Bravo, Six Flags

Haven't you wished, just once, that these jerks would get what's coming to them?
A Winnetka man was charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly grabbed and pushed a 14-year-old who clapped when the man was ejected from a ride at Six Flags Great America last week, police said.
Making this incident all the more special... this wasn't some clueless teenage kid the park tossed and prosecuted. It was a 53-year-old man from the lily-white, rich-folk Chicago suburb of Winnetka. (Well, at least it was when I lived in Evanston. And the racial slur he allegedly used against a ride operator sure didn't help win him any benefit of the doubt from the park, I suspect.)
The Trib story quote the suspect as saying that he was "having a bad day."
Well, thanks to the news of Six Flags' prosecution of this fella, my day just got a whole lot better.
