This isn't the first case there, and sadly won't be the last. To suggest any connection between the casino and this outrage is, IMO, a little unfair. One has nothing to do with the other.


I wasn't trying to say that the majority of folks behind the casino being brought to the area would do something like that. What I was trying to say is that it might be a minority of pro-casino people that would do something like that believing that if it became too much to keep repairing the damage done to the park that it would be abandoned. It's the type of mindset some of the folks in the age range Imentioned around here would do in order to remove resistance to something they wanted going in, and is typically a minority thing here. If there's no opposition to a particular project, or at least no major opposition, then the project will go through. So rather than physically bully folks, vandalize property. As it gets expensive to keep repairing the vandalism, maybe folks will give up on it.

Like I said, I'm probably seeing a conspiracy where there is none.
