The owner of Rocky’s Road Brew, Rocky Coronado, wrote in a Facebook post that she is “well within her rights to refuse service to law enforcement agent,” including ICE officials and local police officers.
Why? Because she, along with the “majority” of her customers, “do not feel safe around law enforcement agents.”
Detroit Police Chief James Craig spoke with Detroitnews.com.
He said, “Generally speaking we have good relations in that neighborhood, but my officers tell me whenever they've been in that area investigating criminal matters, she's been uncooperative and rude."
"She has clearly shown disdain for police; the million-dollar question is: Why? We'd like to know what the issue is and would like to sit down and talk to her about her concerns," Craig said. "I don't agree with what she's putting on Facebook, but if she ever needs help we'll give her the same service we'd give anyone else."
The Rocky's Road Brew truck offers vegan tacos and organic coffee and tea.
Rocky’s Road Brew isn’t the only company who refuses to serve law enforcement officers. Dozens of restaurants and coffee shops have refused to serve police officers nationwide.
