maybe he should stay out of bars

There's plenty of other things in life to do than hang out in a bar.

Well he's free to do as he likes...

... I wonder if the attacker knew who he is.

hanging out in a gay bar

Can't see the connection...

... between gay bar and said stabbing by two Asians (allegedly).

No, then go hang out in a gay bar

Maybe you will then see the connection.

Re:Maybe you will then see the connection.

That's how you saw the connection?

I used to work down the street

from Renee's in Tampa during the 70's on a graveyard shift. Great mixed neighborhood in the day, but at night the low life came out. That bar I think's been closed for years, but surprisingly the flop house that was across the road from the store I worked was open into this millenium! Lot of violence happened there on what had been Central Ave, later named Kennedy Blvd.

"Tampa adult-entertainment magnate Joe Redner bought the lease in the early 1970s, "And it became a strip joint," Few said.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Seven Seas was among nine nude-dancing lounges targeted by Tampa City Council efforts to close, or at least hamstring, such establishments.

"They were unsuccessful in shutting them down, especially the ones that had been there a while," Few said."

Redner, same immoral garbage who owned the gay bar 2-3 blocks down. Pimps, prostitutes, both male and female, ad nauseum. Nickname we gave the females were "vinagrettes" since they bought so much vinegar, you can figure the reason.

Search "Rene" on this page.

The whole town of Tampa became a bar scene, many gay, a bar on almost every corner of every major road and many on backroads. I was glad to leave that town. Driving on Friday or Saturday night was "look out for the drunks" nights. Liquor sales closed at midnight on Saturday, the bars had to close by 3am same night. Sunday was "dry out day" for the drunks who forgot to stock up enough for the weekend.

Many of those who frequented that bar are dead now from AIDS, the "Gay Men's Disease" which came along in the 80's. I left Tampa in 1981 for Air Force duty and never moved back. Sold Mom's house when she died because I had no intention of living there again.

Cities are like magnets for drunks, creeps and criminals. I like living outside of such areas now. It's been building up here over the past 30 years, garbage creeping down from Baltimore, so thinking of moving further out or maybe rural Texas or panhandle Florida, in a few more years.

Was it a real woman

or a "Caitlyn" type of "woman"? In a gay bar, can you really be sure short of a package check? Even then , maybe transgender operation was done.

Whatever YOU want to think they MIGHT be

is irrelevant.

Are you going to meanmouth a serving member of the United States Forces?

No gays should ever be in the military

That's the way it was when I served and it's the way it should be now. Do ask, do tell, kick out, end of discussion.

RE: How to thank a hero.

by condemning him for being in a gay bar.

How forgiving?

- Collapse -
I'm not French

The French thanked him. Obviously the gay bar patrons in America felt different. How forgiving were they? Stabbed how many times? I didn't stab him. You are really confused on such matters often.

(NT) maybe he was stabbed because he was with women
