Six Flags says it probably will reevaluate itsprocess in the wake of an attack on a teenager on park property this past summer.
Three seasonal employees have been arrested for participating in the beating of a 19-year-old Marietta man just outside the park. The employees, ages 16, 17 and 18, have been suspended and will be fired if found guilty.
The attack, so severe it left a shoe print on the victim’s face, involved as many as 25 participants and witnesses in what appeared to be an act of gang violence. One of the suspected employees is a member of a street gang called Young Gangster Living.
Six Flags says it conductson all employees who are 18 and over. But Georgia law does not allow on underage applicants. That leaves Six Flags, which hires many young seasonal workers, in a quandary.
