And yet another "conspiracy spin" layer...
Were Muslim agent provocateurs involved?

im not sure how much ignorance there really is in this thread considering 2 security guards ended up in the hospital. then the muslim patrons claimed 'police brutality'. id say that tidbit of info says quite a bit.
OK... Let’s give a hypothetical situation...
Let’s say that there was a couple of rough white family’s at the funfair. They are asked to remove their hats, for safety reasons, and an argument and brawl ensues.
Unacceptable? Of course
You then go on ATS to find comments like...
"Those whites should be deported"
"I didn’t think whites were allowed on roller coasters"
"What’s the problem with these dumb white war mongers"
You don’t think that would be ignorant stereotyping???

Hmmm, Middle Easterns don't appreciate it if they pay to get in and can't ride the rides
I mean, thats probably why the whole argument started.
Man:" I paid to get in here you can't do this!!"
Attendee:"Yes I can, I don't care if you paid!"

wow, its sad to see all of these members bashing Muslims while the mods do nothing about it, blaitant hypocrisy in my opinion, but really we all act like this wasn't a negotiable situation...cant we just say both parties were at fault? Honestly how hard is it to secure the hijab so there are no segments flailing around?? what i just cant believe is how many bigots are on this site...like of all *-*-*-*-*-*-* places..really? gtfo

I don't know if the moderators will remove this but I find your remarks to be insensitive to one's beliefs....as it would occur; something like 3 billion people in the world practice the faith known as Islam and Ramadan has just ended and to celebrate these people of God(in scripture and truth) that is were singled out and dealt with unfairly as I am to interpret it. You sound uneducated and frankly speaking might not be of importance to future times ahead. I still don't wish ill upon you. The head scarf can be worn flush to the head which would have solved the issue

if i showed up wearing a long ass ponytail, and they said i couldnt ride, and i made a big scene saying, "no! this is my religion! my beliefs state that i cannot tuck away this ponytail it must be showing at all times!"
they would say, "uh, ok, then you can't ride the ride.'
and i would be out of luck.

being at the theme park has to be a violation, at least!
when was the last time you saw nuns on one?

None of you police-state lovers have explained how or why a SCARF would cause any danger to anybody, whatsover. The very unlikely scenario that it got sucked into a wheel or something is the only thing I can think of. But as far as endangering the passengers, whats it gonna do flap in their face and make them have a heart attack? This is America ffs people do what they want if it isn't blatantly putting others in danger and I don't see how a scarf does that, its not like you are super glueing quarters to the roller coaster tracks.
edit: I guess its a possibility, albeit a slim one. The wheels should have some sort of cover over them to prevent birds and stuff duplicating this kind of thing. If Fabio can get hit by a bird in the Nose then whose to say a bird cant fly in the wheels. There should be safeguards in place, as for the chain that pulls the roller coaster up to the top, thats a different story.edit on 9/1/2011 by smarterthanyou because: (no reason given)
