The shame is the need for bullet proof glass.

In my lifetime Philadelphia was not a dangerous city to visit as a kid. In HS we used to go into Philly a lot for sports and shows.

What has made it so dangerous?

Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales

What idiot progressive linked bullet proof glass to loitering and urination? Oh, liberal Philly, of course. Making people less safe will surly solve the problem.

Are you trying to get people infracted? The answer is a hate fact.

You lost me. I looked up infracted and have that figured out, but the "hate fact" is still a mystery.

What does hate have to do with a city that was once safe and friendly changing to now being lawless and dangerous?

He was being facetious, and you missed the "hate" point altogether.

The war on drugs and drug-related violence.

^I know. Instead of locking up the mentally insane from the law abiding citizens, they prefer to make law abiding citizens lives miserable.

Oh, my. You just said the very worst thing that a leftist politician can ever hear. If the notion that the people should decide things for themselves spreads, the public might start realizing that they don't need leftist politicians and do-gooders at all.

That's death to the leftists. And is the thing they must fight and destroy, along with all those who support it, above all else.

It sounds like the city is incapable of enforcing their own rules and laws. If this is only about large businesses acting like they are small, then the city isn't doing it's job, they can easily walk in and shut them down for lying about their establishment. I think enforcing their laws would be a better idea than banning something.
