This is the "New Vegas" since October 1st, 2017. Over zealous untrained security guards and metro cops out of control.
Tourists are telling us they will never come back after being harassed, strip searched and witnessing Las Vegas Metro Police put a man selling water into a death-style "choke hold".
Do you feel that Las Vegas Metros "Zero Tolerance" approach to street vendors affects tourism? If so, how?
Ken Strauss, a former WSOP Champion, was arrested and detained on July 27th for sending a joke tweet that sounded like a threat.
Ken Strauss was banned from every casino in Las Vegas after this video posted. In an outrage, Ken sent this tweet:
Do you feel this man is a terrorist threat?
Las Vegans were hit with an explosion of grasshoppers. The question many of you have been asking is “what is the difference between a locusts and grasshoppers ?”
Well, they are in fact one in the same.
Locusts are not a species. Locusts are, in fact, brown grasshoppers that have developed gregarious behaviors as a result of overpopulation.
Drought drives locusts to crowd in small areas where there is vegetation. Locusts then abandon their solitary phase as grasshoppers and reproduce at dramatically high rates forming bands of nymphs and swarms as adults.
When grasshoppers begin reproducing at these rates, they become locusts. These are why people fear locusts, not grasshoppers. Locusts have been disastrous to crops.
Rakim Athelaston Mayers a.k.a. Rocky A$AP was arrested and detained in Sweden . While on tour, Rocky was followed and attacked by a group of fans that resulted in an altercation. Rather than letting the visiting artist leave the country, the all Swedish Government has decided to detain Mayer’s in their prison system until trial.
Thank you, everyone for all of you continued love and support. The JediJoyRichShow loves you all!
Last month, a security shot and killed a homeless man 15 times and did not report it to police. This is not an isolated incident.
JediRich was looking for an adapter for his headphones. We keep everything in a junk drawer that has been passed down for generations. Obviously.

Las Vegas Raiders Stadium Back on Track and Ahead of Schedule Thanks to the Hard Work of the Third Shift
Full story coming up.
Las Vegas Stadium: $40 Million Over Budget
Big hotel corporations cannot succeed in Las Vegas. Chains like Hilton, Marriott, Westin, and Ritz Carlton have left the Las Vegas strip because must have found out that you can’t earn an honest living without “drip pricing”. The only way businesses survive in Las Vegas is to scam either the guests or new investors. Resort World, The Harmon, The Lucky Dragon, The Drew, The Fountain Bleu are all recent examples of when greed meets ambition.
Drip pricing is a technique used by online retailers of goods and services whereby a headline price is advertised at the beginning of the purchase process, following which additional fees, taxes or charges, which may be unavoidable, are then incrementally disclosed or "dripped". The objective of drip pricing is to gain a consumer's interest in a misleadingly low headline price without the true final price being disclosed until the consumer has invested time and effort in the purchase process and made a decision to purchase. Naïve consumers will purchase based on headline price and sophisticated consumers will consider total cost when comparing offers. Drip pricing can distort competition because it can make it difficult for businesses with more transparent pricing practices to compete on a level playing field. (source: Wikipedia)
On March 23rd 2019, Rick Velotta of the Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote:"Critics who thought the high-priced season tickets and personal seat licenses wouldn’t sell in small-market Las Vegas have been proven wrong. Aguero said PSL sales continue “to be not only on track, but beating expectations relative to the PSL proceeds overall.”
Indeed, the authority transferred PSL proceeds to construction accounts as agreed upon in the state’s contracts with the Raiders, turning $25.5 million over to the team in January and $37.7 million in February.
Room tax receipts continue to track just as the authority’s financial experts had projected. After 22 months that included a downturn resulting from the Oct. 1, 2017, shooting, room tax proceeds are 0.6 percent ahead of projections at $93.9 million through January."
Last year at this time, the Stadium workers were not on a 24 hour a day schedule so they could get home before the Sun came up. Because they are behind schedule, the workers are risking their lives in deadly hot temperatures.
Las Vegas is high desert climate. We are at an altitude of 2000 feet. That means when it’s 103°F it is actually much more intense that that. It’s like when you’re in the mountains. Or when you are drinking alcohol at altitude. You get drunk faster.
The workers work at 400 feet in the air: So when it’s 103°F at 2000 feet, it is exponentially hotter at 2400 feet.
This is akin the City Center. They made workers switch to a 24 hour schedule. Twenty-three workers died in six months. If someone doesn’t protect these workers, then workers will die.
