Six Flags Valencia, CA.– An off duty police officer shot the new “Black Panther The Ride” attraction at a well known amusement park. Officer Jimmy Griffin who was off duty at the time shot the ride 8 times shortly after getting on. In a statement Officer Griffin said â I thought I was going to die. Iâve never come across something that big that could hurl me around like I was nothing.â
When asked about his experience on The Captain American Ride which claimed the lives of five people a year ago due to structural problems, Officer Griffin stated âI rode it today. We were stuck on it for an hour. That ride needs help, it has a lot of problems but deserves a chance to be great. You canât blame a ride when the design system fails it.â
One witness to the shooting of Black Panther the Ride said âThe ride should have complied, I was sitting behind Officer Griffin and several times you could hear him screaming âOh God, oh God, oh God! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!â but the ride kept going.â
Another park goer, Jennifer Schulte aka Barbecue Becky visiting from Oakland CA. said she called the police earlier in the day because the ride looked suspicious. The ride is expected to survive. Officer Griffin was placed on paid administrative leave and plans to spend some of his time off at the amusement park.
