It all depends where the casino will open up. Would you open a casino in Roxberry or Dorchester ? if so do you think the crime rate will go up ?? Once a week there is a major crime in Everett so if the casino will open up what do you think will happen? crime will go down or up ?
I don't see how Casinos effect local criminals...

I don't see the connection...

Most people who visit Casinos already have money and don't need to rob or steal from others...

Most are like vacationers...like in the movie where Chevy Chase takes his family to Vegas...

Where they have high class performers.

I think Casinos attract high class people, not low class people...

Prostitution, drug deals, robberies - should I go on?
I don't think so...most people who visit Casinos are 'high class' or the 'elderly'...

I doubt they'd have any interest in drugs or robberies or romance...

I compare it to the difference between the gamblers at the Bellagio in Vegas or the gamblers at Mermaids casino in downtown Vegas. Two completely different clientele. Which element do you really think that EVERETT will attract?

Now that Casinos are corporate owned...and not mob owned...I just don't see crime and casinos as having a connection anymore...

Most Casinos go out of their way to make sure crime isn't associated with their presence to counter that perception...and don't tolerate shady behavior of any kind...

But I do understand your hypothetical comparison...or contrast...

Reading this thread is unreal: I'm not sure why people feel only low life's gamble, I'm kinda sure that's not true, I myself do not but know many who do, vacationing in Vegas, going to Mohegan sun, how long was the race track around, or is that not considered gambling, if hotels meant there was increase in prostitution , then Disney land must be filled with hookers! What types of crimes would it increase, Im also sure that there would be alot of security, and as it is basically in a nasty area anyway, it's not like it will mar the scenery. There is already prostitution according to some other threads on here, already drug selling occurring, again according to another thread on here, do you a feel the people who come to gamble will lose then go just robbing locals, I don't think anything, will make all happy but try not to just look at the bad side of it, look at
Jobs that will be available,and as the owner is not from the city, I doubt it will just be friends of the powersthat be, taxes from the site
Clean up of the polluted lot it is currently,
The mess that the rotary would be fixed, maybe some traffic lights, police details, small businesses have a chance on getting in at the bottom floor, maybe some local companies hired to do some of th e construction, landscaping, electric, cleaning, plumbing, maybe donate money to various things in Everett, the sports teams, the hospital, this could help alot of the issues that are destroying the city.

They act like this is some Bogart movie scene from 1952...with neon lights and a sign saying 'Eat at Joes' just below the subway...

I agree with post 25...

In that most people who go to Casinos are well to do...
You never see poor people at Casinos...cause they haven't the money to waste.

It's usually rich business types, people on vacation, or retired bored couples on the penny slots...

Casinos are very strict in how they run their operations inside...

Until someone can establish the type of crimes casinos attract, that effect the safety of the public, than I say start building...

Criminals go where the money is.

That's why they hire a cop to sit at the Bank all day,
but not at the Library.

Casino = lots and lots and lots of money.

The rats will always find the cheese,
and the bigger the pile, the more rats.

Time and Space,
your post in the Yankee thread has me wondering if you even KNOW where Everett is.

What was the name of the department store that used to be in Everett Sq?

How about the ice cream store?

Movie theater?

Obviously the casino owner does research before he builds these, he not just going to drop it in the middle of a crime riddled, people getting robbed and killed, areas. It wouldn't be profitable for him. So vote against it and stop whining, but when the town it placed in get the benefits which would be jobs, new roads, hotels, tourist money, don't go there because you will be supporting other towns, not your own,do some research, older people move to casino towns, maybe they would build some over 55 communities, instead of what we have, which again would be a great benefit.tear down the empty buildings and put them there as well as some nice hotels, which do not generally allow prostitutes in for business. They tend to frown upon that.

CONSIDER THIS: You mention over 55 housing ... but you did not mention the cost of this or who would pay for this building of this housing....When I'm 55+, I don't envision myself living on beautiful lower Broadway .... The Village in Lynnfield perhaps but not lower Broadway in Everett.... Get real !!!
thanks for a chuckle

The most ardent casino supporter in this thread doesn't know Everett, Ma from a hole in the ground.

I asked questions that most people in Everett would know atleast one answer to,
but none of the answers could be googled very easily.

fwiw,

You are correct...I thought this was the Everett, WA town or city..I have no idea how I ended up 3000 miles away in Massachusettes (or however it's spelled)...

THANKS FOR A CHUCKLE: I, EVERETT RESIDENT, was looking for a response from CONSIDER THS, POST # 31 ... Or perhaps you can tell the forum who will build the over 55 housing, maintain them, pay for them, etc etc. Yes I would rather live in The Village, Lynnfield, MA - rather than in over 55 housing on lower Broadway, Everett, MA....

I suggest you learn how to interpret responses on this forum...

Maybe with proceeds from land sale, it can be built, Everett, does not have any over 55 communities , many of the over 55 are going out of state to buy these alternative housing options, again lost chances to keep Everett thriving ,

I wish I could get a special waiver to live in a over '55' age community...I'd much rather live in a older 55+ community than the places I have to some times live now...
