The American Legion should revoke their charter and shut that dump down.

Only 3 shootings in 10 months is a wonderful record. Most VFW, AMVETS and Legion Posts across the country are green with envy and would love to know the secret of Cesspool Yorks Fort Darkie.

What about the "after hours" nuisance "club" Ada's??? That is ignored and frequented by off duty police and local attorneys.

Early Sunday morning, a York man was shot outside the Charles E. Williams American Legion Post at 117 E. Princess St.

Just wondering, who is Charles E. Williams?

This so called Legion Post is joke and is nothing but but a cheap ghetto watering hole. National should definitely revoke this so called legion's charter and shut it down. It is an embarrassment to all veterans organizations in the area.

Just because someone gets shot on Pricess Street is no reason to blame the Legion. People get shot every day in the city.

"As a club, only members are allowed in; the public is not. People become members by filling out an application, undergoing an investigation by the club, and must be voted in by other members, state Bureau of Liquor Enforcement supervisor John Mathias said.

Only members can purchase drinks -- non-members may be allowed in, but a member must buy the alcohol, he said.

In addition, "You can't sell memberships at the door," Mathias said."

Wow this is so bogus - this whole statement to me makes no sense at all. The legion a. let's non-members in the majority of the people who frequent this "club" are not members and alot are underage. b. there is no process at all about your application undergoing an investigation, they are so glad to take the money they will accept any and all applications. c. non-members cannot buy their own drink it must be purchased by a member yeah right no one asks you for a membership before fixing your drink at this h*llhole!! d. you cannot buy your membership at the door - oh really because i know people who have bought memberships at the door. If these are the rules that need to be followed then the Legion on Princess st. doesn't follow any of these rules and needs to be under full investigation. And for them to say that only 3 shoots is not alot so how many more people need to be shot there before it does become a problem. If it's gonna be open then these rules need to be enforced and get a metal detector at the door because for someone to have gotten shot on the dance floor makes no sense. I say close the damn doors for good because there is too much violence and drug activity going on inside and outside of those doors. Drink in your house and shoot up your house but the dumb shit needs to stop immediately!!!! As for the disorderly conduct - who in the neighborhood is going to complain all the buildings /houses around the legion on that block are pretty much abandoned and across from it is a big empty lot, who's going to complain the roaches, rats and dirty hookers who parade from corner to corner!!!!! LOCK THE DOORS AND THROW AWAY THE KEYS FOR GOOD THIS TIME!!~
