It's a web comic I'm working on that deals with the very negative aftermath of legalized casino gambling in Detroit. Really!

All the cops needing to get second jobs now they can't shake down the gambling joints?

He's saying the aftermath of making gambling legal. As in, it was illegal beforehand.

Though I must admit, it looks more like a series of one shots than a collective preview of a longer comic. Ya know, since the panels make sense by themselves with no cliffhangers.

I do believe he meant that they could shake down the gambling joints before because they were illegally run, and now they can't, so no more bribe money.

Middlerun is correct. I also wonder what will happen with all the people running the old illegal joints having to deal with being legallities and legal compitition.

I plead temporary insanity. I was thinking of the illegal things that an otherwise legal gambling joint would do, like hire hookers.

I presume that the illegal joints will do everything in their power to maintain their illegality. Betting on the outcome of mortal combat will probably remain illegal, for instance.

For legal reasons, that falls under the designation "game of skill".

Technicality. Nothing can beat that man. Ooh, he gives me the shivers. Or the vapours. The flutters? I can't tell which.
