Police Office Kicked Out of local Cafe' for being a cop

Posted June 4th, 2010 by Witzbold

Portland Police Officer Jim Crooker said he was embarrassed after a manager kicked him out of the Red and Black Cafe in Southeast Portland -- just because he was a uniformed officer.

Contempt of cop averted

I wonder what would have happened if the costumed man refused to leave? It takes a lot of guts to confront an armed member of an organization that has shown no reservations on the use of force against peaceful people, property rights be damned. I can only imagine how bad things could have gone if this officer had been more than just slightly embarrassed, or was someone who had not merely been "on the force" for two years. Thankfully, he abided the property owner's request respectfully. He may not yet be corrupted by his petty power. Get out while you still have some humanity left.

What a liberty-hostile environment. Some of them really believe police privilege should override freedom of association.
