Shadow - so according to you the meager tax revenue from the clubs is worth more than a person's life. You need alot of help!
I know you did not go there. Just because I spoke of the tax revenue the clubs generate has nothing to do with the cost of life of this young man. But again it does, taxes pay for police and fire protection services, along with some other taxes. How do think police get paid - Vet - how did you get paid while being in service for our country - taxes placed upon the people. Once the village raise your taxes you and everybody else will be at the meetings screaming bloody murder.

Ask the idiot that shot the young man what he thinks of life.
They shoot people because someone danced with his girl, or the blunt wasn't good, or he didn't pay me back, or someone said he did something else just as stupid. We have some sick people running amuck and you say what is the cost. I have not shot anyone. Focus on curing these idiots shooting people how can we curtail that?

Mr. Shadow why cant you understand that the tax revenue is being eaten by the lawsuits. We can do with out these clubs. The Lawsuits and murders will bring this town to its knees. The next thing will be the shortages of Village services. The Village will be forced to layoff workers due to paying these suits.
If these clubs want to stay they need to put in place an insurance bond on behalf of the Village and this bond should hold the Village of Dolton harmless of any occurrences related to them. This bond should not be no less than 1mil. per occurrence. This bond would pay any and all lawsuits filed against the Village of Dolton up to 1mil. dollars.

Yeah, I can, and I did.

If the clubs weren't here, most likely, the stupid stuff you suggest would not happen, and no one would have been killed late at night in Dolton. If the clubs weren't here, maybe some real businesses would feel safe to open up in town, and generate some real jobs, and pay some real tax revenue. Businesses won't move to town, no matter how hard the administration tries, if they don't feel safe. We need real jobs for our young people. Get a life Shadow - quit defending the clubs, and start defending the citizens of Dolton.

The Club Doesn't accept responsibility for serving too many drinks. They just want the money. This guy was coming from Secret's. Yes it is the people but WHO want to die just to go to a club in Dolton. I won't be coming any more.

This week the village of Dolton has agreed to pay 50 thousand dollars to a man who was involved in an incident with Dolton Police when he was leaving Mr. Ricky's. 50 thousand could make a difference in this community, but due to these Clubs this 50 thousand will be leaving and the bill will be left for us to pay. If you don't believe this ask your Trustee, better yet ask the Mayor. It is illegal for them to lie about this.

I don't understand why the village has to pay it should be Mr. Ricky's who is making all the money. If you pay $10 a person x 200 people =$2000.00 a night for Mr. Ricky's that not even the drinks they drink. Dolton police need to step back and let Mr. Ricky's Pay for this stuff.
The Mayor and the Trustee need to face the the problem with the clubs out here.

When someone steps out of one of those clubs the authority becomes that of Dolton Police subsequently The Village of Dolton.
Have yo ever heard of a street gang called the MO's. The MO's are the new version of the Black P Stone Nation. They sometimes meet at Mr. Ricky's, and the other Clubs in our area. Usually when they meet its for planning on how to distribute drugs, plan for revenge after a member has been murdered and birthday parties. When the party's over they ride around Dolton looking for opportunities such as future burglaries, breaking in cars, requiting for new members and women to (holla) at. So if and when you go to these clubs look for their color which is red. Some nights you have the Black Disciples there with the MO's. The Black Disciples and the MO's are rivals. Also I want everyone to know that most of these men DO NOT LIVE IN DOLTON, its a free country and they can go and commit crimes anywhere they want. This is why the Village of Dolton will have to pay and pay, the summer is just getting started...

While reading these responses I became very disturbed by some. We need to take a stand as a people and realize the clubs are not the issue its the young adults that attend. Where did they come from. Maybe your home or mine. I have lived in the village for 23 years. I have watched businesses move out due to crime. We need to step up and begin educating our youth and stop playing the blame game. Businesses bring revenue to the village. Our uneducated youth are destroying our village. Its time to stop being our childrens friend and beging the raising process. But how do we do that. Remember we have babies having babies.

You are right about the businesses bring revenue to the village. If the cost of these club are costing the village more in law suits. Than the revenues that come in is at ----. Lets see how much is the cost of a life too. We have a lot of laws suits that cost, cost, cost. All the trash left on the ground for young children to see on there way to the stores or schools. Why 17+ should we encourage them to the clubs. We should encourage them to school.

Closing the clubs should be a no brainer if they are not attracting young educated people. Why attract all of the problems of the southside and northwest indiana to dolton. It doesn't make any sense to be hosting for a bunch of thugs so they can come and shoot up the town.
