Re: “Backstreet Owner Arrested; Club Shut Down

This is the biggest bunch of crap. Even the person above says he never saw gambling which is what it took to get this warrant to come close backstreet. ANd if you don't think these closed minded hipocrit officers and that DA yes Biill Gibbons was there I personally saw him. This was an attack on a lifestyle and a piece of property that a group would like to rezone.And an employee that stopped at nothing to tell the police what they wanted to hear. The truth of all of this will come out just wait and your all gonna be outraged. The only thing that was an issue that carried any clout was promotion of aggrivated gambeling. These people locked a buisnessman of this city up and not just any buisnessman. This is one that has made huge contributions to this town not only giving all of us with deverse life styles a place to go but redeveloping the crosstown area with his hard earned money and excellent credit. Most who have done anything in that are are wealthy folks trying to find tax breaks and free money from us tax payers to do their projects. Shane Trice has never asked for one of these. He has never asked for tax credits of any kind. He pays his fare share of property taxes on every commercial and residental building he owns in this city. Backstreet has never promoted haveing sex, nor drugs, nor gambeling PIEROD. When has a buisness ever been shut down by the da that has not had an issue in 15 years with this city. COME ON FOLKS.. ANd this new law gives him the athority to go to a judge with LIES and abtain a warrant and do these things. ANd for all of you Gay People this was on the Anniverssary of Stonewall (A Gay Rights Movement) Im sure a certain saturday morning talk show host had a lot to talk about. THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT DON'T YOU WORRY. And Backstreet will reopen in that same location. Just not if your not registered to vote GO REGISTER TODAY IT IS THE LAST DAY! Just like during stonewall you can assure yourself BAckstreet, Metro, Marys and Shane Trice will fight for you just as the bars and citizens did 50 years ago on that Saturday Night. But we need all of you to be registerd and ready to put people in office that have EVERYONES CIVL RIGHTS AT HEART and we need to get rid of the ONE'S THAT DON'T. FOr a city this size to listen to an ex prostitute that brags about sleeping with 486 peole all the times word to charge a great man that has MUCH respect for this city and people with a felony for promoting aggrivated gambeling on the very same machines that are in ever bar in Memphis is about as corrupt as one town can be and we need to get rid of it.
