This type of behavior at a black gangsta night club.

How shocking.

It is very sad that we can't just have a place around Muskegon to have fun and hang out without the fear that someone there or waiting outside has a gun or something! How many bars are we going to have to close around here? And, of course, the violence will still be out there no matter how many clubs you shut down. They will just find somewhere else to do it.

Time to close this place. The owner is responsible for what takes place in that club. Crime can happen anywhere,but Muskegon which is just getting on its feet doesn't need this kind of attention.

yes, go ahead and take a "look" at it.
you see the same thing all the time.
i dont care how "PC" you want to be, its the same news story, the same type of behaviour, from the same type of people everytime.....
wash rinse and repeat this a few hundred more times and then maybe you can actually see the forest that these same stupid politically correct "trees" seem to keep blocking from plain view.

it does makes for some extremely easy to write news coverage though,
the only thing that changes is the name.
just cut/paste and reprint.

There's some good news! Let's let the government get involved, that will fix everything. Sounds like "Big Brother" getting involved in things again. "Big Brother" always fixes everything, right?

Wow a club in Muskegon with gun violence? Say it isn't so!!

Same thing will happen in Holland. The asian and black gangs just move down the lakeshore.

The government created the problem by giving the gangstas a liquor license, now the government can fix this problem by revoking the license.

They should have known that any place that attracts young black males will have violence and crime. People can make all the excuses and claims of racism they want, but that doesn't change the facts.

Really why is a 15 year old getting shot in the back by a 17 year old? As far as I am concerned no one that age should be at a club. Bars and clubs were not intended for kids. Second where were the parents? How does a 17 year old end up with a gun? The first line against violence is the parents it is time they start acting like it. Time for parents to start teaching morals, values, and ethics again. That is if these parents know what that is. I say they should arrest the parents and charge them along with the kid.

JimmyK you said it best. There is no reason for a 15 or a 17 year old to be at a nightclub and the fact that a 17 year old has a gun sickens me. This isn't as much about race as it is about values. Its time for some of these parents to step up to the plate and do their job.

None so blind as those that won't see.

These young black gangsters have learned the values they have from their parents, or in the vast majority of cases, parent.

Guess what, those values are not hard work, education, respect for others, marriage, and caring for your children.

You have generations of people who care only for short term gratification, being respected with out earning it, BLING, and receiving handouts without working. This behavior is the unavoidable result.

What you dont reliaze is this is a new era. new million. Nothing wrong with kids out after 12 midnight. This is the 2000's. Its no longer how it was back in your time 1950's...

The owner shouldn't be charged with anything. It happened outside of the club. And it was teen night...there was no drinking. I'm happy he's appealing. I don't live in Muskegon so I don't exactly know how bad it is but if you didn't do anything wrong, you shouldn't be punished for anything.
bye-bye

There are still curfew laws in the city. I found this on the city of Grand Rapids website....

City of Grand Rapids ordinance states that no minor under the age of 12-years-old shall loiter, idle, congregate, traverse or remain in or upon any public street, highway, alley or park between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. unless the minor is accompanied by a parent or guardian, or some adult delegated by the parent or guardian to accompany the child. For youth under 15, curfew is 11 p.m. and youth under 17 must be at home by midnight unless accompanied by a parent or guardian, or some adult over the age of twenty-one (21) years delegated by the parent or guardian.

This curfew law is in effect during the school year and summer break.
