Maybe comments about wanna be bikers should be kept to your self being the FACT is the bikers were raising money for a good cause not for crack or anything else.

The owners/operators of that bar have some serious questions to answer, and will most likely be asked these questions at trial.

As SOON as the fight broke out, they should have called the police! They still own the parking lot, and so just pushing the fight out the door doesn't cut it and it certainly doesn't make them not responsible.

This is what happens when you have people running a bar that have no idea what they are doing, they hire inexperienced bartenders that dont communicate and dont know how to handle the patrons. The place has become know for over serving and accepting no responsibility for the things happening there. cleaning up the place is a joke. Just because you can buy a bar dosent mean you should. they should sell now before someone else has to pay with thier life or thier freedom because of the owners negilence.

I love how adults are not required to be responsible. You all expect them to be "babysat" by bartenders. Hello?! They make drinks, they aren't hired to be psychologists and give customer service. stir, shake, ring. Adults made the decision to bring a knife and fight like children. Why didn't the responsible adults leave when they noticed that the atmosphere was going sideways?

Great lesson for my kids. It's always someone else's fault. Always someone else to pay for it. Key here is someone lost their life and it's terrible, sad occurance. Keep an eye on your friends and YOU pick up the phone and call 9-1-1 if you think others are not doing it fast enough. Others need to take action and not blame one or two business person. Maybe all the customers should be sued for not calling 9-1-1 on their MOBILE phones? They are just as responsible if that's the case.

Thank GAWD the place FINALLY looks like it just shut down. Maybe they got sued and were forced to close their doors for good. If so, GOOD riddens.

There are many other trouble-free bars in the area to go to,- this one was run badly and allowed an environment to fester that ultimately led to this situation. Not rocket science in normal social order and awareness to see this. Shame on the establishment.

Bummer,- I just saw a posting on Facebook that the joint is only temporarily shut down for a week due to "repairs". Oh well. Enjoy the closure for a week I guess.
