9. No. I'm telling you there isn't a shop in this country that doesn't ...

have a sign that says "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone" and as long as it is a refusal that can be demonstrated not to be enforced in a discriminatory manner there's nothing wrong with it.

The police have no history as a discriminated class in this nation, if anything absolutely the opposite as most establishments offer free coffee and donuts or the equal and discounts to police in uniform.

Don't you feel discriminated over that free coffe and sinkers you'll never get?

The refusal of service was about police violence that even the mayor of Phoenix has condemned as non professional and dangerous to those the police are here ostensibly protect. And this is why the owner of that shop used his right of refusal to eliminate the stress to his clientele caused by jump booted, armed, paramilitary uniformed police from his shop after the recent incidents in metro area.

I'm an old white straight male vet and even I get it.

Other than that ONE incident describe the discrimination you see towards cops.

Let me show show you the real discrimination shown to the undocumented, the LTGB, women, Poc, the homeless every single day. I don't feel for those cops, their lives are good and in twenty years they get to pension out and live a wonderful life. The young and mostly black males shot down in the streets unarmed and unresisting will not.

Until tensions ease there will be no service of police in my shop gratis or cash.

Now be honest: what is your real concern?

Added: Don't you have any sense at all that you are trivializing what discrimination really is?????
