In Las Vegas.
How dare he do that to our town.
How dare he attack people who live here, who visited here, and people who just wanted to have a fun evening out.
How dare he use our town and then abuse it in the worst way.
I went to Life is Beautiful, a huge outdoor festival in Downtown Las Vegas about 10 months after the shooting. There was a tangible police presence during the festival. Police on every rooftop. Police on patrol, police in golf carts.
And guess what?
Everyone had a great, safe time.
So fuck him. We will not let him damage our town and the people who visit to have good time.
