Not really much detail yet on this "developing story". About 3:00 a.m. last night a guy was approached by three men and shot, and cell phone and wallet taken, right in the Palace Station parking lot. Victim is in hospital, condition unknown. The fellas seem to be getting pretty bold over there.

"The possible suspects were described as black men possibly driving a four-door vehicle, Hadfield said. No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting, police said."

Coincidentally, I was planning on a Vegas trip next week and was thinking about the Palace Station. There's still time to change my vacation plans. I hear Fallujah is lovely this time of year.

Actually, "War Tourism" is a growing industry. You can find it if you look hard enough.

I doubt the Palace Station incident is rare in Las Vegas. Crime is reported to be rampant throughout those areas where crime flourishes. Surely Las Vegas is consider an area where crime flourishes. All the gambling, prostitution, drugs....it has to attract said element of society.

Wow. I frequent PS just about every time I do to LV to eat from their Oyster Bar. I occasionally stay there as well. I guess I'm going to reduce my visits to daytime only.

It's also worth noting the victim was parking a motorcycle at the time. Not to say a car would have saved him but it would make him less vulnerable.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.

Right. If there isn't at least one robbery or shooting here in Detroit a day, there's something wrong.

It is such a small price to pay for the joys of diversity, hey hey.

Here in California I always notice Security at the Indian casinos I go to. They're either driving around in little golf-cart-type things or riding on bikes, but if I was a team of robbers I would think a casino parking lot would be the last place I would want to ply my trade. Like I said, that seemed pretty friggin bold.

Anyway, something tells me there is more to the story. Not much details yet, but it just doesn't sound right.

Wasn't it a few years back that OJ made a stupid move to steal back some of his memorabilia there also?

Behind PS there is some older cheap apartments and housing the neighborhood is dark and sketchy. 20 years ago it was old dark and sketchy I can imagine how bad it is now. Just on the opposite side of Sahara it's like a different city.

The other night I stopped at a Rebel as station over near Charleston and rancho the one next to Frankie's tiki room.

I noticed they had an unarmed security guard dosing off in a chair. I swear this guy was 70 years old. Seriously why bother? (thank god he was unarmed or someone had a free gun opportunity )
