After a startling video showed a homeless guy tossing a bag of excrement at the owner of a bar in Los Angeles, the owner of the bar lashed out at the city council on Thursday, accusing them of ignoring the growing crime epidemic. The incident occurred outside the bar.
Paul Scrivano, the owner of Blue Dog Beer Tavern, spoke with the media to address the event and explain why he feels helpless in light of the support he has received from the community.
Scrivano described the sensation to his co-host, Todd Piro, as “a genuine feeling of powerlessness.” “When someone uses the restroom outside on the street, it does not signal the end of civilized society. When the government chooses to ignore something like that and when the government decides that something is OK, that marks the end of civilization. “
