If smith wants to help the community he could renovate the space to give the youth in the community a place to go so they do not get involved with the type of criminal thugs who seem to frequent this bar. Those criminal thugs have no regard for the law and act like animals, the last thing they need is a bar to go to. The censored words are drugs that were found during the raid; c r a c k c o c a i n e & h e r o i n. Basically, just about every drug was found there. I'd seriously like to know what the owner expects from the type of people who would carry drugs and stolen firearms. IF the undercover agents were patted down to check for firearms how were 6 firearms able to make it inside the club. How was the firearm used in the shooting able to make it inside the club?

If the shooter had been a better shot the victim would have been shot in the head and probably died right there in that bar. When the bar was raided 6 firearms were found, 2 of which were reported stolen, and also found bags of Marijuana, *************, powder cocaine, ******, prescription pills, and suspected methamphetamine. A previous article has Assistant Law Director Costa Mastros saying there have been incidents of criminal activity around the club, including assaults, gun fights and homicides. Notice that homicides is plural, meaning more than one. Why would we allow a bar to give thugs in this city a place to congregate and become intoxicated?

It makes no sense that the man can't hire a crew to help him get the building up to code. It also makes no sense why they would allow this man to continue to operate a bar. From a business stand point I don't see there is going to be profits from solely the $10 cover charge. Liquor is expensive and then there are all the other costs associated with operating a business such as utilities, licenses, and employee wages to name a few. I just don't get how that business model is going to yield a decent consistent profit margin. Plus if the bartender is fraudulently charging customers for their drinks that is in a sense stealing from the customer. Weren't drugs and guns found in this car when it was raided? This club/bar is trouble, always has been and always will be. What would anyone expect from the type of people who would carry drugs and guns on them? There was a shooting inside this club in which a bullet grazed someone's head.
