It's Eid...those guys were probably looking to have a good time at a theme park. *shrug*
...just read the op article, and yeah, they asked for a refund--they should've been given it and escorted out.
stupid. on both parties' sides.
Many Muslims were given refunds as they left the park disappointed.
Yeah...but when were they given them? Before or after the violence? The article doesn't say--so did they peacefully hand them out and then they needed the 100 cops that responded because a riot of hijab-wearing mommies with kids in strollers made the place suddenly unsafe for all?
I'm betting not.
I'm betting it was once 15 people were carted away, their kids and grandmothers crying, that the ticket counters all of a sudden opened up and gave out the refunds in rapid-fire fashion.
The Muslim organization that organized the event should have checked the park's rules before inviting 3K people there, half of whom wear headscarves.
As to the WEARING of said scarves, it's more of a cultural preference these days, religion's just used as a placeholder excuse.
