   It would appear that the cops overreacted...It's what they do in this era of the Ne Gestapo. As for the "riot", it's a crock! If the group was warned that the scarves were forbidden, then they should have respected the "safety rules". Without being there, I'd say they were purposefully trying to make a point. They were idiots who where attempting to claim a religious bias, and their tactic got out of hand. They should have been given a refund, assuming that was the "flashpoint"; however, if they knew they would be turned away, they should have stayed the hell away. The whole event is crap! The cops are crap! The Muslim crybabies are crap! And, as for the kids, it's a damn shame they don''t have any adult role models!

Your comments are very ignorant. If you want to send them "creepy people", may be Indians should send all the white people back to wherever (europe maybe) white people came from. Hypocrisy has a new name, its called islamophobia. The 0.6% (not even 1%) Muslims of America scare you so much don't they. Oh wait the klans are 5 times the numbers of Muslims in America. Oh wait, no neo Nazi’s are great people.

Point is, don't hate folks, standing for your rights (including the rights to wear certain type of clothes), regardless of region, race, gender and religion are inherent rights of the people.
