This post Philadelphia Police Chief Stands By Cops Who Arrested Black Men At Starbucks first appeared on Vibe.
The video, which Philadelphia-based author Melissa DePino posted Thursday, shows at least six Philadelphia police officers arresting the men and placing them in handcuffs without facing any resistance. "Another person in the Starbucks shop also revealed that she had been sitting in Starbucks for the past couple of hours without buying anything".
After the two men were refused the bathroom, they just sat at a table silently and played with their phones as they waited for a friend, Saahene told NBC News.
Both men were released after Starbucks chose not to press charges.
Telegram isn't complying with Russian Federation so the country is blocking them out
In June 2017, Roskomnadzor requested Telegram management to comply with the Russian legislation or face blocking of the messenger. The Telegram messaging app is extensively by Russian Federation authorities, and is very widespread all through the Middle East.
Kenney says he's asked the Commission on Human Relations to examine the company's policies and procedures "including the extent of, or need for, implicit bias training for its employees". "These officers did absolutely nothing wrong". The pair repeatedly refused to leave when politely asked to do so by the employees and officers, he said. The manager wanted police assistance to remove the two men but regretted that the incident escalated into an arrest, the official said.
He apologized for the "disheartening situation in one of our Philadelphia-area stores this past Thursday, that led to a reprehensible outcome".
Another video of the incident shows police telling a man that the two were not "paying customers".
The Philadelphia Police Department's internal affairs unit and the Philadelphia mayor's office are conducting separate investigations into the arrests in response to the outcry over the viral video of the incident making the rounds on social media.
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said he's "very concerned by the incident at Starbucks". "They were called there, for a service, and that service had to do with quelling a disturbance, a disturbance that had to do with trespassing".

"The basis for the call to the Philadelphia police department was wrong", he said.
In an nearly 7-minute clip, the commissioner said a trespassing and disturbance matter led to Starbucks employees calling 911.
The commissioner also stated that he was speaking "as an African American" beyond being the top cop and that he was "very aware of implicit bias". "We don't care", according to Ross's retelling of the police officers' account.
There was no mention of the white man in the video who said he was meeting with the men. "Like all retail establishments in our city, Starbucks should be a place where everyone is treated the same, no matter the color of their skin". "We as minorities have been crying for help have been pushing for social justice, but it's not going to get better until we have the majority standing up for us". Leaders from several organizations attended Sunday's protest at the store, demanding that the manager be fired and thanking the customers in the store who interjected during the arrests.
