We the friends and family of Tyree Wimberly are coming together to fight back and seek justice for our loved one whose life was taken from us outside of an establishment known as "Scoobies Gentlemen Club" on January 26th, 2013. This supposed place of business has posted operating hours of 4pm-12am. We don’t understand why there were still people in and out of that club on that night when it was well past 12am. We can’t help but to think if those hours were strictly enforced, just maybe this...

We the friends and family of Tyree Wimberly are coming together to fight back and seek justice for our loved one whose life was taken from us outside of an establishment known as "Scoobies Gentlemen Club" on January 26th, 2013. This supposed place of business has posted operating hours of 4pm-12am. We don’t understand why there were still people in and out of that club on that night when it was well past 12am. We can’t help but to think if those hours were strictly enforced, just maybe this tragedy would have never happened to our loved one and we would not be saying our goodbyes to him on February 3, 2013 at his funeral. We would still be able to see him and have opportunities to have a conversation with him, his mom and brother and sisters would get to hug him again, but we don’t get to do that anymore, due to someone coming out of that club after hours and killing our innocent friend. Due to that Tyree will not get to see his 2 month old son grow up, he won’t get to experience all the good and bad moments with his son and fiancé. He won’t get to be there for all his sons 1st: His first words, his first birthday, his first job, his first girlfriend, his first anything. Tyree was a good caring man with a warm heart and trying to make a change in his life for the better, so that he could support his family. All that came to an end on January 26th, 2013 because of a person coming out of the club decided to kill because Tyree didn’t want the marijuana that was being forced on him. On that day Tyree took 2 bullets to the chest, one to the heart and one to the lungs. Our hearts are broken. After Tyree was shot he laid in his friends arms on the cold ground right outside the club as he bled, his last words to his friend were "I'm shot, call 911" he was transported to St. Luke’s hospital where his family watched him take his final breathes and slowly drifted off, Tyree was pronounced dead at 3:40am. So we are asking that something be done about that place, it has closed and re-opened so many times over the years. It should just stay closed for good. That place has been the scene to drugs and robberies and many other activities over the years, now it can add murder to that list. We don’t see that place getting better anytime soon. When we ask for something to be done, we don’t mean shut it down then re-open it under a different name a few months later, we mean never open it again. Maybe put a little sitting area there with some benches and flowers; make it a place to bring together Allentown and Bethlehem. No one wants a strip club bringing the cities together, so please help us get justice for our loved one. Please take this into consideration and help us get closure for our loved one who was taken too soon. Please don’t just ignore us, wouldn’t you want something done if you were in the same situation or would you just allow it to pass you by and have this possibly happen to someone else’s family, don’t make another family have to plan their loved ones funeral.

the next petition should be for fundraising money for a memorial park in tyrees name. Put plants there a few benches with his name engraved in them just a decent place in memory of such an amazing person who was taken way too soon!!

There's numerous reasons why. The garbage around the facility. Broken bottles on the ground glass where kids can get hurt. Late night arguements every time there opened . For years it has been a disturbance & hazard to our community . I've lived in this community for over 20 years an will not sit another day and watch nothing be done.

SHUT IT DOWN! Would you want this in your neighborhood, for your kids to see, for you to have to deal with? Our children are exposed to so much sex and things all around them, television, magazines, advertisements, the lists go on and on. Then we wonder why the world is the way it is and why are children are having sex younger and younger these days. By all this exposure, they have no other way to think, but that of, there is nothing wrong with this. This is the message that is being drilled...

IT IS WRONG, AND MORALLY WRONG. STAND UP FOR THEM AND YOURSELVES. SIGN THE PETITION! LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD, OR NOTHING WILL EVER BE DONE ABOUT IT. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO MANY ISSUES IN NUMBERS.

Good Luck to the ones who are trying to shut this place down because you may had an uphill battle on you hands since it does not have a license by the State Liquor Control board because customers brign in their own alcohol in. Scoobes is also located near Westminster Village a Presbytrian home for the elderly where my mother-in-law lives. Not exactly good for them either.
