Reinstate the street teams!!!!! Bar owners and the downtown business alliance complained about them giving off the wrong impression to potential clients and tourists. That message being, if you come downtown, you'll get harassed by the police. Now the message is, come downtown and you'll get stabbed. Hmmm, which is the lesser of two evils? One could reason that if we shut down a select few bars, The Rox and The Rhino, the violence caused by underaged, drunken "thugs" would stop, however, this would only cause them to congregate elsewhere. At least we know where they are going to be and can avoid that particular area. Over saturate 2nd and market with law enforcement and be quick to disperse any large groups. Without the use of force however this will prove to be easier said than done.
