    How is a cocktail bar with a metal detector on the door even allowed to be open?

    Doesn’t it tell you enough about the people who go there?

    Huh? Wait a cotton picking minute. A guy goes into spinning wheel fires shots and that club isn’t closed but a guy stabs someone or fights someone inside a club and what do you know. It’s closed down by police for 24 hours. Omg. Hmmm something just isn’t adding up

  3. Confused says:

    What about the shooting at Spinning Wheel?

  4. Is it fair says:

    I understand there was a recent fight at Police Club but I don’t recall seeing how the club was closed for 24 hours….
