Last weekend a tourist was brutally beat and robbed outside of Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip, in what has become an almost nightly occurrence on the Strip.
The man, who was visiting from Arizona, was brutally beaten by a gang of at least 4 thugs who after beating him stole his backpack, iPad and Macbook. He suffered a Concussion, bruised ribs and an enlarged spleen as a result of the attack.
A nightly occurrence on the Las Vegas Strip
Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. In fact, in a Facebook post about the attack, the victim says Las Vega Metro police told him this is part of a string of attacks where gang members are targeting tourists with beatdown-style robbery attacks. We can confirm this, based on the dozens of people who have anonymously contacted us over the last couple months, telling us they had just been robbed and beat either on the Las Vegas Strip or inside of a Las Vegas Strip casino.
In fact, a number of our sources who work as security on the Las Vegas Strip say they feel helpless, as upper management has allowed known criminals and homeless addicts to have free reign of their hotels, out of fear of being labeled racist for kicking them out. Other security officers have told us that when they do try to call Metro, no one ever shows up.
During our 15 months of reporting on the chaos caused by the Sisolak shutdowns, we have personally witnessed these gangs and homeless addicts stalking victims inside of billion-dollar hotels as security and management stood by and did nothing to prevent tourists from being harmed.
Is this what they mean when they say “Vegas is Back”?
Keep in mind, when you see that term being used on social media by local “journalists” and local bloggers, they are straight up lying to you, and they know it. The fact is, and I won’t name any names, many of the so-called local Vegas bloggers are PAID by certain casinos to push certain narratives — others are given loads of comps and free shit to toe the line! They are bought and paid, and are afraid to stop getting invites to events, free drinks, meals and rooms!
The fact is, Las Vegas will not “be back” until:
- We stop pretending this isn’t happening and start putting major pressure on our local media to cover it and major pressure on our local politicians and leaders to CLEAN UP OUR CITY! — we list all of their contact information in this article.
- We stop allowing them to use the COVID scam to kill our economy.
- We bring back conventions and business travel and stop catering to people who come here to start trouble.
- We stop allowing MGM to dictate local laws and we put pressure on our politicians who have allowed MGM to disarm law abiding citizens and have made it impossible for them to protect themselves on the strip! Thanks to MGM, criminals know that they have nothing to fear when beating you to death in Las Vegas, MGM helped make it safe for them!
We can pretend this isn’t happening, and people can bitch and moan about our reporting like us talking about it is the problem, but for the tourists who are beat and robbed, have to see homeless people masturbating in the streets, have to step over drug addict bums who just shit their pants, there is no sugar coating what they see with their own eyes as they walk on the Strip. No matter what local bloggers want to claim, these people are not coming back after witnessing Sisolak’s new Vegas!
