Patron: Downtown Bar Scene Sketchy

I'm 26 years old, and don't look particularly old for my age.  I despise the inconvenience but I *should* be carded every time I go into a bar unless the employees already know me.  I do need to give a shoutout to The Torch here, because I've been going there for years, and they all know me there, but still card just to be on the safe side.  I have a friend who has been going there even longer than I have, and he forgot his ID when he walked down one night.  Even though everybody from the dancers to the managers knew him and I'd already paid his cover before he arrived, they wouldn't let him in.  There are two bars in town where I've never been carded/Anonymous Downtown Bar Patron. More here. And: You can find the latest Downtown Coeur d'Alene Bar Report, for April 2-18, here.

Question: Should Coeur d'Alene police do more to rein in downtown Coeur d'Alene bar scene?
