Downtown Las Vegas has gotten much better in the last few years, I think many of the reader's who have posted haven't walked Fremont between Main Street and 8th in awhile. The area is safe and a lot of work has gone into improving the area. I'd feel safe walking it with my wife, kids, grandparents - anyone. However, once you go East of 8th street the area does turn bad quickly, and gets worse the further east you go. The shooting in the story took place about 2 miles east of the Fremont Street Experience. The area doesn't really improve again until Fremont turns into Boulder Hwy and you come up on Sam's Town and the East Side Cannery which are both great places if you haven't been there.

What the idot should have said is, "people shouldn't blow their money on the Illinois Lottery, or the Illinois casinos in Elgin, Aurora, Joliet, Rock Island, East Peoria, Alton, Metropolis and East St. Louis Illinois. All Americans should probably stay away from horse race tracks in Chicago, Collinsville, Maywood Park and Cicero, Illinois. I mean people should really avoid Illinois if they need to pay for college and feed their families..............
