Brickbat: Adding Injury to Insult
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, City Council member Cindy Bass says it is an insult to the residents of some neighborhoods that stores in those neighborhoods have bulletproof glass between the cashiers and customers. She has authored a bill that would require stores to remove such glass. She says its sends a message that the customers of those stores are dangerous. She also says that many of those stores get too much of their revenue selling alcohol, which those neighborhoods don't need.
