#CapBlack Comments On Cafe Istanbul Story

My comments on this story:

Cafe Istanbul, Landrieu administration reach agreement

I provided security at Café Istanbul- along with other men, as needed - for two years ( until this illegal ruling by the city ) with zero incidents; NO trash piled up & neighbors running around aiming camera phones at us and screaming at the owners!

I've been cited in local and national media for my public safety advocacy, including an April 2nd feature in USA Today http://www.usatoday.com/…/policing-the-usa-cops-c…/82500960/
One FMIA member even went so far as to file a false simple battery charge against a co-worker who NEVER got within arms reach of him- I was on scene the during the entire incident. This association and the city are working in cahoots to smear and eventually shut down one of the few minority owned businesses in the Marigny.
To say this is racially motivated is an understatement. City code nor state law requires licensed security officers at clubs ( a profession which rarely works entertainment venues ), especially for a location with ZERO incidents since its 2012 opening.
It's Jim Crow 2.0- not a progressive look for alleged progressives in office and in neighborhood associations.
