Recent Las Vegas Headlines

3 stories from today's "Las Vegas Review Journal"

1) Negro doctor gets 25 years to life:

Calling him "worse than a street dealer" Judge Jackie Glass sentenced a black doctor by the name of Harriston Bass to 25 years to life in prison for illegally prescribing pain killers to Gina Micali who was 38 years of age when she overdosed. Micali was a former water sports star who turned to pain killers after several injuries. Gina died from an overdose of the drug hydrocodone. Dr. Bass would prescribe these drugs from his PT Rover that was equipped with a mini refrigerator while in business as "Docs 24-7". Doctor Bass provided 24-7 service in southern Nevada for years, but that didn't stop a jury from convicting him of over 50 drug-related charges. I don't know about you, but I would never go to a doctor with the name "Bass". Remember Ernest T. Bass from the "Andy Griffith Show" ? Here is a link to the gruesome details of this crime:

2) Las Vegas Valley no longer No. 1 in auto thefts:

We're number 2 now. Why don't you Hispanic and black criminals work harder. You're year of slacking is over. Hey! You white meth heads need to start working too. The Las Vegas Valley is no longer the car theft capitol of America. We have moved to number 2 behind Modesto, California. Here is a link to the story:

3)Grand jury indicts man on ricin, gun charges

Roger Von Bergendorff is a 57 year-old man that has been charged with possesion of a biological chemical, possesion of unregulated firearms and possesion of firearms not identified with a serial number in a Las Vegas federal court. Sounds like Roger is screwed. He woke up in March, after falling into a coma, to FBI agents. If I woke up to FBI agents I would probably pull the plug on myself. Supposedely, Bergendorff had produced enough ricin to kill 522 people. Kind of a weid number,522, but that is what the feds are saying. Bergendorff fell into a coma on Feb. 14. 2 weeks later motel employees entered his room. They discovered weapons and a vial of ricin. Here is a link to this story:
