Starbucks CEO apologizes for false arrest of 2 black men

The chief executive officer (CEO) of Starbucks has announced that he wants to meet the black men who were arrested at the Philadelphia Starbucks last week so he can personally apologize. Apparently, the men were there to attend a business meeting and were waiting for their associate to arrive before ordering their coffee -- a practice that most Starbucks patrons are familiar with. It is, after all, polite to wait for your friend or business associate before placing your order at a cafe.

Police shootings still a problem despite 2017 record low

New York City police officers shot fewer people in 2017 than in any other year since records began. The 23 shootings, approximately half of which were fatal, compared to 37 in 2016, 59 in 2005 and 147 in 1996. Two main factors explain this decrease: better training and the increasing use of stun guns rather than traditional weapons to apprehend suspects and assailants. While police officers used stun guns 1,710 times in 2016, this number increased by more than a third in 2017, rising to 2,372.
