After reading this artical and all the comments i have come to the conclusion that youngstown is still a racist town. With the facts of the story not totally being provided it seems that people have jumped to conclusions on this matter. With the fact that Cory is a young black male he is labeled as a thug, and since Phil Chance Jr is a police officer he is right for his actions. This story does not provide the facts of the altercation and it seems as if there is alot being left out.
First off why is the name of the bar not being provided? With an altercation of this maginatude dont you think the bar should be held responsible. No one goes on to mention anything about the bar and the no one points the finger at "Pal Joey's" for not being unable to control a crowd and also the UNDERAGE DRINKING but all other urban bar establishments are thrown under the bus when something like this would happen.
Just saying, more need to be done about the city in general and just because of race doesnt mean that someone is right or wrong and establishments need to be held at equal standards not the so called "white" club getting more leaway than others bars or clubs
