Oakland California Isn’t A Place To People Move To So They Can Retire
No one wakes up, and say’s “I’m moving to Oakland Because It’s Beautiful”! No, Oakland is a third world city that LOVES Antifa, and openly supports violence against police and anyone with a different view of Liberalism.
Recently, a Coffee shop by the name of Hasta Muerte Coffee in Oakland has decided they’re going to refuse service to the one group of people that protects them from any harm, the Oakland Police Department. That’s right. The Hasta Muerte Coffee Shop doesn’t serve the police. Their excuse? Protecting the “Physical, and Emotional Saftey” of their employees and customers. That doesn’t make any sense because the Police are there to do just that. You should feel safe with a Cop in your establishment. This is liberalism at work. They don’t want to respect police but will call them when they need them or someone is harming them. Maybe they should just call a crack-head when someone holds them at gunpoint.
Liberalism is a new kind of cancer that blocks common sense from the brain. It’s disturbing.
From Hasta Muerte Coffee’s Instagram Page:
Last Friday February 16th a police (OPD) entered our shop and was told by one of our worker-owners that “we have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.” Since then, cop supporters are trying to publicly shame us online with low reviews because this particular police visitor was Latino. He broadcasted to his network that he was “refused service” at a local business and now the rumblings are spreading.
We know in our experience working on campaigns against police brutality that we are not alone saying that police presence compromises our feeling of physical & emotional safety. There are those that do not share that sentiment – be it because they have a friend or relative who is a police, because they are white or have adopted the privileges whiteness affords, because they are home- or business- owning, or whatever the particular case may be. If they want to make claims about police being part of the community, or claims that race trumps the badge & gun when it comes to police, they must accept that the burden of proof for such a claim is on them. OPDs recent attempts to enlist officers of color and its short term touting of fewer officer involved shootings does not reverse or mend its history of corruption, mismanagement, and scandal, nor a legacy of blatant repression.
The facts are that poc, women, and queer police are complicit in upholding the same law and order that routinely criminalizes and terrorizes black and brown and poor folks, especially youth, trans, and houseless folks.
For these reasons and so many more, we need the support of the actual community to keep this place safe, not police. Especially in an area faced by drug sales and abuse, homelessness, and toxic masculinity as we see here on this block. We want to put this out to our communities now, in case we end up facing backlash because as we know OPD, unlike the community, has tons of resources, many of which are poured into maintaining smooth public relations to uphold power. It will be no surprise if some of those resources are steered toward discrediting us for not inviting them in as part of the community.
What’s going to happen when someone robs this coffee shop, or burns the place to the ground? Are the owners going to call the police, and ask for help? Probably so. If I were the Oakland Police Department I wouldn’t respond at all. If you’re not going to be supported by the people then why protect them? You’re putting your life on the line for trash like this, and yet you are required to protect them. That isn’t right. To hell with this coffee shop. It’s headed down the drain anyway.
After looking through the shops instagram we realized they’re pro illegal immigration, and Anti Trump. They promote violence against ICE agents, and don’t support any type of law enforcement. These people actually believe they’re safter without Police. I’ve got news for them. In Oakland, you’re never safe without the police.
