The beating was administered by a Native American Guy who was NOT in uniform, and was built like a fullback.

If he had the appearance of an American Indian, he is no relation to the "tribe" that runs Foxwoods. They are mislabeled Negroes.

I personally KNOW (as unmitigated fact) of a Card Counter who
was severely beaten at Foxwoods, about a decade ago. The irony
was that his brother who is an attorney in Hartford, had the task
of visiting him in the I.C.U., (where he was recovering from internal
injuries and multiple fractures), that he had NO legal recourse.

Some Indian casinos in California, have been caught "red-handed"
[no pun intended] cheating the public - without consequence.
The most amazing of which was one tribe that admitted to using
MARKED CARDS, but refused a California attorney a refund
of the $74,000 that he had lost.

Last year I was detained for hours by casino security staff, with the
assistance of a State Police detective. Yes, Indian Tribes always
have the option of using OUR courts, police, etc. - at THEIR discretion.


"Abandon hope all ye who enter here."

This man speaks the truth.. Sons of bitches.. Last year on my birthday I had an incident with security in a parking garage.. I got arrested (DUI/ slightest degree) and had to go to a city court completely off Indian land. They also had highway patrol there as "backup".

Default A Bit of Vindication

I made several posts about a month ago talking about the importance of not being greedy. The responses hurt my feelings and I did not post for a few weeks. I am sure to the delight of many!

I guess one needs to throw a lot of camo, don't stay to long and not be greedy

General Custer thought he could ride through indian country with 100 men, one needs to know their limitations!

More like 645 fighting men. It was an ugly day for both sides.

Custer underestimated how many Indians he was up against, largely due to misinformation and miscommunication. And as CP points out, he had more like 700-800 men, but he was still greatly outnumbered.

Default Thought or Stated

I think Custer or another US general? stated he could ride across Indian territory with 100 men.

I think I found a/the quote by Fetterman of the Fetterman massacre fame.
"Give me 80 men and I can ride through the whole Sioux Nation"

The point being to perhaps not be to arrogant in Indian casinos or greedy?
We perhaps can learn a lot from history.
