Starbucks shop boots police officers because customer ‘did not feel safe’ around them: reports

Some police officers in Tempe, Ariz., say they were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop on the Fourth of July because a customer complained they “did not feel safe” with the cops present, according to reports.

Five officers were drinking coffee at the Starbucks location prior to their shift beginning when a barista asked them to move out of the complaining customer’s line of sight or else leave, the Tempe Officers Association wrote in a series of Twitter messages.

Rob Ferraro, president of the police union, told FOX 10 of Phoenix that such treatment of police officers seems to be happening more often these days.

“It’s become accepted to not trust or to see police and think that we’re not here to serve you, and again, it goes back to — we take great pride of the level of customer service we provide to citizens, and to be looked at as feeling unsafe when you have law enforcement around you is somewhat perplexing to me,” Ferraro told the station in a phone interview.

The police union also posted a series of Twitter messages about the incident.

“This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening,” the union wrote. “While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.”

The union said it did not blame the Starbucks corporate office, adding it looked forward “to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue.”

Earlier Friday, the union tweeted a parody of the Starbucks logo, with the words “Dump Starbucks” and the image of a hand dumping the contents of a cup of coffee.

A Starbucks spokesman told the Arizona Republic the company was still gathering details about what happened.

“We have a deep respect for the Tempe Police and their service to the community,” spokesman Reggie Borges told the newspaper. “We’ve reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.”

Neither the barista nor the customer who allegedly complained were identified. Starbucks would not say whether the barista would be disciplined in connection with the case.

In 2018, an incident at a Starbucks shop in Philadelphia made headlines when two black men who were waiting for a business colleague inside the shop were arrested for trespassing. The Philadelphia police commissioner later apologized to the men and Starbucks closed some 8,000 locations for part of a business day to conduct “racial bias training.”

A magnitude-6.9 earthquake hit Southern California on Friday evening — just a day after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake that was the largest temblor in the region in two decades.

The newest earthquake’s epicenter was about 10 miles north northeast of Ridgecrest, Calif., about 150 northeast of Los Angeles.

The Ridgecrest area has had more than 100 aftershocks since Thursday’s earthquake and experts warn there could be more to come.

Courtiers try to avoid ‘diary clashes’ with Cambridges, Sussexes to prevent ‘competition,’ royal expert claims

With the Cambridges and Sussexes set to go on royal tours this fall, the palace courtiers have tried to do what they can to prevent the couples’ schedules from overlapping in order to avoid any “competition,” a royal expert claims.

Last week, it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be heading to Africa on their next official royal tour with newborn son Archie Harrison, while, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be visiting Pakistan.

“We are still waiting for the dates so we don’t know if there will be an overlap,” Katie Nicholl told The Sun in an interview published on Friday.

ARCHIE HAS BROUGHT PEACE BETWEEN WILLIAM AND HARRY AFTER ROYAL ‘RIFT’ OVER MEGHAN MARKLE, ROYAL EXPERT SAYS 

“I would expect the palace would have tried to have planned it so there weren’t be too many clashes as the Cambridges will be putting the spotlight on Pakistan and the Sussexes will be shining their light on Africa,” she explained.

“I think that’s why where couriers can avoid diary clashes they will, because they’ll be keen to avoid any sense of competition between the couples,” Nicholl added.

However, the “Harry and Meghan: Life, Loss, and Love” author said that with the fab four’s recent split of their royal households and joint charity, The Royal Foundation, scheduling conflicts are bound to happen.

QUEEN ELIZABETH ‘DOES NOT HAVE AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP’ WITH KATE MIDDLETON, CLAIMS ROYAL EXPERT 

“With two very busy working royal couples, inevitably they will be away doing tours and engagements and official duties that will at times clash in the diary,” she noted. “I think that’s just the way it’s going to be.

“The whole point of splitting the household and splitting the foundations is so they can each pursue their own trajectories,” Nicholl continued. “What courtiers will be hoping is that aren’t going to be any future clashes or conflict of interest or the chance to pit one couple against the other.”

PRINCE HARRY, PRINCE WILLIAM ‘HAVE HAD A RIFT,’ NOT MEGHAN MARKLE, KATE MIDDLETON, SAYS ROYAL FILMMAKER

On Monday, Nicholl revealed that Archie — the newest member of the British royal family — has brought some peace to the palace, where life wasn’t always so blissful for former American actress Markle and her in-laws.

A friend of Princes William and Harry told Nicholl that the arrival of Markle’s firstborn has further healed relations between the siblings.

“There was, however, a genuine rift between the princes that had been brewing since Harry’s engagement to Meghan [in late 2017],” Nicholl told Vanity Fair. “According to a friend of the brothers, they fell out after William voiced his concerns that Harry’s relationship with Meghan was moving too quickly.

“’William had concerns and Harry resented that,’ says the friend,” continued Nicholl. “’Harry also felt that William and Kate hadn’t made enough effort with Meghan.

She added: “At one stage the situation between Harry and William was so strained that they were not on speaking terms, but things have been ‘much better’ since Archie’s arrival.”

Utah teachers attend firearms drills to prepare for active shooters

Westlake Legal Group AP19184665744920 Utah teachers attend firearms drills to prepare for active shooters Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/west/utah fox-news/us fox-news/great-outdoors/shooting fox news fnc/us fnc e5067717-558d-588c-8ae9-d99f103eb3c6 article

At least 30 Utah teachers banded together for a series of training sessions in which police instructed them on using guns in response to an active-shooter situation.

The training, held in a warehouse that looks like a school but also functions as a shooting range, showed teachers how to disarm a gunman, where to shoot on the body and how to properly aim and unload a firearm. Officers leading the training also went over de-escalation techniques, self-defense and medical responses such as how to pack a wound and tie a tourniquet on a child.

Utah law allows licensed gun owners to bring their concealed weapons in public schools, and is one of several states in the country, including Florida and Texas, to do so.

BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE LOSES ACCREDITATION AFTER SCHOOL MASSACRE, FLORIDA AIRPORT SHOOTING: REPORT

“If teachers are going to be bringing firearms into schools, let’s make sure they know how to handle them safely,” Utah County Sheriff Mike Smith said.

About half the teachers brought their own handguns to the shooting range and many who attended the sessions — which have become increasingly popular and now has a waitlist to attend — felt reassured by the training.

“I know how to protect myself and my students now; I know what to expect if the worst happens,” Nancy Miramontes, a school psychologist, told The Associated Press.

At least 39 states require lockdown, active-shooter or similar safety drills, according to the Education Commission of the States. Other states have less explicit requirements or leave it to districts to decide. Utah requires its elementary schools to conduct at least one safety drill each month, and its secondary schools to have detailed emergency response plans.

Despite the increasing popularity of such programs, some school safety experts disagree with a plan that involves arming teachers.

“Are police tasking teachers to perform a law enforcement responsibility by arming them to protect others? We have to be cautious of what we ask people to do in these traumatic, stressful situations,” said Ken Trump, a school safety expert with the National School Safety and Security Services consulting firm.

Explosions cause partial collapse of dorm at University of Nevada, Reno

Classes were canceled and several people suffered minor injuries Friday after a mechanical failure caused an explosion and the partial collapse of a student residence hall at the University of Nevada, Reno campus, authorities said.

Students were being evacuated from Argenta Hall and authorities were trying to determine if the building was still structurally sound following reports of loud blasts coming from the building’s basement.

The first explosion occurred around 1 p.m. and was followed by a larger explosion, the school said in a statement. The Reno Gazette-Journal reported six people were treated for injuries at the scene and released, and two were taken to a hospital and also released.

“We are confident — and lucky — that today, with a light day coming after a holiday, that we really didn’t have anybody in those halls,” university police chief Todd Renwick told the paper.

The dorms are not full during the summer, but there were still residents inside the hall, student Raven Green told The Associated Press. She was in her room watching Netflix when she heard a loud boom and felt the building shake.

“It was very scary,” she said.

She said she climbed over doors and pieces of drywall to reach the stairs, which were broken. She was eventually evacuated.

Photos of the building show blown out windows and damage on multiple floors. Sophomore Raymond Floyd heard what sounded like a loud door slam as he was studying for a calculus final across the street in Peavine Hall.

About 10 minutes after being evacuated, he heard a much bigger noise.

“I could see smoke and shrapnel in the air and parts of the roof flying off,” Floyd said.

Gov. Steve Sisolak tweeted his office was aware of the situation and have offered the school support.

“My office is aware of the situation at @unevadareno and have offered support on the ground. We will continue to closely monitor all updates. For those on or near campus, please stay clear of areas where first responders are working on the scene,” he posted.

Fox News’sJuan Williams says former Vice President Joe Biden is in “big trouble” after the Democratic presidential frontrunner said he was wasn’t ready for Sen. Kamala Harris‘ attacks during last week’s debate.

“He gave the impression he wasn’t ready to be challenged. … If that’s true, boy, that’s big trouble. He should have known as the frontrunner, there were long knives ready for him,” Williams said on “The Five.”

BIDEN AND HARRIS CAMPAIGNS ENGAGE IN NASTY TWITTER FEUD OVER BUSING

In an interview with CNN, Biden told host Chris Cuomo that he “wasn’t prepared” for Harris’ attack.

“I was prepared for them to come after me, but I wasn’t prepared for the person coming at me the way she came at me. She knew Beau [Biden] and she knows me,” Biden told CNN.

Williams praised the California senator for her performance.

“That’s how other people are going to rise and challenge him as the frontrunner and that’s exactly what Kamala Harris did, she took command of the stage and that’s the reasons we have seen her jump ahead in the polls,” Williams said.

Marc Thiessen: Critics of Trump’s July 4 ‘salute’ had ‘stupidest freakout of all time’

The collective outcry by President Trump’s critics over his Independence Day “Salute to America” was overblown, according to Marc Thiessen.

Previous presidents have used the July 4 holiday to give speeches and hold events, Thiessen said Friday on “The Story.”

“Of all the stupid freakouts that we’ve had since DT was elected, this has got to be the stupidest of all time,” Thiessen claimed.

“There are a lot of people with egg on their face today.

TRUMP DEFIES OMINOUS PREDICTIONS WITH NONPARTISAN JULY 4TH SALUTE TO AMERICAN SPIRIT

“The resistance told us that if we elected Donald Trump, there’ll be tanks on the streets, and it was like it was finally happening.”

The former speechwriter to ex-President George W. Bush said Presidents Woodrow Wilson, John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton and others have given similar addresses at places like Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

“It’s the job of the president to give a speech on the Fourth of July,” he said.

“They said it’s going to be a partisan speech, and millions of Americans tuned in and were wondering what the heck they were talking about. It was a great speech. It was moving to see all these fighter jets flying, the B-2 bomber flying over the nation’s capital. It was amazing. These people are in a hole, and they keep digging.”

Trump’s opinion on UFOs: Nope — but you never know

Does President Trump believe the truth is out there?

Apparently not.

During an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Trump, who has all our information about extraterrestrials and UFOs at his disposal, said he isn’t convinced UFOs exist.

But he’s keeping an open mind.

UFOS REMAIN ELUSIVE DESPITE DECADES OF STUDY

“Well, I don’t want to really get into it too much.  But personally, I tend to doubt it,” he told Carlson. “I’m not a believer, but you know, I guess anything is possible.”

Carlson was pressing the president on a recent briefing he had regarding the Navy pilots who reported seeing “strange objects” flying at hypersonic speeds and emitting “no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes.” Last week, the Defense Department also held a briefing with Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., as well as two other senators as part of an apparent effort to communicate with politicians about naval encounters with unidentified aircraft.

“I mean, you have people that swear by it, right?” Trump mused.

“And pilots have come in and they said — and these are pilots that have — not pilots that are into that particular world, but we have had people saying that they’ve seen things.”

Carlson also asked the president about a claim made by a government official who said U.S. is in possession of UFO wreckage at a facility on an Air Force Base. Trump said he hadn’t heard about it but had seen the story covered on Carlson’s show.

“I don’t assume it’s correct.  But, I have an open mind, Tucker,” he continued.

Paul McCartney reveals he ‘cried for a year’ after wife Linda’s death: ‘It seemed the only thing to do’

Grieving the death of a loved one is rarely easy and many people deal with death in a multitude of various ways.

Such was the case for Paul McCartney who opened up about the death of his wife Linda McCartney — formerly Eastman — to breast cancer in 1998 at age 56.

PAUL MCCARTNEY SHARES SEXUALLY EXPLICIT STORY INVOLVING BEATLES BANDMATE JOHN LENNON

“I think I cried for about a year on and off. You expect to see them walk in, this person you love, because you are so used to them. I cried a lot,” McCartney told the BBC in an article published Thursday. “It was almost embarrassing except it seemed the only thing to do.”

The Beatles bass guitarist and crooner married Eastman in 1969 and eventually, the pair formed the band Wings, two years following the Beatles’ disbanding. Eastman was diagnosed with breast cancer three years before she died.

McCartney, 77, also tragically lost his mother, Mary McCartney to breast cancer in 1956 — she was 47-years-old and he was just 14 at the time of her death. He would lament the death of his mother in his conversation with the British news outlet.

“Both my mum and Linda died of breast cancer. We had no idea what my mum had died of because no-one talked about it. She just died,” McCartney said of losing his mother. “The worse thing about that was everyone was very stoic, everyone kept a stiff upper lip and then one evening you’d hear my dad crying in the next room. It was tragic because we’d never heard him cry.”

Though Eastman was an American musician, she also worked as a professional photographer to celebrities and other musicians.

Her photography works will be displayed at the Linda McCartney Retrospective at Kelgrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, according to People – citing the BBC. The exhibit opens July 5, 2019 and runs until January 2020.
