That first guy is the picture of someone illegally gambling out the back of a coffee shop. Luckily he employed the textbook “illegal gambling? Ayy uhhh nooo no gambling, I don’t know nothing” defense.

He was in the back of the bar gambling when the bar decides that "anything goes".

u/ONegUniversalDonor Apr 01 '23

You know he is the ring leader of the entire operation. He ran out the front door with all of the other gamblers like he was Keyser Soze. When they interviewed the gamblers, the cops held up a picture of this guy to see if they knew who he was. Each had the same response: "Sure I know him. That is old boy Jimmy. He is the bus boy. He doesn't know anything."

u/YouAboutToLoseYoJob 27d ago

Dude, I got so many stories of shady Vietnamese places in San Jose. Like the Galaxy lounge that was a straight up prostitution den. I went there one night to pick up a friend to take them home and I was just going to come in and get a drink. I want to $300 for me to step in the door.

Also the place where downtown poki is, used to be this weird Vietnamese pool hall where outfront it was nothing but BMWs and Lexus cars but inside seem like the shittiest dingy spot ever. They were only gangster looking guys inside. I went there because when Marvel vs Capcom 2 came out that was the only place you could play for $.25. They had that arcade stand on day one of launch.

u/rSpinxr 19d ago

One thing gangsters and mafiosos can never seem to resist is having a nice ride.

... But Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for $.25?!?!??

Heck yeah, very nice move. 😎

u/rSpinxr 19d ago

Bro fo real - the Chinese Mafia ran a gambling operation for like 10 years out of the back of a Red Lobster in Garland, Texas.

The authorities busted it years ago, I think it's a funeral home now.

Brooooo lmao you’re a clown. They could be Asain but saying “our Asians” like “our people” I refer to “my people” the black community as “my people” and when talking to others have said “our people” Example: “our people have been oppressed for way too long.

and “our” being defined as “belonging to or associated with the speaker and one or more other people previously mentioned or easily identified.”

Asians aren’t just one group of people but many groups derived from many countries and different cultures. This may not be his specific group of Asain people he identifies with but is referring to them like how not all black people are African American. But he’s just saying they are his people because he belongs to them as well and is most likely Asain himself.

Calm down there. You’re making a fool out of yourself

Edit: even if you are trolling you’re not even being funny with it you just sound like a douche. And I have a pretty r/shitposting sense of humor. You’re Just not as funny as you think

So do people just walk up order a donut and an hour or two of illegal prostitution? That's just weird a d I would never have imagined a donut shop as a front for that. I hope the donut shops I go to don't do that. I love their bacon maple bars.

u/warm_kitchenette Apr 01 '23 edited Apr 03 '23

Donuts & Coffee shops do a lot of business in cash. They don't have to charge reasonable prices, so profits on paper can be quite high. They can be open 24/7 without causing comment. Deliveries at any time of the day or night aren't unusual.

They can use it for money laundering or cover for trafficking.

2

u/GetOutOfTheWhey Apr 02 '23

They probably also arrest for gambling but they give them deals to snitch on other stuff.

We walked into some dark “coffee shop” next thing I know a smoking hot Viet girl was on my lap…Coffee cost me $300.. they said I wouldn’t of got that service if I just walked in on my own.

Why is gambling illegal

111

u/cowboychimps Apr 01 '23

Because the government wants their cut too.

9

u/SuperNewk Apr 02 '23

partially, HOWEVER, its quite easy to FIX a game. This actually protects people AKA the fish..... the upper class games you don't need to worry about a hustle as much.

But if you get someone who can deal, real well they can collude and stack the deck very easily depending on the game.

In a casino the odds of a casino colluding or stacking a deck against you is low

39

u/Tleach17 Apr 01 '23

its so the state can both verify the game's odds are what they say they are, and so they can get their piece of the action. State lotteries in the US were a direct result of trying to shut down illegal lotteries.

13

u/FapMeNot_Alt Apr 01 '23

It's complicated. Protestants range in tolerance of gambling, which has a major impact on American law. Gambling also attracts addictive personalities and often leads to criminal or destructive behavior. Then you have the issue with ownership creep, where gambling facilities will continue to expand (because the house always wins) their property holdings and will often drown out competing voices in advertising. I personally oppose legal sports betting exclusively because I have heard and seen Fanduel ads daily for the past few months. One of the few things I would be in favor of banning.

Gambling organizations in generally are just really fucking scummy. They also have a habit of astroturfing areas with "polling" calls feeding narratives supportive of gambling (which they exclusively call 'gaming' to distance themselves from the connotations of their business) while buying politicians to pass pro-gambling laws.

13

u/ChiefShitsInPants Apr 01 '23

I didn’t have an opinion on sports betting or gambling until draft kings started advertising everywhere and now I’m ok with banning it all.

2

u/TheVoid-ItCalls Apr 01 '23

Yup, the rampant sports betting advertising made me despise gambling. Burn it all down.

u/Current-Play-4386 Apr 01 '23

Gambling is legal when the government can collect taxes and only then will they allow a form of gambling to exist. In San Jose they have Bay101 Casino and the Matrix Casino (two giant size casinos in the north part of the city), which openly allows gambling; but they get around it by declaring the types of games being played there are games of skill not game of chance. The state of California makes games of chances illegal; but games of skill like poker and different versions of blackjack can be technically legal. They modify the rules to make it legally defined as a game of skill but honestly it’s gambling pure and simple. Anyways the city of San Jose allows open gambling as long as they collect a percentage of the proceeds. These Vietnamese cafes are being shut down basically cause the city doesn’t get a cut of their action and thus it’s illegal.

1

u/existential_plastic Apr 01 '23

games of skill like poker [...] but honestly it’s gambling pure and simple.

Look, I think I agree with your overall point, but poker doesn't belong in the same list. There are no "professional roulette players". Poker is a game with hidden information and inference, granted, but if you truly consider high-level poker to be gambling per se, I suspect the same arguments can be applied to the investment strategies in most people's 401(k)s.

2

u/Current-Play-4386 Apr 02 '23

I agree but you need to step back and look at the larger point - which is games can be tweaked to change the legal definition of “games of chance” vs “ games of skill” … is Pai Kow Poker a game of chance or game of skill because Pai Kow has the name of Pai Gow Poker ? That’s my point.

1

u/existential_plastic Apr 02 '23

If you're winning money from (or losing money to) the casino, then it's not poker, it's a table game, just one with rules inspired by poker.

In other words, I get your point, but I disagree with lumping in so-called "rated games" with proper poker games. Indeed, Bay 101 used to exclusively host actual poker games, and was (in my opinion) a much better place to play when it did. The recent shift at Bay 101 and M8trix to rated games has left a sour taste in many players' mouths.

5

u/DuckFracker Apr 01 '23 edited Apr 01 '23

Because some people don't understand that you never come out ahead on gambling. A long, long time ago, when laws were made to protect people, gambling was highly regulated or outright illegal. Because uneducated people will literally blow all their money thinking they can hit it big.

Then someone came up with the brilliant idea of "well lets have people gamble but the money all goes to education!" That is literally the only reason why gambling is seen as acceptable in the eyes of policymakers, it funds children's education. In some places the money doesn't even all go to education, or even some of it, yet people think it pays for their schools.

Now you have people spending hundreds a week on scratch tickets with no money for food, because they used up all their Food Stamp/SNAP benefits the day they got it weeks ago.
