What is this gr...

So the police have sat outside of the bar. That doesn't say too much. How many times have they actually walked inside? The only time they get out of their vehicles is when a fight breaks out. Hardly ever do they just walk in a do a random ID check. Maybe they should try that trick out some time.

The Graph shows a pattern of criminal activity, You know where to put your manpower. That would explain the police cars sitting close by. Its really not rocket science if you just think about it. If you got a good fishin hole you don't walk down stream, you stick to it!!

Brain power mus...

OOOOO, police cars sitting outside the bar. That really scares these underagers who are INSIDE the bar drinking. And if they file out with the rest of the drunks you won't even notice them. That's my point. Where's yours? Does this make sense to you? I hope so, because if I have to make it any more clear I think I might have to use the dictionary to find smaller words to explain it.

Some math for y...

OK, Lets brake this down into dollars and cents. How much of our tax money is being spent at each bar. We'll say 2 Officers were sent and lets just say it's $25.00 an hour per officer (That's actually kind of low)

Rupp’s Place 136 385 3,693 = $3077.50

Charlie’s Bar 235 587 6,973 = $5810.83

The Office Bar 43 91 536 = $446.66

Shamrock Tavern 10 18 132 = $110.00
Berry’s/The Dinky 37 59 1,254 = $1045.00 50% = $522.50

Bluto’s 17 37 344 = $286.66

TJ’s Bar 24 66 850 = $708.33

Moose 30 57 492 = $410.00

Glass Bar 39 99 899 = $749.16

$12,121.16 Now I think any amount over each bars city Property tax should be paid to the city of Norwalk

Re:Brain power ...

So you want the Police to do the bar owners jobs? I understand what you saying. And how are we going to pay for this? Man power cost money. If they see a cop coming in they will just slide there drink to someone over 21. I'm sure the police will come up with something we'll just have to give them a chance.

I think H R M just left the bar. Blah,Blah,Blah.

Don't cha love ...

I love how all these people who witnessed uderage drinking. How many of you have turned someone it for it?

Blame game (Ano...

It is duty of bartenders and the police officers to do the job the parents should be doing. Why should parents have to tell their kids NO. Why should parents have to strive to keep kids away from alcohol until they are legal, isn't this why we pay our taxes? Isn't this why we make it illegal to serve people underage. I for one am telling my kids that Cheif Cashen is now responsible for them.

T$Robinson (Ano...

to "Blame game" thank you that is very well written , if , of course , you are being sarcastic! i truely believe that you are being sarcastic, but you never know , there are really people on here that believe that everyone else is responsible and liable for the actions of their kids !! i know , right now i am trying to reach "Ryan's " headquarters, because i ate and ate and ate when i was there last week , and they didn't do anything to stop me .. i have gained weight , and obviously , it cat't be my fault , not in this day and age , anyway

Blame game (Ano...

Of course I wasn't serious. I think it was funny tho

hey t (Anonymous)

let's vote to close all the bars, either that or perhaps they all could just allow drinking in the parking lot...or throw a few tables out on their sidewalk and call it a park and then city council can vote....

re; hey t (Anon...

I vote for that!!!
