    Default Las Vegas Strip increasingly violent since coronavirus pandemic

    Labor Day weekend a fight broke out involving over 20 people inside Encore Vegas

    and although the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has said violent visitors “will not be tolerated” after its downtown area command arrested 28 people and issued 27 citations on the Friday of Labor Day weekend, instances of violence on the Strip have been sporadic, but occurring far more frequently than in recent years.

    There was even a stabbing on the 34th floor of the Venetian in August 2020,

    and no one may access the Venetian hotel rooms without an active key, so this probably involved a guest in some way or another. Wynn/Encore is now implementing a similar system: "The [Wynn] properties will also scan all hotel room keys at elevator entrances so that only registered guests are admitted to the hotel towers."

    I think it has to do with lower priced hotel rooms - this leads to an ingress of lowlifes who cause trouble.

    Gun went off during struggle as a witness tried to get a gun away from someone who pulled a gun on another in front of an elevator at the MGM Grand. The witness managed to secure the gun but the two who were fighting got away.

    There was another shooting earlier in the week on the Strip, as one of two men who met a drug dealer make a buy ended up shot, as the deal went bad.

    And by the way, I found out that the stabbing at Venetian
