40. Locking them up for 9 hours was on the police

The police should be the ones held accountable. It's easy to pile on Starbucks, but I doubt that they have a racist policy. What they had was a manager who did something horrible, and that manager is no longer with the company.

The police were under no obligation to arrest the 2 men. They could have evaluated the situation, and spoke to the mens friend, as well as the manager who made the call. They didn't do anything to de-escalate the situation. I hope the two men sue the police.

And, fwiw, am not a fan of Starbucks, but also know they are not chick-fil-a.
