Family Outburst at Local Water Park: Is Racism a Factor?

Today at Rapids Water Park, a loud and disturbing argument began over a simple feud regarding chairs. The Merzier family, who stayed after the opposing family was escorted by police gave us the statement that, “They were sitting on the chairs we claimed first and were prejudiced towards us due to our skin color.” Says the mother, Nadedge Merzier who was holding her infant child during the attack. The family says they will be pressing charges because of the harassment, specifically towards the teenage boy who started the fight because of his choice to let Nadedge and her baby sit in a chair that he had taken from his own family’s lot to cause trouble.
