Lol Lori, he stole the gasoline from me. I filled the gas can and had it tied to the tool box in the bed of the pickup truck. He was seen taking it from the truck on video. They then followed him back into the casino (on video) and to the machine he was playing with his club card. I've a feeling that this is going to be an expensive 5 gallons. $4 per gallon is going to seem like a bargain when it's all done.

Can't say I've ever seen the crime victim in the headlines rather than the criminal! If you're o.k. with it, then so am I, lol!

The way it was explained to me, that's exactly the excuse he gave. I don't get it, and neither do most people. *shrug*

Yes, and Hamlin is a little bit of a ride home without gas. It was a little bit of a ride to
get here, just to donate to Batavia Downs.

How the place operates? It really sucks not to win, but nobody is forced to keep shoving their money into the machine. Gamblers can't blame the casino any more than a criminal can blame the victim.

"Hey, if he didn't have the gasoline unlocked in the back of his truck, I never would've taken it!"

Grow a pair..everything is a choice, so take responsibility for what you do.
