BDN interviews Glover for article about gun violence in Bangor

Robert Glover, an associate professor of political science at the University of Maine, spoke to the Bangor Daily News for an article about what Bangor can do to prevent gun violence at the city’s nightclubs. Glover, whose research focuses on democratic theory and political engagement, said, “It seems like the ball is in Bangor’s court now. If you have those businesses resulting in a pattern of violent behavior, is that what you want for your community? … If you suspend Half Acre’s or Diamonds’ liquor license, there’s no other revenue stream for them.” The state’s liquor licensing division has launched an investigation following a shooting outside the two Bangor nightclubs last weekend, the latest in a series of violent episodes that have happened at the Harlow Street property the clubs share in recent years.
