Stacy McCain on Why We Can’t Have Nice Things
Care to guess who was causing problems?A California amusement park was forced to close early after multiple fights broke out, causing panic.Gosh, I wonder who these “groups of young people” were?
Buena Park police also said numerous 911 callers also reported shots fired at Knott’s Berry Farm, though investigators determined no shooting occurred at the amusement park.
“We’re currently working an incident at Knott’s Berry Farm involving multiple fights in the park,” the Buena Park Police Department said. “A report of shots fired was reported with numerous 911 callers. Officers were on scene during the calls and determined there was no shooting.”
“Knotts Berry Farm has closed for the night, and we ask you avoid the area until further notice,” the department added in its public advisory published Saturday evening. . . .
Social media video showed park security tackling groups of young people to break up a fight. Additional footage showed a young male being punched multiple times by another park-goer on the pavement.
Orange County Fire Authority said three people were injured in the fights. Two people were transported to area hospitals, while the third declined to be brought in for additional medical treatment.
Too bad. I have fond memories of Knott's Berry Farm from being a kid. I mean, it wasn't Disneyland or anything, but I kind of liked panning for gold.
