My response to AJ26003: The reality is simple people don't like "strip clubs" in their area. MOST clubs bring trouble such as drugs,prostitution etc. although Godfathers prior history could fall into that category it however is NOT now nor has been for the past 7 months. The Wheeling P.D were present often within the first few months of re structure as the new Manager. I knew the only way to clean it up was for the trash that thought they could call it their own to be taken out. I've made a complete 360 in under a year,so while my entire out reach to the media and times leader is with anger it's only for good reason!

It sounds like Godfathers is being targeted by the media and police. This can not be good for biz. The GM should probably go to WTRF and get the real story out since they posted wrong too

Oh and by the way the head lines say he's "still at large" that's funny because by 5a that morning police had a name in hand to make the arrest. To help clear any local residents conscious his name is A.J from Wellsburgh whose last name I cannot say due to legality.Once more ill repeat,for any more information I would contact Wheeling P.D.

Hello everyone as the General Manager allow me to comment with the truth. First and foremost the robbery did NOT happen in our parking lot nor on our property! SECOND for those of you that feel it did consult the Wheeling PD and ask why they didn't show up at our door? Why not this time unlike any other to come retrieve video? We have over 47 inferred cameras that record every square inch from outside to inside. We also have installed a state of the art metal detector along with a hand wand for extra suspicion. With that said the gunman was NOT a patron of Godfathers either were weapons of ANY kind. Since my takeover as G.M of Godfathers just a merely 7 months go I've done a lot of change, therefore those of you with questions or concerns please don't hesitate to call 304-232-5702. AGAIN in the past 7 months we as Godfathers cooperated with Wheeling police department on multiple cases,handing over several video footage there's nothing to hide now! I'm sorry I cannot speak on the past

Does the bar have cameras? If so, did they turn security footage over to the police? I'm sure that would show a lot more illegal things than a robbery going on in this joint.

Why this poor disadvantaged young man was just following the leadership of his messiah.

He was redistributing the wealth using the "direct contact" approach instead of letting the government do it for him.

Shoot on sight. But don't tell NBC. They will twist it up so that you are guilty.

That would be about the time I reach into my pocket draw and SHOOT the scumbag!!!!

Once this clown pulled the gun, he signed his own death sentence!!!

I'd rather be JUDGED by 12 than CARRIED by SIX!!!!

The description of the individual immediately cast suspicion on Santa Clause. Was there any reindeer scat in the area?
