Where else? It’s Portland:
Co-owner of the worker-owned, radical-themed coffee shop Red & Black Cafe John Langley called the 911 emergency services line on Friday, seeking an ambulance for a man who had apparently passed out from a heroin overdose.
Langley told the 911 dispatcher, “We don’t allow police in here, so we can totally accommodate fire department and other personnel. Not police, though.”
So it’s okay to not allow cops in the place, but it’s cool to sue the owners of a bakery for not making a wedding cake for a gay couple. Got it. Yep, we’re still in Portland.
On the plus side, if you like vegetarian food, you know where you can graze for free; they’re not going to call the cops because the owners believe that “Civilization is the root cause of oppression.”
“HELLO, 911? DELIVERY. YEAH, I’D LIKE AN AMBULANCE, A DRIVER, A MEDIC… BUT HOLD THE PEOPLE WITH THE GUNS. IF YOU SEND ME PEOPLE WITH GUNS, I WILL SEND THEM BACK.”
