    Chukchansi Gold casino near Yosemite stormed by 20 armed men in Indian faction dispute

    http://abc30.com/news/chukchansi-gol...people/346840/

    Basically there are 2 rival factios of the Chukchansi tribe that have been fighting over control of the casino. The "losing' faction, ousted since August, decided to show back up with guns and storm the place over the weekend.

    The casino is now closed until further notice.

    It's located in Coarsegold, which is just south of Yosemite National Park. The casino is pretty much the only happening thing in Coarsegold. I stayed there about 10 years ago and was not impressed.

    Hearing in Federal Court resulted in Casino to remain closed for 2 more weeks minimum. 50 employees of the casino apparently will be allowed to work and get paid (guessing essential staff) while over 1000 others are left hanging and its apparently causing some serious heartburn and consternation in the area due to the large monies the casino provides.

    Hells Angels vs The Mongols at Harrah's.

    Businesses that make money by collecting & selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.

    This occurred at Harrah's Laughlin in 2002. Laughlin is a riverfront community right next to Arizona, about 90 miles south of Vegas. It typically attracts more of a blue collar crowd than Vegas does.

    According to the Wikipedia article about the matter, the Hells Angels showed up there to confront the Mongols, because they heard the Mongols had been harassing vendors selling Hells Angels related merchandise.

    That's funny - I go to Chukchansi at least 2-3 times a year because my parents own a house in the area. It's actually a nice casino except for the fucking blue hairs and scooter people smoking cigs.

    The Pala tribe has been split over the same sort of ongoing disenfranchisement actions on the part of the tribal faction that runs the casino operations, trying to cut rival groups out of the profits by disclaiming their tribal heritage.

    And yes, that's the same Pala tribe >> would-be Cali online poker provider Pala Interactive, run by "bad actor" James Ryan (formerly the CEO of UltimateBet, and later PartyGaming), with Phil Ivey as spokesman.
