According to Philadelphia 8th District Councilwoman Cindy Bass, shopkeepers protecting themselves with bulletproof plexiglass represents an "indignity" to her constituents and should therefor be banned.

From Philly.com:

For Jeff Liu, the thick plexiglass window that separates him from patrons at his Germantown beer deli, Kenny’s Seafood & Steak, is a matter of safety. For City Councilwoman Cindy Bass, the barrier window is an insult.

The plexiglass partition serves to protect workers from crime, but it also cuts them off from customers — a literal and metaphorical divider between their worlds.

Several years ago, after Liu argued with a man selling drugs in the Wayne Avenue deli’s lobby, the man returned with a rifle and shot Liu’s car, shattering its windows, Liu said.

Bass says the windows only foster a sense that the establishment – more specifically, its clientele – is dangerous. And that too many of those stores masquerade as eateries when their biggest sales draw is alcohol, feeding vices in the city’s struggling neighborhoods.

“It’s an indignity” to buy a meal through such a window, she said

She is probably upset that the plexiglass makes it harder for the "indignified" to rob the place.

The next "indignity" will be bulletproof glass at the drive up windows at banks

There you have it,the owner wants to protect his investment and protect customers,while a moonbat wants to be a busybody drip over something that is not her dam business.

The video in the link shows that you still see into the store easily,so what is the "barrier" whine really about?

Racism,as the perpetually aggrieved democrats there say.......

The first thing I noticed when I moved from Grand Rapids to metro Detroit was the plexi-glass. In GR, there was one gas station that had it. In Detroit, the banks, credit unions, liquor stores, gas stations, etc., all have them. Not just in the city, but also in the burbs, too. The gas stations usually have the kind that they can pull open during the day and close at night.

Outrage as Philly pushes through ban on bulletproof glass in crime-plagued neighborhood shops

December 7, 2017

Excerpt:

Philadelphia is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses as part of a larger effort to crack down on loitering, public urination and potential drug sales -- but the potential ban has triggered a backlash from shopkeepers.

The city's Public Health and Human Services Committee passed a bill Monday enabling Philadelphia's Department of Licenses and Inspections to regulate the bullet-resistant barricades that stand between customers and cash registers in many neighborhood corner stores, according to FOX29.
