I've always said "aggressive" busking was going to come around and bite us in the butt!

Sounds like a code of conduct is being introduced. Which is not altogether a bad thing. It is with out doubt that their are some really bad arse, nasty so called street performers on Fremont street that could do with a few lessons in good manners as well as performing.

On the other hand a code of conduct may be very dificuilt to enforce, if its any thing like the UK its not Law but a guide line.

Fremont Street was pretty nasty before street performers were introduced ... I doubt this will be a bad thing for the true performers there.

Signs will let visitors know that tipping street performers is not a requirement, and they should keep their distance.

"A 'no touch' rule that keeps street performers from touching visitors and visa-versa," Goodman said.


Both are ridiculous but I guess it's better than forbidding it all when I was there years ago.

Speakin' of Vegas, (Video Below)

Man gets arrested for balloon animal.
The officer should've at least asked
him a few questions before he went
right into arrest mode.

It's not a crime to walk the streets
of Las Vegas like a drunken clown the
last time I checked, but if your rap
is below par perhaps.

In all fairness, we did not see what occurred
prior to the filming, but this just seems wrong!

I just could not take my eyes of the
pink balloon animal throughout this ordeal.
It just screams to be a scene in a Tarantino Film.

"Don't shoot me" ... that would have been funny if it wasn't for the gravity of the situation.

I agree we don't have enough information, for all we know they could have warrants for armed robbery. Certainly way to much aggression for just street performing; I hope more information comes out about this.

And here we see the effectiveness of arguing with the police.

Doesn't sound like a big deal. I'd like to hear a follow up to see if there's been much change...

I hope it doesn't affect the Master Class that Jeff and Mario are putting on in a couple of weeks.

Almost everything in this video is a lie. No new laws for Fremont performers have been proposed, especially not a no touch rule. This was mostly an attempt on the mayors part to make herself look good in light of a tragedy. If a law had been proposed it would have to go through Allen Lichtenstein, former attorney for the ACLU and current representative of S.P.A.N, (Street Performers and Artists of Nevada) the street performers association in Las Vegas. There is however a movement to clean up the streets but it is from within. Buskers who believe in professionalism on the street are stepping up and asking others to do the same.

In the beginning he asked if he was being arrested, the officer said no.

If that was the case then everything after that was a gross violation of his rights.

If he was being arrested then the officer had plenty of time to state that he was and to read him his rights.

This was just wrong.
If you need fear to enforce your beliefs, then your beliefs are worthless.
