After triple murder, Baker talks about permits for parties
BAKER- The city council began discussing requiring permits for teenage parties following a triple murder where three teenagers were killed in March.
City leaders will work with legal representatives to draft the ordinance before it is introduced and put before a vote by the council. Leaders hope it will essentially force people to have police present at parties at venues. It would not require permits for house parities.
Investigators have said security was an issue at the deadly party at the Baker Civic Club.
"It's for the safety and protection of our children," councilwoman Joyce Burges said.
