Cannery robbed

So it seems that the Cannery in North Las Vegas got robbed at gunpoint Friday afternoon. See here and here for the few details available.

The first word that popped into my mind when I heard this: HA!

(For those who may not know my history earlier this year with said establishment, read the posts here.)

I suppose the Cannery's official line will be that these thugs undoubtedly were skulking about days in advance, stealthily snapping pictures of the murals and other decorations, thus justifying the Canery's practice of apprehending all people caught engaging in such obviously nefarious activity.

Here's how I see it: If their idiotic security guards didn't waste time and manpower harassing and detaining perfectly innocent people doing perfectly innocent (and legal) things, then maybe they'd be available to stop the actual criminals who are committing actual felonies on the property.

I note that these crooks got away. Seems the Cannery security forces aren't quite so bold and brave at stopping people from leaving if they're carrying guns. "No, you just go right on ahead to the nearest exit, sir. We don't want to bother you. Besides, there are a few Japanese tourists taking pictures of each other at that slot machine over there. We're going to be busy taking turns flogging them in the back room for the next hour or so. We certainly can't let that sort of thing go unpunished! Here, let me hold that door open for you, as it seems that your arms are full of bags of loot. Thanks for coming and have a nice day."

Again I say, HA!

I bet your picture and file even now are in the high priority pile as Cannery security tries to identify possible suspects who might have masterminded this plot.

Incidentally, I'm starting to believe in corporate karma.

The way the Cannery treated you was awful.

That being said, in fairness to the security detail, confronting armed gunmen inside the casino would have been a bad idea as it would imperil the safety of innocent bystanders inside the casino.
