KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Two women and a teenage boy were arrested Sunday afternoon after a series of fights marred Free Day at the Kansas City Zoo.

Kansas City, Missouri Police arrested 40-year old Minnie Davidson for resisting arrest. Another woman, Drucilla Davidson, 20, and a 15-year old boy were both charged with assault on a police officer.

The largest fight took place at closing time in the parking lot near the main entrance. But Mary Summers from Independence, Mo., told FOX 4 there was also a huge brawl earlier in the day in the Africa section of the zoo.

“Somebody yelled, ‘Gun!’ and that’s when I just threw my kids underneath the bench and threw myself on top of them,” Summers said.

It began with two groups in their late teens and early twenties flashing gang signs at each other.

“One guy just swung and hit the one guy and that’s when the two groups came together and they started fighting,” Summers said.

The fights took place on one of the zoo’s busiest days of the year. More than 29,000 visitors showed up to take advantage of Free Day for Jackson and Clay County residents.

From what I heard locally, it was just the Amish out for the nice early Spring day.

I think a good way to make money and teach people a lesson about staying out of trouble is to turn prisons into people zoos. You could charge admission, have a tour guide tell you about each prisoner, have the murderer exhibit, move on to the pedophile house etc.

Evidently the wrong species are in cages at the zoo.

One of these days, I hope National Review and Rich Lowry have the courage to apologize to John Derbyshire after firing him for his common sense essay about racial violence.

Funny. The video was of interviews of all "white" witnesses. Nothing of the perps. I hate this occupation.

Doubly... "there was also a huge brawl earlier in the day in the Africa section of the zoo. "

People should react towards these feral “yoots” the way they do to Pit Bulls.

Personally, I love Pit Bulls. But, if their handlers are corrupt and evil, the dogs are, too.

(I’m talkin’ to YOU, Democrat “handlers”.)

They should release the Lions, Tigers, Bears, Crocodiles, poisonous snakes, and Gators on the rioters.

I remember reading a book by a guy named Steinbeck about something similiar.
It was called “The Apes of Wrath”, but it was 11th grade English & I was dozing.
