2 Las Vegas security guards fatally shot in hotel-casino

Above is the site address to a story dated December 30, 2017. It reports the death of 2 Casino Security Officers at Arizona Charlie's by ambush. One Officer was armed and the other was not. It is now almost a month with no word on what has happened with the suspect, nor the case. If one of the officers had lived, the casino would have found a way to fire them for some bullshit that's not even their fault. But, that is what Las Vegas casinos do as a regular practice; Fire Staff to protect themselves and leave innocent people hanging. Which is why Unionizing Arizona Charlie's Security team will be next on the list. All everybody seem to care about is the shooting at Mandalay Bay. It was good thing that shooting happened here because the greedy profit mongers only care about money. So, finally a white guy snapped and shot its customer to finally make them listen to Security expert who have always said to tighten up security at your door or there will be seriously bad issues. Well, it happened October 1, and I truly hope it happens again. Then, and only then, will Security issues/subject will change for the better. I will update my information as soon as I get it.

2 Las Vegas security guards fatally shot in hotel-casino

Two Las Vegas security guards were fatally shot Saturday while investigating a disturbance in a room at a hotel-casino and the suspected shooter is facing critical injuries after turning the gun on himself, police said.
The gunman's motive wasn't known but investigators believe it was an isolated incident.
"I want you to know right now that this has nothing to do with terrorism," Capt. Robert Plummer told reporters outside the scene of the shooting.
The shooting happened before 7 a.m. at Arizona Charlie's Decatur, which is located west of the Las Vegas Strip. According to police, the suspect, Christopher Olague, ran from the hotel-casino after the shooting and into a nearby neighborhood where he tried to enter two homes but the residents were able to keep him out.
Police found him in a laundry room accessible through a garage of the second home after he appeared to have shot himself in the head, Lt. Dan McGrath said.
According to McGrath, Olague tried to enter the first home with the intention of stealing a car and also tried to take a vehicle on the street.
Police described Olague's condition as a "non-survivable wound."
The victims' identities were not released. Police said the uniformed security guards were a man and a woman in their 40s and that one was armed. Their identities and their causes of death will be released by Clark County Coroner's Office.
McGrath said the circumstances of what happened in the hotel room still unclear.
The hotel-casino's office did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
The shooting comes a day before law enforcement officers expect tens of thousands of New Year's Eve revelers on the Strip and three months after the city dealt with the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Officials have been trying to reassure residents and visitors that the city is safe, especially in the wake of the Oct. 1 shooting. A high-stakes gambler killed 58 people and injured hundreds more after he shattered the windows of his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino on the Strip and unleashed gunfire on a country music festival below. He then killed himself.

Security guard who found Vegas gunman was alone and unarmed: 'I was just doing my job'

An unarmed security guard at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino was the first to take on gunman Stephen Paddock, getting shot in the process, but providing crucial help for police looking to stop the massacre.
The security guard, identified as Jesus Campos by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, was shot in the leg after Paddock fired at him through a door, police said.
Police said Paddock managed to fire off over 200 rounds as the security guard approached the suspect's room alone. But the guard managed to direct police to the exact location of Paddock's suite and even provided a hotel key to officers looking to clear rooms on the 32nd floor before they insisted he get medical attention.
Reached by phone Wednesday night, Campos told ABC News, "I'm fine."
The guard who found the shooter and helped bring the massacre to an end said, "I was just doing my job."
Campos provided information over the phone that helped authorities locate the 32nd-floor room that Paddock was firing from, a spokesperson for the union said. 

Campos was on "random patrol" as a security officer at the hotel when he found the shooter, said Liliana Rodriguez, who identified herself as a coworker of Campos' at Mandalay Bay on a GoFundMe page she set up for him.
Campos went to investigate a door alarm on the 32nd floor of the hotel when he "came under fire," Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said in a press conference Friday.
McMahill called Campos an "absolute hero" who was "doing his job, diligently."
"I can tell you that this was a remarkable effort by a brave and remarkable man," McMahill said. "We haven't done a good enough job recognizing his actions."
Campos was unarmed when he engaged with Paddock, the union spokesperson confirmed, which was first reported by The Daily Beast.
"Any one of us could have been in the position he was in," Rodriguez wrote. "Most importantly we are a home away from home and at the end of the day we are a team and we should all go home together."
Speaking Thursday evening, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo praised Campos, saying he aided officers in their search for Paddock.
Lombardo added that Paddock fired "well over 200 rounds" into the hallway when the security guard approached. Paddock had set up a camera in the hallway, apparently to watch for approaching authorities.
"It's amazing" that Campos didn't sustain more injuries, Lombardo said.
"His bravery was amazing," Lombardo added. "He gave our officers the key card for the room and then continued clearing rooms until he was ordered to go seek attention."
On Sunday, about 22,000 concertgoers were attending the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip -- across the street from the Mandalay Bay hotel -- when Paddock began his deadly assault.
It took authorities just minutes to locate where the bullets were coming from after the attack rang out. Once police breached the door to Paddock's suite on the 32nd floor of the hotel, they found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A total of 58 people were killed and hundreds were injured in the attack. A motive is still not known, but police said the shooting was "obviously premeditated."
ABC News' James Hill and Michael DelMoro contributed to this report.

We Love Locals. We HATE our Employees. (especially Security Officers)

Here's a new business slogan.
Station Casinos..."We love Locals. We Hate our Employees!"

Yeah, people. How would you feel if a company buys your company and sends everyone a very ecstatic email stating, "We are so happy to be apart of the Palms family that we will be giving all hourly employees a pay increase effective next pay period." 15 cents. That's right Fifteen cents! I don't know about you, but a pay increase to me is anything over .25 cents, but .15!? What the Fuck? To those who believe in that "Be positive" crap, cannot be more wrong in the assumption that .15 cents can make things better in their lives. In the real world, sure, extra money is extra money. so thank you. To make it an extravagant gesture that they are doing us a favor is utter bullshit. 

Well, most of the citizens of Las Vegas do realize that Corporations are worst than the Mafia. At least, they treated employees with respect, not with smiles and lies. Then, fire you without a care in the world because everyone is EXPENDABLE. It's true. Twenty-five years ago, it was better here. 

I hate casinos.

Casino Security Officers REALLY think

I thought it would be nice to let you know what all Security Officers are thinking when you waste our time with your bullshit answer/questions. A Security Officer main job is to Observe, Report, and Deter crime. Unofficially, an Officers job is to answer questions that come upon them from civilians. We all realize visitors lose 75% of their IQ points once arriving in Las Vegas, but its still no excuse for losing Common Sense. What you bastards need to do is read once in awhile. You do have smart phones, don't you? Use your damn phone once in awhile instead of playing Candy Crush all the goddamn time.

Below are some questions every Officer hear from the general public;

Question: Where is hotel check in?

Answer: Turn to your left. The front desk for check in is right there.

REAL THOUGHT:  Are you fucking blind? Look to your left. The damn front desk is right there.
Question:  Where is the bathroom?

Answer: Right behind you.

REAL THOUGHT: You're an idiot. You walked right past it. You need to go to the bathroom so bad that you can't look up from your fucking cell to see you're standing right next to it. Behind you you dumb bitch. And, put your shoes on.
Question: Could you help me with my bags?

Answer: Sure.

REAL THOUGHT: Do I look like a fucking Doorman to you? I am not a Bell person. I'm not Valet. I'm not the fucking Doorman. Go to the front desk if you need that shit.
Question: Who won the Golden State game? (Cleveland game? Red Sox? Steelers?)

Answer: I don't know sir. If you go to our Sportsbook area you can find out there on the TV's.

REAL THOUGHT: How the fuck would I know? Is it because I'm black, I'm supposed to know every goddamn game score in the country? Fuck you man. Go look it up yo damn self.
Question: Where can I catch a cab?

Answer: If you go back to the Main entrance. It's outside on your left.

REAL THOUGHT: Remember where the cab dropped you off in front of the hotel? The same damn place. Shit ain't change.
 Question: Do you have the time?

Answer: Yes. It is 2:47.

REAL THOUGHT: You fucking kidding me. Look at yo damn phone. All that damn texting and you can't see the time. Fuck me.
Now For Something Completely Different.
On any given night (mostly weekends), all Security must check guests Room Keys before anyone up to the Hotel rooms. If a person refuses to show the key, we must call Dispatch to alert them that a possible non-guest is going to the room floors. 

In most cases, we're correct that they are up to no good. Here is one such instance;
Security: May I see your Room Key please?

Guest: Why the fuck you need to see my room key? 

Security: Per Hotel management. This is for the safety and protection of our guests who are staying at the hotel.

Guest: I've been here for 4 days and this is the first time anybody ever ask me for my room key.
REAL THOUGHT: Just show me your goddamn room key and get the fuck outta my face. 

KEEPING IT REAL THOUGHT: Holy fuck! Is that an impossible request? You know what, don't show me. When the next crazed homeless person or pimp or drunk hoe comes around. I'll personally give them your room number so they can go to your room and fuck you up. Then, when you call Security. We ain't coming. So fuck you, and your husband...bitch! Welcome to Las Vegas.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of reading about my real life experiences as a Security Officer in a Las Vegas casino. After Super Bowl 51, I'll more than likely have more beautiful stories for you to read.

Welcome Mandalay Bay Las Vegas

BEST news ever in Las Vegas! It is about damn time. NO MORE should Security Officers be a victim of work abuse, disrespect, being underpaid, penalize for taken sick leave, getting fired for doing your job wrong, and for doing your job. Security Officers STAND UP and TALK HARD.

Welcome Mandalay Bay Las Vegas

Tuesday, December 6, 2016


Well, here I am at the Palms resort casino. When I first got there it was okay, but being part time at 20 hours weekly at $12.26 hourly, does not exactly pay the bills. You know, I have 3 jobs in total to make up for the pitiful work hours I have with the Palms. 

Anyway, this past weekend was one of the busiest in months at the Palms, which was good for business, but not enough Security Officers to work it. For example, when there is overtime offered. Don't expect anybody from Day shift to come and help. Those bastards won't ever help out the Swing or Grave  shifts for any reason (I know its a choice but security officers need each other more than other departments). Hell, word at work is "don't rely on the Day shift officers. They will never help out". I'm finding it to be true. Most of those old fucks won't quit so guys who could really prosper with the Day hours can the Day hours. I don't like those guys. If they ever ask me to help out, I'll make a deal for them to come to Graveyard to help out. Damn, I lost my thinking.

This past weekend we had the UFC fight at the Pearl, and I was posted at Palms Place lobby to check Door Keys. Well, been there for only a lousy 10 minutes and my first guest I ask to see his door key. He says, "I didn't see you ask for their keys." Now I know I shouldn't respond to a childish remark from a fuck head guest but I did. "Sir, as you can see the key is right there in their hand, and they just come from the Front desk." That did not make him happy at all. So, while he showed me his key and walked off, Jojo the Bellman walked up. (I haven't seen Jojo in about a month. We started work there together) so Jojo and I punched fists and said to each other "so it begins". Mind you, I quickly wrote that last customer off like always because I don't care about these goddamn jackasses. Would you believe that man heard me and claimed I was referring to him and what had transpired with him. Jojo looked at me and I looked back thinking, "What da fuck now?" He said, "You're talking about me, huh?" I said, "Sir, I'm not referring to you about anything. I was talking to my friend whom I haven't seen in about month" (i really don't have to say anything that detail but screw it). He says, "I want to speak to a manager about this." I responded quickly, "The Hotel manager is right there at the desk, there you go." And, off he went......bitch. I don't have time for this shit. 

I go back to Jojo and we continued to talk and he ask me what was that. I told him, all I ask was for his Door Key and he gets outta shape by referring to me that I didn't ask the people in front of him. When of course I did (when people leave the front desk from checking in, you watched it go down. Why ask for the key when you ca see it in their hand?

Well, he went to the Assistant Hotel Manager to complain about absolutely nuthin', and the manager used to work Nightlife Security so he knows this guy is all about nuthin'. After about 20 minutes worth of talking, he finally went to his room. The manager told me don't even worry about it because he's not furthering the subject. (Majority of guests assholes don't even further complaints unless they want some kinda comp). Can you believe I was 10 minutes at my post....10 minutes. Then this.

till next time.
