Letter from Starbucks
I live in Connecticut not far from New Rochelle, New York which I visit frequently as I work with tenants at shopping center up the road about 1.5 miles from New Rochelle High School where there have been three stabbings in less than 10 days, including the January 10 murder of Valeree Megan Schwab who was a 16 year old student at the high school. Valeree was stabbed to death by one of a group of bullies apparently from the local high school.
Many years ago I lived in New Rochelle while I attended NYU law school. At the time, the mid-90s it was fairly safe, especially around Iona and to the north. There has been some negative creep over the past 20 years though the largely liberal infested area has maintained a front due to the fact that the neighbors take pride in and are very defensive about their neighborhoods. Private neighborhood associations have a lot of power in the city and rule the roost on many matters such as zoning. In one nearby neighborhood, the homeowners take maintenance of their property very seriously, I think they have a contest to see who can keep their property the most free of leaves throughout autumn. The ferals mainly keep to downtown and the area just to the north of I-95 and to the south of Iona.
In any case, I have a few stories about the area and the recent stabbings remind me in particular of one incident which occurred at the shopping center I mentioned. In advance, yes, this really happened as I heard the story from New Rochelle police, some people at the shopping center and I viewed some video of part of the crime.
One night a few years ago, a young black male burglar broke into a house to the north of Iona and lifted the usual – cash, etc – and left on foot. He went to North Avenue where he entered a car stopped at a light which was driven by a young woman and her female friend. He told them to drive to the shopping center where he asked them to stay put while he went into the Starbucks (yes, really).
When he came out with three coffees, one for him and two for the women, they were surprising gone. The New Rochelle Police contacted ownership and the tenants about this crime since they were looking for video footage which showed the perpetrator get out of the car. They had to find evidence to tie the suspect to the car.
They had asked Starbucks for their video but they refused, which is odd because I am certain Starbucks’ counsel knows the video could be subpoenaed; besides, who doesn’t want to help the police.
Unlike the international purveyor of crushed coffee beans, my contact at the shopping center was more than happy to assist and provided the video which was used to send the bad guy to jail for 20 years since he was a third-striker. I looked at the video in disbelief as it was quite surreal to see the guy leave the vehicle and enter Starbucks, watch the car leave, and then see the guy come out of Starbucks with three coffees in hand, looking around in disbelief that his ride left.
While crime did not pay for this village idiot, the story ended well for everyone except for the homeowner whose chattel was stolen.
