There is a Bad Moon Rising in the Vegas ValleyPosted: 29/04/2023 Filed under: Las Vegas, News | Tags: Writing, Blogging, Writer, Crime, Murder, Homicide, Las Vegas Places 9th in Nation for Murder Rate, Crime Rising in Las Vegas Leave a comment
Las Vegas is clearly a dangerous place to live and visit. Visitors and locals alike need to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings.
There have been several recent attacks in and around Strip Casinos, in the Fremont Street corridor and throughout the valley.
There have been countless unprovoked attacks, random selection of victims of shootings, stabbings, gang fights and multiple other violent conflicts against tourists, residents, police, and many others.
Simply put, Vegas Valley is NOT a safe place to live or visit.
Still, more and more tourists are going home in body bags or with large medical bills after being attacked.
The attackers are becoming more aggressive, and their targets are easy prey.
The Vegas Valley flourishes for but one reason, the tourist trade. Some local residents detest tourists, and it is not uncommon to see bumper stickers with negative statements about tourist. While we cannot pry the truth from those people’s cold hard hands, the fact to the matter is, the Vegas Valley only survives because of tourists.
Las Vegas is the epitome for defense attorneys willing to defend the predators against the victims without shame. The vast majority of judges are soft on crime. The local prosecutors are substandard. The city and county officials are the utopians of Oscar B. Goodman’s Don of mafia hierarchy and his wife continues to reign the throne with more than a quarter of a century of Goodmans being overwhelmingly elected by a people who care not about victims, but only about leftwing politics that patronize the unions, the city, county and state public workers and the hundreds of nonprofits that flourish here unchecked, unbound and with pure impunity.
One such nonprofit has received over 50 million dollars a year from the people’s tax money and donations and funneled by city and country officials to the hands of the corrupt and criminal nonprofits and slumlord properties.
HELP of Southern Nevada takes in millions of dollars a year, fully funds clients that are violent, drug dealing and drug users, alcoholic and obese, freeloading on donors and the taxpayers, without any structure to guide these “clients” to a useful and productive life and without any agendas to move them into work programs and self-sustaining lifestyles.
There are hundreds of nonprofit organizations in the Vegas Valley with the top head skimming and scamming millions of dollars of the people’s money in their own pocket and no one is investigating them.
The IRS, which is supposed to govern these so-called charities, turns a blind eye.
I have tons of raw videos showing the drug dealing, drug use, prostitution, criminal acts, alcoholics, violence, and hundreds of able body persons riding bicycles, and doing things the “disabled” wouldn’t be able to do while they freeload the system you the taxpayers and donors fund, and yes, Martha, bodies being loaded in body bags right outside my window.
There is no will or desire to shut down slumlords or their illegal operations. The city, county and state benefits too much from them, the unions flourish because of them, and the public workers, nonprofits and medical professionals all make their living because of them.
The murders and the rising death tolls are nothing new to this 89101 zip code neighborhood which is DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS. There have been runaway crime rates for decades and as long as the soft-on-crime judges prevail and the mismanaged METRO police department continues to run the way it has, that crime will continue to increase.
Smiling Joe Lombardo lied his way all the way to the Nevada Governor’s seat and now he is proud to claim his wonders worked in collaring crime in the Vegas Valley and greater Nevada. The truth is Lombardo, and his lack of experience and intelligence is the cause of constantly increasing crime in the Vegas Valley.
In 2010 this neighborhood in 89101 and 89106 in Downtown Las Vegas were listed as the 3rd, 4th and 8th most dangerous neighborhoods in the United States by the FBI.

Every day, first responders are on this property, police, paramedic, fire department and others, and no one reports any of the violent and life threatening or life taking activities… no one!
Many public records were falsified to cover up the continued crime and play it down. I have footage of serious gunfights and assassination attempts by drug gangs on this property that were never reported in the news or even significantly investigated by LVMPD under either Lombardo or Gillespie command.
If you don’t fight crime it is going to grow, and Joe Lombardo and his forces let crime grow and get out of hand and it is still growing.
But in all fairness, Vegas police were defunded and under funded like the rest of the nation’s law enforcement forces during this period of WOKE and soft on crime era that still continues despite more people are stuffed into body bags,
Am I recommending a DO NOT VISIT LAS VEGAS strategy? No, I am not. Rising crime and violence is growing all over America and all over the world. The powers that be force the rest of us to worship their crime lords and take a soft-on-crime attitude rather than have sympathy and compassion for the victims and their families.
Metro police department spends more time and taxpayer money on cons and ex-cons and zero on victim’s welfare. The entire utopia is the same way, many of them government agencies and government workers, public workers, creating nonprofits that channel millions of dollars into their hands to skim and scam while pretending to be doing something about the same problems that has existed for decades and will continue to exist.
These people retire years before the average private sector worker, with more money, more fringe benefits, and more luxury than most people can even imagine.
Some crimes are just unstoppable. Recently a government worker murdered a journalist who was writing about him and exposing his corruption. How could something like that be prevented? There have been many teachers and other public workers, police, firemen, and others, arrested for engaging in sex with minors and doing other evil things.
There have been a number of alleged suicides by government workers when the heat on them became too hot. I say alleged because sometimes these deaths are truly suspicious.
There have been several cases of public workers caught with their hands in the cookie jar stealing sometimes millions of public dollars, often on gambling and other vices. You seldom hear about these cases again. They often get lost in the news of forever forgotten.
Judges and DAs and other ranking officials have had their names in the news for one reason or the other.
One female public defender was discovered sleeping with her client, a gangbanger on trial for some crime and he became her “boyfriend.”
There is no stopping the adventures that happen in Vegas. Sometimes it stays here and sometimes it doesn’t. Since the invention of the internet and cell phones a lot more gets out than used to, but still there is an overwhelming effort to keep the lid on things.
Should you move to Vegas? I do not recommend it unless you do so by a job transfer, and then I would not pull up roots entirely in your old hometown, if that is where you are coming from.
The Vegas Valley and Alaska run neck-to-neck on being the number one place for spouse abuse and attacks on females. Divorce is as high as crime and often crime is involved in domestic disputes. One year Alaska leads. The next year Nevada leads and Vegas is the primary hot spot. These two leaders of domestic spouse abuse have teetertottered back and forth for decades.
Too, the Vegas Valley, like everywhere else, has mental health problems unshackled. The mental health problems are monumental, and growing. I have my opinions on this subject, but I don’t think the public has had enough violence to listen yet. Too frequently, case after case, the perpetrator is assessed and evaluated to see if he is competent to stand trial. More often than not he is not and that means he gets a lighter sentence and different treatment for being insane while someone who is sane that did something just as crazy meets his maker and judgment much quicker.
Our justice system is antiquated and while we frown on capital punishment, we call ourselves civil while innocent people are butchered in cold blood and tortured without defense or compassion as the predator gets the full support of defense lawyers, court law and soft-on-crime judges and a sympathetic society. The victim gets nothing except weeping family and loved ones.
I would seriously think of a different place to go if you have children. Vegas is hostile to children and children are victimized by a host of violent crimes, including at school. For the sake of your children, you need to give really serious thought before loading up the car and packing your stuff.
The Vegas Valley has been at the bottom of the list for schools and education, sometimes dead last. Drugs run rampant in schools. Racism is high.
Visiting and moving here are two different thing. What I would suggest is to take a leave of absence if you can from current work at the hometown, either move your things into a local storage or accommodate your home and possessions somehow. If you rent instead of owning it, it may be easier.
Then come to Vegas and rent an extended stay or low-term lease and settle in for a few months to see how it works out. You can always go back home or send for your possessions, and you will be on solid grown and be better informed. You may like it and may work out. You may not like it and you have an out.
Either way, you don’t box yourself in this way.
In the “Newsroom” link in the navigation bar, or menu are a few links to local news media, print and TV. Search your search engine and find many more and then tune in on a daily basis and monitor the crime happening here in Vegas and keep tabs on it. The murders, the robberies, the rapes, the whole busload of violence. That way when you come to visit you can have a better idea of what to expect and what to do to reduce your chances and your families chances of being involved in crime. Of course random crime, which is much of what happens in Vegas no one can be prepared for.
What Can I Do to Prevent Being a Victim of Crime?
- Research the internet until your fingers gets numb: “How to stay safe in high crime areas.” Write keywords similar to that and research all you can.
- Here in Vegas, travel in at least pairs or more. Never travel alone. Often multiple people are attacked at once here, but the sheer safety is in numbers. While one is being attacked, others should be on the phone calling 911. And know where you are at all times so you can leave directions to dispatch. Keep your phone on all levels for tracking and notification of location so police can track your pings.
- Search the local laws which change frequently and learn weapons restrictions. You cannot even have a pocket knife over three or four inches here. So be aware of your limits and plan ahead just how you will defend yourself if attacked.
- Often violence comes after arguments, and arguments come after people get drunk or someone says something to another that sparks anger. Try to avoid these conditions, which are difficult if you want to party and have fun. But keeping your mouth shut to others will probably keep you out of 99% of the trouble.
- Offenders are getting far more brazen than they were even just a few years ago. They attack in casinos, in front of security and/or police, they have no boundaries.
- Keep your batteries well charged on your phone and use the camera or video to record any attack while guarding your phone from being stolen. The evidence will be helpful.
- Staying in crowds is NOT always safe, criminals have knifed people on the Strip that were in crowds, complete random attacks. But being in crowds, again, leaves you with a better chance of getting faster help. But don’t expect a guardian angel as too often people just don’t want to get involved anymore.
