Earlier this week, Clark County Assistant Public Administrator Rita Reid went on the record with ABC News and Good Morning America on the Rob Telles murder investigation. Here is the segment from September 13th:

 

 

The local ABC affiliate, Channel 13 Action News – KTNV, has the full, unedited, interview here.

If you haven’t already heard, Clark County Public Administrator, Robert Telles, has been arrested and charged with the murder of local Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative journalist Jeff German. It should be noted that Rita Reid worked alongside Telles for three years before bringing information to German regarding the stressful work environment in the Public Administrators office. She ran against Telles earlier this year in the Democratic primary for the Clark County Public Administrator position.

After watching the unedited interview, it is obvious that Rob Telles was not an ideal boss or supervisor. According to Reid, Telles seemed to feel he could say anything, vent his anger, choose favorites, and assign heavy workloads to anyone he chose. German’s series of articles about the toxic work environment in the Public Administrator’s office were certainly going to anger Telles, but apparently, no one thought he would vent his anger in a murderous rage.

It is certainly a tragic state of affairs when Las Vegas and Clark County are part of the national news cycle due to a politically and emotionally charged murder investigation. Our condolences to the family, friends, and co-workers of brave, long-time, local investigative journalist, Jeff German. R.I.P.

Top 5: Las Vegas One Of The 'Rudest' Cities In America

Well, well, guess who made the Top 5 Rudest Cities in America...Las Vegas! The Mike & Carla Morning Show was quite surprised to find out that our own city made it into the Top 5 as one of the “rudest” cities in the country!

There’s a new study out published by Preply.com which looked into the rudest cities in America . . . but they DIDN’T even ask travelers . . . instead, they talked to over 1,500 residents of the 30 largest cities in the U.S. and asked them to rate their own city on “rudeness”.

As it turns out, according to the people that live there, Philadelphia is #1 on the list! Now keep in mind that the survey was based on how people were absorbed while on their phone in public, being noisy in public places and, most importantly, refusing to let people merge into traffic! Well, needless to say, when it comes to traffic, people here in Las Vegas will tell you that we don’t know how to drive at all, much less letting people “merge”!

And we’ve all run into those people that tend to be a bit louder in public trying to show off to others how much fun than are having than those around them…let’s face it, sometimes we can all get a little obnoxious.

Now some of the other cities that voted themselves into the being one of the rudest cities in America were Detroit, who we find out can be very rude, but not enough to crack the Top 5. Our nation’s capital was also found to be very rude according to the criteria of the survey.

But on the flipside, which cities are the most “polite” cities in America? No surprise that quite a few are in the Midwest including Indianapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee and more! Even the “Mile High” city of Denver popped up on the list of “polite” cities…as well as San Diego! Of course if you think about it, you’re living in San Diego, how hard is it to be nice? But the #1 most “polite” city was Austin, Texas! Guess there is something to say about “live” music, bars and “hook ’em horns” atmosphere.

But what cities made it into the Top 5 Rudest Cities in America and where did Las Vegas end up…scroll down and find out. Oh, and enjoy the segment from The M&C Morning Show talking about it as well…

    Known as the city of “brotherly love”, don’t think it’s any big secret that this city can be a little tough. Heck, they pelted Santa Claus with snowballs at a Philadelphia Eagles game…making this #1 on the list of “Rudest Cities in America”!
