Two years ago, Jedi Rich was walking to the Raiders Allegiant Stadium to take photos. He was attacked by 3 men; two African American men one mixed Asian. This was in broad daylight on Valley View and Tropicana. No one stopped to help. The LVMPD (police) took over 30 minutes to arrive. Jedi Rich waited but then left the scene when no one arrived to help.
The three men confronted Jedi Rich demanding his Nikon camera gear stay with them. In typical fashion, Jedi Rich disagreed with their assessment. So one man pelted Jedi Rich in the back of his head with a large rock the size of a cantaloupe. The 2 other men struck Jedi Rich in the back with a golf club. While repeatedly taking blows to the back & head, Jedi Rich got away by curling up into a ball, reaching down into his fanny pack and grabbing his iPhone 8 Red. Jedi Rich flipped around and pointed the camera in landscape indicating to the attackers they were being recorded. Jedi Rich then scolded them for being so rude and disrectful. He told them they need to be nice to each other. And they drove off.
Jedi Rich Lightowler changed his life after 9/11 to follow his passion for modeling, art, photography, music, video and filmmaking.
