Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

That is the most epic ToC ever.

My friend at work wanted to bet the under 5 days being caught. I said that the police know who it is, but they might be waiting for more evidence/incriminating statements.

He has to be known by now. Especially with a pseudo-accomplice.

He has to be known by now? They still don't have the guy who robbed the RIO years ago! Without him having to cash in any chips, and with a pretty good disguise I would bet my life savings on him never being caught. You already lost the 5 day bet, so make some money back on a bet with me

How much life savings you got ?

You open to escrowing the stakes, realizing you can never win your side of the wager ?

I assume you are implying that he can never win the bet because if the perpetrator were to not be caught after say 10 years, that is not to say that it is impossible for him to be caught in the future, and therefore the bet would continue and so on and so forth.

If my assumption is correct, then your statement is flawed.

I think that we can all agree that it is reasonable to assume that the perpetrator is a human being. If we used the highest average life expectancy possible (considering we don't know the background of the individual to determine a more accurate life expectancy) and attached say, an extra 75 years onto it (so something like 150+ years,) we could positively assume at that point, that the individual would no longer be living, and thus, it would be impossible to "catch" him.

The crime could theoretically be solved at any point from here to infinity, but from what I read, the bet was more so focused on the perpetrator being caught as opposed to the crime solved.

That said, if you escrow and that amount of time passed without him being caught, I'd say your future generations would be most pleased : )

Also, I am quite bored. That's my excuse for this post : )

You miss an important point: It doesn't matter that the robber will die within the next 150 years if 9hilikeabos dies before him. So what are the odds for 9hilikeabos making it to the year 2167 to potentially win the bet?

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

statute of limitations for the win??? with a little help from my friends at google.

Nev. Rev. Stat. Ann. 171.080 et seq.
No statute of limitations: Murder and terrorism
Theft, robbery, burglary, forgery, arson, sexual assault, securities act violation, business fraud or deceit: 4 years
Any other felony: 3 years
Gross misdemeanor: 2 years
Any other misdemeanor: 1 year

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

If the thief doesn't get caught within 4 years, if he were to admit to the robbery after the statute of limitations they can't do anything about it? I would think the casino could still sue him for the money that he stole.

(FWIW, He did not propose 150 years, he said "never". He did not propose a tontine with the miscreant.)

9hi's life expectancy is just a side issue, however an actuary might discount his chances, in light of the wager. Presumably, without access to his life savings, 9hi's life expectancy will have been lowered from its pre-bet value.

Also, having escrowed his life savings, 9hi has affected the likelihood of losing the bet. If 9hi's life savings are truly significant, the other party to the wager can leverage 20% of the escrow to offer a still significant bounty on the miscreant.

9hi's best outcome would be for the robber to voluntarily surrender, rather than being "caught".... not likely imo.

It would be more likely for the robber to get killed by police or commit suicide in prison before being convicted.

In grading the outcomes, for purposes of the 9hi wager proposal, I'd say getting killed by police = "caught".

If he is incarcerated before conviction, but did not voluntarily surrender = "caught".

If his identity is plastered all over by Metro as "the robbery guy", he is "caught" if he gets arrested thereafter for the robbery

If he walks into Metro before he is publicly identified, then he has surrendered, either 9Hi wins or there is no bet or he is "caught".... depending upon whether he knew Metro had identified him and was looking for him, specifically.

A person would be "caught". But that person isn't "the robber" until a court of law has convicted him of said robbery. Until then, he's only "the alleged robber".

Would be interesting to decide what happens if he would die after a conviction but before an appeal. Aaron Hernandez isn't a convicted murderer anymore because he killed himself before his appeal process was over.

Unless you put a stipulation in the bet that says a conviction isn't needed.

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

He only got 40k right? that won't last him forever. When the money runs out he will need a new plan. What was up with his vehicle? it was clearly on video. Was that actually his car or a stolen vehicle? cause if that was his license plate he will be caught quick lol.

What if that $40k was to pay a bookie back so you didn't catch a beat down or worse? People risk their freedom for a lot less. Lots of donks out there.

seems like the dude calculated the risk and weighed 40k to be greater.
