Officers did nothing wrong in Philadelphia Starbucks arrest, police chief says


"They were professional in all their dealings with these gentlemen, and instead they got the opposite back". "It's absolute discrimination", Yaffe adds. The men calmly explained they hadn't done anything wrong.

"The video speaks for itself", Wimmer said in a statement, calling the arrest "reprehensible".

The saga began when a video posted on Twitter on Tuesday showed police arresting two black men in Twitter for "doing nothing", in the words of the user who posted the video.

"Ever since I posted this, I've had white strangers AND friends say "there must be something more to this story". The names of the two individuals who discriminated upon was once again withheld, enough damage had been done. He said the men answered that "we don't care", which Ross called the "same type of attitude" Starbucks staff had described.

Benjamin Waxman, a spokesman for Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, said the office decided that there "wasn't sufficient evidence to charge [the men] with a crime".

Starbucks responded to the videos, saying "we're reviewing the incident with our partners, law enforcement and customers to determine what took place and led to this unfortunate result".

Cellphone footage that onlookers filmed of Thursday's incident shows the two men sitting quietly at a table and talking for several minutes to police officers who have apparently been called to the store. The men did not order anything and were waiting for a friend to show up.

After the arrest, the police were also being criticized for their handling of the situation.

"If a business calls and they say that "Someone is here that I no longer wish to be in my business" (officers) now have a legal obligation to carry out their duties and they did just that", Ross said. He said officers were told that the men had come in and asked to use the restroom but were denied because they hadn't bought anything, as he said is company policy. They followed policy; they did what they were supposed to do.

The Philadelphia Police Department announced via social media that the incident has sparked an internal investigation. He said the incident underscores the need for more body-worn cameras to present different perspectives of police responses. But, he said, people who "think logically" should recognize that when a business calls and says, "There is someone here I do not want", officers have a right to act.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has issued a public statement on behalf of his precinct and his officers via a Facebook video. "Once we gather all the facts, we will comment further". It was not immediately clear whether Ross' statement means the investigation has concluded. The stores are "community" hubs, the official said, where people often drop in to use the WiFi or chat with friends without necessarily ordering anything.
