Letter: Nightclub, employees shouldn’t have to babysit patrons
First Published Apr 06 2014 11:15 pm • Last Updated Apr 06 2014 11:15 pm

I think it is very wrong to hold a nightclub responsible for what a patron does when he leaves the building. The patron should be aware of when he/she has had enough to drink. Each person has to be responsible for his or her own actions throughout life, and account for their own decisions and bad choices.

Why put the blame on the club and employees? It doesn’t make sense to me. This law is just teaching people to blame others for doing something stupid and pass the responsibility on to someone else.

Why should the employees have to babysit the crowd and be in danger of retaliation from an angry drunk? If a patron gets out of control, just call the police to handle it. That is how it was for centuries.
