The pro-police movement Rally For Law Enforcement is continuing its boycott of Starbucks after the company’s latest incident involving a police officer in Oklahoma where one of their employees wrote “pig” on a Kiefer police officer’s order. The Starbucks is located in Glenpool, OK.
“This seems to be a continuing trend with Starbucks and we can’t support a business that continues to hire employees that are against our police. This is just one of the several incidents that have happened at Starbucks locations across the country. Our boycott of them will continue and we hope supporters of police and officers themselves will consider patronizing local establishments which support our law enforcement. Our police officers deserve our thanks for their service and to be respected,” said Rally For Law Enforcement’s founder Nohl Rosen.
Rally For Law Enforcement launched a nationwide boycott of Starbucks back in July 2019 after Tempe police officers were asked to a leave a Starbuck’s location because a patron felt uncomfortable with their presence there.

Please join us on March 28th at Tempe City Hall at 4pm as we stand in support of Tempe Police and Officer Joseph Jaen who has come under attack by anti-police activists and groups for doing their job. Office Jaen stopped a suspect who was burglarizing a vehicle and had what appeared to be a 1911 .45 caliber pistol. The suspect then ran from police and was shot and killed. Though the pistol was later discovered to be an airsoft replica one can only imagine what could’ve happened next if it had been real. Since the incident, anti-police protesters have held demonstrations outside Tempe PD as well as taking over and disrupting a Tempe City Council meeting in order to bad mouth and attack law enforcement. We believe that the Tempe PD and Officer Jaen are being unjustly targeted for doing their job and we’re calling on all those who support law enforcement to join us in Tempe to support our cops. Tempe City Hall is located at 31 E. 5th Street. We hope to see all those that back the blue there. Please help us spread the word. Thank you.
We have setup a Facebook event page for those who wish to RSVP. You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/events/622380354864416/
