    This man died and he is being charges with just simple assault. Please tell me there is more to this story. NC already is letting a preacher go for killing his wife with a bogus sentence.

    I wonder if there are other solutions to these types of problems without closing the much needed businesses. I know I am opening up a can of worms. I am in no way defending any crime but there has to be solutions to these problems. People need places to go to and unwind, socialize and get away from it all in a safe environment. If we close them all down, there would probably be much more violence not to mention the loss of tax revenues. I agree with Michael as most of the problems I have been seeing are due to negligence on the business owners part. I think that if the state starts sanctioning some precautions with stiff penalties for negligence, issues like this can be kept to a minimum.

    This is no surprise. When the manager has to carry a handgun while at work. This club doesn't have enough security to handle the crowd. They spend 19,000 for a new fire alarm so they can fit 2,000+ people in there but won't spend any money for extra security. Just shows how little they care about their customers but instead care more about their profits. I hope the city decides to shut this place down.
