The Red Diamond is the source of this senceless Tragidy! They have been nothing but trouble since they arrived in Mebane. My Friends and I both frequent Ground Zero and never have I seen anything pop off in that Bar or outside of it and if an altercation happens, it is over before it starts! I will say this, since The Diamond came to Mebane, We want walked down the street passed it because of the vulgar slurs and comments that they scream at you. Both parties where leaving that bar when this happenend.(multiple eye witnesses). Please shut them down!

I've been to the Red Diamond many times. This is a totally isolated Incidents . I personal know the owner and his son. They are very respectable individuals. I personally don’t believe they should bare the blame for a few ignorant individuals that have a beef and decide to settle it outside of there establishment. I feel that shuting down the Red Diamond would be a mistake. It is not only good for the revitalization of downtown Mebane; it also enhances the cultural diversity of a beautiful city.

I hope that the Police are out side thier Door everytime they are open. I really hope that they will try to SALVAGE thier Reputations and leave Our Great Town alone!!!!

I personally don’t believe the Red Diamond is trouble. Some of the people who actually go there may be trouble or have issues, and when you top that off with alcohol consumption, you have a recipe for disaster. I am not calling it racism, but it is threading a thin line. Although the stumbling pig and ground zero has never had a murder case on their premises they do have their own issues that are rarely publicized. Instead of the negative ridicule of the Red Diamond, we should try to be more constructive. We could encourage the owner to enforce a dress code to upgrade their clientele. There are several other measures that they could take to actually make their establishment a better tenant of our great town.

Owner is a well known local drug dealer and the town of Hillsborough or should I say orange county know this. And local idiots follow him as if he's a god.
