You left out the fact that the men were asked to leave several times by employees, who called the police when the men refused to leave. The police also asked the men to simply leave, and they again refused. Leaving the police with NO CHOICE but to remove them, since it is a private business and the owner has the right to have someone removed.You can't just walk into someone's house and sit, so why should you be able to do it in a private business? You want to sit? Go find a park bench.
I didn’t know about that part. I had only heard the side of the story social media is spreading
@OP you and I both lol. I also learned that this is actually Starbucks policy. I seen people tell stories about how they were asked to leave if they wasn't buying anything or using the internet. I think whoever recorded this should have started from the veryyy beginning because I honestly don't know what happened now that more information is being released. All we seen was that they were asked to leave and did nothing to get arrested. Now I am seeing more details released, but Starbucks has acknowledged that this is their policy. In Texas, many Starbucks here will ask you to buy something or leave after a certain period of time. This is why I was confused as to why the police were called in the first place. @bana I agree with you as well, but I don't know what happened before the recording as why the worker called in the first place. This is confusing because more details are being released
yeah it is store policy. that is why I was so confused and wanted to know more of the story.
If you go onto private property and are asked to leave... you leave... period. The problem is entitlement and "you raciss". I have been refused the use of a restroom many times as a non-patron. If I sat in a restaurant and refused to order something I would eventually be asked to leave. I suspect this was an attempt to "win the race lottery."

I heard that they werent paying customers. Loitering is grounds for removal from the premises at the very least.
Police only instagate problems it is up to the public to remove the man from the room
