    You can shut the club down .. It wont help . Because young adults will find trouble if they are looking . It doesnt matter south west north or east side if people are looking for trouble they will find it .

    This is just like the dump in Jackson called the Rocket. It brings in all the trash from the slum apartments, all they do is sell drugs in the parking lot and flash their pistols at ya if you look at them. This is why I'm moving to the U.P. they don't have this drama going on up there. Lansing, Jackson, Flint, and Detroit are all going to fall apart. It's just a matter of time.

    The city can increase minimum age to purchase alcohol to 25. This would move the trouble to other areas.

    Come on people, don't you see a pattern here? The shootings are happening becaause they can get away with it. You don't hear about this happening at the Whiskey Barrel do you? Or other bars just a few miles down the road. What a joke. South Lansing has gone downhill and I avoid it like the plague.

    Its even better when you get done with work and have to drive through swarms of shady-lookin' people just to get to your HOUSE! And there was a huge fight in the parking lot of the YMCA the other day, right across the road from my house. I don't have children, but I know of several families near me. That place is ridiculous and it needs to go. NOW.

    The only thing that makes the venue a bad place is the immature ppl that go there. Not everyone that's attends the venue on the wkend is lookin to get into shootouts or other drama. Maybe the club should change the age requirement from 18 to 25 and over perhaps then a more sophisticated crowd would bring the southside back to respectablility. U could shut down the venue, but I assure u nothing is going to change. Why should those of us who like to have a good time out with friends suffer because young folks don't know how to act?

    The Venue is the new Cadillac Club! Time to close it down. Lansing is a huge cesspool, a dump, but it CAN get worse by allowing places like this to exist.

    Maybe we could get better police coverage in Lansing instead of them going to the Venue every weekend. This place is nothing but trouble you have apartments and town homes just blocks where children of all ages live....Come one Lansing start thinking. We do not need this. This is what gives Lansing its bad name and reputation.
