SAD THING IS, IT DOESN'T MATTER THE MUSIC YOU PLAY AT THESE BARS AS LONG AS YOU HAVE MORE THAN A FEW BLACKS ( MALE/FEMALES) THERE, YOU'RE BOUND TO HAVE SOME TYPE OF ISSUES. FORGET ABOUT THE MUSIC, IT'S THE DRUGS THEY OVER TAKE. THE POLICE WILL FIND OUT WHO DID THIS AS SOON AS ONE OF THE SUSPECTS CATCH A TRAFFIC TICKET. AND TO THE LADY THAT CALLED COLD CRUSH HOME, YOU'RE A LADY AND THE BAR IS YOUR HOME, DANG, AND YOU MAY NOT SEE DRUGS BEING SOLD OR INDULGED BUT THAT'S AT ANY AND EVERY BAR. GET WITH REALITY AND WAKE THE F UP.

A TRUE PILLAR OF THIS COMMUNITY.

Denver Post needs to print some clarification on all this !

Zach-White people have a history of violence. You know, the Inquisitions, Manifest Destiny, Crusades...should we say that white people are where violence comes from??? Violence is an undercurrent of society...quit reaching already.

What you are doing is attempting to make a blanket statement about music as opposed to looking at the real causes, such as the environment these people ARE FROM and how that can affect them. While your process to make these "correlations" seem to take some inteligible thought, your conclusions are completely off the mark. That's like looking at those incarcerated for drug related reasons with out looking at who the real drug users are. Get off your fucking high horse, go pop in a grateful dead tape and enjoy it. But definitely don't comment on shit you have no grasp of. It just makes you look like an asshole.

My opinion is formed from watching violence spiral out of control in neighborhoods which were once great places to be.

Saying hip hop has a history of violence is bigoted? Sorry guy, that is the truth. Does it mean this place advocates it? Not at all. Does it mean that all hip hop revolves around violence? Not at all. But it is there as an undercurrent and it will continue to fester until you actually address it. Instead of getting mad at me get mad at the idiots who are shooting people around your bar. I have nothing against this place and according to its supporters I am very wrong in my original opinion. I can accept that. I am sure it is a great place. In general though, I stand by my previous comments.

Zach Carsel
Zach Carsel

No, because all of you keep addressing me personally. If you don't want a response then don't address me. It is funny that people even try to deny the connection. I post the same stuff because no one is actually refuting the established facts. I don't think this is the general attitude of the bar but it is more likely than other places to attract this element. Serial killers? WTF? How many serial killers are there?

@zach Stand the fuck down already! You're posting the same article on everyone's comments? You're obviously more defensive about this because you're battling everyone with your nonsense. This has nothing to do with Hip-hop or Cold Crush(IT.WAS.CLOSED-does that even process?) this has to do with ignorant people! You want me to pull up some lame article about serial killers and point out what they have in common? Cause it sure as hell isn't Hip-hop, sir.

I was goth in my younger years. The music's lousy, but nobody gets shot at a goth club.

I will say, I wasn't trying to put Cold Crush down. I don't think anyone sets out to go to or start a club near gunfire. lol, okay okay...not really done but whatever...it is nice out :)

Zach Carsel Dude. Enough. Really. Those 'types' of people you speak of would feel extremely out of place there. Again, You don't get it. Hey outside. It's a beautiful day in Colorado today!

Actually James, people did stop going to that theater because they closed it.

Great place to visit... Did you all stop going to the Movie theater after the Mass shooting? Shit happens!!! People will do fucked up shit... Don't let that keep you away from a fun bar, in an up and coming thriving new neighborhood!

I gotcha. Not trying to rip on that place at all. I hope they do well. I just like debating contentious issues...and I still stand by the general idea that this place will be more likely to attract people into gangster rap or at least that mindset, moreso than, say, Lodo's. Don't take it as me bashing the place. I'm pretty sure the regular patrons and owners don't want any gunshots going off anywhere near there. Unfortunately this will put them on the police's radar.

Zach Carsel
Zach Carsel

True, Michael. I did jump to that conclusion which was unfair. I hope the club does well actually as any place in Denver. Easy to get distracted when people start personal attacks.

It is just my opinion, but is seems that many of the people posting here have been distracted by the local media's slant on the story. This, combined with some disgusting racist language and idiotic high school click mentalities have distracted from the actual issue. Here's the deal; some young people in our city, people who could be our classmates, our friends, our neighbors, co-workers, are victims of a senseless act of violence. Stop the blame game and work together on a solution so that we don't have this happen.

That may be true, but it's still wrong to make the claim that hip-hop=gun violence. There is also no evidence that this started at the bar. And do you frequent the hip-hop scene in Denver? Just wondering where you've seen it a dozen times.

Your opinion is based on facts, reason, and logic.....people attempting to smear you or "block you" (cowards) have nothing except PC blinders, deflection, and denial.

MM,


No need to pull up any articles, nearly all serial killers have liberalism and sense of entitlement in common.

Look! Squirrel! The article isn't about serial killers, is it? However, if you'd like to go down that road and compare raw numbers, neighborhoods, and violent crime, bring it. I won't hold my breath.

Thanks for the post, James. We're going to feature it as an upcoming Comment of the Day. Much appreciated.

Thoughtful post, Kevin. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Off the top of my head, the Bluebird Theater, Vinyl, any number of incidents at 10th and Lincoln clubs (that closed and reopened as a new club every 3 months for years because of asshat thugs and violence). Downtown shootings at faceless lame hip hop clubs after let-out, "wildings" at same said clubs.....shall I go on, you politically correct moron?

So, Stan inadvertently added an unintended letter, but what about you stinky?


Typical brain dead donkey comment.



"Good think (sic) the Sgt. keep (sic) a throw-away piece..." May 15, 2014


Remember, the one you deleted in shame and embarrassment.


Perhaps you should consider an apology?

@fishingblues @DonkeyHotay

Eh, don't even bother. Donkeyasshat has repeatedly made an idiot of himself by claiming superior intellect, often during a grammatically-deficient post. Yes, my "r" was inadvertent....meanwhile, Donkey fails to grasp contractions and proper tenses. It's understandable, the dude's an idiot and a coward.

He does, however, have an amazing grasp of 12 year old girl text-speak. LOL! OMG!
