Petition to Revoke DC Fish Carryout’s ABC License
Neighbors and Friends,
As many of you know, based on strong investigative leads, DC’s Metropolitan Police Department executed a search warrant at the DC Fish Carryout, at 3475 14th Street NW. MPD found large quantities of crack cocaine on the premises. The defendants were Suk “Bruce” In Hyun, 54, the owner of the DC Fish Carryout who holds a DC license to sell tobacco and alcoholic beverages. The other two defendants, Craig McKoy, 43 and Timothy Diablo Hill Jr, 24, have extensive criminal records. All three are being prosecuted by the US Attorney’s Office, and felony convictions are expected in all three cases.
A group of concerned citizens discussed this matter at a recent public meeting. As a result, I have created a petition: Washington DC Alcoholic Beverage Control Board: Revoke the ABC License of the DC Fish Carryout, because we care deeply about this very important issue.
We’re trying to collect at least 500 signatures, and we could really use your help. If you live or work in the vicinity of the DC Fish Carryout, particularly ANC 1A, please sign the petition. It’ll just take a minute!
Why is drug dealing so prevalent in our neighborhood, but not in other parts of DC? It’s partly our own fault. When we don’t scream “NO WAY,” we whisper “okay.” Let’s send a clear message to the ABC Chairman that OUR children’s futures matter just as much as anyone’s, and we won’t stand around and allow businesses that support the crack trade to prosper through the privilege of a city liquor license.
Once you’re done, please ask your friends to sign the petition as well. Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word!
