(Nashville TN) Police Shut Down Wave Country Due To Unruly Crowd (VIDEO AT LINK)
News Channel 5 ^ | 05/30/2011 | News Channel 5

Posted on 05/30/2011 4:37:47 PM PDT by The Magical Mischief Tour

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nearly two dozen police officers were called out to Wave Country on Monday afternoon and were forced to shut the water park down two hours early.

The intense heat brought out thousands of people to the park's opening day.

Metro Parks director Tommy Lynch said Wave Country was nowhere near capacity, but there were plenty of problems that caused the park to close early.

Metro Police were called out to Wave Country around 1 p.m. because the crowd outside the gates and inside the park was acting up.

The decision was made to close the gates, and eventually the entire park. That's because several people were not taking directions from staff and police.

There were several fights inside. Police said one of the biggest problems was people jumping the fence to get into the park, creating chaos inside the park.

Wave Country will re-open on it's regular schedule on June 3.

URBAN WEEKEND Wasn't 'urban weekend' done at Daytona Beach for years? With the same problems?

Our culture needs to grow up, get real, and quit handing out passes to gang bangers based on guilty white liberal elites' feelings.

I’d bet Wave Country will close down permanently with in the next few years. You can’t make money with hoods and thugs hanging around.

I believe the park here in Memphis met the same fate, for the same reason. It is also one of the biggest reasons Liberty Land was closed. (I believe it was that word “Liberty” in the title.)

It didn’t tell me anything I hadn’t already guessed.

The Fire Dept. in the town near me had to close their Carnival after over 50 years of having it, when a low cost project was set up behind it.

Six Flags in Largo has had a mess of trouble I stay away from it. It’s the same all over, they seem to think they are entitled to jump the ropes, jump the lines and do as they please.

Parents are being irresponsible if they expose their children to the chaos and dangers of places and events that attract or house trouble makers.

All places where trouble makers tip the balance, go out of buiness or stop functioning. Entertainment centers and resturants close, grocery and drug stores go out of business, schools stop teaching and when it is hopeless, tax payers and all businesses relocate.

The only reason the other services in these areas continue is off the backs of taxpayers, but if we keep the gates wide open to massive immigration and expand socialism, that will tip as well. Our country is overwhelmed just like the Marxists want it to be.

I made a small observation the other morning....while driving into Tulsa, OK. Coming through N. Tulsa in the wee hours of the morning...I noticed many businesses. ( Subway, Auto Parts stores, Gas Stations, etc...) Had metal roll up doors, over their entire fronts.

I thought it very telling....

Yes, N. Tulsa is mostly a black part of town.

Fact is...if I was a business owner there I'd surely do that...but frankly nowadays..I'd do the same anywhere.

There was a nice 1/4 mile dragstrip near my hometown that had a Juneteenth event. There was a totally different crowd than usual. Someone welshed on a bet on a race, and a shooting occurred which resulted in a death.

It closed soon after. For years, I spent many happy Friday nights racing there.

Exactly as I thought.

Luckily, the “Splashing Safari” waterpark in southern Indiana is far enough from Louisville to avoid most of these issues. Of course, I have to tell my kids not to play with all the hair extensions that wash up in the wave pool.

Liberal racism has fed this problem - and others like it all over the country. Liberals tell blacks that they can't be held to 'white standards'...

When elite liberals hand out passes for this kind of behavior -or just refuse to allow anyone to discuss it without being called a 'racist' - they are basically saying blacks are uncivilized animals who can't be expected to act like adults.

That's more racists than any conservative calling for reality checks on out of control actions. Another park closes down to protect the feelings of guilty white liberal elites. That's wrong.

Or another stadium can't get fans - rich liberals place stadiums in bad neighborhoods because they're 'oh so enlightened'. Then fans quit going to games and no one talks about the real problem. It's NOT racists to expect all racial groups to follow the law.

It is racist for liberals to assume blacks don't have the wit to act decently.

When I was young blacks had about the same marriage rate as whites. Under horrible circumstances black fathers worked jobs and supported their families. This kind of criminal behavior ( including what happened in Miami this weekend) just did NOT happen.

Black poverty pimps set the stage for 'anything goes and everything is whiteys fault". It can be reversed. If not these criminals will join up with radical Muslims and expressed their tantrums in a more violent way.

A discussion of race is needed. One that includes conservatives ideas.

In Atlanta, Six Flags became known as Six Thugs about 5 years ago and it typically devolves into ghettofest with fake gangbangers and hoochies by the time July 4th rolls around. Tough to say what goes up first, the metal detectors and pat downs at the entry gates or the Closed Down sign.

I’d say less than 5 years if they don’t get a handle on it.

I watched them kill off a new fancy mall in downtown Memphis (Peabody Place) in less than 10 years. The new state-of-the-art movie theatre went out a few years before that.

Got to be thug city at the mall and it died.

They put the new minor league baseball stadium downtown a few years back and I never went to another game. They moved the basketball stadium from midtown to downtown years ago and I never went again.

I am talking about Memphis, they keep moving everything downtown and I just won’t go. They is a reason many people live in the suburbs and it ain’t cause they want to go downtown.

As long as there is a Black Congressional Caucus these things will continue unabated. The I’m owed mentality begins with many of the black members of Congress and cascades down to the gang-bangers.

Two major shopping malls in Louisiana were forced to close because of black teenagers loitering in them in such numbers that it was impossible for shoppers to feel safe moving from one store to another. One was in Shreveport and the other was in Marrero.

My wife and I went to the only shopping mall in Monroe one Saturday and experienced the same thing. We have never gone back at night.

With the hoard of teens, shop lifting is rampant because several will enter a store, one or two will distract the clerks while the rest take what they want and walk out.

I don’t know where that would be, and remember , their money is green and they will spend it.

These people do not just build a park, they look at the neighborhood, they study the dynamics of how much money they will make at the location, they go where the money is to be made.
Everyone in America today is mobile, pople do not mind traveling to get to amusement parks.

In the old days you paid by the ride. Today you pay a high price at the gate and ride the rest of the day.That is a part of the problem. People pay by the day and they don’t want to wait in a line they want that ride.So they start jumping the line. Pay by the ride would break a lot of that up, but of course they would have to hire more people to sell the tickets.

In what way? Do you mean that if more people had jobs, they wouldn't be at the water park? It was a holiday weekend. Or that if there were more jobs, people would wait patiently in line? My family didn't change its behavior when my husband was unemployed.

“Police are saying people wont take redirection???”

I thought that automatically resulted in a beat-down and a ride in the back of a patrol car.

Is there some reason the police are being so restrained? Think it has anything to do with political correctness?

Almost every day there's a story about a violent crime in the news. I play a game with my wife. I describe the crime to her; if the perpetrators' names are in the story, I tell her the names. Then, I ask a simple question: Are the perpetrators (1) Asian, (2) Jewish, (3) German or (4) African-American? Guess what! The answer is almost always (4).

When can we stop pretending that the fact that the answer is almost always (4), doesn't tell us that we have a problem we are not addressing?

This is a cultural phenomenon. There are white trash cultures and black trash cultures. Violent and criminal behavior is not a result of skin color, but rather a response to decades of liberal thinking and policies and media and "community organizers" such as our current president. No, I am not saying these people are victims. They are responsible for their evil behavior and they will pay for it in this life or the next.

The problem is made worse by people pretending that it does not exist and I am grateful for places like FreeRepublic where it is exposed.
