Oakland Coffee Shop Won’t Serve Police For ‘Safety Of Our Customers’

The Hasta Muerte Coffee shop in Oakland is refusing to serve police officers for the “physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.”

KCRA notes that a sergeant, who was refused service, said he was surprised that the employee-owned cafe would not serve him.

The coffee shop workers/owners refused to comment to KCRA, but  they reportedly wrote on Instagram in Spanish (translated):

Talk to your neighbors, not the police… We have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.

The Oakland Police Officers Association is asking for a dialogue with the coffee shop.
