Videos of 2 black men ar­rested at Star­bucks in Pa. draw out­rage

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

Videos show­ing two black men hand­cuffed and re­moved from a Philadel­phia Star­bucks have drawn out­rage and prompted a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The Philadel­phia Inquirer re­ported that one clip posted Thurs­day on YouTube shows po­lice talk­ing to the men for sev­eral min­utes be­fore hand­cuff­ing them and es­cort­ing them out. A sec­ond clip shows a white man, who says he was meet­ing with the two, ask­ing po­lice what the men did wrong. He calls their ar­rest “ridicu­lous.” A fe­male voice is heard say­ing, “They didn’t do any­thing.”

Nei­ther Star­bucks nor po­lice would com­ment on what led to the ar­rests. The men have since been re­leased.
