In a 2012 study of casino crime by the University of Maryland they found that there is a 10% increase in substance abuse, suicide, violent crime, thief and bankruptcy when a new casino opens in town.
Studies have found 8-9 % of crime increases at a cost near $ 70 per year for every person living nearby a casino. After Atlantic City’s rapid casino growth in the 1980’s crime increased by 100 % in a 30 mile radius surrounding the area.
I also found most of the people for the casino do not live in the area and care nothing about all of this. The people for it, that live in the area know nothing at all about this.
No good can come from a casino being built in Medford Suffolk. The lesson needs to be learned from other failures.
