    What is not addressed in these ridiculous, illegal activities are the aftermaths. Foremost for the patron who lost his life and his family. The trauma of those witnessing and the possibility that the establishment may not survive financially.

    Just cannot safely operate a tavern on that side of town anymore. Time for Bret to shut it down and move on to something else. Obviously no metal detectors and they make it comfortable for lowlife POS thugs to come in there.
