I thought this would be Brazil type stuff. Whole new level of stupidity here.

All I can say is be situationaly aware and stay safe. The are low IQ people out there that take "Not giving a fuck as an art" to a whole new standard.

Yup we saw it at the Bellagio a few weeks ago. We were like what in the fuck are these people doing. They were rolling 4 or 5 wide thru the damn casino.

Anyone wanna guess what will happen if someone’s says something?

When I lived in San Diego and the Raiders would come to town the TV would be full of commercials of shops slamming security gates putting bars on windows you name it and it would say the Raiders are coming.. lol

I’m old enough to recall when the Mob controlled Vegas. There was little or no crime. At least not street crime. Ladies could safely walk from the casino to the parking lot at 3 am. They shouldn’t even think about doing that now.

Ok, here are FACTS:

1. Hood rats are coming from CA and other places to Vegas, trying to start a fight, robbing folks, just acting a fool.

2. they at times rent houses, lie about being a church group, and have a hood rat party, just look at LA, shootings, etc. at short term houses.

At Belliago they walk down in the casino, bump against folks trying to start a fight, pinch women's asses, etc. And yes, I got this from a casino source.

They rent luxury cars for 1 day, tend keep it for a week then split, some are used in crimes. One rental car company had 4 Maseratis damaged in 1 week, a Porsche in a hot and run. Much more.

And YEs, all are Black, facts to not change. I do HUGE business in the rental car industry, they are getting killed on luxury cars damage, shootings, hit and runs, you name it. And in LA too from out of town fools.

Business owners are just trying to deal with it. Metro PD is well aware of this.

Lots of truths here. But.. not just from LA. It’s anywhere their $600 a week will allow them to fly from. Lawlessness can go anywhere when you don’t have to work, pay rent and get paid 400% more than when you did work.

Jesus, Where do I start:

I grew up in Vegas, and this is sickening. I worked in a casino in Security when I was 21. We were still owned by the Elardi family. We had AR15's, one for each officer. We were armed with sidearms, every one of us. We had every tool imaginable, and would have never let this happen on our property.

Times have changed.
It makes me really sad that these idiots are taking over my home town.

I was in Vegas 2 weeks ago with my wife on a weekend. We just stayed at TI, nothing special. I thought all the thugs were there because the rooms were cheap and it was the weekend. We also saw a scooter gang fly by us.

Anything that's cheap or easily accessible gets ruined. Especially in America and other countries that don't appreciate civility and culture.

This is why the river is still good, and why country clubs and anything else that's private and costs money is the place you want to be. Sad but true.

If I go to Vegas in the near future I'd probably go to the Trump hotel or the Mandarin Oriental or someplace without a casino so I could get away from these dickheads when I'm not gambling.

After that incident at the encore about a week and a half ago they raise the rates and up security by 40%. It’s all happening up and down the strip. Security is way up.

This is what happens when you get a democrat Governor that cares more about Illegals, Thugs visiting from California, BLM and Defunding the police as has been his views for years even before he was Governor vs protecting the citizens and working on the crime level in Nevada especially in Southern Nevada (Clark County) a major democrat supporting city..........he is a wannabee Newsom and crime in the entire Las Vegas Community has increased 3 fold at minimum most unreported.......Trust me I deal with Gangs and these Thugs from all over especially from Cali that visit Vegas for the last 18 years and it is worse and worse every year..Metro is so under staffed it takes up to 2 hours to get a response for a Firearms/Assault/Battery/even attempted Murder related issues.....Citizens in Vegas are flocking to CCW and Firearms training classes to educate themselves on how to protect their families at all costs and I think that is a great thing..you know the old saying "I rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6" If you do come to vegas do not hesitate to carry your firearm even in a casino just make sure you conceal it well enough....(if you have a recip ccw good in NV that is)...the worst the casino can do is ask you to leave and trespass you for a max of 1 year...minor price to pay to protect yourself and your family that is for sure...

Seriously ? Not sure how you missed it, even ran stories about on the news and in the Tribune. It was like as standing joke, everybody close your blinds and lock your doors, the Raiders are coming to play. Like the old westerns when all the townspeople would disappear off the streets before the gun fight at high noon.

Las Vegas Mob Story - Many years ago I played in a band which got good enough to appear in Vegas. We played The Sands. We were produced by Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, just a really good guy. This particular night Bill was in town and up in our dressing room just shooting the shit with us between shows. Knock on our dressing room door. We opened it and there stood this guy in about a 2K suit with his "side kicks" and a big cigar in his mouth. No shit, Straight out of Goodfellas. He asked for a member of our band, Scott by name. Scott stood up, had no idea who this guy was, said yes sir and walked to the door. The Goodfellas guy reached out, smiled and shook his hand. The guy said he had recently been in a meeting with Scott's Dad. His Dad told him Scott would be playing over at The Sands. The guy said he just stopped by to meet Scott and ask if there was anything at all he could do for us. With that he said his good byes and left. All this time Medley stood on the other side of the room wide eyed and his mouth wide open. We had no idea who the hell that guy was, but Bill knew exactly who he was. Bill said how in the F does that guy know your Dad!!? Scott's Dad was President of Zapata Contruction, they were doing a major rebuild on one of the huge Vegas hotels this guy was "involved with". He had in fact been in a meeting with him just days prior. Bill explained to us, The Goodfellas guy name was Moe Dalitz, also known as "Mr Las Vegas". Google him, he pops right up. He couldn't have been nicer or more polite. Although Howard Hughes owned the Sands at that time, we learned our "visitor" still controlled much of Vegas. I'll never forget it. Doubt if Medley ever will either. Moe Dalitz died in 1989. I doubt if he and his "friends" would have put up with the shit that is going on in Vegas now.

Remember this, for the most part Jews and Italians control Las Vegas. Not the mob, but still a group of very savvy folks, in a few ways an old boys club, yet they get along. I am a life member of the Italian American Club of Las Vegas, quite the place.

Just to add one more pretty amazing part of this Moe Dalitz encounter. Those who have seen Goodfellas and Casino likely realize a good part of the back ground music was Louis Prima. So, who was appearing opposite of us back then at The Sands? Louis Prima. No BS. When we were off stage they were on. From our dressing you could easily hear Prima with Sam Butera and The Witnesses playing live in the background. Not a recorded sound track. It was them. Great memories.

Friend and his wife from Vegas came out this weekend. He’s on a tear buying up handguns and ammo. Had some really cool hardware that we spent the afternoon playing with

Saw them all over during our July trip, inside and outside of casinos and even more so in August.

We're going to Vegas in October, November and December. I'm hoping things will not be too bad there by then. I just want to gamble a bit, drink a lot and have a good time. Not have to watch my back, so to speak.

Just stay inside the Casino 😂 We saw quite a few at the Bellagio (Sccoters & Gangsta's & Gangsta's on scooters) -BUT walk across the street and holy hell its ghetto. That stretch between MGM and Planet Hollywood has gotten worse. You'll get a free contact high if you want one though
