WE'RE A GRASS ROOTS GROUP...TAKING BACK OUR NEIGHBORHOOD!
"Those Who Forget History Are Doomed to Repeat It" This site was created to DETER violent public nightclub activity,
not glorify or promote it. While some local Nightclubs have been closed,
and others changed their music venues or had their occupancy permits reduced,
we'll continue to monitor nightly public club activity.
THESE CLUB PROBLEMS ARE NOT RANDOM!!!
People are NOT running up and down the street indiscriminately shooting and stabbing strangers.
ALL...and we mean ONE HUNDRED PERCENT...of the nightclub related stabbings and shootings have been intended attacks.
These incidents were either the result of altercations that began inside the nightclubs or they were targeted hits,
where the victims were specifically sought out by the attackers.
Difficulties occur when club owners & management fail to take precautions, are apathetic as problems develop and
consequently ALLOW things to get out of control by tolerating the violence. It's the nightclub owners who are ultimately responsible for their businesses.
It's the PROBLEMS we're trying to make go away...NOT the nightclubs.
It shouldn't come down to the neighborhood acting as watchdog or the Chicago Police having to intervene as referee.
When forced into these roles, club owners have absolutely no one else to blame for the consequences...
and there WILL be consequences.
