Tempe Police officers asked to leave Starbucks due to triggered snowflake

From NY Post: Starbucks has apologized for the “completely unacceptable” way staff booted six cops from an Arizona store after a customer complained about feeling unsafe around them.

The java giant faced a huge backlash over the actions of staff in Tempe on July 4 — and now the chain has written to the Tempe Police Department to “sincerely apologize.”

“When those officers entered the store and a customer raised a concern over their presence, they should have been welcomed and treated with dignity and the utmost respect by our partners (employees),” wrote Rossann Williams, the chain’s executive vice president for US retail.

“Instead, they were made to feel unwelcome and disrespected, which is completely unacceptable.”

Williams insisted Starbucks has a “deep appreciation” for police, saying, “Our partners rely on your service and welcome your presence, which keeps our stores and the community a safe and welcoming place.”

Williams added, “What occurred in our store on July 4 is never the experience your officers or any customer should have, and at Starbucks, we are already taking the necessary steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again in the future.”

Multnomah County to pay $100k to woman who claimed that “Blue Lives Matter” demeans “Black Lives Matter”

The “demeaning” flag…

Excerpts from The Guardian story:

An Oregon county has agreed to pay $100,000 to a black employee who alleged she was harassed after asking that a Blue Lives Matter flag not be displayed in her office.

In a lawsuit against Multnomah county filed in January, Karimah Guion-Pledgure said the flag demeaned the Black Lives Matter movement, the Oregonian/OregonLive reported. She said she was harassed after she and other black co-workers complained.

Guion-Pledgure had worked for the department of community justice since 2011 as a corrections technician. She originally sought $420,000. The settlement, reached on Thursday, was first reported by an alternative bi-weekly newspaper, the Portland Mercury.

Guion-Pledgure’s lawsuit said Blue Lives Matter “co-opts” Black Lives Matter and “repurposes it to shift focus to law enforcement – a chosen profession, not a racial identity – and thus denigrates, dilutes, and demeans the purpose of the Black Lives Matter movement”.

After the probation officer’s flag had been up for more than six months, Guion-Pledgure erected an “equity wall” that displayed photos of minorities killed by police, the suit stated. Managers told her to take down the photos, the lawsuit said, but she refused because the Blue Lives Matter flag remained.

The same day, Guion-Pledgure found two notes affixed to her equity wall reading “Thanks a lot” and “Bitch”, according to the suit.

Guion-Pledgure alleged that her supervisor did not require the flag to be taken down and said the conflict caused her extreme stress and health issues.

A week later, managers responded with a rule that all personal photos displayed needed to be smaller than 5in-by-7in, according to the suit.
Managers are developing a policy on personal displays of photos and other items, a Multnomah county spokeswoman said.

As part of the agreement, Guion-Pledgure had to resign by Friday. She can reapply for a county job.

“She’s disappointed that she has to leave there and that they couldn’t make it a safe and welcoming work environment,” said her attorney, Ashlee Albies. “They say they’re working on that, and we hope they really are.”

Weeks before illegal alien killed Kittitas County Deputy Sheriff, WA state demorat senator proposed bill to expand sanctuary state rules

Lisa Wellman: Working hard to protect illegal aliens in WA state

Demorats care more about protecting illegal aliens than they do their constituents. The proof is in their actions.

On March 19, Kittitas County Deputy Sheriff Ryan Thompson was killed by an illegal alien in Washington State. Thompson is permanently separated from his wife and three children.

Washington State is already a sanctuary state. Yet the current law, signed by demorat Governor Jay Inslee in 2017, apparently doesn’t go far enough to protect illegal aliens.

Washington State Senator Lisa Wellman represents 41st Legislative District which includes Mercer Island, Bellevue, Newcastle and parts of Issaquah, Sammamish, and Renton. Read about her background here.

She sponsored SB5497 – the Keep Washington Working Act – to “focus agencies on people’s needs – not immigration.”

Because heaven forbid we follow federal immigration laws to protect American citizens.

The bill would limit the amount of information that state and local agencies share with federal immigration officials, and joint immigration enforcement activities. The bill now goes to the state House of Representatives for consideration.

Apparently the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs support this bill. The association stated, “Our membership feels strongly that every person in all communities across our state should feel safe contacting law enforcement, particularly those who have been a victim of crime.”

I wonder how the association feels about their support for this bill now that one of their fellow brothers was a murder crime victim by an illegal alien?

From Wellman’s statement about this bill:

“In addition to imposing limits on information sharing and joint immigration enforcement activities, the Keep Washington Working Act requires that state agencies provide services regardless of a person’s citizenship or immigration status. Agencies would develop and implement secure information systems to use when storing information about people who use state services and facilities.

A statewide Keep Washington Working workgroup would work within the state Department of Commerce to develop strategies to expand immigrants’ career pathways within Washington state.

We need local law enforcement to do its job effectively. That means keeping communities safe, and we need all Washington residents to feel safe so they can focus on school and work,” said Rep. Lilian Ortiz-Self, who introduced the House companion bill. “This legislation helps students do better in school and workers do their jobs knowing they are valued and respected. The result will be communities that flourish and businesses that grow.”

Blah, blah, blah. The word salads these demorats concoct to justify their actions is amazing.

Why can’t bureaucrats focus on people’s needs (especially Americans’ need for safety) while enforcing immigration laws that effectively allow law enforcement to identify and capture criminal illegal aliens?

That is a rhetorical question, of course, because I know that liberal logic and pandering is not designed to make sense.

California professor reprimanded after saying police “need to be killed”

The good professor…UC Davis Dept of English photo

He sounds like such a nice guy…

From Fox News: An English and comparative literature professor in California was reprimanded after an interview quoted him as saying police “need to be killed,” according to reports.

The California Aggie also reported the tweets of UC Davis professor Joshua Clover, who is also a poet:

I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age #letsnotmakemore” — tweeted on Nov. 27, 2014.

“I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?” — tweeted on Dec. 27, 2014.

“People think that cops need to be reformed. They need to be killed.” — published in an interview on Jan. 31, 2016.

The university said in a statement: “The UC Davis administration condemns the statement of Professor Clover to which you refer. It does not reflect our institutional values, and we find it unconscionable that anyone would condone much less appear to advocate murder. … We support law enforcement, and the UC Davis Police Department and Chief Joe Farrow have been and remain critical partners to our community.”

Clover, whose work focuses on critical and political theory, political economy, poetry, poetics and Marxism, wrote to The Aggie, saying, “I think we can all agree that the most effective way to end any violence against officers is the complete and immediate abolition of the police.”

Clover added he would “direct any further questions to the family of Michael Brown.”

Gun control, Chiraq style: Man who fired gun & linked to deaths of two Chicago Police officers could be released soon

Perp Edward Brown: Just wanted to see if the pistol worked….or something

The perp said he “found” a pistol and “wanted to see if it worked.”

The perp is “hanging in there” after the two officers lost their lives.

Despicable.

From MyFoxChicago: The man being held in connection with the deaths of the two Chicago police officers who were killed by a train could soon be released from jail, as a community group says it’s helping to get Edward Brown released on bond.

It was four weeks ago Monday night that Brown was arrested for alleging firing the gunshots which led officers Conrad Gary and Eduardo Marmolejo onto the railroad tracks where they were hit by a train.

Brown is still in jail, needing $20,000 for release on bond. “He’s hanging in there,” said defense attorney Frank Koustoros. “You know, nobody wants to be in jail, but he’s hanging in there.”

It looks like Brown could be released very soon.

“We are planning to post bond this week, yes,” said Sharlyn Grace of Chicago Community Bond Fund. “We’re just waiting on a couple more things to come through.”

The Chicago Community Bond Fund uses donated dollars to help defendants post bond and remain free while fighting their cases. “When a case like this that’s high profile comes up, we know it’s even more important than usual that somebody really enjoys the presumption of innocence,” said Grace.

Brown was back in court Monday where prosecutors revealed he’s been indicted on the two weapons charges for which he was arrested.

Members of Brown’s family, including his mother, were in the courtroom, but through his attorney, they declined to talk about the case.

“He’s not alone in this world,” said Koustoros. “He has a lot of love and support from his family and friends.”
The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) wanted a felony murder charge.

“We are continually disappointed with the Kim Foxx administration when the police are the victims of crime,” said an FOP spokesperson.

The spokesperson added the FOP will be shocked and disappointed if Brown gets out on bond.

Comedian vows to wear fur until cops stop killing black people

You’ll always find grandiose egos in Hollyweird.

From People: Tiffany Haddish is making a bold statement as she protests police brutality. The actress, 39, shared via Instagram that a fan gifted her her own fur vest after Haddish expressed interest in the garment. And now that she has one, Haddish doesn’t plan on taking it off until police brutality, particularly against black men and women, is addressed.

“I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting,” she says in the video. “I’m going to wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry PETA, don’t be mad at me, be mad at the police.”

She continues, “See how that go? Because people are important. And so are the animals – to keep me warm.”

Though it’s not clear whether Haddish is just joking, as she has a smile on her face the whole time, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) took to the comments section in her post to urge her to find another way to protest.

“We love you, Tiffany, and as an animal rights organization, we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animals,” the organization commented. “We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals, but is kind to all.”

The video came just the day before Haddish bombed her New Year’s Eve stand-up set in Miami. Although Haddish already tweeted after the show that she wishes it had gone “better,” the star told TMZ on Wednesday that she didn’t do her best because of being overworked.

“See, your brain is an interesting thing when you don’t get the proper amount of rest,” she told the outlet “You gotta understand, I worked almost every single day last year. I’ve only been home, I was doing the math yesterday, a grand total of 40 days. I slept in my bed a grand total of 28 days the whole year. And I worked all the way up literally until New Year’s.”

ICE deports Kazakhstani man convicted of concealing evidence for Boston Marathon bombers

Bye, bye you terrorist supporter!

Our country and the safety of our citizens matter. Good riddance!

From ICE press release dated 11/01/18:

DALLAS — Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a Kazakhstani man on Oct. 23 who was previously convicted for concealing criminal evidence for one of the Boston Marathon bombers.

Dias Muratovich Kadyrbayev, 24, a citizen of Kazakhstan, was convicted June 2, 2015, of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice for removing and disposing of incriminatory items from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room. Tsarnaev was later convicted and sentenced to death for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three innocent bystanders, and subsequently two police officers.

Kadyrbayev’s crimes are considered aggravated felonies under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in federal prison at the Federal Correctional Institute in Big Spring, Texas (FCI Big Spring). Under federal law, aliens convicted of an aggravated felony are subject to removal and barred from returning to the United States.

Kadyrbayev departed the U.S. by commercial air on Oct. 23 and was released from ICE custody on Oct. 24 at the Almaty International Airport, in Almaty, Kazakhstan, without incident.

On Oct. 13, 2016, ERO Dallas lodged an immigration detainer with the Bureau of Prisons on Kadyrbayev and on Feb. 15, 2018, served him with a final administrative order of removal.

On Aug. 29, 2018, FCI Big Spring transferred custody of Kadyrbayev to ERO Dallas at the Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas. Kadyrbayev remained in ICE custody until he was removed under ICE escort on Oct. 23.

Detroit food truck owner refuses to serve law enforcement officers

Am I to assume that the food truck owner will not call the police if she is robbed or raped in her truck? Wouldn’t want her to feel “unsafe.”

The owner of the food truck identifies as a brown queer person. She pulled out two cards for this fight!

From Fox News: A food truck owner in Detroit, Michigan says she won’t serve police officers or other law enforcement officials because she, along with the “majority” of her customers, “do not feel safe around law enforcement agents.”

The owner of Rocky’s Road Brew, Rocky Coronado, wrote on Facebook Friday that she is “well within [her] rights to refuse service to law enforcement agents,” such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security, and local police officers.

The truck owner detailed in a separate post that she turned away two officers on Friday who were “in a unmarked, black suburban with tinted windows both with bulletproof vests and badges.”

The officers, according to Coronado, circled back around with a third person after being told the food truck was closed, and asked why they weren’t served.

“Not feeling confrontational, I meekly told her that I don’t serve law enforcement,” the owner wrote.

The officer allegedly said she was with the Michigan Humane Society, and “quickly became belligerent.”

According to Coronado, one officer took photos of her and other customers, and the officers’ “false account of what happened” was posted online. “The posts went viral and I decided to post why I do not serve law enforcement agents,” the owner wrote.

The Michigan Humane Society did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

The Facebook post said that “because of the madness” and backlash the posts have received, Rocky’s Road Brew temporarily will be closed.
