No offense but that isn't a tampon.

Shiat, you think Starbucks would just GIVE away a perfectly good tampon? That shiat costs extra! :P

/He and McMuffin gal should hook up.

Not all cops aren't bastards

A cop ... planting evidence?

Well I never.

Yo straight up if that shiat can soak up a thick as mud Starbuck Frappuccino it HAS to be the most absorbent product, color me impressed, blue liquid be damned

FTFA: "This disgusting assault on a police officer was carried out by someone with hatred in their heart and who lacks human decency," the LAPD's union told Melugin.

I didn't know Starbucks hired Republicans as baristas.
 
2020-06-24 8:57:44 AM  
Yep, never happened.

As much as I hate to say this, I hope Starbuck's sues the everloving fark out of the LASD/LAPD/whichever law enforcement agency is responsible for this lie.

Defund the police, indeed. Sue them all.

Cops are pathological liars, I don't believe this for a second.
 
2020-06-24 8:59:32 AM  
It seems somehow symbolic that these police unions and even departments just take the word of any individual cop about pretty much anything before even investigating.
 
2020-06-24 9:00:15 AM  
A) not a tampon
B) you can see them making your drink
C) ACAB

Starbucks: We have done an internal investigation and have determined no wrongdoing.

/I kid, but how fitting would that be if Starbucks released that message just to fark around?
//also, if the cops name wasn't hilariously misspelled was it really Starbucks?

It's already been debunked.

A lot of criminal cases hinge on the word of cops. One wonders how all of this is going to affect that going forward.

The Starbucks is in a Target. The Target pretty much did exactly that (although without the clever wording).

If I worked somewhere that served food to cops, I'd do much worse.

American cops are scum, and they've proven the only way to change their ways is to go through them, not with them.
 
2020-06-24 9:06:08 AM  
.aybe the barista misheard. Instead of 'gimne a grand frappacino with extra wa-hip cream' she heard 'please make me an overpriced iced beverage with a tampon from yon skank.'
 
2020-06-24 9:07:48 AM  
Like, the whole thing made 0 sense. Not only is that not a tampon, unless the Starbucks worker was the reincarnation of Houdini by way of a child of David Copperfield, no farking way are you sleight-of-handing something THAT BIG into a starbucks cup while serving it, because you are, you know, completely exposed and easily visible while serving.
 
2020-06-24 9:10:58 AM  
While it was nice they did all of their testing to determine if it could happen, the fact it's a cop saying it happened means it didn't, no further testing required.

Also as bad as the lie from the Huntsville, Al police calling a friend of ours Antifa terrorists at a press conference because she is a doctor who was with a couple of nursing staff that had a first aid station under a canopy during protests. They tore down the station and showed the video. She has filed a defamation lawsuit.
 
2020-06-24 9:17:58 AM  
1) Probably not.
2) If they did, I don't really blame them after the month America has had.

Felgraf: unless the Starbucks worker was the reincarnation of Houdini by way of a child of David Copperfield, no farking way are you sleight-of-handing something THAT BIG into a starbucks cup while serving it,


I think having a tampon magically appear in an iced coffee would be really more of a Penn & Teller trick that Copperfield or Houdini. Ricky Jay might have done it, only with really erudite patter, and also he would have thrown the tampon into the cup from across the room.

I can see where the mistake happened.  Someone probably ordered a vampire tea, he got their drink by mistake, and just found the vampire tea bag.

Cop or not, tampering with a random persons food is a chicken sh*t thing to do.
You have zero moral character.

The union isn't technically wrong, seeing how all signs point to the cops doing it to themselves...

I'm glad you don't work somewhere that serves food. Your  job there is to serve food in matter that complies with all food safety and sanitation methods. It doesn't matter if a customer is a cop, gay, potential illegal immigrant, guy from New Jersey, Joel Schumacher (history's greatest monster), parking enforcement officer, catholic priest, or any other person you might personally find distasteful.
Your job is to farking serve food, not to be The Semen Avenger. Farking with people's food is assholish and just plain wrong.  Doesn't matter who they are. It's like farking with a man's car.
You just don't do it. If you have a problem with the cops, that's fine. You want to hate them, I support you. Protest. Leaving flaming bags of poop on the station door step. Grab a cop's hat off his head and crap in it right in front of him.  That's fine. Don't fark with people's food.

It may get you off jury duty if you are related to a cop or have worked in any capacity with law enforcement. YMMV.

Loch Ness Tampons?

I once worked at a Jersey Mike's Sub shop, where we sliced the bread and the meat in front of the customer, and added topping and condiments to order.

We got a LOT of cops.

What do expect from high school C and D students? That they're secret geniuses waiting for the right inspiration?

if you feel that strongly about cops then do it in the open not like a service industry Machiavelli. own your sh*t for f*cks sake

Grande Vagachino. They're all the rage. I take mine with soya milk and an extra menstrual shot.

At this point, restaurants should probably just not serve cops. The risk of bad press from that is a lot better than consequences  if they decide to Lie about your food too.

not only did he pull the story out of his ass, but i'm guessing that's where the fake tampon came from
 
2020-06-24 12:15:30 PM  
Yeah, tampons don't look like that. Especially after they've been removed from a vagina.
