Let’s put the dress code for Power & Light District to rest once and for all. People who have pride and esteem for themselves will automatically dress properly for any occasion. Then you have people with no pride or esteem about themselves or their homes, and they dress accordingly. They don’t care if they look like a freak from a sideshow or something the cat dragged in.
I don’t like being around these uncouth people any more than you do, but they are here to stay. Since this is a free society, we are forced to tolerate them. If these uncouth people have the money for a ticket to any public event, we have no choice but to let them go. That is the price of freedom.
Have you forgotten what happened at Indian Springs and Bannister malls? Certain groups took over and ran the good people away, be they white, black or brown. When there are no rules, this happens.
Leave the Power & Light District alone. They have the right to certain codes and the right to refuse service. Bans can hurt businesses. Remember smoking?
Leave the business people alone. The City Council should take care of the city — streets, sidewalks and trash pickup.
