Crime is soaring across the country and police are left gutted by leftist policies.

That is causing the American people to fight back against the violent thugs terrorizing our streets and businesses.

And two Starbucks baristas stopped an armed robbery but got “thanked” by Starbucks with this disgusting action.

Two Starbucks baristas who stopped a robbery and beat up the two men who allegedly tried to rob a Starbucks in Missouri were fired by the coffee chain for their heroic efforts.

A violent crime stopped by average Americans

St. Louis police reported that 37-year-old Joshua Noe and 35-year-old Marquise Porter-Doyle stormed into a Starbucks on December 17 with what looked like real handguns.

They demanded the coffee shop’s employees hand over all the cash in the register.

When the employee told them he wasn’t able to open the safe, Noe allegedly hit the employee in the head with his gun.

Unfortunately for the would-be robber, the gun shattered, and that’s when the victims in Starbucks realized they had fake guns.

Two of the baristas and a few of the customers in the store rushed the would-be robbers, gave them a good old-fashioned beat down and held Noe until the police arrived. 

Porter-Doyle was able to escape the beat down, but police caught up with him later and arrested him.

The two alleged robbers are now facing a combined 20 felony charges for robbery, attempted robbery, and assault.

This was clearly a situation where the good Samaritan Starbucks employees acted heroically, and all should have ended well.

But Starbucks had a different thing in mind for the two heroes.

Fired for defending their customers and themselves

And instead of thanking the two brave employees, Starbucks decided to fire them.

The actions by Starbucks against the two heroes were disgusting and has caused an outpouring of support for the two brave baristas.

But that isn’t the end of the story.

An attorney for former barista Michael Harris says they are filing a lawsuit against Starbucks, according to the St. Louis Riverfront Times

The other fired barista was Devin Jones-Ransom.

“Michael and Devin were promptly fired by the company without any explanation as to what, if any policy they violated, or what they should have done differently about the situation,” said attorney Ryan Krupp.

“Harris complied with the robbers’ demands until it was no longer an option for himself and others,” he continued.

Krupp went on to point out that Harris acted out of fear that he might be killed by the alleged criminals.

And Harris said in a statement, “I just wanted to do the right thing as a person and as an employee.” 

A representative for Starbucks released a statement about the lawsuit attempting to explain Starbucks’ horrendous decision to fire the two.

“The safety and wellbeing of our partners (employees) and customers is always our first concern,” the statement read. “All partners are expected to follow our carefully crafted protocols to ensure the safety of customers and partners during these situations.”

It seems those “protocols” include allowing yourself and others to be beaten, or even killed.
