Our View: Thumbs down

Thumbs down to the conduct of the ownership at The House Pub in St. Charles. The downtown bar was recently issued a three-day liquor license suspension for poor treatment of police officers who entered the bar March 15 to discuss the behavior of a visibly intoxicated man. Bar ownership reportedly argued with police, using obscenities, and ordered police to leave. In discussing the punishment, St. Charles Mayor Don DeWitte said such behavior “will not be tolerated.” Nor should it be. Regardless of the details that led police into The House Pub, police officers have a difficult job to do and deserve to be treated with respect. Such a public dust-up is especially regrettable considering the ongoing concerns the city has with rowdy, late-night
