She added that the Public Entertainment Premises license application was denied at the previous hearing and he was spoken to at length about the behavior at the premises. She stated he was encouraged to reach out to her and to neighbors, but that was not done. She added that the applicant has had a DJ on numerous nights with amplified sound, not just for the birthday as he stated. She stated that on March 12th she went to observe the activities of the premises and saw a man outside brandishing a gun pointed at the premises in a threatening manner and she called 911. She added that the man then drove off erratically. She stated that she viewed the security camera footage and saw the premises was overcapacity, many people were not wearing masks, people were smoking hookah and milling around. She added that she is concerned about the public safety and health of people when frequent the premises, and those residents who live around the premises. She stated that she recommends nonrenewal because she has no confidence that the applicant is managing or will manage the premises properly because he is not taking the direction of the council members, the Police and Health Departments, or residents. Carly Hegarty - Health Dept stated on March 12th they went out and issued 3 citations. She added that she emailed the premises about their COVID safety plan and that they were to maintain a 25% capacity, which meant 22 total persons including patrons and staff. She stated that there were additional violations after the previous hearing, including overcapacity, not wearing masks, and people not remaining seated. Lt Klein - MPD stated that there are several concerns about the premises including repeated violations of the capacity rules from the Health Department; the DJ that has been at the premises even though they have no Public Entertainment Premises license; patrons outside being loud and disorderly with security guards not addressing or trying to deescalate the issues, but responding with guns; a security guard making a comment about "just shoot him and this will be over with"; and not taking advice from the Police or Health Departments addressing issues at the premises. Ald. Coggs stated she has never seen in 13 years the Committee dealing with a problem establishment and 48 hours later there are major police incidents. She added that part of the problem was the premises not obeying what was discussed at the hearing. She stated that a license is a privilege, not a right, and residents have a fear about what is becoming of the premises because of the inaction of the applicant. She added that how the applicant addresses issues is critically important, but in 48 hours the applicant didn't address the concerns and disobeyed what the Committee said, which caused heightened situations to occur. She stated that the applicant has to operate responsibly and take actions to prevent incidents of people being hurt, injured, or killed, but it seems that in this situation the applicant did the opposite. Ald. Borkowski stated if ever there was a time for nonrenewal this is it. He added the premises is a powder keg and a cancer in the City. He added that when an alderperson witnesses a person point a gun at a building that is a wakeup call, and the applicant cannot be trusted. Ald. Borkowski moved nonrenewal based on the police report, and aldermanic, police, and Health department testimony. (Prevailed 5-0)

Individual also present: Dameon Ellzey - 15th District Legislative Assistant stated there is no excuse for a resident to be beat down at an establishment. He added that a cover up is taking place because the cameras had to have been working, and for the cameras to not have been working at this moment is suspicious. He stated the employees know the egregious nature of what took place. He added that they cannot allow the message to get out that it is okay for an owner to stand idly by while a customer is beaten and stomped on the ground. He stated that ownership matters and it is lacking at this premises. He added that he sympathizes with Mr. Farhud but this was a matter of a customer with mental health issues being stomped while Mr. Farhud was standing there. He stated that there is a heavy handed way to dealing with issues and precedent being set. He added that the egregious nature of what happened and was seen on the video, the owner not being at the store, and the security cameras not working show the premises isn't being ran correctly at this time.

Ms. Farina stated she is a community leader and she went to the store with other residents to talk with the owner about what occurred. She added Mr. Farhud told her that he beat up the victim and she told him that nobody deserves that. Danell Cross 2470 N 46th St stated her son was beat up at this premises years ago when he was drunk and causing problems and the video was traumatizing to her. She added that she has known Mr. Farhud for 13 years so testifying against him is hard for her. She stated that there is a potential for this to happen again and the victim was devalued as a human being. She added that the customers in the store also experienced trauma by witnessing the man get beat up. Individual present in support: Derry Johnson 2743 N 34th St stated he has known the family for over 35 years. He added that Mr. Farhud has always been a good guy and he is a pillar of the community. Ald. Coggs stated watching the manager and his nephew participating in the egregious act of beating someone up makes her question the applicant's ability to manage employees. She added that everybody deserves to be treated with humanity and that customer was not on that day. Ald. Kovac moved nonrenewal based on the police report, and applicant, neighborhood, and aldermanic testimony. (Prevailed 5-0)
