News Tabella Witch-hunt
posted by July 5 at 13:50 PMon
As I Slogged earlier today in the news section round-up, we got ahold of security camera footage from inside Tabella (one club that’s being scapegoated for a shooting earlier this week) that shows the club isn’t at fault.
Well, Jonah just turned up more evidence to douse the witch-hunt: An SPD incident report from last week about a call to help Tabella. Tabella security asked the police to help them trespass a patron who had been told he was not welcome at the club two weeks earlier for flashing gang signs. The agitated, drunk, and threatening suspect was back, and at Tabella’s request, he was taken into custody.
The SPD report notes:
This nightclub does a very good job of patrolling the area just outside the club. They do their best to maintain order and have their customers disperse the area when the club closes.
When City Attorney Tom Carr and the City Council predictably go after Tabella to take away its liquor license, they probably won’t be citing this report from the city’s own police department.
