Article Photos: Las Vegas seen as dangerous even as crime drops 1/2

FILE - In this Feb. 21, 2013 file photo, law enforcement personal investigate the scene of a multi-vehicle accident and shooting in Las Vegas. Variously known as an adult playground and Disneyland for grown-ups, Las Vegas has worked to brand itself as a place where tourists can enjoy a sense of edginess with no real danger. But a series of high-profile and seemingly random incidents that have left visitors to the Strip dead or in the hospital is threatening Sin City’s reputation as a padded room of a town where people can cut loose with no fear of consequences.
