A man on a walkway over the New York-New York casino floor opened fire on the gamblers below early Friday, wounding three people before he was tackled by off-duty police officers, police said.
I have long been concerned about this. With all the drunks, compulsive gamblers, hassles, rude casino employees, rude losing patrons, and the general negativity in casinos, I am surprised that incidents like this don’t happen more often. But there is little a casino or any other business can reasonably do to prevent it.
Certainly the casino is blameless, unless it turns out that the gunman was a drunk who should have been cut off. So far, I have seen nothing to indicate that he was.
