At one time I was in favor of legalized casinos. Unfortunately here in Philly one casino in particular has attracted predators who troll the casinos for winners and then rob them when they leave. They have even followed people home to rob them. Given Detroit's crime problems casinos are probably not a good idea at least in the city.

Fortunately, our casinos are well policed and people believe in the golden rule. Thieves generally wait until you are 50 feet out the door or even all the way home to your driveway.
