Shooting of Indian Man at a Bar in Olathe KS

Back in the early 70s, God I am old, I worked  for a security company as a patrol officer.  I forget the name of the bar but it was in Olathe (KS) and near the  Olathe Naval Air Station.  I had to go into the bar at about 2 AM and clear everyone out.
The bar always had a lot of people from the military base.  I did not look forward to closing a bar filled with marines but it was my job.  I can remember a few young USMC men saying they were not going to leave.  I was in my 30s.  I think any one of those 18 year old marines could have kicked my ass.  I just told them it was my job and they were done drinking for the night.  If they got up from their chair I just turned the  chair over and put it on their table.  
I made it without getting into a fight.  But I was glad when I moved to a different job.

I wonder if that is the bar where the Indian man was killed the other day.  Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was shot at a bar in Olathe.  It was a hate crime.  

See the CNN story.

  The shooter is reported to have said “Get out of my country.”

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
