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