The bogus reviews of Los Mineros restaurant in Nevada City has forced Yelp to take action. After owner Reinette Senum criticized law enforcement (and later apologized twice), bogus reviews of the restaurant — which is popular and has good food — appeared on Yelp. “Photos of rats and cockroaches all stolen from the internet posted on Yelp as being taken at Los Mineros,” one resident wrote. And The Placer County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association called for a boycott of the restaurant.
I am disappointed to hear that the Nevada City Police Department and its “police association” — which is supposed to “de-escalate” situations — has not yet met with Reinette to “break bread” to begin a healing process.
You have to wonder what they are thinking: Soon the City and public safety will require Nevada City residents’ support for yet another sales tax increase, largely for public safety. You have to wonder why the Police and City are not working harder to de-escalate this situation ASAP and unify the community.
