Casino Sign Shooting

| | Comments (0)
There's a casino around my parts that's back in the middle of a residential neighborhood. It makes no sense that it exists there. It's another of many gross offenses pushed on the citizenry because of this nonsensical "sovereignty" nonsense that the federal government keeps pushing for Indian tribes.

They placed a huge lit-up sign next to the freeway a couple of months ago, pointing people in the direction of the casino. Last week it was lit up for the first time. Many of us think the sign is illegal because it is in direct violation of state codes, but they get away with it, just like they got away with the casino in the first place. And a lot of people are mad about it.

I was driving home on Wednesday, and I saw the sign, and the lighting in it looked a little dim to me. I thought to myself, "I wonder if someone shot it up," and for 0.68 seconds I entertained the notion of doing it myself. I wouldn't, because two wrongs don't make a right, but even us androids can be tempted.

I found out this morning that in fact, someone did shoot it up, sometime between Monday and Friday. I am not sure if they shot it up before I saw it on Wednesday, but I suppose it's possible, as the look of it prompted me to think what I did. (And no, it wasn't me!)

And unfortunately, I cannot report what I know to the authorities, because the tribe's own police force is handling the incident themselves, and I do not recognize them as a valid law enforcement authority. (Side note: if the shots were fired from non-tribal land, I'm pretty sure that even if the culprit is a tribe member, it would still fall under county sheriff jurisdiction, since the firing of the weapon was on county land. But I am not sure.)
