Which restaurants are opening up in Las Vegas this holiday season?
Posted On May 25, 2021
The New York Times has confirmed that many of the country’s largest and best-known chains are expected to open their doors to the public on December 23rd.
The news comes just days after the New York City Police Department released a statement announcing that they will be holding a public holiday “prestige event” on December 16th, and that they would be making an additional 50 arrests on the occasion of the event.
The statement comes as a result of a recent spike in violent incidents in New York, including the brutal killing of a black teenager by a white police officer in the city’s West Village neighborhood.
The police department says that the number of arrests in New Jersey has surpassed those in Chicago, and many of them are related to a series of incidents that began last weekend when police officers were involved in a violent standoff with a group of black teenagers.
In the first of these cases, a police officer shot and killed a teenager on Saturday night, sparking a nationwide outcry.
The following day, another police officer fatally shot a mentally ill man in an apparent retaliation for a white cop who shot and wounded another man in the same incident, resulting in the deaths of both of them.
Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, a man named Dylan Noble, who was unarmed, was fatally shot by a police patrolman during a routine traffic stop in an incident that has been widely seen as an example of white cops targeting black residents in the wake of the fatal police shootings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling in Louisiana.
Authorities in Cleveland, Ohio, have also been making headlines for their ongoing efforts to hold “policing-style events” across the city during the holiday season.
Cleveland police Chief Calvin Williams said last week that he would be ordering officers to enforce a “no-knock” order in response to the heightened tension in the area.
Police officers in New Orleans have been deployed to a number of high-profile locations throughout the city to enforce the citywide curfew and to disperse protests that have sprung up over the deaths in the aftermath of the killings of three black men at a convenience store and two black women in Louisiana last week.
