Attack in Magic Kingdom queue could land woman in jail for 15 years

Posted Friday, March 21, 2008 10:15 AM | Contributed by raptor6

Aimee Krause claims Victoria Walker cut in line last year then beat her up when Krause called her out. Now it seems the alleged "line rage" could send Walker to jail for 15 years. The incident report states Walker also tried to choke Krause with a lanyard she wore to hold water bottles around her neck.

janfrederick's avatar Well, if there are witnesses that saw the victim cut in front of her, she isn't getting 15 years.

"Victoria Walker cut in line..."
"Krause supposedly skipped Walker in ... line"
Which is it?

Jeff's avatar I'm pretty sure it's still illegal to beat the crap out of someone, even if they cut in front of you in line.

janfrederick's avatar Of course it is, but from cases I've read about, provoked attacks usually result in lighter sentences than attacks that were unprovoked.

I'm not saying that happened because I wasn't there and the article didn't interview any witnesses...

Still, choking someone with a lanyard in front of their kids...and assaulting them too (they probably got shoved aside when trying to help their Mom), is pretty harsh. I don't know about 15 years some manslaughter convictions get less time than that.

The story is pretty open. While I am sure there was a physical altercation, was there jumping in the 'q', or while guests were heading to the tea-cups? And, did Krausse take here good ole time heading to the cup, and was just passed up on the final few steps.

Which, if that was the case, I have seen many times, but still wrong. And what was the deadly weapon? The lanyard, or 2 cubes of sugar?

All jokes aside, you would think people would not do that after paying all that money to get into the park in the first place. Behave.

Cutting in front of someone in line could be construed as provocation for assault? Stop the world, I want to get off.

15 years? NOT gonna happen. Media loves this crap. Of course, depending on what level of corruption is involved, who knows.

I was attacked with a pint glass to the face, the guy could have got 2-5 years. Maybe b/c it's Disney, or big wig lawyers, referring to 15 years.

Cuttin' in line just aint right ;)

I think a better option for people who want to meet-up in line (no matter who you are) is to back-cut (go backwards in line).

Unless the Magic Kingdom as special extra wide lines (for the new wider Americans?), you can't cut without shoving past someone.

But if like AJ mentioned, that it could also have been a case of someone taking their sweet time when the gates were opened, then I would say the attack was unprovoked. I guess some lucky jurers will get to sort it all out.

Soggy's avatar ^ Speaking of unprovoked attacks, this Six Flags bashing opportunity brought to you by the Magic Kingdom, and taken by ApolloAndy. Proving once again that no topic can be put to bed without a jab at Six Flags.

I basically stopped saying anything to line cutters, provoked or not, I'd rather not be involved in an altercation.

^It really sucks living in America and giving up on standing up for yourself, doesn't it!?

I think there are quite a few of us that really STRONGLY feel that pay to cut, pay to get to the front, whatever you want to call it, is WRONG. I mean, if someone gets sick of me (or anyone saying that) do you think insulting that person (or me) or further talking about it will help your situation of being tired of hearing it? It is, a little numbing to hear constant complaints (I do it too!). The important thing is to let the park know how you feel about things when you visit. (of course, always be sure to point out what was good!)

It's nice to say good things about a park/chain too. Six Flags is improving and the Mindbender, Whizzer and Viper rock ;)

Soggy's avatar Fine, but why bring it up here, in a topic that has nothing to do with Six Flags? By the way, will your (or anyone's) complaints of these policies here on CB make them go away?

Look, a dead horse, let's go beat it!
