Yea Baby's to close for good following padlocking order

Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 5:52pm

After multiple police calls, an incident in which 50 shots were fired and a padlocking order, Yea Baby’s nightclub on 1204 Murfreesboro Pike will close for good.

“This is very good news for the businesses and residents around that part of the Murfreesboro Pike corridor,” said Metro Nashville Police Department Chief Steve Anderson. “This club had negatively impacted the safety of its neighboring community for far too long and was a drain on the resources of the Hermitage Precinct.”

In a criminal court hearing this afternoon, attorneys representing business operator Paul Eichel and property owner Nancy Cook agreed to terminate the lease immediately.

The site was previously home to Silverado's, another nightclub operated by Eichel. Silverado’s was padlocked in August 2011 after police received nearly 200 calls to the club during an 18-month time span.

Yea Baby had trouble with persistent fighting, drug crimes and other breaches of peace, according to police.

This will do nothing to reduce crime. It will merely scatter the assaults and shootings, creating even more problems for the police. At least when this club/indoor shooting range was open the violence that took place there was for the most part contained on a single property and created a one-stop shopping venue for cops looking for violent felons.

This will be a benefit to the neighborhood and area businesses. Good move!

My prediction is the 'bad element' instigating most of the problems will merely scatter at first, then slowly reconstitute themselves.

This will happen at either another problem establishment, possibly provoking violence if friction erupts between the newcomers and the regulars, or at an otherwise peaceable establishment where the owners are unable to stand up to the rowdy crowd, creating an entirely new problem site.

Padlocking the place is, I agree, probably good for the neighborhood, but will, as also stated, merely temporarily displace the problems.

Perhaps some undercover work could have garnered enough incriminating evidence to place the worst, most violent perpetrators in state, or perhaps even federal custody for a few years and away from law abiding citizens.

I can't help wondering if the possibility was even considered, as the benefits would have been longer term than just the lull while new hang outs are selected.

Ask, the problem is that nothing will stick due to over crowding in the jails and prisons and these guys will just go to court and charges will be dismissed or they'll be back out again in no time flat with no probation officers checking on them.
