Caution!!! - Petty theft is thriving here!!
""The Bazaar"" restaurant on the first floor of SLS Hotel --
I actually used to enjoy coming here mostly for great food. Until the
night my purse was stolen from my table, by someone who was sitting
next to us with his group of friends. The security camera was right
above us. However, management refused to show me the tape, call the
police asap and try to track this person down via the credit card that
his table paid with. They were uncooperative and plainly uninterested
in resolving this issue and in helping me getting my property back --
my phone with all my contacts, different ID's, some cash and the keys
to my place. you can imagine of time and money I now have to spend to
try and renew all those things, however most of the business contacts
and information are forever lost. In 30-40 minutes after my property
was stolen I was forced to raise my voice several times to try to get
their attention, BEGGING them to call the police so the report can be
made and show me the tape from the camera. Well, guess what? They did
call cops, but on ME!! What????!!! Are you kidding me?! I'm the victim
here, not the criminal!!! In all this time they could have already
gotten this guys info from his or his friends payment info -- it was a
table of 4 or 5 guys not just one guy, call the police, make the
report and maybe help young girl who now has to break her door down or
at least call a locksmith for me, I mean something, right? But, I keep
forgetting that in the REAL world things are not so simple. So at the
end I did get that yellow paper that's called a ""police report"" in
which the following was written -- Suspect has taken the property and
fled into unknown direction... I guess folks, that's all I will ever
hear.. oh and I was told I was not allowed on premises anymore. I was
what?? Outraged?! You damn right I was! Wouldn't you be? and I guess I
should frame this yellow ""glory paper"" so it can remind me of the
""Protect and to serve"" bitter sweet sentence.
Anyway, guys enjoy the food and hold on to your bags and your ""rights""
, but you have to be aware of the fact that the second thing that
you're holding on to so tightly is only an illusion...
