Hasta Muerte Coffee - More craziness from Oakland, CA

Just saw this instagram posting from a local coffee shop regarding an incident in which a Police Officer who happens to be latino as well was refused service:

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bfhk_ZHAIMU/?


Here's the narrative in the posting:

hastamuertecoffeeLast Friday February 16th a police (OPD) entered our shop and was told by one of our worker-owners that “we have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.” Since then, 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.
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. There are those that do not share that sentiment - be it because they have a friend or relative who is a police, because they are white or have adopted the privileges whiteness affords, because they are home- or business- owning, or whatever the particular case may be. If they want to make claims about police being part of the community, or claims that race trumps the badge & gun when it comes to police, they must accept that the burden of proof for such a claim is on them. 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, 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. Especially in an area faced by drug sales and abuse, homelessness, and toxic masculinity as we see here on this block. We want to put this out to our communities now, in case we end up facing backlash because as we know OPD, unlike the community, has tons of resources, many of which are poured into maintaining smooth public relations to uphold power. It will be no surprise if some of those resources are steered toward discrediting us for not inviting them in as part of the community.

Thus far, they're catching a ton of flak but they're standing by their stupidity. The other amazing part is there's actually 643 thus far who support their position. Response times in Oakland are pretty bad but I suspect it'll be even slower for these folks if they ever need assistance from law enforcement.

Hard to argue with that statement. Law and order bad. You heard it from a barista in Oakland first.

Seems like a good opening for uh, someone enterprising to open a coffee place across the street:

Haven Coffee: grab a shot without being shot. White male cops welcomed.

If I hear someone say 'toxic masculinity' one more time.......

Spot on! He/she/ze should know. That 5 year degree in "emotion" and 1800th century lesbian butterfly poetry is paying off.

God forbid "toxic masculinity." It might actually catch on and become infectious causing males to actually act like men.

Well, I guess the pansy brigade can't deal with men. I bet they don't even sell straight-up black coffee because it's too harsh.

Is, “talk with your neighbors not the police” a decent translation?

I admire their courage in their convictions. I expect that instead of calling the police in an emergency, they'll find another, less violent, way to solve their problem.

Not something to admit in public. His coffee is outstanding. And that is coming from a guy who has drank the best in Central America and central Africa.
