MGM Resorts International: Did they put profits ahead of safety?

Image
LAS VEGAS — Current and former employees of MGM Resorts International (MGMRI) who spoke to the Los Angeles Post-Examiner say that MGMRI executives dropped the ball, because they failed to implement any screening and preventive measures that could have possibly stopped Stephen Paddock’s luggage from ever reaching his room and his explosive-laden vehicle from remaining undetected on the property until after the October 1 massacre.Paddock quietly and unimpeded brought 23 firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, loaded magazines and accessories including 50 pounds of explosive materials contained in his vehicle onto the property of the MGMRI owned Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas and then committed the worst mass shooting in modern American history.Remember 58 people were killed and over 400 suffered gunshot wounds at the MGMRI owned Las Vegas Village, the site of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, as Paddock fired down onto the crowd from his 32nd floor suite at the Mandalay Bay Hot…

Staying at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada

Graham Bell checks into the Signature at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada.Check-in experience:Pleasant and helpful. Everything explained clearly by attentive staff. This place is so immense it left us feeling a little shellshocked.The room: 22-615. On the 22nd floor of Tower one. There are three identical towers, each of 38 storeys. A large studio-type room with the bed as central focus. There is a lounge area with couch and armchair as well as a table-cum-desk with two chairs. The bench has a microwave but no cookware, plates, cutlery or anything that might tempt you to prepare food there. There was not even a jug to boil water in. There was a small, rudimentary, coffee maker, which we did not attempt to use. Thankfully there was an efficient fridge. A 40-inch flat-screen TV was easy to use and of good quality. The bathroom was also big with separate bath, shower box, twin basin vanity and a small TV on the bench. The toilet, accessed through the bathroom was also in a small separate roo…
