TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! POLICE REJECT NON-APOLOGY FROM COFFEE DUDE DANNY O'NEILL AND BOYCOTT ROASTERIE!!!



Locally, and thanks to our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY, we had a conversation about a KCMO coffee kingpin disrespecting police before any other local media outlet.

And now local sources struggle to play nice with the tall & lanky KC biz dude . . .

Here's a non-apology that's touted by MSM . . .

Danny O'Neill: "Many of my friends are members of the Kansas City Police Department and other area police departments. My business offers discounts to area police officers. The Kansas City Police Department will collaborate with my business on a motorcycle safety rodeo later this year. Last summer I made a solo 8,000-mile motorcycle ride to the Arctic Circle to raise more than $25,000 for a KC charity to purchase adaptive bikes for kids—my journey was safe, thanks in large part to police officer friends I consulted with prior to the trip and officers I met along the way."

The response and follow-up coverage . . .

Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police President Brad Lemon says it was shared with him.

"It was three months that he went and drove a $100,000 dollar car illegally," Lemon said, who was on his way back from Clinton Officer Christopher Ryan Morton's funeral. "I wouldn't even consider putting something so stupid online and talk about how ignorant I am that I'm driving my $100,000 car illegally."

Accordingly . . .

TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! THE NON-APOLOGY SPIN DIDN'T WORK AND POLICE REMAIN UNSATISFIED AFTER THE INSULT!!!

Make no mistake, the Blue Lives Matter movement can make a HUGE impact on a biz that is based on nothing more than beans and good vibes.

And then . . .

O'Neill, who is out of town, issued a second apology and said he is personally meeting with the Fairway Police Department.

“I am deeply sorry for remarks made in a social media post about a police officer who issued me a well-deserved violation for expired tags. They don’t reflect the great work these courageous men and women do to keep our community safe. I am personally meeting with the Fairway Police Department to apologize and will continue to support, in meaningful ways, Kansas City-area police departments and the officers who perform their invaluable service.”

Meanwhile, a Starbucks is moving in across the street from one of Mr. O'Neill's signature stores and the "good guy image" this dude has portrayed is now kaput thanks to an arrogant episode that's proving harder for police & their supporters to forgive.

Conservatives still havne't forgiven Mizzou.

I'm thinking this might be worse because danny boy was so late to the game.

Who cares, he spoke some truth but still only has to pay a fine, I’m all for the police but crime and murder is out of control so maybe they should move on and do what we’re paying them to do

Not a lot of murders in Fairway. And police are paid to do all of the jobs not just handle murders!

Will not be giving the guy my money. Let him pay for his own Tesla. His remarks require a lot more of an apology than his second one that was only because his statements were so repugnant.

I love seeing people such as Danny Boy who totally fuck up and then blow a gasket yelling at others for their own stupidity and ignorant ways. You know like Glazer does all the time. The ole it's someone elses fault and never my fault kind of people and then they think offering an apology and throwing a little money, free tickets or coffee around makes it all good again.

Well Danny Boy and Glazer I say fuck off and die both you pompous assholes.

chuck said...

The guy made a mistake, he is now groveling.

It's time to let it go.

He said he was sorry again and again and is now ready to grovel in person at the Fairway PD.

That's about fuckin enough.

It's not he robbed a liquor store.

Super Dave said...

I hope this temper tantrum costs his ass about 500k in sales this year alone. It's one thing to yell and scream when you have been wronged, but to yell and scream when you have done wrong is, well just wrong.

Anonymous said...

If he’s sincere, let him put some BIG $ where his BIG mouth is. A donation to a fallen officers fund, etc. in honor of the Fairway cop he mocked would be a good act of contrition.

chuck said...

Come on Super Dave. You are breaking the butterfly on the wheel.

People used to run their mouths about cops in their local bar before social media and make stupid Barney Fife jokes, exaggerate the incident and pretend to be a tough guy over a couple of beers - then, after the cathartic break, go home, pay the ticket and no damage.

Now, every fuckin thing is in the public square for all to see and minor mistakes are turned into opportunities for community lynch mobs to act just as belligerent on line, as he was and torture some poor fuck into bankruptcy over nothing.

Everybody says things in the heat of anger, that later, they might wish they had modified, or not said at all. His complaints, actually, were problematic because of the puerile 3rd grade insults.

Had the context and descriptions of the occurrence been couched with more civility, we would all probably have a different view of the whole thing.

500K?

Come on buddy, you want to put the guy out of business for something this small?

Jesus Christ! Why don’t you and stupid Dave get a fucking room so you finish sucking his dick in private! The rest of us would appreciate that.

You fucker said...

They are doing their jobs... Supreme Court ruled that the police only jib is to uphold the law, period point blank... So writing tickets is upholding the law... Proactively stopping robbery and homicide is protecting and serving and that's not their job

He should stick a toy police car in his rectum to raise money for police charities and whatnot. I'd donate.

Apology means nothing. He is an elitist asshole and nothing will change. Fuck him.

Seriously, does anyone know Danny? Do you think he'd let me stick a toy police car in his butt? By toy police car I mean my penis with Police written in the side if it.

After 20+ yrs in Law Enforcement I can tell you that a simple expired tag nets literally 1000's of unexpected crimes Beijing solved, from murder suspects, to GTA, to untold amount of warrants. So, Mr. O'Neill, I suggest if you want to drive around in your 100k car, keep it current.

Shameful behavior to post such a diatribe you smug $&?

Danny O'Neill does a lot of charity work through his Roasterie stores. Give the guy a break. He made a mistake and apologized for it. Before boycotting him, check out how much he does in charity work.

Nobody believes Danny. He just needs to shut up.

Danny has to get this under control, and like right now. He said some stupid shit. Calling cops Barney Fife and saying they had their guns blazing was straight up stupid.

The union guy took two steps and nut kicked Danny full on. Danny is a better dude than this. He picked a fucked up time to say what he did. One of their own was just killed and everyone’s nerves are raw as hell. Getting sideways with the local cops and their union was as stupid as shit gets.

Danny fucked up. Bottom line. FUCKED UP !!!! Pay the fine and SHUT UP! Plus now you better give a bunch of free coffee to the local PD. And sell the Tesla and buy a Ford 150. Douche bag.

Too late to get it under control. Time for someone to get him to shut his big mouth.

Anyone who knows Danny is not surprised here. This is just a tiny sample of his BS. The carnage he has left with ex customers and employees is legendary. I cant believe Pembroke has him on their board.

The guy has money to burn it appears and all you idiot coffee snobs made it possible. You snobs have created this asshole so live with him. Nobody's coffee is worth those prices but you snobs are too fucking lazy to brew a pot of Joe at home in the morning so you throw your money into assholes like Danny's pockets then bitch about what you created.

^^^Are you jealous baby-dick? It sure sounds like it. Kid got rich, you got nothing? Kid drives a Tesla, you're on a blog at 6:25AM bitching about it! He made it. You lost! No go take your ass to 7-11 for your shift. Bye lil'bitchey boi!

Anonymous said...

Ditto

MONEY is the reason Pembroke has selected/appointed him to their board. Deep pockets.


He was a nobody until a few people gave him a break... former landlord on the Westside wanted to see him be successful with his coffee and cut him a good deal, only to be treated rudely by O’Neill. His ego has obviously got the best of him. Money doesn’t buy class.

Regardless Danny boy has no shame. To quote narcissist Danny boy’s apology.

“Last summer I made a solo 8,000-mile motorcycle ride to the Arctic Circle to raise more than $25,000 for a KC charity to purchase adaptive bikes for kids”

Narcissist Danny boy needs to swallow his pride or something else.

This guy is stupidity at it's finest. You get pulled over for driving with expired tags and take the L and move on. I guess his assistant wasn't on top of this little task for him.

Danny should insincerely apologize again today and then shut the fuck up

Anonymous said...

What Danny should have done is to go home after getting his ticket, sign the back and mail in his $133 and kept his yap shut. No one needed to know anything about this. A guy with his kind of money the ticket was pocket change, spare change or petty cash, nothing more. But could he do that! NO! He had to show everyone what a big thing he is, or is that was?
I don't like his coffee and I don't buy his coffee.
He should never have done the "KCPD cops are my friends" bullshit. He should never have played "I raise money for charity" bullshit. He should have paid the freaking ticket and driven to the DMV and gotten his new sticker. But he didn't.
He brought all of this crap on himself.

Danny O'Neill treats everyone this way. He stands the tallest when he is belittling someone. Worked for his company for 3 years. Rotating door of employees leaving or being fired. The theme song when I worked there was "Another One Bites the Dust". Working there is like living with an abusive spouse/parent. You never know when it is going to be your time be dressed down and ripped apart. Horrible man. Karma has come back to kick you in the ass Danny!

So it's turkey plumage or a toy police car in the ass. They can decide at the Fairway meeting.

He might as well posed hold up the bloody head of Lenny Dawson. Funnier, but just as fatal.

I hope Danny takes his medicine and does the Fairway police meeting quietly and does not try to turn it into a PR stunt.. I bet 75/25 for the latter.
