Police chief Johnny O'Mara called 'PIG' wants Starbucks to forgive barista

On the morning of the Thanksgiving Day, a police officer of Oklahoma chose to take the emergency dispatchers to his local Starbucks and ordered them drinks.

The Kiefer police officer went to the Starbucks in Glenpool on Thanksgiving day to pick up five drinks, CNN affiliate KTUL reported.

Chief O'Mara known as the espresso shop and staff there provided to "exchange the espresso with a appropriate mark".

O & # 39; Mara wrote that he called the store and "they said they would be happy to & # 39; replace the coffee with a correct label & # 39;", said the Facebook post.

O'Mara wrote the incident serves as "another tiny pinprick into the heart of men and women who are asking themselves more often: 'Why am I doing this?'"

But, primarily based on the manager, the mark was endemic of a bigger societal say.

"Just pour the coffee, please", wrote the police chief.

Experts hope to revolutionise diagnosis of the potentially fatal disease by creating an at-home collection kit. They juxtaposed the home collection samples with the one collected after digital rectal examination.


"It's another tiny symptom and a almost indiscernible shout from a contemptuous, roaring and riotous segment of a misanthropic society that vilifies those who stand for what's right and glorifies the very people who would usher in the destruction of the social fabric", O'Mara wrote.

A Starbucks rep called the incident "absolutely unacceptable" and said the barista has been suspended pending an investigation.

O'Mara couldn't be reached on Thursday. "We are deeply sorry and have apologized directly to the officer who experienced this". We have also apologised directly to him and connected with the Chief of the Kiefer Police Department as well to express our remorse.

The company will meet with Kiefer police to discuss ways to work together, including by jointly hosting a Coffee with a Cop event at Starbucks for local law enforcement to meet with baristas and community members to discuss "the critical role dispatchers and police officers play in keeping our communities safe", the joint statement said.

Kiefer has a population of fewer than 1,700 people, according to Census figures.

"That is really heartbreaking, especially knowing that these cups were going to dispatchers", said O & # 39; Mara to the station.
