Many small businesses like to have police officers as clientele because their presence is a deterrent to would-be criminals, but a Portland, Ore. coffee shop owner threw a cop out of his shop because he feared the officer would start a game of Taser tag.
Fox 12 Oregon reports the shop owner said “If there’s a police officer there, I wouldn’t feel safe in that situation. I would feel worried that the officer might Tase the person or potentially shoot them for having a mental health issue.”
The owner is also an avowed anarchist — a philosophy that doesn’t fit in very well with the concept of police officers.
