    Crime & Punishment: Log Flume-Based Discrimination
    A 52-year-old New Haven man, whose life's passion is riding the log-like flume rides in water parks, is suing Six Flags after the company banned him from its 18 locations for life. Jay Marc Harris, known as "Flumie" and "Flume Dog" to his friends (seriously), spends his summers touring water parks. At the Six Flags in San Antonio, he allegedly approached three moms, asking to "borrow" a child for a two-person ride. He seemed to dig his hole deeper when he specified that he would "prefer a young boy." Harris, a Hasidic Jew who wears a yarmulke-like swim cap at his beloved water parks, says his religion would preclude him from riding with a girl. The security guard who kicked him out apparently found reports of Harris hiding to stay overnight in the Six Flags in Chicago and chaining himself to a tree (to prevent his eviction) at the one in Atlanta. Six Flags banned him from all their parks. Harris is suing, claiming gender and religious discrimination. "It's a tragic story in my life," he told the San Antonio Express-News, adding, "[T]heir discriminatory policy of 'a girl whines, trash the guy' will scar me for life."
