This is why Atlantic City can’t win:
Early Thursday morning a shootout in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip left three dead and six wounded.
This is bad enough, but according to the Huffington Post: “The incident marked the latest violence on the Strip since the beginning of the year. Two people were critically wounded in a shooting at a parking garage Feb. 6, and a tourist was stabbed Saturday in an elevator at The Hotel at MandalayBay.”
Were you even aware of these other two events? I sure wasn’t. That’s because the media chose not to make a big deal about them. But last year, when two Canadian women were stabbed to death by a deranged homeless woman on Atlantic City’s Pacific Avenue—something that could have happened anywhere--news outlets including the Daily News portrayed the tragic murders as proof that AyCee is a hellhole of unrestrained violence and danger to unsuspecting tourists.
