I think this thread is very important. It is illegal and has been going on for years! And as one or 10 games are broken up 20 more are started. So gamming commissions fbi etc...(whoever) spends taxpayers money like dogs chasing their tails! If this problem isn't going to be solved!!! Than FIX IT! Arresting some people having games isn't the answer! More will start and less will go down! The only clear answer that came out of all this was... It takes 3 years to bust some folks playing cards and taking some enjoyable entertaining time out of their stress filled lives! Poker is a lot more than gambling a mind teasing mathematical game thats extremely fun and educational!

You're right. This thread is important. But can we get a rational debate from BOTH sides? Gamblers and the people upset about it? And can we get some original perspectives that aren't stolen from a politically motivated news or police report?

<quoted text>Well if any cops are actually involved in any illegal gambling themselves then the other cops on the force will just lie and cover up for them anyway. Its not like the courts dont automatically agree with the cops side of the story every time.
Thats no sh!t there.

There used to be an illegal poker ring that ran up in the 12pt area a few years back. The story went that one particular individual ran it and a particular mayor allegedly had knowledge of it, did nothing about it due to the person kicking money into his campaign fund. When things got hot, the organizer was informed to lay low. Several officers were involved as they did private security there, in addition to playing as well. Pretty sure these people are exempt from prosecution. Gotta love TH..
I remember hearing about that. Wow.

There are still certain people in high places that nothing at all will be done to that were involved. That's just how Terre Haute is. Corrupt, ignorant and proud of it. But then again in cities ran by sane people gambling isn't something that's fabricated into a major crime for anyone. This is all politics and maliciousness.

Its likely to be never. They protect they own here. They like to sacrifice a scape goat sometimes if they have to but not those at the top that allowed it. Unfortunately thats how Terre Haute is ran anymore. Laws dont apply equally to all here. Furthermore there are no examples out there to prove otherwise......yet.

I find that when one resorts to the grammar card as a rebuttal, the other player must have struck a nerve and therefore must be right. Otherwise you would have stated where and why the other guy is wrong. Also, the other guys post was easier to read than yours. If you have something to say, say it.

Same old lame remarks.
In case you misunderstood my comment it simply pointed out the consistently poor language skills thus rendering it difficult to consider valid.
Had my comment been a rebuttal it would have included those points as well. If you are experiencing problems reading you should consider glasses or a return to elementary school.

Again, it was a comment on the posters lack of .... intelligence. Nothing more. Pointing it out might encourage the poster to improve his skills.

I stated what was wrong.....SPELLING AND GRAMMAR. End of critique, nothing more. I can't stand people who choose to stay in the bowels of elementary knowledge when they easily could spell better just by looking at the words laid out before them. By the time you are an adult you should be exercising better learning habits. People are getting sloppy with spelling and grammar. That's just another sidetrack for the middle class to lose the ability to gain education. That's the politician's goal, to dumb down the middle class. Be vigilant ** Stay sharp
