Democratic councilwoman says the safety measure relied on in low-income neighborhoods hurts shoppers' feelings.
Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales -- but it's triggered backlash from the shopkeepers.

Hurts the shoppers' feeling? More like the armed robbers' feelings.
The people who vote for her want to rob the people who don’t vote for her. She is in favor of this.
There should be a way to hold these clowns legally liable when the bodies start piling up.
They want Trader Joes to open a store there instead of Mr Patel’s 7-11.
We put a store in South Central LA and the shrinkage was so bad, we had to remove it from all performance reports.
My mom’s hometown, when it was a halfway sane place. It’s horrible what it has become.
First time I seen bullet proof glass was on a gas station just off the Dan Ryan in Chicago in what was an all black neighborhood and where the cashier was a large, large black woman.
So if I were a Korean I would hire a black woman and put her up there and then plexiglass would be back in about 10 seconds.
Who’s we? Are you in management with Trader Joe’s or some other chain store?
Feelings are more important than reality. And safety. And life. Look how these idiots view terrorism.
I was at Sara Lee outlets then. We actually had to hard-code the store number in report queries to exclude it because the President got tired of seeing it at the bottom of the reports.
There will be increases in robberies and murders at these stores.
The stores will be unable to hire anyone, who is willing to risk his/her life.
The stores will shut down.
Dems will demand that some stores be opened in those neighborhoods, so that the residents have access.
I believe the goal is to make the stores go away rather than be easier to rob.
There will soon be more murdered clerks and fewer neighborhood shops. A few neighborhood citizens will die in the remaining shops from being shot while pointing guns at un glass protected clerks.
Have they already disarmed the shop keepers too?
This is highly reminiscent of the passage of and reasons for the Sullivan Law in New York. The Mob types who supported and supplied the NYC and some State politicians and bureaucrats were losing money because the people they tried to hijack often had guns and shot the crime org’s hardworking employees.
Why the challenge?
Given his use of the term “shrinkage” rather than THEFT, I’d say so.
Law of unintended consequences. In six months this idiot will be screaming racism because inner-city convenience stores will be closing up shop and disappearing at an alarming rate forcing the inner-city residents to commute distances to grocery stores to purchase convenience items.
The liberal way of saying theft.
Liberal demonrat politics in action...demonrats are the reason bulletproof glass is needed in the first place....removing it will close the businesses clinging on in the hood....more blight......throw more money at the problem....liberalism is an agonizing, terminal disease....
