I just had my life threatened violently for sitting down and having a sandwich at an AA club after a meeting. The club manager did nothing. When I asked to use the phone to call the police, a bunch of ex-convicts just sat there, laughed and said, “You can’t buy this kind of comedy anywhere.” When I got home, I called 911, who instructed me to go to the police station and file a report, yet little could be done about it. The police know this kind of violence and intimidation goes on at Alcoholic’s Anonymous on a regular basis, yet continually do nothing about it. Instead, they send more violent criminals into the rooms through our court system so they can beat the system knowing that AA has no way to police or warrant the behavior of any of it’s members. I personally feel local government needs to intervene to stop this dangerous practice.
