A Las Vegas police officer is on life support after being shot by a thug on the strip. Until all the protestesting dies down, the strip or even downtown might not be very safe. Especially if they implement a curfew. Hope the officer pulls through.

Upon further review, poster suspended for making a political statement. Per the Martingale policy, seven days.



I admit I don't get this one.

Because we don't want to insult looters?

It's all about keeping short sessions and hit-and-run.

Mr. Wizard, the rioting, looting and protests affects Las Vegas and the casino significantly. Aside from 9/11 I think this is one of the biggest events I can remember here in the United States. Please allow an area for us to discuss this. You can always it come up with some guidelines and even block specific members from the thread if they get too far out of line.

Protesting, rioting and looting may only be discussed to the angle that it affects casino openings and security. If you want to discuss it in a broader sense, take it to DT.

There is no armed security in Pennsylvania casinos? Las Vegas casinos might have problems if there are protests nearby. Looters getting anywhere close to the cage is not one of them.



Apparently they always have at least one state police officer in an office somewhere in the building Iíve heard the bottom floor or something like that. Something something

They all have a state trooper on site at every Pennsylvania casino.

They are usually plainclothes. The two who came and got me in 2016 were

They were not prepared for any type of rioting/looting situation Imo.

(I was released without charge once they verified I had not committed the crime the casino accused me of in case you are wondering)

The title of this thread has been changed to "Casino security and Covid Crime." I'll be watching this thread carefully to ensure compliance with the rule against political statements. Comments should be limited to how current events affect casinos and gambling.

Las Vegas police have been firing CS gas and rubber bullets this week, downtown and on the strip, with little to no rioting or looting going on around. My guess is if there were riots on a casino floor and it got to the level of looting the cage, as WMW was talking about, someone would be firing lead, either armed security or police, and it would end very quick.

Can you shoot someone for breaking stuff in a casino? Normally, they'd just have to deal with a couple violent patrons at most.
