加州奥克兰一家咖啡店拒绝为警察服务引争议 __双语新闻

A California coffee shop is under fire for refusing to serve uniformed law enforcement officers, claiming it’s to protect the “physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.”

一家加州咖啡店因拒绝为穿制服的执法人员服务而受到抨击,其声称这是为了保护“顾客和我们自己的身心安全”。

Hasta Muerte Coffee, an employee-owned business that opened just a few months ago in Oakland, recently announced it will not serve officers in uniform.

员工持股的Hasta Muerte 咖啡店几个月前刚刚在奥克兰开张,其最近宣布将不再为身着制服的警察服务。

It all started a couple of weeks ago when an Oakland police sergeant wanted to introduce himself to the owners and get a cup of coffee. However, he was denied service, KTVU reported.

这一切都发生在几周前,一位奥克兰警官想向老板介绍自己,并点了一杯咖啡。然而据KTVU报道,他被拒绝服务。

In a letter to the Oakland police union after the incident, the coffee shop said “it does not serve the police.”

事件发生后,此咖啡店在一封致奥克兰警察工会的信中表示:“它不为警察服务。”

Hasta Muerte Coffee, which is Spanish for “until death,” explained the situation in a social media post last month – which sparked widespread criticism online.

Hasta Muerte是西班牙语,意思是“直到死亡”,此咖啡店上个月在社交媒体帖子上解释了这一情况,在网上引起了广泛批评。

“We have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves,” the post read.

“我们有一项政策,为了顾客和我们自己的身心安全,要求警察离开。”帖子写道。

The lengthy post continued: “OPD’s [Oakland Police Department’s] recent attempts to enlist officers of color and its short term touting of fewer officer involved shootings does not reverse or mend its history of corruption, mismanagement, and scandal, nor a legacy of blatant repression. The facts are that poc [people of color], women, and queer police are complicit in upholding the same law and order that routinely criminalizes and terrorizes black and brown and poor folks, especially youth, trans, and houseless folks. For these reasons and so many more, we need the support of the actual community to keep this place safe, not police.”

这篇冗长的帖子继续写道:“OPD(奥克兰警察局)最近试图招募有色人种警官,并在短时间内宣扬更少的警员参与枪击事件,但这并不能扭转或纠正其腐败、管理不善和满是丑闻的历史,也不能扭转或纠正公然镇压的后遗症。”事实是,poc[有色人种]、妇女和酷儿警察在维护相同的法律和秩序方面串通一气,这些法律和秩序经常使黑人、棕色人种和穷人,特别是青少年、变性人和无家可归者被定罪和恐吓。基于这些原因和许多其他原因,我们需要实际社区的支持来保证这个地方的安全,而不是警察。”
