Scream Town shut down over anti-Somali racism

http://www.citypages.com/news/scream-town-shut-down-over-anti-somali-racism-update-owner-fighting-back/497029491


Just days after sending an outrageously blunt memo to his employees describing a “zero tolerance” policy “with Somalis,” Scream Town owner Matt Dunn is, well, done.


The Carver County Sheriff’s office announced today that it would no longer do business with Dunn for “grounds patrol, general security, traffic control” and other safety measures at his Chaska, Minn. attraction. It states explicitly in their contract that nobody can be excluded from participating in all that scary fun on the basis of, among other things, their “national origin.”

Dunn’s memo violated the contract -- along with county, state, and federal laws, according to a statement from Carver County -- so the sheriff’s department called it quits.

And since Scream Town’s conditional use permit as a haunted attraction depends on having that contract with law enforcement in place, the county was obliged to reevaluate its permit. County administrators quickly determined Scream Town was in violation not only for lacking sheriff’s deputies to manage traffic, but also for flagrantly discriminating against its Somali customers.

On Thursday, Carver County yanked the permit and issued an immediate stop work order. That’s it for Scream Town.

4. I thought Wright county was.

Either way, I'm not surprised that it was Carver County.

5. Okay,it would be a tose up.

Traveled and sold in both Counties for more than forty years. That type of shit wears on a liberal White Guy. So happy to not see these folks on a weekly basis when I finally pulled the pin. To this day,we are cautious when visiting Minny not to do any business in either County.

Same Families settled both Counties and their Great Grand Kids are now in charge.
