A few questions about 86ing...

  1. He didn't say "robbed." Robbery has a specific legal meaning; it means theft facilitated by assault. He said they took his chips and ejected him. If they told the cashier to keep his cheques and not pay him, we're not talking about an act of robbery because there was no assault. If a security guard pointed a gun at him and told him to hand over the cheques, that would have been robbery and reservation or not, the Mississippi state police or county sheriff would have entered the property and made arrests.

    I'm sure there have been, but how many of the successful complainants were tribal members or their agents siphoning money out of the reservation's treasury? We may never know. I do not believe a paleface who gets screwed at a casino on a reservation that exists only as a legal cover for a casino is going to get fair treatment in a civil suit.

    In general I agree. But I believe the Indians who run casinos are savages. And the non-Indians who run casinos are savages. Do you think the casino managers who aren't affiliated with reservations are honorable and fair-minded? Being an American Indian doesn't make one a saint, but in the case of casinos it allows them to get away with things any other casino would like to do but can't.

    Didn't a reservation in New York have a shoot out with the local authorities that tried to enter their jurisdiction?
