Police arrest 15 at Playland in dispute over Muslim headwear
New City Patch ^ | 8/30/11 | William Demarest, Zach Oliva, Nik Bonopartis, and Renea Henry

Posted on 08/30/2011 7:28:23 PM PDT by Nachum

Fifteen people were arrested and the entrance to Playland was closed Tuesday afternoon after a dispute at the park involving religious dress.

Police from multiple departments from throughout Westchester County were called in for assistance.

The dispute broke out at about 2:30 p.m. near the park's entrance between members of the Muslim American Society of New York, according to Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of Westchester County Parks. Fighting began when they were told they would be denied access to certain rides if they wore religious garb, Tartaglia said.

Two seasonal officers were injured while joining Westchester County Police who were trying to break up the scuffle, he said.

About a year or so ago I was reading a article about a Muslim woman who died at a go cart ride when her head wear got caught up in the wheels.

Who started fighting; who was arrested?

I posted a few weeks ago about how awful and aggressive these pigs were starting to act right here in the City. It's insufferable and they're doing what they do best: causing trouble and making life miserable.

Dozens of attacks against whites by black youths and no cops, and one Muslim with a head scarf and bingo, multiple departments respond.

At least it seems that way...

So, have them sign an agreement not to sue if their garb causes them harm on the rides. Mayhap several more of them will lose their lives by being stupid and a lesson learned.

Not trying to be harsh, just getting tired of people trying to be stupid on purpose.

I just can't get my head around muslims going to a place called Playland.

It reminds me of that story last year about some British amusement park sponsoring a Muslim Fun Day.

I still chuckle over that.

If you were a ride operator or the company that owned the park, do you believe that these people would not sue? No hold-harmless agreement is worth anything if they get hurt.

Nope, if the park felt it was dangerous, there was little else they could do.

Gee.....my pet pig and I have been on EVERY ride at that place....we’ve been on EVERY seat of EVERY ride in that park. He LOVES rides!!!
As a matter of fact, I used to take my pet pig’s brother there in the past. He recently passed away and I buried him at the park. He was a good pig.

Playland warned the organization of safety issues FOR THEIR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY ON CERTAIN RIDES! Can you imagine what would have happened if they were let on the rides and because of their dress someone was killed? There seems to be more and more agitation by various Muslim groups. They are looking for a fight. They are intimidating America and we better wise up on this influx of warriors. They are inciting violence.

"So, have them sign an agreement not to sue if their garb causes them harm on the rides".

That would not necessarily protect the park. Courts will reject an indemnity agreement they deem unreasonable. A court could still find the park negligent if there was an accident.

Apparently we don’t mind the occasional (LOL!) mob violence against whites, HOWEVER, to do violence against any muslim is a gross injustice.

We are so afraid to either offend or object to anything muslim, we are totaly paralyzed as a nation. Muslims win.

Christians, gird yourselves and pray for the soon return of Jesus.

they feel emboldened because they have one of their “own” in the White House. We are being conquered by them without a fight.

So... why exactly are we telling them they can’t wear their headgear?

If you don’t like it, then feel free to get the F out of this country Muslim. There is myself and tens of millions of my fellow AMERICANS that will be more than happy to help you move out of our country. No offense...

The lesson here? Put lots of black berry brush on what ever side of your property you think zombies in head scarves and burkas are going to attack from.

Let them wear their headscarves!

Right after they sign a waiver for liability so their men can't sue the park after their chattel women get their stupid heads twisted off when the scarves get caught up by the machinery.

So they weren’t denied access to the park, merely told that they couldn’t ride on some of the attractions wearing hats? And the big outrage in that is...?

Expect this from every koranimal when in groups.

They assault the security guards & the cops while claiming to be the victims.

Typical POS koranimals.
