    This guy was reportedly shouting racial epithets at the patrons, then threw a bottle, splitting a womans face badly. Why? He said they didn’t tip enough. How much are you supposed to tip somebody who just used hate speech against you? This guy needs to be locked up… no plea deal and probation nonsense.
    Racism and violence against women need not be tolerated in LP County. They reflect poorly upon our community and endanger our citizens.

      So let’s see if I got this right Nick,

      You weren’t there, didn’t witness anything but your qualified to bring shame on someone?

      It’s easy to have an opinion, but it’s very difficult to have one that we’re QUALIFIED to have.

      Guess opinions aren’t worth what they used to be!

    Says someone that won’t show their face. Enjoying that high horse?

    I have been there many times and witnessed behaviors that would try the patience of the Pope.

    So go ahead and pretend you’re the one worthy of judging someone else!
