A história de uma mulher que foi forçada a se retirar de um parque por usar um short muito curto está dividindo opiniões nas redes sociais. A mulher foi identificada como Bailey Breedlove, segundo ela, no final de abril, ela e sua família foram passar a tarde em um parque de diversões da empresa Six Flags, na cidade norte-americana de Oklahoma City.
Porém, durante o seu passeio com sua filha, um policial se aproximou dela e questionou suas roupas alegando que seu short estava muito curto para o local. Bailey, que sofre de autismo, pediu ajuda do seu esposo para falar com o agente policial.
Todo o incidente foi gravado e compartilhado nas redes sociais dividindo opiniões entre internautas. No vídeo é possível ver com clareza o momento que o agente segura o ombro e grita com Bailey na frente de sua filha.
Bailey relatou em sua conta no Facebook sobre o ocorrido, e segundo ele, o policial a envergonhou na frente de sua família e de outros estranhos, devido ao short que ela usava.
A mulher disse que o policial propôs uma solução para ela continuar no parque se ela comprasse uma roupa adequando em uma das lojas no parque. Após ela comprar uma roupa adequada, suas algemas foram retiradas. “A polícia fez minha filha de 11 anos chorar histericamente pensando que sua mãe estava prestes a ser presa”, disse Bailey.

Update: we have spoken with the Oklahoma police department captain and he assured us this was NOT an Oklahoma city police officer.This was my experience at six flags. Trying to at least get my money back and let everyone know about their "policies":Hello. I was at your park and 4/30/21. My experience there was traumatizing. I purchased tickets and parking online which was a lot of money. My family an I were welcomed into your park just fine at 5 pm. We were having fun, enjoying rides and spending money on what we thought was going to be a great vacation spot in Oklahoma city. About 7 pm my daughter was yelled at by a park police officer for rolling down a hill on her heelies right next to me, I was holding her hand. Then she proceeded to follow me and grabbed my shoulder to turn me around and proceeded to tell me my shorts were "too short". I committed no crime and proceeded to walk to my boyfriend as I am autistic and have a hard time talking to officers. She followed me yelling and calling for backup. Then your incompetent manager showed up and began body shaming me. I was told I needed to go buy new shorts which I am not obligated to purchase anything I don't want to. Then I was threatened with criminal trespassing when I agreed to buy new shorts so my family could enjoy their vacation. I was then pushed and escorted toward the entrance. Accepting this, we were about to leave and were blocked by your female officer from leaving and she pulled out her cuffs and demanded my ID. When we asked for probable cause their answer was "because they are the police". At this point we started recording so we do have video of the unlawful tactics. They wouldn't provide us with badge numbers and I was terrified I was about to go to jail over a pair of shorts. Your officers had my 11 year old daughter crying hysterically thinking her mother was about to be arrested. Your policies are vague and confusing and the way you body shame and discriminate is unlawful. I paid a lot of money at your park for our family vacation and I believe I deserve a refund for the trauma caused to my family over a pair of shorts on a hot day. I will not be letting this go as this is 2021 and not middle school. The Oklahoma police department has been contacted as well as an attorney. I have a 5 year ban now but will not be returning to any of your parks if this is how you treat woman and law abiding citizens and visitors. You should be ashamed with yourselves.https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=4116522335054159&id=100000892997490#sixflags #frontiercity #oklahomacity #okcity #okcommunity #sixflagsmagicmountain #sixflagsgreatadventure #bodypositivity #womansrights #okboomer

Após o ocorrido a pediu para ser reembolsada pelo dinheiro que gastou no parque. “Pelo trauma causado à minha família por um shorts em um dia quente. Não vou deixar isso acontecer, já que estamos em 2021 e não no ensino médio. Nós entrámos em contato com o Departamento de Polícia de Oklahoma, bem como com um advogado”, desabafou Bailey.
Por outro lado, a empresa Six Flags, proibiu Bailey em entrar nos seus parques de diversões por 5 anos.
