Gym Owner Bans Cops From Working Out

An Atlanta gym owner has banned police officers and military members from working out at his facility.

Jim Chambers put up a sign on the door of EAV Barbell Club that used an expletive to announce that police aren’t welcome there. Chambers told WXIA-TV that his gym caters to minority members and since they feel uncomfortable with law enforcement that he doesn’t want them around.

Chambers has taken the sign down due to its vulgarity, but plans to replace it with a clean version.

    Can’t wait until he gets robbed, then who is he going to call? Best not be the cops

    Of course they feel uncomfortable with cops nearby, most have drugs, warrants, stolen property and revoked driver licenses.
