When ‘Coffee is a Crime’: What the Police, Prosecutors, Judges and Courts can learn from the Coffee War
Police and prosecutors are trying to understand what happened in the months following the November 2016 coffee explosion at Starbucks in the South Bay.
A grand jury indicted a former employee for second-degree murder in the case.
The charge stems from an incident at the Starbucks, which was shut down in January and reopened in March.
One of the employees involved in the incident is now serving a life sentence without parole in California.
At the time of the explosion, the Starbucks store was the only one open.
There was no indication the fire was connected to coffee.
It was one of the worst days of the year for the city, with temperatures soaring into the 90s.
By early April, the city’s population had dropped by about 30,000.
In a statement, the department said that officers from the San Mateo and Marin Counties, and members of the San Francisco Fire Department responded to the Starbucks after a “concern” about a possible fire in the store.
“We have worked closely with the company since the Starbucks incident to ensure that we have an incident protocol that is consistent with California fire codes and the standards set forth by the Federal Emergency Management Agency,” the statement said.
After the incident, Starbucks began conducting an internal investigation, and its CEO Tim Brewster resigned.
While the investigation has not yet been completed, the company said it “is looking forward to the process leading up to a decision on the outcome of the case.”
While there has been a lot of speculation about the cause of the fire, the investigators were not able to definitively say what caused it, said Lt.
Scott Taylor, a police spokesman.
Some speculate that it could have been a chemical reaction, but there is no evidence of that, Taylor said.
“The investigation is ongoing,” he said.
“The cause of this incident is still under investigation.”
In the weeks after the fire started, the coffee shop was heavily criticized by social media users.
On April 2, the day the grand jury indictment was announced, hundreds of people took to social media to express their anger and frustration with Starbucks.
As news of the grand trial broke, Starbucks posted an open letter on its Facebook page.
“”We are deeply saddened by the loss of life that occurred on November 22, 2016, and the pain that this tragedy has caused the community.
We have a responsibility to our customers, our community and the environment, and we do not hesitate to take swift and appropriate action when the safety of our employees or customers is at risk,” the post said.
