For their “emotional safety,” Oakland coffee shop won’t serve cops

I’m guessing first time the coffee shop is robbed they are going to call the “community” to solve the crime. Good luck with that approach.

From Daily Mail: A California coffee shop is standing up to police brutality by refusing to serve officers.

Hasta Muerte – which translates from Spanish to ‘until death’ – turned away an Oakland police officer a few weeks ago sparking a debate within the community, NBC Bay Area reports. The sergeant said he was surprised that employees refused to serve him, but he left the shop without any incident.

Apparently, the sergeant posted about his experience at Hasta Muerte which led to the employee-owned coffee shop, which opened last November, to defend its decision to turn away cops. 

Cop supporters are trying to publicly shame us online with low reviews because this particular police visitor was Latino. He broadcasted to his network that he was “refused service” at a local business and now the rumblings are spreading,’ an Instagram post read. ‘We know in our experience working on campaigns against police brutality that we are not alone saying that police presence compromises our feeling of physical & emotional safety.’ 

The lengthy caption was written below a photo with writing in Spanish that says: ‘Talk to your neighbors, not the police’. 

The post also included Facebook and Yelp reviews from people criticizing them for turning away the officer, who is the president of the Latino Police Officers Association of Alameda County. The coffee shop scrawled the words ‘Not my president’ and ‘sorry not sorry’ across the images of the complaints. 

Below the pictures, the post went on to say:

OPDs recent attempts to enlist officers of color and its short term touting of fewer officer involved shootings does not reverse or mend its history of corruption, mismanagement, and scandal, nor a legacy of blatant repression. The facts are that poc (people of color), women, and queer police are complicit in upholding the same law and order that routinely criminalizes and terrorizes black and brown and poor folks, especially youth, trans, and houseless folks.’

‘For these reasons and so many more, we need the support of the actual community to keep this place safe, not police,’ the shop wrote.

Following the incident, the Oakland Police Officers Association sent a letter to the coffee shop expressing a desire to speak about their policy. The association has yet to receive a response from the owners, ABC reports.

  1. Nothing like biting your nose off to spite your face…When they dial 911, it won’t be a priority call for the Police.

    • MomOfIV . . . . You are right on the money! If some thug were in there with a weapon, and decided to pistol whip the cashier/waitress/waiter . . . is it really plausible that “the community” would rise to the occasion to offer help. The only help I would offer is to call 911, as I am not prepared to deal with any thug.

      As much as these types of individuals really believe that they are “helping and saving their communities,” in actuality they are a danger both to themselves and everyone else. It’s much like something that “looks good on paper, but in the real world is impractical.”

      DCG . . . Good article! It just shows how brain dead those in California really are.

  9. Well, I suppose now that they no longer help the feds they can write off this dive too and go back to smoking crack. I think its perfect. Just let Oakland, San Francisco, LA and the rest completely degenerate into total chaos.

    If I were them I’d just sit across the street laughing if they get held up. Why not? They’ve already established that they’re felons. Sworn peace officers aren’t “allowed” to ignore laws.

    I have to remember that they’re just serving their masters. They are stupid and shameless.

      • Before it was called ICE and was just plain ol’ Immigration and Naturalization services, I went with a friend, she was trying to get some charges against a former boss, anyway she had told INS that her boss had been smuggling in Mexicans from Canada (they put them in totes and luggage- horrible!) to work for slave labor wages in his Chinese restaurant (this is VERY common, and watch for Hepatitis C infections in Chinese restaurants where they employ illegals). They did NOTHING at all. They do not care and still don’t care about illegals in this country. And, this was in the east of the US.

        • When my kids were little I used to take some of my leave time and work in local lumber mills for extra money. They hired a lot of hispanics. Whenever the INS (La Migra) would show up you could see swarms of them running up the hill into the woods.

          I found out that they paid the Mexicans (and Salvadorans, etc.) half of what they paid everyone else. Of course it was illegal in California to hire illegals. Then they caught the Governor, I think it was Grey Davis, with a house staff full of them. He claimed he had no idea.

          Right, who is that stranger speaking Spanish in my house?

          • Wow, I’m surprised they even went to the lumber mill (INS). I guess back then they sort of did their jobs, now they just pretend to work! Oh those elected officials all have illegals working for them, I think they like the fact that they can pay them next to nothing and many do not speak English so they can have conversations around them and they won’t know what they’re talking about.

  10. First off, their “name” is strange. Hasta Muerte? Are they some sort of Santeria practitioners? Until Death? Que extrano. Or are they a front for drug smuggling? Who’d go to a coffee shop named that? Do they specialize in food poisoning too? LOL!
    For their ’emotional safety’, will they serve robbers with a gun in their faces? 🙂
    It’s a great thing that these “progressives” are so discriminatory.
    Funny how it’s OK to be a bigot, as long as you’re a “minority”.

  11. I take this as a sign that the masses of people are firmly ensconced in their normalcy bias and cognitive dissonance, and that it has “boiled over” into this, that coffee shops won’t serve police.
    In other words, “everyone” already fears and loathes the police, so this little bit of petulance is the product of that, and not the other way around.

    So what does this mean?

    It means that the game is just getting started. Because when all hell does break lose, the people will trip all over themselves, regardless of what the police do. In Plain English, the marketplace of people is telling the police “We don’t want you! We don’t need you!” Believe me, they are getting the message: It’s not a Jungian archetype thing—that’s all B.S. But it’s a supply and demand thing, an economic message. Police are getting the message. So when all hell does break lose, they won’t be able to stop the rioting, the killing and all the chaos.
    The Elites are letting things stew just nicely. They never run out of divide-and-conquer with their bag of tricks.

    It shall be this atmosphere, this SPIRIT of enervation and resentment that shall allow the Great Deception to move forward and allow the Anti-Christ to make his appearance. The Newtonian Laws are still in place: For every action there shall be an equal and opposite reaction. The masses of people, being immoral and saying No shall lead to this. Evil shall have its Hour.
    It’s coming.

  12. Well, since 911 is no-longer an option for these morons when it hits the fan, maybe they can call their local crack dealer.

  13. Can you imagine pissing off the cops for no reason if you seriously thought they were as corrupt as the owners claim, and if true, idiotically setting yourself up for a raid where who knows what gets dropped? Who could be that stupid? The owners’ anti-cop accusation seems refuted simply by their saying it. But you never know, and maybe the owners think they can provide cover for drug trafficking by pre-accusing the cops for settling a grudge by dropping the drugs on the patrons.

    • Oddly enough, I agreed with Gov. Wallace that the whole episode WAS a States’ Rights matter, for this reason: The decision to desegregate was a JUDICIAL decision on the Federal level, and although it may have had some MORAL authority, I agreed with Gov. Wallace in that the states should have had their own timelines to comply.
      But when it comes to “sanctuary cities,” it IS a Federal matter, because immigration and citizenship are FEDERAL matters, and Federal Laws already were in force BEFORE the sanctuary city concept took hold in the late 1970’s. It has been largely Federal judges that have attempted to stymie the enforcement of Federal Law.

      We cannot allow the judiciary to pursue advocacy, which is what Earl Warren brought to the Court. It has to be confronted and ended. So, Yes, I would URGE President Trump to send in Federal Marshalls—or even Marines, if necessary—and arrest those judges and elected officials who promote and enforce the breaking of Federal Law, which, at this point, include harboring felons.

  14. ‘Twould be a shame if such an establishment should burn to the ground, with none available to help…

    And those poor cops! Think of it, having to make their own coffee, it’s SO HARD! And expensive to make it yourself! And time-consuming!

    Now that I think of it, why does anyone waste their money buying their java from a coffee shop? My instant costs $3 a month and takes 2 minutes to make… Even before I got lazy, it wasn’t much more to make an espresso. Throw in some fancy creamer and the cost doubles… $6 a month.

  15. It is their prerogative not to serve Cops, if people don’t like it then they should sue the business. The gays did it to bakers, the blacks did it at segregated business and they were successful. So the Cops and their supporters should quit crying and sue…
    The fact that black, Latino and queer cops are complacent in upholding the same law & order on routine crime that is common in their communities is a bunch of bulls**t. In fact white cops give blacks, Latinos more slack then a black or Latino cop. ….

  16. Ya know, sometimes I wonder if some or most of these mainstream news stories are just all faked. It’s possible this whole thing is just there to rile up the masses or something. To pit the police against the citizens and vice versa.
