Unfortunately, the measures imposed almost everywhere by the current health crisis have consequences that are not necessarily expected. Indeed, it happens regularly that people get upset or lose their composure because of the rules to be observed in certain places. We think of this event which took place at the beginning of the week in a Lidl store in the north of the country, when a customer went completely mad because a cashier asked her to wear a mask.
In France too, we feel that the tension is palpable, and we witness totally mind-blowing scenes. The latest example to date is an incident that erupted in Parc Astérix, not far from Paris. Last Friday, a gang of young people and three operators of the attraction “Tonnerre de Zeus” came to blows, explains the Courier Picard. But in this case, nothing to do with the measures to fight the coronavirus. Indeed, after a ride, a young man wanted to recover his cap, which he had lost on the way …
Except that, as the deputy director general of the park explained to our colleagues, “the cap was in the red zone. Therefore, you had to wait until the attraction was closed before you could get it back. ”
Disagree with this measure, the group of young people attacked park employees and a fight broke out. Blows were exchanged and, according to the Parisian, three employees were injured.
The gendarmes then intervened and arrested three people, including the owner of the cap. A complaint was filed and an investigation was opened.
In the columns of the Parisian, park employees denounce “a tense climate and difficult working conditions”. In order to attract people in this period of crisis, the park offers tickets for 30 euros for 15-25 year olds instead of 51 euros.
“It brought back lots of gangs of young people. And this year, it was really a mess, ”explained an operator for five seasons.
