Don't let Foster off the hook, cooperate with investigators & let him pay for his crime.

Keep the trash out of Danville! It's always these punks from other cities starting fights in our fine establishments. You don't see Danville guys going to Antioch bars to start fights do you?

"fine establishments" - who are you trying to kid? Same white trash, just more expensive beer.

Alchohol & Ignorance has everything to do with it - Is Meenars over serving people to intoxication - I know so, How much does Danville Police spend to have 3-4 officers in front of those bars on fridays and saturdays - everytime I have driven by they are there - where were they that night

They should proscute this Foster for his actions - 2-3 guys on one and then stomp in the head while down and out - He must be a real tough guy this Foster

Overall there are not too many fights at this place. If there was, the city would take steps to shut them down or suspend their lic. 15 years ago, that area had a few more bars at the time and there was many more fights back then so it is much better. May not be doable with the way police officers hands are tied today, but I know many cops that used to work for bars as bouncers to make a little more money and keep the peace. I am no fan of that bar but its been here at least the 17 years I have been here and feel they have a right to be here just like any other bussiness as long as they dont require any more assistance from the police that is normal for an operation like that.

I would *really* like to know why the victim/loser refused to cooperate. C'mon Geoff -- investigate!

Pete, who said anything about race? I guess you just made an assumption because I mentioned Antioch. Nice going Pete.
