社評 0908 拉斯維加斯名記者遇刺身亡
警方表示 ，杰門是在週五晚上和人發生爭吵之後被刺殺， 他們已經有些線索。
市長古門在案發後表示非常震驚， 她對於令人髪指之行為， 并誓言一定要找到兇手。
杰門是《拉斯維加斯紀事報》專門報導社會新聞，尤其是黑社會事件， 他已経在該報服務了二十多年， 他對於當地黑社會頭目及賭塲情況非常瞭解， 並和他們結下仇恨 ，他曾經詳細報導過拉斯維加斯曼德里赌塲之大屠殺事件。
杰門之被刺殺反應了賭城社會嚴重之問題， 許多犯罪集團非常厭惡記者之報導， 事實上這些集團勾結不法份子為非作歹。
目前経濟情況普遍不佳， 賭城情況大不如前， 全國各地不肖之徒都會來到賭城謀生， 因而造成社會動盪不安。
杰門命案仍然在偵辦之中， 我們希望警方全力偵辦， 早日抓到兇手 ，繫之以法 ，我們也要在此向杰門家屬表示由衷之禱念， 他在新聞事業之崗位上鞠躬盡瘁。
Reporter In Las Vegas Stabbed To Death
Investigative reporter Jeff German who worked for the Las Vegas Review-Journal was found stabbed to death outside of his home Saturday morning.
Police officials said they believed German was in an altercation with another person on Friday that led to his death.
Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said in a statement that she was “shocked” to learn of German’s death.
Mayor Goodman said, “This was a senseless act of violence and loss of life in this manner. It is always shocking and must stop. We will be closely following the police investigation.”
German was a reporter covering organized crime, the courts and politics for the newspaper for more than 20 years.
He covered a range of stories from one about the death of casino heir Ted Binion, to regular stories on misconduct by government officials.
German’s assassination reflects the serious problems of Las Vegas society. Many criminal groups hate reporters.
At the present time, the economic situation is generally poor. Many of the people who moved to Las Vegas to make a living made the society unstable.
The murder of German is still under investigation. We hope that the police will do their best to investigate and catch the murder as soon as possible and bring them to justice.
We also want to express our sincere condolences to the German family.
