jumpy.. and if the situation were reversed, YOU’d be just as jumpy.. So.. take your snide remarks elsewhere..

      • You’re an asshole!! You don’t blame an entire group
        for the actions of a few. I hope you
        need the police and they don’t come.

      • I’d prefer law enforcement pull out of neighborhoods like yours and leave you to your own devices.

    • What was that person doing or selling that a police presence made them feel uncomfortable would be the first thing I would want to know.

    • Probably an illegal intruder said that he doesn’t feel safe while police are around.
      Instead of moving him away, Starbucks asked the police to leave.
      Soon the illegal intruders will overrun the entire country.

    • I think the barista, in effect, asked waaaay more than 6 customers to leave.
      I bet all police, firefighters, veterans, and many, many more, will not spend one more penny on a Starbucks product. Bye, Felicia.

    • Why didn’t the ‘customer’ have balls enough to tell the officers their self? And the employee didn’t have to ask the officers to move, or leave.
