Star Casino violence is worse than its reported official crime rate

Tags: Australia, Star Casino, violence.
Posted on Friday, November 04, 2016 by "T".

The Star Casino has been accused by the NSW liquor and gaming authority for not reporting to the authorities every violent incident that occurs within the complex. This intentional failure to report by the casino skews their statistics over the official crime rate.

In a leaked government documents, it reveals that Sydney's Star Casino have been covering up many of the violent crimes and assaults that takes place within their casino compound.

The reviewed violence by the NSW Government shows a number of serious incidents. The crime rate that happens within the casino grounds is three times higher than the official crime statistics. The crime rates within the casino are way above national averages.

Justice review leaks by the NSW Department suggest serious ramifications for the casino's license to operate in Sydney.

Some of the violence that occurred within the casino property that rates highly includes forced removal of player, assaults on players or staff, and alcohol-related crimes. Even so, most of the 111 recorded violent incidents during a 6-month period from March to August this year, were not reported to the police.

One incident that was not reported included a casino security guard head-butting a gambler. Other unreported incidents involved a patron whose leg got broken in an altercation, people being put to chokehold, and a melee that involved five patrons, just to name a few.
Additionally, 79 percent of the violent incidents that occur within Star Casino grounds get omitted on the monthly report to casino executives, a report that also gets passed to the State Government.

According to casino experts, the figure only suggests that an estimated 250 violent assaults takes place each year once the busy summer period gets taken into account.

Failure of the casino to report all violent incidents to the authorities creates an inaccurate statistic level of violence occurring in the casino. The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research suggested imposing a crime scene preservation condition on the casino's license. This will require all violent incidents where a person sustains an injury, get reported to the police.

Who could imagine that in a glamorous casino as the star Casino happen so much violence, violence committed by the very security of the casino, I always wanted to go to Sydney know the casinos but this price so much violence is difficult

Never expected to read something like that for a casino Smile
When they mentioned incidents, first thing came in mind was from drunk people.
They get drunk a lot there Smile
I wonder why they still operate. What happened to the laws?

really? thats not unusual. frankly said its exactly what you have to expect at gambling. pissed people who lost their money, looking for trouble to release their anger.

nothing new anyways, thats a common method to gloss over a report or not to report (just as politician do). they want familys as new customer, not only gambler.

The Star Casino? Is it located in Sydney, Australia? I thought the establishment had a good reputation. Not anymore?
People tend to get angry when they are hungry. Everyone should try their buffet, The Harvest Buffet (formerly the Garden Buffet), that features five live food stations offering a selection of international cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week.

I think that this might happen quite a lot in other establishments as well. No casino or other big profile businesses want this sort of negative exposure and they try to keep it quiet
 pajalnick11/5/2016 11:33:38 AM GMT
I also think that the incidents occurred and occur everywhere ... only this casino published its story violation .. and other casinos simply do not publish their crime .. that's all

Well teddy im not a regular in casinos, but the fe times i have been i havent
experienced anything like this from either side. Players or casino staff.
So for me it is unusual indeed. It either you run a business where everyone can enjoy and have some
fun or not.
And clearly this is not the place.

There are all kinds of different casinos out there operating with different goals for different groups of people inviting different people in - the one teddy described is just as common as the one you did. It's about location and focus.

well should we really be expecting casino reporting their own security personnel snapping off customers balls when they try to mark cards or use fake chips? surely some of this not reported crime is nothing more than necessary measures that leave our community more educated and with less balls.

It says a lot about the Casino crime rate, if they don´t reported their statistics. It seems, that they won´t reported the crime rate because they have to much bad news in the public. But everybody knows what happened behind "the wall".

Considering that many more important things out there which could have casue you sadness then I think you should feel a bit more happy than this tbh. This news is not that serious...

actually there is no evidence that any of the above mentioned turtles have anything to do with the star casino violence that has taken over the official crime rate and gone through the shingled roof. therefore we can state that until any turtle has been found guilty, they can enjoy total freedom.
 damosk11/9/2016 7:22:41 PM GMT
So! What is required is a period of openness transparency and honesty, so that people who read about these stories can actually have some full detail of the alleged crimes that have been allegedly committed and allegedly not reported so that the context of each event can be truly and honestly considered and understood so that a properly informed opinion can be make.

if the customer rarely notice something, then it has been a professionell security personal.
there is no need of security if things like that would not happen..

Maybe the teenage mutant ninja turtles moved to the neighbourhood so the crime rate should drop rather than increase. It makes no sense this way.
