Police Commissioner explains cops right to arrest Starbucks men - Daily Mail

Description....

Philadelphia's police commissioner is defending officers who arrested two black men at a Starbucks. Videos posted online (right)show the officers handcuffing the men in the downtown establishment on Thursday. A white man in the video is heard saying he was meeting with the men and calls the arrest 'ridiculous'. Commissioner Richard Ross (left) said on Saturday that Starbucks employees called 911 to say the men were trespassing. He said officers were told that the men had come in and asked to use the restroom but were denied because they hadn't bought anything, as he said is company policy. He said they then refused to leave. He said the officers 'did absolutely nothing wrong' and were professional in their conduct toward the individuals but 'got the opposite back.' The two men were placed into handcuffs and escorted out of the video, which is shown in a viral video that has since garnered more than 3.2million views.
