Our beloved PLCB? Our own Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. They sell you the booze, then bust you for selling it, while taking payoffs, in the interim. Bar owner's, what's the matter, aren't you paying enough to the LCB, to look the other way?? Don't you know, all you have to do, is pay your liquor lawyer, and he will pay them? At least, that is how they did business, with the Easton bars, for years, in the 70's, 80's and early 90's. Doubt it has changed...

The police only enforce this crap at election time or when some politico needs a diversion. Pennsylvania, the 18th Century forever.

Its not the same. PLCB is the state agency that regulates the sales and licensing of liquor. LCE is a Bureau under the State Police who do the enforcement of the liquor code. The wenforcement was moved from PLCB 20 yrs ago due to the large scale corruption of its agents. Problem is that the agents transfered to the Bureau and the State Police are stuck with civilian enforcement officers. Good news is the tax dollars generated keep rolling in thanks to Uncle Eddie.

Stooge's in Allentown should be shut down (after being torn down, brick by brick) for serving visibly intoxicated spoiled brat sons of prominent local lawyers who kill people driving drunk and think they can get away with it. Guess again.

These all sound like such nice places. It would be a real shame if they got shut down.

This is a joke. Police responded to 560 calls at the Traylor's bar, in a 22 month period, and our beloved District Attorney, and his paid off LCB cohorts, never noticed, or stopped to think this might possibly be a nuisance bar? In Northampton County, DA Morganelli jumps on a bar, if they have a very few amount of calls to the police. The Traylor bar averaged 28 PER MONTH, for 22 months, and neither the Lehigh County DA or the LCB noticed. Ok, which one of you has been getting paid off, to look the other way? Come on, tell the truth....

Everytime you post something like this it just shows what a coward you really are. What is your problem with the owner of Looper's? Read the other responses to your cowardly jabs and you will see how much this woman does for this community in terms of community service and charity work for cancer research, etc. Get the facts on this, this was the FIRST time they had ever been in violation of the liquor code and they are not a hangout for kids. Is your life so empty and meaningless that you have nothing better to do than post your bitter feelings on line? Take a good look in the mirror, you are probably no prize yourself, and try to be happy. Life is too short for this petty garbage. Good luck to you.
