Chukchansi's Morris Reid Moans About Millions Lost

Picayune Rancheria Chairman Morris Reid whines about the tribe losing millions. What he FAILS to mention is that he's gained THOUSANDS for himself by disenrolling over 500 of his fellow tribal citizens. Is that like killing your parents and then asking for mercy because you are an orphan, Morris, you TWIT?!

California's Indian gaming tribes are entitled to operate 10,549 more slot machines thanks to a federal court order involving the owners of Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino.
Yesterday's court judgment caps a case brought by the Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians in Colusa County against the California Gambling Control Commission. The suit, which the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians joined, alleged the state miscalculated formulas used to allot licenses for gaming devices to tribes.

The decision orders the state to undertake a drawing within 45 days to divvy the new slot machines among California tribes. About 56 tribes currently hold gaming compacts with the state.

In a statement, Morris Reid, tribal chair of the Picayune Rancheria based in Coarsegold, said the state lost upwards of $30 million in potential tax revenue from the slot machines denied to the tribes.

"The state and tribes lost millions of dollars the past decade that they can never get back due to the state's miscalculation of the number of gaming machines available under the compacts, but the federal court's decision wisely corrects this going forward," Reid said. "This is a great win for all of Indian Country." OP: NOT ALL, Morris, you ass. Not for those tribal members YOU and your family tossed to the curb! HOW is this a great win for THEM?

this really doesnt make much sense since Pechanga and other Casinos took out hundreds of slots lately so they wouldnt have to pay tax on why do they need more?..or is it for when they think the economy is better?..

What this story shows is that it is not just Pechanga that is violating the rights of their people and profiting from it.

A lot of other tribes who have large successful casinos are doing the same thing.
