Bar patrons are people, too 

To the bouncers of Halifax,

As a regular patron of many bars throughout Halifax, I find it disturbing that many of the bouncers I encounter are ignorant assholes with belligerent, egocentric attitudes. Although there are many kind and honest bouncers throughout the city, many dickhead, power-tripping bouncers still exist. As a Maritimer, I take pride in the fact that we are known to be friendly, hospitable people. This construct becomes a contradiction after a visit to some of the popular bars downtown. Some bars might as well spit in your face, kidnap your kids and steal your girlfriend/boyfriend away from you, they're so hostile. I do understand that enforcement must be somewhat necessary in dealing with crimes and violence, especially by drunken hooligans, but this does not permit the majority of the general public to be harassed continually, as if they were prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, with no right to an attorney. I'm optimistic, and hope that one day these hard-ass lunatics will come to a more clear knowledge of respect and understanding for mankind.
