Discrimination or harassment? Who does Jesus Leon Sr. think he's kidding? What is happening to him isn't discrimination, it's called being legal.
Every time something happens that doesn't go quite the way certain people think it should, the first word you hear is "discrimination." Is that supposed to scare us? I, for one, would be very disappointed if the police department would fail to do their job for fear of discrimination cries. They have an obligation to uphold the laws for everyone, and not overlook anything just because you might be Hispanic or any other nationality for that matter.
Jesus Leon says that the police are called to his bar every weekend. Does that say something? Sounds like he doesn't learn very fast. Most people would learn from their mistakes. Loud music in a residential area is disturbing the peace. When you put a bar in a residential part of town, you have to realize that noise will be a stipulation in your contract.
As far as his customers, illegal immigrants and underage drinkers are legal concerns. The police aren't harassing, they are doing their job. Does it make you wonder if the customers that are asking for refunds have something to be nervous about?
Jesus Leon keeps mentioning that he has put a lot of money into his business. I'm sure that every business in town has done the same with theirs. He asks if other businesses (I imagine he means bars) have the police arrive there. Seems to me that every bar in town has had the pleasure of the police department coming through their doors at one time or another.
As with Jesus Leon's bar ... what makes it so different for him? He is doing something wrong and all of a sudden it's the neighbors' fault, or the city's fault, or the police? All I have to say is "get over it!" Cut the discrimination, harassment and "I have it so tough here" talk. If you have decided that Worthington isn't the nice place that you thought it was (one that will bend over and overlook the things you do wrong), you do have an option. I'm sure that there is a bus leaving every day headed back to your homeland.
