Rye's reasonable rules
New York Post
The finger-pointing is well under way over Tuesday's melee at Rye Playland involving Muslim holiday parkgoers incensed that they were asked to remove religious headgear on some rides.
Police were called out in force, and 15 people were arrested on charges including disorderly conduct, assault and obstruction of governmental administration.
Despite accusations that Muslims were being targeted because of their religion, it seems clear that the county-owned park's strict policy -- instituted three years ago -- is broadly worded to cover all headgear on faster rides, like the Crazy Mouse roller coaster and the Dragon Coaster.
