Sounds Perfectly Logical – Right?

Philadelphia councilwoman Cindy Bass has introduced a controversial bill that would require business owners to take down any bulletproof glass they have in their businesses, and not allow future installation.

The bill, known as the Stop and Go bill, is moving through city hall, and reads "No establishment shall erect or maintain a physical barrier."

Broad Deli is a local business on the corner of the 2200 block of North Broad. It has a wall of bulletproof glass separating its employees from customers.

"The most important thing is safety and the public's safety," Rich Kim, the owner of Broad Deli, told WTXF. His family has run the deli, which sells soda, snacks, meals, and beer by the can, for 20 years.

Kim said that he had the bulletproof glass installed after a shooting, and that it saved his mother-in-law from a knife attack.

"If the glass comes down, the crime rate will rise and there will be lots of dead bodies," he said.

I saw this.  It's hard to come up with words.

 

Why does she think it is her constituents that the glass is offending?  Does she feel like registered Republicans don't commit armed robbery?  I'm just assuming she is a D.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --

"A provision requiring the removal of bulletproof glass from so-called 'Stop and Go' stores in Philadelphia has been removed from a larger reform bill."

Beer deli owners unhappy as amended bill on windows moves forward

Updated: DECEMBER 4, 2017 — 8:16 PM EST

After a nearly daylong hearing attended by more than 200 protesters, a City Council committee Monday approved a measure that would give licensing officials the authority to ban safety glass windows inside beer delis.

City Councilwoman Cindy Bass called it a win for everybody — but beer deli owners and their advocates were not happy.

The initial bill, as introduced by Bass, would prohibit beer delis and other food establishments that sell alcohol from maintaining or erecting barrier windows between food workers and customers. Bass had called the windows an “indignity,” saying it felt as if beer deli owners were serving food to customers considered dangerous or in “prison.”

She should have demanded that bullet-proof glass be installed in ALL such stored including white neighborhoods just to be fair about how store owners make residents look and feel.

The woman is a racist PoS, it's just that simple.

 

No doubt the people that elected her live in squalor, and well, you reap what you sow.

 

Idiots.

Funny. Whenever I’ve gone into one of these places, it’s never occurred to me to blame the store. I agree that it is an indignity, but the blame lies with those in the community that chose to use these places’ cash registers as no-charge MAC machines - withdrawal at will.
