It's gambling for heaven's sake! What is the big deal. It seems like a safe enough past time to me. Nobody got shot,stabbed or anything else. There are worse things that the law can focus on if you ask me.(not that anyone did)

How long have you been living in a houseboat on THAT river in Egypt?

It would appear that you have been there for a V-E-R-Y long time,

If they're Italian; is that 1/2 black and 1/2 white...can any of the racist posters answer that? and, is that suburban crime or rural crime? why doesn't it say "Italians arrested in gambling plot" like it would for "Black men arrested running Tunk game"? Or, "black men arrested for drug ring? what a crock.
