I honestly feel bad for these guys gentrification is pushing them out of the neighborhood and they must be dealing with a lot of stress. Let them have some cash to help make ends meet.


amazing they keep lots of cash in the bar, but cant afford a decent low light camera and motion detector lighting to make it easy to catch the thugs….guess they are smarter then we think.
