    There is an alternative to police, and they are called criminals.

    You do not deter criminals by giving them a harsh talking too.

    I have actually met people like him before and they really do believe that you can reason with anyone if you just sit down and talk. They act really surprised and shocked when they encounter someone who uses violence as a negotiational tool

    Their typical day is only $550? I don't know how they stay in business.

    That’s not much for an eating establishment. Bills are high in that type of business.

    What exactly does this mean? Would it be like an intervention for criminals?

    Why? That's probably a normal thing to do there. Heck, they probably just squat down in the middle of the place. Who needs a entire room dedicated to that?

    If no one has read the reporters blog you should it's a interesting read about the encounter.

    Where?s a Portland Police officer to get a cup of coffee | Cornelia Becker Seigneur~ Author.Speaker.Teacher

    A little excerpt
    After the policeman quietly left, I asked the co-owner what is the problem here, he said that he does not feel safe around the Police, that they shoot people. I tell him I am confused by his response to a Police Officer who is merely trying to get a cup of coffee, and that I know that there have been some unfortunate situations recently involving the Police, but that overall they are here protecting our community day in and day out, and you have to look at all sides of culture. I wondered if he has visited countries where there is no true police force and where there is indeed lawlessness running the town or country. He had no reaction to my question.

    And then, I asked him whom he would call if someone came in to rob his establishment, and he said he would call his friends in a community and that is when I knew we were getting nowhere. I told my daughter we needed to leave.

    People should rob them everyday. After all, their way of thinking says that everyone is entitled to their piece of the wealth. So, the robbers should get their share of the coffee money too, right?

    And wth are "community forums for restorative justice"?

    Wait. I looked it up. Somebody was high when they came up with that.
