    Where were the Bouncers and if the fight started inside the police should been notified before it even spilled out into the street. If there were Bouncers they should of removed the aggressive mob out first and when it's clear then they should let the other party out after the street of aggressive mob has clear. If the Lounge has no secuirty i believe they should get License and experience security guards. Not for the liability but for the protection of the clients and workers in the establishment. I know i am Head of Security in a Bar/Lounge in NYC and i see all the time you always have to be on your feet ready to take care of business. Really folks always watch your intake know what your limits are before you wake in the morning in a world of trouble. God Bless everyone!!!!!!!!
