Two a.m. mandatory bar closing hearing stretches into afternoon

Some residents near Five Points say that drunk college students have urinated in their gardens, passed out naked on their front porch and been beaten with brass knuckles - and they feel a mandatory bar closing at two a.m. is the solution. Other residents, business owners and service industry workers disagree on that solution.

At one moment during today's public safety committee hearing about the mandatory bar closing, lasting three and a half hours, someone brought up that we can't stop young people from eating Tide Pods, and at another, car windshield penis dust artists entered the conversation. Five Points neighborhood resident David Axe suggested that if folks are concerned about sexual assault, they shouldn't be looking at a mandatory bar closing time, but rather, looking at wealthy white men. The committee, comprised of Daniel Rickemann, Ed McDowell and Sam Davis, will make a recommendation to the full City Council for a future vote.

The thing is not about the bars that work so late that people get drunk in them and make a debouch after. It's about the whole level of the youth manners and how they were brought up. So I don't think that closing bars earlier would solve the problem.
