The Foxtail/Skybar club released a statement on Tuesday announcing it was closing “until further notice”. They made no mention of the heinous video that was filmed at their club
While the club avoided acknowledging the video, a local judge addressed it directly in comments to the media.
“It’s an embarrassment. This video went viral in the United States,” said District Judge Eugene Ricciardi WPXI. “We have people in Florida who saw this video. What does that say about us?’
He also said he had been in direct communication with the club’s owner and said the owner had agreed to close “until we got everything under control”.
Ricciardi also said the club owner agreed to “drain the swimming pool on the third floor”.
Solutions proposed by Ricciardi include a “crime emergency” and possibly the beginning of “Stop and Frisk here in the City of Pittsburgh.”
Stop and Frisk is the police practice of temporarily detaining, questioning and searching civilians to find illegal contraband and weapons.
The incident comes as Pittsburgh’s South Side suffers a terrifying crime rate, forcing Mayor Ed Gainey to reach out to residents and business owners in the area.
“This visit was important as we continue to expand Pittsburgh’s peace plan to ensure everyone in our city is safe,” Gainey said at the meeting WESA.
“This is 20 years in the making,” Gainey said. “It won’t be resolved tomorrow.”
Business leaders in the area warned of a mass exodus, and one, Christie Neff, owner of Twelve Whiskey Barbecue, begged Gainey to “please save us.”
She went on to say that if Mayor Gaines continues to “step down,” then “you’re going to end up worsening all the companies that are actually doing their best on the South Side.”
Pittsburgh law enforcement officials have indicated they intend to better patrol the area, as Deputy Chief Linda Barone said: “We’ve seen it work in other areas where saturating an area with all our resources really tames the activity.” Has.”
Gainey also said, “The only way we can create a Pittsburgh path to prosperity is if we work together.”
