Then the next thing you know I’ve got [Business Affairs and Consumer Protection] showing up.”

It should not be groups of people hanging outside the Tavern after it close they should go home. I'm black and I hate to say I would be calling the police too if unruly loads mouth people making unnecessary noises is sooo unclassy. Heck I call the police on church people that was below us because it was after 10pm and they were playing their music like they were in a concert. It boils down to respect and I didn't see anything racist about what the neighbors were doing. If your being unruly and disturbing the peace yes they have their reason. From what's be going on shooting? seems like a mix of bad crowd of people and the owner is about money and not peace.

Another race baiting story. imagine that. Fact is the neighbors (no matter their color) have a rite to expect a safe & quite neighborhood. If the owners can't contain the noise then the neighbors are well within their rights to call the police & have them dispersed. stop acting like 🤡 and calling your neighbors racist. Playing the victim card is so lame.

I'll say this, a shooting Would be the first and last time period:Secondly being a proud black man as I Am you have too Understand these Neighbor's,there very Aware that 79 percent of Crime at this moment involves black youth and bye having a predominantly black crowd and a shooting Would be Enough for me ;So I can't actually say I blame the neighbors for wanting you out right Away;because it only gets Worse
