  1. As long as you run a square house it’s the players’ affair if they choose to wager.

    • I agree, but the concern is over the cognitive ability of seniors. It’s sadly quite easy for people becoming senile to be taken advantage of and I think the city overreacted to that concern.

    • @Mike Smith Tis a legitimate concern but there’s no avoiding the need to go through a formal competency panel if a senior is believed to have lost cognitive function. Normal senior residences aren’t equipped to manage clients in that capacity afaik. There are specialized ones where there wouldn’t be any questions of cash to lose or win.

  2. Must be a slow news day

    They should get paid or a pension RAISE for having been harassed this way ~~~
    They actually raise emotional intelligence bar just for keeping focused and HAPPY while not destroying anything – not much gas used there ~~~ they protect their environment by being contained in specific spaces – less pollution, etc… not causing congestion,,,/// hummm and much, much more ~~~ a stable bunch of mature beings ~~~

  4. WOW what ever you do not look at the bingo game mom say’s she could win $ 5 .

  5. Maybe you cops should be preventing and investigating gang violence instead of hassling seniors.

  6. Glad to see our police protecting the masses from such horrible criminals.Gangs can breath a sigh of relief .
