    Shut the bar down? Yeah that will stop the violence. I have a better idea. How about we start throwing people in jail when they commit a felony or have a lengthy criminal record instead of giving them a slap on the wrist.

      I never said they should shut the bar down. Just make regular patrols in these barsand arrest all of the felons carrying weapons, ticket underage drinkers, etc. Rather than holding press conferences with all of the church pastors in the inner city, go where the criminals are hanging out in the taverns after 10pm. Thats how they could make an impact on rounding up these POS criminals.
