If you report people like the murderer to Casino security downtown, they will evict you from the property while allowing the murderer to use the facilities. I can confirm that Linq and Palazzo will both favor criminal thugs than innocent people in their property. Allied Universal Securoty, as a company, is disgraceful. They should be condemned from operating at properties downtown. Bad security leads to incidents like this.
