I have always been a fan of downtown and have stayed there at least part of every trip taken to Vegas in the last 30 plus. We have enjoyed it for all the same reasons everyone else does but I honestly don't remember it ever being such a freak show. It was honestly getting to be irritating walking Fremont especially out in front of Four Queens this weekend. Both sides of the street lined with people begging in one form or another with their signs and stupid outfits trying to outdo each other. One guy was even trying to juggle bowling balls over the head of a guy laying on the street, only a matter of time before that goes bad. To the couples that were using their children in the strollers as pawns to get money, why dont one of you go look for real work instead of spending 8 hours out on the street begging other people for their money. It was sad and I can't see how this can be a good thing for the area. In previous years none of this was ever allowed, security would boot them off and make them move on their way. I want that back for Fremont!
