Lulled into complacent zen-like trances by the smooth sounds of musicians like Norah Jones and John Legend, Starbucks customers have a false sense of security and get their shit stolen all the time. People just throw their purses over the backs of their chairs, or leave their laptops on tables when they get up to use the restroom! Although "no one has tallied the number of Starbucks thefts," police call them a "comfort zone" where customers let their guards down. It's gotten bad enough the NYPD has run sting operations! If Starbucks isn't safe, is anywhere?
