ATLANTIC CITY & CASINOS - FROM 50TH IN CRIME TO FIRST IN THREE YEARS

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 09/25/2009 - 17:28.

If you don’t have enough reasons to vote against gambling casinos, Brian Rothenberg, director of ProgressOHIO, has some gems. As the fact that in the first three years of legalized casino gambling in Atlantic City it went from 50th in crime to NO. 1.

 

Oh, just what Cleveland needs, right?

 

He also notes that casino licenses in the U. S. typically go for from $300 million to $500 million. Why not, it’s a license to take someone’s money. In Ohio the price tag for a casino monopoly: $50 million.

 

Cleveland does everything on the cheap, why not this?

 

He’s got more info on his site here:
