Enough Already : More Shootings on The Strip

Two more shootings took place on The Strip this weekend (no, not Steve & Miles' podcast) further tarnishing Las Vegas' reputation and potentially sending tourism by occasional visitors to Orlando, or maybe even Macau.

Some people are calling for an increased police presence on the Strip, which the LV Metro says they don't have the funding for. If you don't have the funding to protect people who come to your city to lose thousands of dollars playing Tabasco slots, then I guess we'll start booking our trips to Atlantic City or Reno.

Violence in any way shape or form is the lowest form of human behavior. Be this shootings, beatings, rape, bitch-slapping, hair pulling, carpet bombing, hand grenades or satellite guided missiles. Our culture has the potential to be undermined by a handful of trigger happy douche bags whose hopeless attempts at gaining respect will inevitably ruin everything for everyone.

Leave your guns - both metal and flesh - at home, assholes.



Comments & Discussion:

I still feel safer on the Strip than I do in my Vegas 'burb, which supposedly isn't that bad as far as 'burbs go although it's been getting hairier in the past six months. Metro has been pretty unreasonable the past few years. "Give us a raise or the city will become a crime cesspool!" "No." "Well then, I guess we'll just make our living by pulling over the people doing 105 on the freeway." "Thank god for that."

I'd like to know where all the weapons in these cases are coming from, and more particularly the perpetrators. We were told pretty quickly that the person behind the Luxor car bomb was an illegal immigrant, but on these cases there never seems to be much of any confirmation for whatever reason.

After reading the article, I'd bet the Bellagio that the persons involved were gang-bangers.
