Police violence and Gentrification in Las Vegas

The line between local capital and the local PD is never a long one–the latter’s raison d’etre is the former. Having lived a long time in Vegas, I can tell you that nowhere is it any shorter. The casinos  own the cops, the courts, city hall, everything, and make no effort to disguise it. Police power was so rampant that the joke around town was when you entered Las Vegas you left the 20th century and the U.S. proper. It’s the wild wild west, only wilder.
