Associated Press TEMPE, Ariz. — Starbucks executives have met with a suburban Phoenix police department after six officers were asked to leave one of the company's shops because a customer felt unsafe. Tempe Officers Association President Rob Ferraro says the officers met Monday with the company's leadership and police Chief Sylvia Moir. Ferraro says Starbucks again apologized for the July 4 incident, and the police officers "came away from the meeting feeling heard and respected." Starbucks' executive vice president Rossann Williams reiterated the company's apology in a note to Moir after their talk. The association says the officers were having drinks at a Tempe Starbucks when the barista made the request. The New York Times reports the customer and the officers were all white. The incident sparked calls to boycott Starbucks and examine police brutality.
