    Mrs. and I are thinking about picking a fight down at Harrahs AC with security and getting roughed up on camera so we can be on ABC News and 20/20 and sue for lottsa cash because we're just harmless,helpless old seniors.
    Trouble is Mrs. JG is pretty good with that kickboxing and I'm a pretty big guy so we may end up hurting a few of those rent-a-cops and get sued ourselves. Were just gonna have to take a dive as they used to say in boxing.

    As much as the Atlantic City market seems to be struggling, I know they had to just love that story. (Especially Harrah's)

    I think it's terrible what those guys did, especially since those people apparently did nothing wrong. Keep in mind though there's a reason that hotels hire them big, burly guys for security.

    Just start screaming "I paid good money" and "I know my rights" over and over in front of security and that should do the trick. Easy money for assault by security guards.

    Is this a new one or are you talking about the one with the couple with their daughter?

    This seems to be all too frequent at Harrah's AC...like they're trying to recreate the Vegas of the mob run days but even then I don't think the whipped on people in public

    Harrah's AC security paid a visit to my wife and me a month or two ago. It's the burly guys in suits you have to watch out for. The security folks in uniforms won't brutalize you like the suits will. The security folks that visited us were a cute lady about 5 feet tall and 120 lbs and a young man about 6 feet tall and 160 lbs. It took us a few moments to realize that security was there because of us as we didn't feel we stepped over some line. The security folks were pretty cool and can't fault them for anything that went down. It was some other Harrah's employees that caused the ruckus due to their incompetence.

    The part of the story I am missing here, is why were the folks booted from the Hotel. I heard something about a mistake that showed them not having a room.
    Even so, the guests should have been able to provide a credit card number or room key to prove they were guests.

    The physical handling of the guests were completely offensive and enough for me to boycott Caesars properties in AC for the foreseeable future. After that video was leaked, I would
    have expected CET to put the head of security in a different role or suspended him. It's pretty clear nothing the guests did rose to standard of physical abuse and over aggressiveness that the security team used, the guests were outright assaulted by casino employees.
