The suburban scum you refered to was taken to a jail hospital where he is still being treated, having been brutaly beaten and stabbed with a broken bottle by the poor blackfinn saloon security guards. The security guard was treated for a minor wound having been stabbed with a swiss army pocket knife. Adam Hearn is still suffering from infection and having glass removed from his abdomen thanks to the brutal tacticts of the saloons security guards. I dont think that Adam Hearn is an innocent victim, but I do think he was acting in self defence. The Blackfinn Saloon has a reputation for violent behavior in their security staff as well as overserving their patrons. I would urge anyone eles who was there that night to come forward and tell what really happened . A mans life may be at stake. The Blackfinn should be investigated and shut down. Surly enough has happened at that bar to warrent such an action.
