    From my Starbucks experience, I've never seen anyone just going there and sitting without ordering something. What this business model allows, is to have just a coffee and sit there for while, not not having nothing at all.

    God. The irony of a liberal institution being protested by liberals is laughable.

    Sounds like the manager was a dickhead, but the cops just did their job.

    I used to work at a popular local cafe, and we dealt with this shit all the time. If people came in and sat without buying anything, after a while, we'd ask them if they'd like a coffee or some food. If they said "no", we'd politely let them know that seating and wifi are generally reserved for customers. If they still refused to buy anything, we'd ask them to leave. In the rare cases during which people refused to leave, we'd call the police, who would escort the person out of the building. No one ever said "no" when cops asked them to leave, so no one was arrested.

    The guys who were arrested didn't do anything wrong, but at the point in which the manager asks them to leave, they should have. They're not martyrs, even if the manager was a dickhead.

    Typical Kong. Have no argument, resort to insults.

    These degenerates are cannibals. Forced sterilization seems appropriate

    It's called having a life and traveling and getting out of the house.

    That being said, if someone asked me to purchase something or leave, I wouldn't be offended. Maybe if they did it with a bitchy tone. I'd still either purchase something or leave, though. I get it.

    LOL. White women are the largest demographic in the US. There are more women than men. There are more whites than any other group by far. White women are eligible for affirmative action. It's simple mathematics that they would be the largest beneficiary. And there is empirical evidence backing that up. Oops, looks like you got caught talking out of your ass again.

    Never been to a Starbucks, but I've certainly been to the sort of independent Cafes which they were supposedly trying to imitate and commercialise.
    If you can't sit down and wait for a mate without being pestered to buy something or asked to move on, that's a fail. Admittedly most of your traditional cafes have outdoor seating and aren't crammed into airports, hospitals and service stations serving "coffee" flavoured slushies.

    Subway and Starbucks have completely different cultures and business models. What you did is appropriate for Subway, but not Starbucks. I've gone to Starbucks for meetings and not ordered anything until the others arrived. And not only am I not considered a nuisance at Starbucks, but they love me there, they give me free stuff and greet me by name.

    Or it could be called being a vagrant with a weak bladder, depending on how you phrase it.

    That is what I am saying, do these people not have a home, an office, a car charger, among other things?

    In my car, I have a charger, my work phone turns into a mobile hotspot, and if for some reason I was in the middle of nowhere, I keep a 30 dollar solar panel USB charger in my trunk, along with my emergency roadside car kit.

    It is 2018 folks. Unless you are poor to a destitute degree, get some accessories, ya bums.

    I picture the manager as Michael Bolton in Office Space, covertly locking his doors as a black walks by.
    I see him deadbolting himself in his office, desk pushed to the door, as he peers through the blinds, quietly speaking to 911 as to not be heard, perspiration glistening on his pasty white skin, other hand on a fire extinguisher.

    When you are flying and traveling across the country you pretty much only have your hotel room and any other available place.

    I can tell you don't travel a whole lot.
