CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire police chiefs are confirming their stand against expanding gambling in the state.Now, I know this is New Hampshire, but this vote was near-universal, with only one abstention. Obviously, that's a lot of chiefs who think the crime, social ills and costs just aren't worth what the gambling lobby's boasts. Given that the lobby's representing interests that are going bankrupt all across America, that seems a very reasonable assumption.
Tuesday, chiefs at a meeting of the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police voted to continue opposing expanded gambling.
Lincoln Police Chief Theodore Smith, the association president, said 54 chiefs voted against expanded gambling and one abstained. The vote came after the chiefs heard presentations for and against expanded gambling.
