Incident At The Beau Rivage Casino Proves We Are Quickly Going Downhill As A Country

Posted by | January 26, 2014
.

We were recently informed of an incident that happened at the Beau Rivage Casino in Mississippi which proves that the United States is going downhill whether we like it or not. By that I mean with no questions asked or without any type of investigation you are automatically guilty, handcuffed and jailed. Everything is so politically correct, there is no more “freedom” of speech as you can read in the story below. Shame on the Beau Rivage for letting things like this get out of hand. If their employees would have acted like professionals instead of jumping the gun making ASSumptions, the outcome would have been a lot different. They should have investigated the situation and found out what “really” happened instead of just taking the statement from one person. As you can see from the letter below, this was blown out of proportion as she was not the one being racist at all. All of us conservatives need to get together and put a stop to this crap. FORGET being politically correct, STOP trying to hide your religion when you are in public and STOP worrying that you might offend a liberal for expressing either your religious or moral beliefs. I’m by no means suggesting you should be disrespectful and definitely not racist. What I’m saying is to continue to freely express your beliefs in a moral fashion. Read the story below and make sure you take a look at the pictures of what the handcuffs did to this “INNOCENT” person.

    What, exactly, does this incident have to do with communism? Does the author even understand the meaning of the word?

  2. Bobcat January 27, 2014 10:37 am

    This is absolutely ridiculous and quite frankly very scary. I can see the casino guards doing what they did (even though it was totally wrong), but how can the local police justify what they did. I sure hope you file a lawsuit against everyone involved.

  3. Douglas January 27, 2014 10:57 am

    Too bad a citizen’s arrest can only lawfully be executed for felony crimes, at best they could get her with disorderly conduct. This week get thrown out in court.

  4. stacey carroll January 27, 2014 11:33 am

    that goes on a lot,…time from a stand….

  5. Kittie January 27, 2014 11:39 am

    Um sorry but Nooo! You’re not racist. The first thing you pointed out was that it was a “black” waitress, why not just say waitress. Also that word should never be spoken. You could have just said the “N” if you were telling friends a story. I find it better to never bring it up. Oh btw I’m not liberal by any means and I do not agree with all that happened to you but I am sensitive to how that word affects people.

  6. Emily January 27, 2014 12:21 pm

    This is completely ridiculous! I cant believe this even happened.. This is ridiculous because you know that the waitress probably uses worse words than that, and for her to press charges on you for something that you said is completely wrong. She should be more worried about other things going on than be offended by what someone says. You know just as well as everyone else that she uses that word in different context and I bet she was never arrested for it. I just can’t get over the fact that this really happened. Its our right as a united states citizen that we can in fact say what ever we want. I know that this wouldn’t have happened if you would have been black and the waitress had been white and you called her a “cracker” then nothing would have happened and that words offends me and a lot of other people that I know. She should be fired! and you should be able to press charges on for them walking you through a casino in hand cuffs even though you didn’t commit a crime.

    Bullshit is right! Beau security is not aloud to touch people. This is just some attention seeking bitch who wants money. I don’t believe a word of her story. The least to mention is that the beau is a private property. They walk people out and tell them to leave or get the police to escort them out. I see it all day, usually drunks. Odds are she got drunk and used the word loudly, and thought it was ok cause she was simply telling a story.

  8. Steven January 27, 2014 1:08 pm

    Get a lawyer!

  9. clos January 27, 2014 1:13 pm

    first off look at her wrists? they’re bigger than mine of course the handcuffs left marks 2 casino’s are either corps. or on indian reservations which federal law does not apply either way business owners have the right to deny anyone service 3 unless youre acting in a violent manner beau ravage security wont touch you 4th im still wondering what this has to do with communism, 5 we refer to them as African Americans not blacks, and 6 youre white and there’s African Americans around you should know better than to those words knowing its just gonna lead to more problems. In short this lady is an idiot, this article is baseless and they should fire the editor for all the typos!!! with that being said I Love America!

  10. Rod January 27, 2014 1:41 pm

    I was at the cafe that night. Colleen forgot to mention how intoxicated she was at the time. Sloppy would be a more appropriate description. Or how loudly she was talking. Lots of people heard your “language”, not just the waitress. Security was attempting to get you to go to your room, peacefully. You forcibly refused. They said they’d call Biloxi PD and you still resisted, screaming “what are you going to do to me?” I’d imagine you feel pretty embarrassed about the whole thing and felt the need to embellish the event to make you seem innocent. But those that were there know the truth. And please google the term communism and give yourself a vocabulary lesson.

  11. marcus January 27, 2014 2:04 pm

    its aabuse or be abused in this rude society , she could get one over on you thats all that counts today

  12. jackie January 27, 2014 2:09 pm

    I was there that night. But Miss Colleen forgot to mention how drunk She was. That MULTIPLE people heard her using the word. It was inapropriate! Yes. You have bruises on your wrist becuase your fair skin & over weight! Get a life. Seems very racist to me. Oh & another thing security at the beau rivage ONLY reacts that way when You do not follow direction and are disruptive to other guests. D.s.M should be ashamed for poating this. “Innocent” far from it.

  13. Jody January 27, 2014 2:11 pm

    While I despise the use of that word, I am even more infuriated that the African American people throw it around like an affectionate antidote!! They use it in their songs, their greetings and to talk about other people, but when a white person uses it, it is racists, no matter how they use it!! My parents NEVER allowed that word and I NEVER allowed that word with my children or grandchildren. We (older generation) fought so hard to get rid of the use of it and today it is acceptable among the very same people who wanted it abolished years ago!! It has become a sad time for our country!!

  14. Anne January 27, 2014 2:13 pm

    You clearly had NO INTENTIONS of leaving when you were asked so the security guards had EVERY reason to escort you out. If you had just left when you were asked then the whole thing would have been resolved. The use of the “N-word” is NOT ACCEPTABLE anywhere, no matter what the context is it is used in. I say WAY TO GO BEAU RIVAGE and as far as your “bruises” are concerned, that ONLY HAPPENS IF YOU ARE RESISTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Caroline Holt January 27, 2014 2:43 pm

    Our constitutional rights protect on public AND private property. no if and or buts! Free speech is free speech- no you can’t hollar fire at a theater as to cause panic and possible injury to those trying to flee. You can however use legal terms- however distastful they maybe.
    Yes a business has a right to refuse service and ask someone to leave for no reason.
    BUT- police do not have a right to arrest and detain you for no reason. This person did not brake any law-This shows that we are becoming a police state and a communist state becuase our rights are not upheld. The sheriff of that county should open an investigation into the incident and have charges brought on the officers for not upholding their oath to the Constitution.
    Saying nigger is not unlawful- it is not against the constitution – period- like it or not. We can not continue to get offend by everything- time to grow up people.

  16. SN January 27, 2014 3:05 pm

    I was told the other day that “thug” is the new “N” word and thought to be at least as offensive, if not more so. Is this true?

  17. Ted January 27, 2014 3:17 pm

    BOO HOO. You had exercised on you a citizens arrest for using racist and degrading terminology in public. Wouldn’t you think that’s a conversation best had in the privacy of your own home? What made you think it’s okay to drop the n-bomb in public, no matter the context?! And now you have a couple of minor bruises on your wrists and want to blast it to social media BAWWWWL’ing like you were severely violated. Look up some video’s of police brutality and you’ll 1) see why people are so defensive of this racist behavior and 2) it should set a tone of relativity to your situation.

    1. The casino is a private, commercial property. They can refuse service at their discretion and security guards are charged with keeping order as professionals in their environment because otherwise it would come out of OUR tax dollars if actual police were employed. So I’d rather the Beau fund that. If you were a business owner and a customer was using racial slurs in your business upsetting the staff and customers, I would hope you would have security remove them and elevate it to the police if they refused, as you seemed to.

    2. Regardless of the context, you were using a racial slur in public. It doesn’t matter to whom or what about. “Someone stealing to feed their family is still committing theft.” You may be justifying your using the n-word but that is a localized justification. Have enough common sense to know that someone of a differing ethnicity hearing that word WILL BE OFFENDED. Regardless of YOUR justification, it won’t justify THEIR hearing the word. That is a very egocentric view of the situation on your part. What did you expect? “Oh, you were just talking about someone else while you were using a hurtful, degrading term that is upsetting to everyone around you? Oh, okay. That’s okay then. Go on saying the n-word all you like in that case.” No. That’s not how people work, Ms. Loria.

    3. Citizen’s arrests are here to protect you as well. Sure, someone’s opinion or judgment is subjective- even a police officer or hired security. You were perceived as acting in ways characteristic of a racist/bigot. Perception is reality. I bet that’s a painful reality for you as you perceive this situation, huh? What if you really were a racist. What if you were dropping the n-bomb in public and later that night ended up killing an someone in the Beau parking garage because of their ethnicity? These guards acted completely in line with the obligations and duties they were charged to uphold, as did the Biloxi Police department.

    Don’t go dropping racial slurs in public next time and maybe you won’t be arrested, Colleen. Also, I see you’re from New Orleans. Had this situation happened around the French Quarter I’d guess a lot worse may have happened to you. Not at the hand of the NOLA police, but likely your fellow citizen. You think someone not bound by law enforcement code would hold back if they heard you being racist? You should know better! At least you’re not in a morgue or hospital right now from stab wounds because someone heard you freely dropping racist words in public.

  18. Linda January 27, 2014 3:56 pm

    You can not give ‘small minded people’ authority….this was taught to me by my black supervisor in a casino where I worked as a cage cashier..I’ve seen this over and over and it’s especially predominant in casinos..local idiots with a little power are very dangerous..I am 67 yrs old and have seen this a lot through my lifetime..I hate casinos and the authority figures that they allow to run rampant in them..my advice is to steer clear of them. Regardless what they try to teach you..cops are NOT your friends.

  19. wmp January 27, 2014 4:01 pm

    N****rs call each other n***as. What’s the big deal? I would love to be the attorney representing this woman in her civil rights case. PAY.DAY. The second they had her arrested she had a record of the employment of the CASINO violating her rights based upon “offensive” speech? Want to hear something offensive? Turn your radio to a rap station, you’ll hear nothing but “*blankity*blank*blank* that ni***a and his b***h”. I’m going to try this at the Beau next week to see if I can’t get in on some of the action, who said you gotta play games to get lucky? This woman sure didn’t and I’d be speaking with an attorney today.

    For all you well educated people out there saying that she was drunk, why was she not processed for public intoxication? That would be an appropriate charge for someone that is drunk and yelling obscenities on top of the disorderly conduct. She will have her day in court and have the opportunity to face her accusers, who likely will not show up. She’ll have her other day in court with the upper mgmt of the Beau and they’ll have to answer or settle. I’m going with the latter.

  20. Seth January 27, 2014 4:30 pm

    That sounds like a lawsuit to me. I would sue the pants off of them. Yeah, this society has gotten really bad. The anointed race has learned that all they have to do to get out of trouble, or get their way is to scream racism.

  21. D Heidelberg January 27, 2014 5:37 pm

    Mrs. Loria, while I do disagree with what happened to you as far as the arrest is concerned it seems to me that before you look to continue with the argument that using the n-word was appropriate in that type of setting it might be advantageous to remind you of the environment you were in.
    See I am from that area and was stationed in New Orleans, so I know the culture very well. It strikes me that you are educated and know the culture as well. You had an African American waitress who would prefer her own people not use the n-word much less another ethnicity using it. I would not call a Caucasian a red neck hillbilly and especially would not do it in public. Why? I am aware of my surroundings and the people that can or will be offended.
    The Beau based on your account of the situation did what was right by asking you to leave. You could have asked for your change to be sent to your room or credited to an account for you. That moment was not the time to argue, but follow directions and move out. It could have been better resolved outside of the restaurant.
    I challenge you to look at this situation in another way, what-if this was a black man using derogatory language and it was offensive to you. Would you have let the conversation continue or would you have demanded that he be removed? I venture to guess based on your post and the Facebook listings that you have and that being a successful relator in the New Orleans area you would not tolerate that type of behavior. Now did you need to go to jail, “NO” I do not agree with that, however removing you from the area to protect you from a retaliation from the waitress or other patrons was a classy move on behalf of the Casino. In retrospect they tried to do you a favor in keeping you in the Casino. This was a lesson in sensitivity and respect for the individual even though it was a hard lesson. It’s something that now you can put in your tool bag. Just know that there are many African Americans who regardless of the race feel that using the N-word is not acceptable.
    It would be very classy to send this waitress an apology letter not only for her, but also to show that you have sensitivity to the issue. Also, this article is circulating in many circles on Facebook. All ethnicities are looking at this and I am sure that in your business you do not want to be perceived as an insensitive woman. The relator market is predicated on perception. Who do I feel comfortable with my money?

    This post has nothing to do with rights…
    As a Casino employee that has worked on the “other” side of the camera, I have to say this post is an embellishment of what most likely occurred. I know most of those Security Officers and Supervisors. They are good employees and people. I worked at the Beau for 4 years. I’ve seen this same scenario play out, and have had to write the report on it dozens of times. This person who claims to have been wronged with pictures of injuries was probably combative, disorderly….intoxicated, and the BPD would not have placed her under arrest if they did not see that behavior displayed by her for themselves. If you act like a ass in a public place then you will be treated like one. I am sure those injuries are a result of her acting like a drunken jerk, in which she caused herself by being out of control. That may sound harsh but, like I said I know those employees, and I know the typical behavior that does and does not land a person in hand cuffs. This person was clearly acting a fool, and the only injury she really had was to her pride later on when she realized how foolish she was. However instead if owning up to it she decides to bash the Beau with “her” version. We all know there are two sides to a story.

    damn… you must have pissed that nigger off..

  24. This is awesome January 27, 2014 8:25 pm

    This is awesome . I personally know the beau security . There head of security is a very big black guy who is the nicest person in the world if ya got taken out of there in hand cuffs he must of had a reason . People we all need to pull together all this fighting and racism among our selves is going to be our down fall if we all just stood up to get her as a country black ,white , Asian straight gay or what ever en joy what little time we have on this planet together happy helping one another . So gripping and making life harder and everyone sit back and enjoy the ride

  25. Danelle January 27, 2014 8:25 pm

    First off people grow up!!!!! I hate the word an refuse to let my children say it, due to I have a African Americans in my family.

    The word has 2 meanings…..

    1. A noun:: the slang word for African Americans

    2. A noun:: Used as a disparaging term for a member of any socially, economically, or politically deprived group of people.

    Secondly if you have a problem with a casino/business take it up with them and ask for an investigation I’m sure they can go back and look at the cameras!!!!

  26. Cheetum January 27, 2014 9:02 pm

    They are not African Americans unless they were born in Africa and are now Amerixans. Your either an American or your African, same with Mexican Americans. Your either a Mexican , or your an American .

  27. Frank January 27, 2014 9:08 pm

    Colleen, you used offensive language on private property and they asked you to leave which they have every right to do. You knew better than to say the “N word” because you had scolded someone else for using it. Even in your Facebook post you just had to spell it out so you can use it one more time. Show some class! Do you allow people to come to the New Orleans Property Shoppe and use offensive language?

  28. Tim January 27, 2014 9:26 pm

    One more example of our 1st amendment rights being taken away.

  29. Joe January 27, 2014 9:52 pm

    While I do understand your frustration I am very sorry to hear of the ordeal turning out the way it did. I would say that it is always wise to be extremely cautious when using potential hurtful or offensive words. I myself look always to be gracious and polite in all my behavior regardless who is around. I would never use words of that nature in public. I am a Christian and not allowing any liberty of mine to offend or stumble anyone is very important to me. I have friends and family in the faith of all nationalities that I love and respect. The comment “FORGET being politically correct” works both ways, if want respect you must be prepared to give it?? And the comment “ STOP trying to hide your religion when you are in public and STOP worrying that you might offend a liberal for expressing either your religious or moral beliefs.”…Is of a total different matter. Sharing and standing up in public for one’s faith has absolutely nothing with repeating possible offensive words?? What did this matter have to do with the Gospel? Christ offended many people but He did it by addressing sin, but not using offensive language. I do agree with calling sin what it is and if that offends someone well,,, its supposed to!! Love, grace and mercy is what Christians should be about and you’re going to feel real silly when someone shows up at your church to visit and your reminded how you behaved in un unchristian manner by repeating stories or jokes that may have offend them…
    Mark 12:30-31
    “…And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”

    Something similar happened to me there. I was accused of lifting a shot girl’s dress when that did not happen. The same jack-booted thugs came and put me in a choke hold and dragged me to the holding cell in the back under “citizen’s arrest” until BPD came and took me to the jail for processing. After several thousand dollars in legal fees, we went to court and the judge dismissed the charges and chastised the plaintiff. We subpoena’d the video from that night but of course they omitted the video that would have exonerated me, but they do show the thug security guards dragging me away.
    I could have lost my license to practice medicine over this BS. I will never give that gestapo casino another dime of my money.

  31. david January 27, 2014 10:13 pm

    I agree with the comment above that the head of security is reasonable man. But he did not witness anything that happened in my case.
    Having patrons arrested for BS complaints is ridiculous. In my case, all they would have had to do was view the video feed…or just ask me to leave (go back to my room). Instead, they decided I was guilty and man-handled me like I had just robbed the place…and not a BS misdemeanor “citizen’s arrest.”

    As far as the lady’s complaint above, if she was intoxicated and boisterous and using this language where others could hear, then she deserved to be asked to leave and if she was combative/indignant, forcibly removed…but by local police, and not the JBT rent-a-cops at the casino.

  32. Teresa Creel January 27, 2014 10:43 pm

    Well I believe you and I would get a lawyer and see what can be done about this! You did nothing wrong and the Bitch that kept your change sign charges on her for Theft. And file Raciest charges On the Beau..Yes I said it! Raciest against whites..Blacks do it Everyday…White people don’t have a chance until we stand up for ourselves

  33. noneya January 27, 2014 11:06 pm

    I think you should go back in there and get your change from that black bitch that kept it. Either that or hang out outside until she comes out to get in her car to go home and whip her ass. She probably was doing that damn nigger laugh as they were dragging you out…..

  34. Celee January 28, 2014 1:12 am

    Saying the N word is not against the law. Having conversations with others is not against the law. Colleen was not calling anyone in the place a name, she was relaying a story in a PRIVATE CONVERSATION. Which is not against the law.

    I have no doubt the “I was there” people on this thread are lying. Or else let them prove they were there.

    If you are ok with private conversations being treated criminally like this today, tomorrow it will be you. And you’ll wish you had said something.

  35. RussianMafia January 28, 2014 2:23 am

    In Mother Russia we call them Neger every day and no one thinks anything about it. Tell the neger to come and serve me.

  36. Meghan January 28, 2014 3:05 am

    The bruises look consistent with resisting, and that’s not a plus on your side. If you didn’t leave when asked, then that’s not a plus on your side, either. A private business can ask you to leave if they felt you were causing a disturbance. The Beau will still have the security footage. That can reveal what really happened. When alcohol is involved, people tend to not have the greatest memory about actual events that occurred. In any event, lesson to be learned is be respectful in a private business.

  37. John January 28, 2014 4:33 am

    Lol whoever wrote this is an idiot. A casino can kick you out for any reason, it’s private property and you DO NOT have a right to be there. Your ideals on communism are backwards here and in no way reflects this incident.

    “Proves the United States is going downhill” Haha, now the U.S. going downhill is another topic for another day but how does this incident prove it’s going downhill? Racism is nothing new and black people getting offended by the “N” word in ANY context is nothing new. Same old s***, different day.

  38. David January 28, 2014 6:37 am

    Three words for Colleen.
    Can’t.
    Fix.
    Stupid.
    That’s all! Be blessed.

  39. Olivia January 28, 2014 7:19 am

    The funny thing about casinos is that they have surveillance cameras everywhere. Colleen can try and paint whatever picture she’d like of the incident, but she can’t deny the footage of a drunken, disorderly woman spewing racial slurs and acting a damn fool as MANY people witnessed. Grow up and take responsibility for your behavior and the consequences of your actions.

  40. DIrk Diggler January 28, 2014 7:32 am

    You should be able to offend people with words and that should never be a punishable offense. …whether it be by accident, purpose, saying the word nigger or whatnot. It only makes the user look bad in certain context.

    Furthermore, when you are granted permission to pay your bill, waiting for your change is part of that process. It’s obvious that the waitress of the table wanted to keep the seven bucks in change, and as a result, didn’t return the change in a reasonable amount of time. Regardless, the rent-a-cops are wrong to tell her that she could pay her bill and then turn around and arrest her.

    Now… Nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger. Get over it. It’s freedom of speech and you don’t have a right to have your emotions protected.

  41. kevin meyers January 28, 2014 8:07 am

    There goes the freedom of speech. What a joke….

  42. Robin Johnson January 28, 2014 8:17 am

    I have known Colleen for several years. She is a wonderful mother, wife and a successful business owner. There is no doubt that things happened just as she has stated. Why would she have any reason to lie about it? Seriously, put yourself in her shoes and think about how you would feel. Shame on the Beau Rivage, the waitress and the security guards. The handling of this situation was just awful!

  43. Jake January 28, 2014 9:07 am

    WHAT HAPPEN !
    Freedom of SPEECH !

  44. Kenneth January 28, 2014 11:34 am

    It sounds like she is using the word “common criminal” as a placeholder for that N-word she enjoys saying so very much. This woman sounds racist as hell.

  45. Jessica kiefer January 28, 2014 11:34 am

    I have worked at the Beau and have been in the industry for 20 years…..First, there were probably ten surveillance cameras turned toward her the moment the waitress heard her speak such a word…That is the procedure so, they will have it on tape if you act up….Every last move the Beau and this woman made is on camera and voice record….The only way a security guard can arrest her is if the casino manager approves it. She had to have been unruly and rude or drunk to get arrested in a casino….We just kick people out…ask them to leave….They did and she failed to do so…..They had every right to arrest her for her actions. It’s a three point procedure- make person aware of offense, ask to leave- arrest suspect….They did all three! AND for a person to have these type of bruises on her wrists she had to have fought, or resisted arrest guys….Look how loose the cuffs had to be to push that far up her arm in order to bruise -to near mid arm….Come on, lady! Then, you can see where she tried to slip the loose cuffs over her wrist bone(all together- close to 24 in. slide space)….Seriously??? The casino is BIG BROTHER in the first degree sweetheart….You can’t lie with several angles of your behavior on tape and your filthy voice to go with it….You are busted lady……Give up the soapbox and try to get sympathy and money from somewhere besides a casino…..Take it from someone who knows how a casino works….You “Ain’t gettin nothin ,honey”LOL

  46. Michael Griffin January 28, 2014 11:45 am

    Although I have never had the pleasure to meet Colleen in person, her reputation is one of a respected professional in our area and I have never heard or seen anything to inidcate otherwise. I have corressponded with her for long enough to know she did not deserve this type of treatment from a bunch of thug employees and cops.

    The actions of the waitress, security guards and police were horrific and I think disciplinary action is called for against the perps. This was a racist action by the waitress and because Colleen is white, it is my belief her civil rights were violated.

    Sincerely

    I will never go to your casino! EVER!

    I know Colleen, she is a stand up person, a very intelligent, RESPECTFUL and fair woman. This is ridiculous what happened to her and that casino and that waitress need to be sued and punished…..PERIOD

  49. Brooke January 28, 2014 1:52 pm

    It’s called the first amendment. You are allowed by the freedoms the constitution provides you to say anything without punishment. When you are punished for what you have to say then the strong parallel to communism can certainly be made. I am deliberately making this as simple to understand as possible. Colleen is a successful business owner ,wife, and mother not the bigot you are making her out to be. I really don’t believe she would have excelled at any of those ventures by being a hateful racist. The truth is racism will never die in this country until everyone admits it works BOTH ways. If she made a mistake in any way it was not being aware that someone in her immediate vicinity had an axe to grind. It is not acceptable for rent a cops or law enforcement to physically harm them in this manner unless they
    themselves or an innocent person was being physically harmed. This is not a martial law situation . If I called the cops every time I was called a cracker or honky lets just say they’d be tired of it. I do what most intelligent people do, shake my head and move on with my life. A good rule of thumb is unless someone is paying your bills then why do you give a damn what they think.

  50. Brett January 28, 2014 2:57 pm

    To any of the people who were there and claim that Coleen was drunk and belligerent, I’m sure you shot some video with your phones, right? Oh, you don’t have any proof? Then you can shut the hell up.

  51. Concerned January 28, 2014 3:34 pm

    Colleen, I just wish you would have learned from the CE speaker who lectured you about posting too many political comments on Facebook.

  52. Shamika Jones January 28, 2014 4:12 pm

    FYI, I will not go to this casino if this is how they are treating their good patrons.

  53. Sam January 28, 2014 4:24 pm

    People are way to sensitive! She in no way was intending to hurt anyone and that is obvious. People are so quick to accuse someone of being racist. Just because a white women is telling a story and quotes someone else using a racial slur, you immediately call her racist. Seams pretty racist of y’all to just assume that she dosnt like black people just because she’s white an quotes someone else. People over reacting like this is the reason why people get so fed up with politics.

  54. Aer January 28, 2014 4:39 pm

    This is absolutely absurd. Mrs. Loria in no way, shape, or form broke the law. If I’m not mistaken, isn’t the N word used commonly today BY African Americans referring to one another…..? She wasn’t even referring to anyone by using that word anyway, she was actually scolding someone for using it. People are so quick to play the racist card these days.

  55. Michelle January 28, 2014 7:46 pm

    Well, I will just go ahead and say it because some folks just don’t get it. Let me preface this by saying that I have been a cop for 18 years, in a college town, with a TON of drunks, 110,000 on any given home game. What happened to Colleen was UNCALLED FOR. Just because someone is drunk, belligerent and or resisting, that does not mean that you inflict pain to the point of causing bruises. There are ways to motivate a person to do what you want them to do while inflicting pain and not leaving bruises like they did. I am not saying that she was drunk, belligerent or resisting. I am saying that it is irrelevant. Most security guards are retired cops who know better or folks that want to be cops who don’t have the proper training and go overboard. Size, age, and skin color don’t matter. You treat people the same regardless. I am not going to get into the whole racial thing, but I will say this. What is common place among one group of people does not become morbidly offensive when used by another group, especially in the context it was used.

  56. Witness January 28, 2014 9:14 pm

    I was with Colleen during the time of the incident, and I can assure you that she had no malice or racist intent when telling her story at the table. It is truly unfortunate that the two parties were not able to communicate better to come to an understanding, and that the situation escalated to the point in which it did.

  57. david January 29, 2014 12:33 am

    Jessica Kiefer, pull up my incident report and watch the video…if you have access…you will see that your statements are false. I was not asked to leave. A girl made an allegation and the JBTs put me in a choke hold and drug me to the back. No chance they had a chance to look at video of the incident as if they did, they would have seen that they allegations were false and embellished. The head of security did not get involved in my incident until I bonded out and came back to the casino (I was staying there) when he was a part of the process of trespassing me. Reasonable guy…if he would have gotten involved early on I doubt I would have been arrested…or manhandled the way I was.
    Anyway, I have no idea about this lady’s complaint…I was merely giving my experience with this casino and its gestapo tactics when it comes to employees making allegations and their quick to go “hands on” with patrons.

  58. Jim Poncet January 29, 2014 7:50 am

    Typical harrasment from rookies with a badge. You need to sue them

  59. Denise Newman January 29, 2014 7:56 am

    Colleen, I apologize for the ignorance of the Beau Rivage. We all don’t act like that in Mississippi. I hope that you sue them for arresting you and FILE CHARGES AGAINST THE WAITRESS WHO STOLE YOUR CHANGE, THAT IS WHAT IS WAS, THEFT! The Casino should be liable for that too! There are many words in the English Language that are offensive to many people but we don’t arrest everyone because someone is offended! Shame on the Beau Rivage for allowing this situation to escalate to this level only on the word of this waitress. Asking you to leave was one thing but arresting you went over the line and then STEALING YOUR MONEY!

  60. BC January 29, 2014 8:48 am

    If you’d notice even her own witness didn’t come out and say she wasn’t belligerent or intoxicated, only that she wasn’t being racist when using the term or during conversation and that it’s sad the parties involved couldn’t agree and things escalated……that should tell you something. Nobody is saying she isn’t a ” model” citizen, but when intoxicated people are totally different. I would hope that all truths will be revealed as this was only one person’s side of the story.

  61. Paul January 29, 2014 9:20 am

    From someone who has known Colleen for over 23 years, let me tell all of you about Colleen. Colleen is one of the most caring people I know. She is a great mom, wife and business person. To those of you commenting who do not know Colleen, she is by no means a idiot, a bitch, a racist or a drunk. For those of you who post your hate filled opinions and lies…all I can do is feel sorry for you.

    For the incident at the Beau Rivage, I think it is 100% the TRUTH.

    To give full disclosure…I’m Colleen’s husband and I’m proud to call her my wife.

  62. Stacy January 29, 2014 11:06 am

    I call bull crap. Who gets arrested for saying a word!

  63. Clint Wanker January 30, 2014 8:45 am

    This is unreal. I use to work for the Beau Rivage as a security officer and the only time
    we ever broke out our handcuffs is when the person tried to fight with us. The security
    team there knows how to handle folks and there is always two or more officers at the
    place where a problem might be. If the young lady and her party where waiting for
    her change they would have waited for the table waiter to bring her money back to her then
    would have walked her and her friends out of the building.

  64. Baque January 30, 2014 10:18 am

    “Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story”. This is the motto this woman lives by. She is an infamous fabricator. How come she is not fighting her story? How come others are posting her story on her behalf? Typical lazy reporting by a non credible site. Do your research, investigate this false incident before writing a story. Let’s remember this is the same lady that claims to have witnessed the woman and her child being shot in the streets. But “could not stop or report it because her son was late for allstar practice” haha. But this post was deleted on her Facebook account. I mean let’s be honest. If her “friends” had not have posted and made this incident a big deal, a wildly accurate assumption would conclude that this post too would be deleted because of the attention driven fabrication of the story. Speaking of “friends” and her subordinates that were with her during the incident, how come the are not rushing to her defense? The overwhelming witnissing accounts paint a drunk woman seeking attention by making a scene and believing she is too good to be escorted off. How dare they ask such a self proclaimed educated women to leave their business. Also, bruises on the wrist are key clues to a resistance.
    Just to add. Just because you say you are not a racist doesn’t mean you’re not a racist.

  65. Emile January 30, 2014 10:53 am

    I hope you people realize this is ALL about money. If you check her Facebook page, all her friends are recommending that she SUE, SUE, SUE. Everybody’s got an attorney for her to use. It’s even suggested that her father was a attorney with big connections. Great, so she sues for being a loud drunken slob who is saying the “n” word loudly for attention (but she was only telling a story, so relax yourselves). She upsets a waitress and other patrons, is asked 3 times to go to her room quietly, challenges security (the beau better call Rod to get the full story) and then will benefit from a lawsuit or a settlement!? This kind of thing affects all of us. Next time I want to go to the Beau Rivage, I’m paying more for everything. The cost is passed on to me….just as bad as when somebody fakes a fall and sues! Who pays for that? We do! And sue-happy attorneys get rich.
    Colleen, do us all a favor, if you’re serious about your complaint against the Beau, pay your attorney out of your own pocket. Ask for damages in the amount of $1. People will take you and your story a whole lot more seriously then.

  66. Emile January 30, 2014 11:30 am

    This incident happened at the BR Prime (not the buffet). This is a very upscale restaurant with fine dining where poor behavior would be much less tolerated. Last time I was there, there wasn’t anything on the menu that could have been $13! That place is pricey.
    Except maybe two drinks.

    And Dr David who’s accused of lifting a girl’s skirt, I have a difficult time believing you were totally innocent as well.

  67. david January 30, 2014 7:19 pm

    Emile, totally innocent? Yep. 100% did not happen.

  68. ABCMUSTABEENTHE K January 31, 2014 12:58 pm

    OMG —- Colleen, I’m am sure you were very FULL…..and yes sloppy. You are not at OZ and Noel is dead he cannot save you from this one. Grow up. You are brused because you put up a fight. I feel sorry for your children ….. Mom using the “N” word in public. What are you teaching your innocent children?
    You should not drink AT ALL you have always been messy in the past. SLOPPY SLOPPY SLOPPY!!!!!!

  69. COlleen Loria February 2, 2014 1:00 am

    To the many of you who have reached out to express your concerns over what happened to me, thank you!!! So many people from New Orleans, Mississippi, the Real Estate community and around the country who have expressed outrage that someone QUOTING ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL in a private conversation could be falsely accused of using “offensive language”, arrested and injured by Private Security and/or local law enforcement have contacted me.
    I am so grateful for the support of my family, friends and colleagues who know me, know what is in my heart, and know the kind of person I am.
    To those of you who don’t know me and think this is no big deal, I would remind you that the most basic of rights in this country is our right to “free speech”. I would ask you to imagine what it would be like if every time someone overheard you say something they didn’t like, the police and/or private security company could arrest and detain you. Furthermore, imagine how many times you or your family members might have been subjected to the same treatment I endured.
    This incident is receiving a lot of attention because many people believe that this type of violation of civil rights and loss of liberty is happening more and more in America.
    I care a great deal about our rights as American Citizens, which anyone can plainly see if they view my personal Facebook page. This is partly why I shared my story.

    My account of what happened is 100% accurate!!! There are several people who have corroborated it.
    The negative remarks regarding many aspects of the event are factually incorrect and/or flat out lies. Those comments have come from people who clearly have a bias towards the Beau Rivage, the Biloxi Police, the waitress, and/or the Security Guards. Many have readily admitted their personal and/or professional connections to one or more of them in their comments.

    I welcome the opportunity to challenge anyone who claims that my account is false and challenge him or her to use his or her full names on this page, as I have throughout this ordeal.

    The other ridiculous individuals who seek only to discredit and disparage me for their own personal and political agendas are cowards. They too, hide behind a computer screen and alias with no accountability for the Vitriol they spew. I challenge them as well to come out from the shadows and share their full names. If they are unwilling to do that, they should keep their comments to themselves, for they have no credibility.
    As a “NOT SO” wise man once said, “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide”. I have nothing to hide and will not allow the vicious attacks of a few BULLIES to keep me from standing up for what is right.
    I plan to vigorously defend my reputation, my constitutional rights and myself and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure that the truth about what happened is brought to light.
    Thanks again to all of you who care about the First Amendment, the Constitution, Liberty and Justice!
    There are still people who are willing to fight for it!
    Colleen Loria

  70. Alex Upton February 2, 2014 5:30 pm

    My name is Alex and I work in an administration position that directly handles the cash at a casino in Reno. Here is my take on the case that seems to be going viral concerning Ms. Loria’s incident at the Beau Rivage Casino in Mississippi.

    I would first like to say that, as a casino employee, my intent is not to defend Beau Rivage nor their parent company MGM Resorts International, nor am I an employee nor contracted by either.

    Casinos have more cash openly flowing than most banks have in their vaults. It is an environment with great potential for dangerous crimes. Casino security are not your typical mall cop. They undergo much heavier training and psychological testing and extensive training on how to deal with the public, especially problematic people. I highly doubt that Beau Rivage’s parent company, MGM Resorts International, hires just anybody. You could say they have a bit of experience in this. Their security teams have two missions: 1) Asset protection, and 2) most importantly, the safety of their customers and employees. Casinos are not places for antics, and that includes any part of the casino property, including the restaurants. They are heavily regulated by state commissions and insurance companies for how to safely run their business. There are thousands (5,000 on average) of hi-definition cameras in casinos that are also mic’d, that canvass everywhere from the gaming floor to the parking garages to, yes, the restaurants. The mics can hear a pin drop and the cameras can easily read the numbers on a credit card placed on a table. Nothing gets by either visually or audio. If you have created a disturbance, you are using up security resources. And they don’t use these resources for just any minor reason. Please be respectful if asked to quiet down or not use racist or vulgar language, and do as asked. This is not your house. This is not a public stage. It’s a private business, so the First Amendment has no play here And Communism is a form of government, not local law enforcement and the rights of business owners. Distraction crimes are one of the most common crimes casinos have to deal with. How could security have been certain at the time that Ms. Loria was being uncooperative, that it wasn’t in coordination with another team looking to commit a crime while security is distracted. Her story fully supports the casinos case. She admits to using offensive language loud enough for others outside her party to hear. She admits to being asked to quiet down and to watch her language. She admits to confronting the waitress. (Doesn’t matter why. It can easily be considered intimidation.) Camera room supervisors felt they had the evidence necessary to act and request guards to ask her to leave. She openly admitted that she refused. (Whatever excuse, including waiting for change, is insignificant. “In a minute, I’m waiting for my change,” is not leaving. That’s refusing to leave. She certainly would have received her change to her room anyway.) After refusing, the guards had no other choice but to engage in physical action to restrain her. All people who are forcibly removed from a casino are walked through the casino floor. This is not to humiliate the suspect, but to provide a show of authority to customers that they are in a safe place and any disturbances are quickly handled. Any incidences that take place in a casino are always handed over to the local police that occur at high-end targets for criminal activity. It’s like that in Vegas. It’s like that in Atlantic City. It’s like that on Indian Reservations, and it’s like that on the Mississippi coast. They need to hold her long enough to ensure no other crimes took place during the incident. It’s just procedure and for the safety of customers and asset protection. Once they are certain to a degree it was an isolated incident, she is released after processing. Believe me, as many layers of security I go through before dealing with massive amounts of money, there’s always a level of nervousness on my part. Please don’t add to that. Anything that happens anywhere on the grounds makes us very nervous. Casino employees have been murdered in the past during the act of a crime that often involves distractionary devices such as fake fights.

    As far as the bruises in the photos posted online of Ms. Loria’s arms indicate how considerate security and/or police were in lightly placing the cuffs on her. The guards are careful to not exercise excessive force in such situations. Cuffs place overly tightly do not cause bruising up and down the forearm. It can cause broken blood vessels at the site they are placed and resultant nerve damage can also occur, either temporary or permanent. But the bruises negate the possibility of that. Arm bruises over a wide area of the forearm are indicative of loosely-placed cuffs that caused minor bruising from excessive fighting or fidgeting. NO bruises would have appear if the arms stayed in a rested position.

    Additionally, for the security and police’s case, in the absence of before and after pictures, the bruises are irrelevant as they could have been there before the incident, or happened after leaving police custody. The only way this would be admissible as evidence is if these bruises were immediately evaluated by a doctor as the the cause and time frame of when they happened. In the absence of that, this is useless evidence.

    It is sadly apparent that Ms. Loria is either acting without counsel, or is being given poor advice by incriminating herself in public forums. It would be best at this point to hire an attorney. Or better yet, as it’s highly unlikely any money will be seen from this incident, would be to send a written apology to the waitress, (whether or not you feel she was wrong,) take responsibility for your actions, and move on from here. The evidence provided bears little hope that you’ll see any monetary gain from this, and you stand only to prolong the embarrassment and, if it’s true from what I’ve read that you are a business owner, do the right thing for the health of your business and your employees who stand to lose from this, and put this behind you and move on. It may not be the easiest thing to do, but trust me, once you do it, you’ll feel a million times better and you’ll gain the respect of more people for taking the high road rather than continue to be aggressively, (and unjustly) attacked by internet trolls. You deserve better than to continue dragging yourself through this debacle, along with your family, friends, and coworkers.

    And if you ever find yourself up my way, or any casino for that matter, please try to be more considerate and respectful of casino staff, whether it be a pit boss, or a bus boy. We work in a place that many people would be willing to do anything to snatch the millions that float around all day. Be respectful of that fact, and you’ll always be welcomed here.

  71. David Weick February 2, 2014 9:53 pm

    Dear Mr. Upton,

    You are a well spoken person. I hope Colleen pays attention to what you wrote. I agree with you 100%.

  72. vivien howe February 14, 2014 9:05 pm

    I am appalled at the people who posted a negative comment…what is wrong is that they accuse you of being insensitive, but they fail to sympathize with you. That makes them equally insensitive (typical hypocritical behavior). Apparently they did not read your entire narrative and just jumped to conclusions as did the people in your account… IMHO the people are unloved, unhappy and unfulfilled…they love to see others be intimidated, thus putting them in a position of power, which maybe they have not at home. They see themselves as victims and any type of control, even just a little makes them feel supreme…and I saw a comment about what does this have to do with communism…apparently we need to send that guy to Cuba, so he may experience communism… I am glad you spoke out and there will always be the ones who close their eyes to Truth and Fact… ( look who is in office).

  73. David Weick February 20, 2014 1:58 am

    b;ah blah Blah Blah….GUILTY !

  74. Christopher February 20, 2014 12:26 pm

    What’s appalling is this nut job went into a PRIVATE establishment intoxicated and proceeded to spew racial slurs, (It doesn’t matter what the context was!) and then becomes outraged when she is politely asked to leave. If you read the comments there were several eye witnesses that say she was “sloppy drunk”, loud and uncooperative. They say her account is absolutely false.
    Now this person is a business owner, if someone came into her business and proceeded to cause a disturbance, and then refused to leave when asked nicely to do so, she would be on the phone to the police so fast it would make your head spin. What’s so absurd is that she throws around the right wing crazy person buzzword “communism”. This just means she didn’t get her way and was not allowed to infringe on the rights of others to conduct their business in a way that they see fit. The casino simply would not allow a drunk to offend the rest of their guests. Yes guest, which is what she was at the time, a GUEST of the casino, on PRIVATE PROPERTY! There are rules in any PRIVATE establishment one has to follow! Could you imagine not being able to run your own business in a way you see fit? What if you were not free to ask someone who is a public nuisance to leave your establishment, this person would be screaming bloody murder!

  75. Big Bib March 3, 2014 9:24 am

    I understand from comments (others who were there in the restaurant) that this person was drunk and loud. If you are going to “just report the news” please try to do it properly.

  76. The Godfather March 3, 2014 9:40 am

    Hey Lil Bib, how do you know the people that claim they were there are telling the truth. Enough of the assumptions and opinions, wait until the court gives the official verdict then make comments.
