Policing Authority Stripped From Popular Theme Park After Facing Sexual Assault Allegations

Any theme Park should be a place where both Guests and Team Members can enjoy and create memories while feeling safe and protected by Park operatives and personnel. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. We have followed the tragic situation that has been going on at Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio, for over a month, with nearly 30 allegations of sexual assault made by Team Members at the Park’s employee housing and more claims coming to light as investigations continue. The latest update stated that Park officials were in talks with local authorities to develop an action plan regarding this shameful situation. Credit: Cedar PointThese negotiations resulted in an agreement between Cedar Fair, the Park’s parent company, and the city, described as “a new partnership.” Part of this agreement includes disbanding the Cedar Point police department as the city of Sandusky strips this policing power from the Park and takes over these responsibilities. This agreement was announced by the city in a press release Friday morning. The statement said, in part, “The policing authorities of the Cedar Point Police Department will be fully transitioned into the Sandusky Police Department’s operation, and the Cedar Point Police Department will focus solely on security operations at Cedar Point and its local affiliated properties. Conversely, the Sandusky Police Department will assume all policing responsibilities and its affiliated properties.” Credit: Cedar PointAccording to city officials, the city police department will hire additional officers, and Cedar Point will pay the costs,

‘Star Wars’ Betrays Fans AGAIN, Divides Fandom After Ruining Iconic Moment

***SPOILERS FOR OBI-WAN KENOBI*** Obi-Wan Kenobi promised fans something that Star Wars didn’t deliver. Credit: LucasfilmRelated: Darth Vader Reportedly Involved In ANOTHER ‘Star Wars’ Series Prequel Music. Duel of the Fates. Battle of the Heroes. These two songs were all over the marketing for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Right now, the series is using a new rendition of the song to generate hype for fans to watch the series, but the show doesn’t include the song. Star Wars: Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker (2019) was almost named Duel of the Fates which leaves fans upset at how Star Wars continues to hype fans up and then disappoint them. The finale does bring in the Force theme, Leia’s theme, and the Imperial March, but the show was supposed to bridge the gap between the Prequel Trilogy and Original Trilogy. Credit: LucasfilmRelated: Obi-Wan FINALLY Reunites With Iconic Jedi In ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Fans have already begun editing the final battle between Kenobi and Vader to include some of the prequel music which has led people to be very upset that Disney refuses to use the music in any new Star Wars content. It’s not that fans think Natalie Holt’s music is terrible, but the scenes where Prequel music should be present make the soundtrack appear to be lackluster. The duel already has so many callbacks to the fighting style done in the Prequels and Kenobi even says a few of his iconic lines so it makes sense that some
