Jury Rules For Park Security at SFMM

Thursday, August 8, 2002 5:59 AM

I would've submitted this as news, but it's a subscription site, so it has no direct link:

From Amusement Business: A Los Angeles jury ruled in favor of Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif., on July 25 in a case brought by 10 patrons, ages 12 to 19, who claimed they were beaten and thrown out of the park for no reason. The jury determined the security guards, who said the kids cut in line and ejected them from the park, acted properly. There was five weeks of testimony and two days of deliberation. - N.E.

See, there is justice after all!

Guess they didn't have any real bruises. I doubt they were beaten and thrown out Security just threw them out and I'm glad they did. If you cut in line I say you diserve to be beat.

SFMM is actually doing something about line jumping? wow

Six Flags, the only chain of parks that can manage to have stacking with a one train operation.

They busted a quite few people when I was there last October...

Is this that case from last summer where they tried to claim that the security was being racist against them? Just curious. Anyway, if the kids linejumped, they got what was coming to them, they need to learn to take responsibility for their actions, and hopefully this is a wakeup call to them telling them that they can't just go out and find scapegoats for everything they ever do.
