BREAKING NEWS – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – The city of brotherly love is one step closer to getting rid of bulletproof glass in many of its small businesses. “No establishment required to obtain a Large Establishment license … shall erect or maintain a physical barrier that requires the persons serving the food either to open a window or other aperture or to pass the food through a window or other aperture, in order to hand the food to a customer inside the establishment,” the bill states. The city’s Public Health and Human Services Committee passed a bill that enables Philadelphia’s Department of Licenses and Inspections to regulate the barricades that stand between customers and cash registers in many neighborhood corner stores. The ACLU is praising Philadelphia’s decision, citing that “bulletproof glass openly discriminates against thieves because the barrier unfairly singles them out, simply because they are non-paying customers.”
