DISCRIMINATES AGAINST CHOICE OF ATTIRE AND PEOPLE!
Attention Bikers!!!! This review is provided due to a recent incident where a 63 year old biker was told to remove a biker ?do rag? as he was on his way out of the facility by Security after spending 2 1/2 hours there. He was there spending money, taking a break from the heat after riding with his wife on what could have possibly been his last ""freedom"" ride for a while, (he was having heart surgery the next day). He removed the rag as requested; but VICTORYLAND SECURITY had a problem with his questioning of ?WHY? the do rag had to be removed. Other people with stockings on their heads, (I believe these are called do rags as well) baseball caps, and hats that covered half their face were left alone. Security got peeded off and made threats of jail numerous times; when the bikers were trying to get answers to why the rule only applied to them, and only to the ""do rag"" (to which of course, they had no logical answers). Upon the bikers asking VICTORYLAND PERSONNEL their names, the Victoryland Security Officers and other personnel turned their name tags around refused to provide them (however, names were obtained from other staff members present). The only answers heard from Security on why the difference of a ?do rag? or other headwear was ""because we said so"", and ?it's a new rule?... why the do rag and not other headwear? What do they tell women with breast cancer, religious people with scarves, do they ask them to remove them? The treatment of these bikers was totally out of line and unjustified. Upon these bikers leaving; Victoryland Security followed them out and continued to harass them on the side of the road and called Shorter Police to stop them. Shorter Police had nothing to do with the harassment by Victoryland's Security and were somewhat perplexed as to the request to stop them and more perplexed at the request of Victoryland Security to remove the do rag!!
