Starbucks has been in hot water lately over their employees' anti-law enforcement stance. Back in September, one Barista wrote "ISIS" for a cop's name on his cup. And just a couple weeks ago a Barista in Oklahoma wrote "pig" on an officer's cup.
On Thursday night, two Riverside County Sheriffs in Southern California were refused service at a Riverside location.

We are aware of the “cop with no coffee” incident that occurred in Riverside on 12/12/19, involving our @RSO deputies. We are in communication w/ @Starbucks Corporate addressing the issue of deputies being denied service. #copwithnocoffee #starbucks
Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco took to Twitter to say Starbucks employees' attacks on law enforcement needs to end.
Two of our deputies were refused service at Starbucks. The anti police culture repeatedly displayed by Starbucks employees must end. https://t.co/XXgjtJ9GcH— Chad Bianco (@SheriffBianco) December 14, 2019
According to the coffee company, multiple Baristas ignored the sheriff's deputies for more than five minutes.
"There is simply no excuse for how two Riverside deputies were ignored," Starbucks spokesperson Reggie Borges told ABC 7. "We are deeply sorry and reached out to apologize directly to them."
While the company "investigates" what took place and takes "appropriate steps" the employees who were working that evening will not be scheduled.
How many more anti-law enforcement incidents need to take place before patriots stop giving Starbucks their business? Employees across the nation have made it very clear that they don't back the blue. I'm even sadder that this took place in my hometown. It's a disgrace and a disservice to the men and women who protect our streets every day.
