Bo Dietl Lost His Guns

Bo Dietl Lost His Guns

Richard “Bo” Dietl lost his guns. The former NYPD Detective and media contributor on Fox News and the Don Imus show, founder of Beau Dietl & Associates, subject of a film where he was played by Stephen Baldwin, and Chairman of the New York State Security Guard Advisory Council was featured on Jon Stewart’s show for being himself burglarized. What’s funny is that his description of what happened, particularly his focus on the security measures he had in place but that weren’t used, follow the well worn pattern of responses one typically hears after an information security breach (but we were PCI compliant, we had IDS in place, it was a sophisticated attacker, everyone gets hacked, and so forth).

The MGM Casino in Las Vegas is robbed

The MGM casino was the victim of a robbery early this morning. Police responded at 4:42am according to a representative of the Las Vegas Metro police stating that a suspect produced a handgun, robbed the casino of an undisclosed amount of money, and fled using a motorcycle. This is not exactly an Oceans 11 style heist.
