A family of 5 were arrested for fighting with police after security denies them entrance to the park for carrying knives.

What a delightful looking family.

The woman/girl looks like an extra from the classic Twilight Zone episode, "Eye Of The Beholder."

There's nothing I like better than redneck antics. (from a distance). When I saw the photos I wondered which one was the mom. Then, upon reading the article, come to find out she wasn't involved directly, but was over there attempting diversions by faking a seizure! You know, you can't make this stuff up. I don't think I've laughed so hard all week.

Seems even in New England no self respectin' gentleman goes anywheres without his huntin' knife.

I was gonna make a knife joke, but I decided I wasn't gonna take a stab at it.

Sounds like a family full of mall ninjas*.

I read every bit of that. Oh. My. God.

That right there is one special kind of stupid.

This won't ever happen in FL - someone would feel threatened, and stand their ground. Never bring a knife to a gun-battle-in-waiting.

When you know you're going down, fake a seizure.

That's what she said....

I'm feeling pretty good about my family right about now.

Truth is always stranger than fiction. I don't know whether to laugh or roll my eyes.

A fake seizure? Seriously? Ugh.

I'll bet $20 that at sometime during the dispute one of them said "Hey!!...This is AH-MER-i-CAH!!" - the universal chant of ignorance.

OK....So I have to ask....If those were hunting knives, what on Earth would they be hunting in an amusement park? The occasional squirrel or rabbits that happen to traverse the park grounds ? Or were they hoping to get lucky and stab a pigeon or a sparrow and bring it home for supper ? Just when I think Ive heard it all....

Trying to take their knives into the park.... I guess in case they see an opossum or a raccoon or maybe a squirrel run by... The park has a 'No outside food' policy. Them rednecks figured if they caught lunch inside the park, it was not outside food!!
