Philadelphia Is Forcing Business Owners To Remove Bulletproof Glass
Article from The Daily Caller by Nick Givas.
Philadelphia’s City Council voted to remove bulletproof glass windows from certain local businesses Thursday, upsetting shop owners who fear for their safety.
The council passed the measure by a vote of 14-3 to remove protective glass that separates customers from the cash register. Lawmakers believe these stores may be serving as drug fronts and are attracting undesirable elements into the community, according to Fox News.
The legislation stops short of full removal, however, and states the city’s Department of Licenses and Inspections must “promulgate regulations to provide for the use or removal of any physical barrier” in stores that offer food and alcohol by Jan. 1, 2021, Fox News Reports.
The City Council chamber was full of store clerks and owners who were against the measure. Mostly Asian-American residents spoke out and asked the council to reconsider, according to Fox29.

To the Philadelphia city council. Have you people lost your minds? There is no way in Hell I would open a convience store in your (biggest lie ever told) “City of Brotherly Love” with out this wall of protection. Instead of going after the store clerks, get your corrupt police dept. to do their damn job. Catch the bad guys and lock them up.
Leeroy Smith, right on brother! That’s like in Az. The new Sheriff is making. the correctional officers wear name tags, instead of just a #. Since he’s done this there have been 5 officers murdered. where there were NONE before.
A few major lawsuits from the families of dead business owners directly at the city council members that voted for this might just be enough to change their minds. It needs to be filed outside the city though because the “good ol’ boy” factor. Get them!
Not a brain between them!
