Indeed it seemed that as with Benghazi, there were stand down orders. The FOX cameras rolled as looters broke in and looted the store that Brown had robbed. A few police or the guard would have stopped that, but they were nowhere to be seen, till this morning. The last time the looting happened, there was later report that it was a mistake for police to "stand down", reports that police were crying…

Forum at East St. Louis' Casino Queen seeks input from the region's casinos, a horse track and East St. Louis officials

A lawmaker is launching the latest quest to broaden gambling in Illinois with a public hearing in southwestern Illinois.

Democratic state Rep. Bob Rita of Blue Island near Chicago says a forum Tuesday night at East St. Louis' Casino Queen seeks input from the region's casinos, a horse track and East St. Louis officials.

Rita says his measure would resemble one that failed in the Illinois General Assembly last year. It called for adding five new Illinois casinos, as well as slot machines at Chicago's two international airports.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn has vetoed two previous gambling bills because he says they didn't include enough ethical protections. Quinn also has said he'll only sign legislation that provides adequate oversight of a Chicago casino and directs new revenues to education.
