I am TOTALLY OUTRAGED!!! I am now calling for a TOTAL BOYCOTT of the "Red & Black Cafe" in Portland, Oregon. The jerk owners kicked a police officer out of their cafe...simply because he is a policeman (and because the owners are Anarchists)! What a bunch of BS! :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

Please click on the link, read the story, and you will see what I am writing about.

i am sure that somewhere in there is a sign that says, "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone". Whatever...crazy people are the reason i avoid Multnomah County as a whole.

Keep Portland Weird...that is fine with me. As long as it stays in Portland.

The fact they sold him the coffee first, then kicked him out makes them even bigger scumbags!

I have never been there but it makes me wonder about who their customers are. To bad we should all be treated equal unless we have a state or federal dissability.

Unfortunately, there have been hundreds of reviews of the cafe and business has increased according to Google......guess they are reaping the benefits of stupidity.....makes me want to go get a Big Mac and sit and enjoy lunch on their front sidewalk....:D

Let's all be a bit cautious about how quick we are to fire OFF our feelings. Keep in mind that what these people did, while reprehensible to most of us, was simply exercising their inalienable rights as Americans. Rights granted to them under the Constitution of the United States. Rights of any business owner in free market/capitalist society. The fact that they requested that the Police Office leave their establishment and that he respected their wishes and left is what is the key here. If you insist that they did wrong by simply asking a cop to leave, just because it is wrong to ask a cop to leave, then you, in some way, support socialism and, worse yet, totalitarianism. There was a faction of Americans many years ago that exercised their right (that they did not have at that point in history) to refuse entry by the (so-called) Police. these same people eventually took up arms against their government and thus was born these United States and the very Constitution that these "scandalous money hungry vegans"are protected under today.

Let's just give props to Officer Crooker for being the bigger man here and graciously respecting the wishes of the proprietors and leaving. Probably with his head held high. I am sure he would want you to stop in there and get a cup of coffee, and let them know that you support the Portland Police Bureau, and their decisions to exercise their rights.

Satan has left the building... Secreast. Out.

I don't get it. Did they kick the cop out because they smelled pork?

I agree with DY wholeheartedly but I disagree with this company's choice. I also reserve the right to not visit their establishment.
Did someone say it's time to go fishing???? Let's go!!!

I couldn't agree more. Did anyone read the original story when it first came out? The cafe is one of the few spots that welcome the homeless inside. They see it as a refuge and are extremely distrustful of the police. They need a place to be safe and not be looked down on. They have chosen the cafe as their "home' because it offers a warm cup of coffee and a meal without any harassment. The owner explained it to the relatively new officer who was trying to get to know to the locals and guess what? The officer accepted it as it was meant and like dude young mentioned, was gracious about it and left without quarrel. I see no problem here unless you have no experience with homelessness and are too well OFF to consider the possibility of it happening to you. I'm glad they worked it out.
ps
I've been blessed enough to always have a place to live. My brother was homeless for three years.

Shame on you! Knowingly posting that comment when you know for a fact that we have several retired officers as well as active officers is an insult to quite a few members. Next time you meet Iriishrover let me know how he feels about your comment.

It was a funny play on words.

I do not find it offensive at all, rather just a cleverly played comment, on a somewhat overblown situation. I fully support both the armed services, and service minded individuals in general, but see no need in this situation to continue upping the tension, in an already needlessly tense situation.

C'mon now Barb. I think he meant no real harm by that comment. It was kind of sharp, what, with the double entandre (of sorts). I think that even the Po-Po can understand that that little knick name is stuck like glue. If we can't laugh at our selves, well, you know. So says the Stoopid, WOP, Dego.

DAMN! Beat to the punch! Drat! Foiled again.
