Harrington Warns That Las Vegas Is Trouble

Al Harrington of the Golden State Warriors thinks there’s all kinds of potential for disaster with the NBA descending into Las Vegas for the All-Star Weekend.

“The biggest thing about Vegas is that there’s no police,” he said. “I don’t care what anybody says.

“They say there’s a police department out there. I lived out there for two months this summer and I probably saw one cop car, so it’s a free-for-all.”

“If people want to come in and start trouble, they’ve got a free pass because the only security or police … is in the casinos,” added Harrington.

“Anything outside, do whatever you want.”

  1. Ignorance finds it way to the front again. Yes, Las Vegas is lawless. You spent two months out in Vegas during the summer and “probably saw one cop car, so it’s a free-for-all”.

    I’m happy to hear Al didn’t see more cops. It means he wasn’t getting into trouble. To categorically suggest that one can do anything outside of a casino — “whatever [they] want” is highly ignorant.

    I’m hoping I don’t have to go into examples of the danger of blanket statements.

    Then again, Al may have said this all tongue in cheek and I’m just reading it wrong. Screw it. Vegas is anarchy. Knock yourself out.
