What sheer and utter nonsense. Big crackdown on yet another victimless crime. Please note, simple marijuana possession, prostitution, and harmless social gambling have no business being made illegal, and no, something as nebulous as "society" as the victim is pure hogwash. Of course, several folks in this state swallow all the hogwash they can get their goofy mouths on, evidenced by anyone thinking your little boy Mitch is anything but a prevaricating weasel.

all gambling should be outlawed, you can bet on that.
indiana politics is as sick as it can get.
the state of stupidity shows how ugly it is again, and again.
ditch the mitch
And why is it that "all gambling should be outlawed", because it's against "your" beliefs? What about the rest of us who enjoy a little legal risk now and then? It's our money, and neither you nor the state should tell us that we're incapable of thinking for ourselves, just because there are a few who can't.

Mmmmm is there any similarities between these people, the people from madison county (today's paper stated they will not serve one day in jail) and the LEADER JOHN NEAL

Have to make sure the racinos have no competition.

They paid good money for that legislation.

This is the type of activity that should never be illegal, being none of anyone's business.

Interesting what led to the complaint that led to the investigation...patrons complaining about the machines. All those virtuous public service groups re-setting the machines so players win less than the law requires...
The machine was NOT in a Legion. Did you read the article? Open eyes. Shut mouth. Put hands in pockets (it will put a smile on our face).

Gambling is just stupid. I wouldn't handle the stools in front of the machines, officers. Use gloves. Apparently gamblers don't have sense enough to get up to go to the bathroom.
The lady at Caesers didn't, she just pissed on the chair. The Floyd sat in it!

The biggest gaming operation in the state is numbers. I'd bet you would be surprised to know IMPD does not have anyone who even understands that business. The pea shake houses are running wide open, business as usual. Having said that, when will the pea shakes be shut down and people charged as professional gamblers. Some have been in operation since the 1960's and are only receiving token misdemeanor charges. Charge some of these people with felonies and give them immunity to tell who they are paying off. The Star ingnores because they don't have any reporters that know or understand much about it either. Neither do the police department(s). There was a time when the FBI cracked them, but those days have passed. Stop illegal organized gambling. I am not talking about the family poker game, but professional games. These illegal operations are donating thousands and thousands of dollars to keep their favorite Indianapolis politicians in office. Somebody do something, please. If there is a state agency to investigate, do it NOW. It is much bigger than video gambling.
This gaming control unit is just starting with the cherry master problem. They might move on to other gambling problems once they have removed all these machines.

Daniels didn't sell the toll road moron...he leased it. And it works. Get a clue. You can say what u want about Mitch, but is is an economic genius. Shut your uneducated "pale in comoparrison" mouth until u can speak on the subject in an educated and intelligent fashion.
He didn't say ANYTHING about the toll road.

Guilty conscience?

Mitch HAS sold State property.

Sooooo... "Shut YOUR uneducated "pale in comoparrison" mouth until u can speak on the subject in an educated and intelligent fashion.
