Here's a video I found over at Black and Right. Apparently, members of the University of Central Florida’s Kappa Sigma Fraternity thought it would be funny to pull a "prank" on the people attending an event at the UCF Arena on Saturday. It just so happened those people were attending Glenn Beck's "American Revival". The students posted "Event Parking" signs in a restricted lot and the 53 people who parked there got towed.
As you probably already know, I was at that event and I'm really happy we didn't park in that lot. This may seem like a typical prank some dumb kids would pull, but I'm not so sure. It really was a shame because the people affected were in the UCF Arena for 8 hours and I'm sure they were looking forward to heading to their homes/hotels with the expectation of enjoying a nice dinner. Or maybe they had a 3 hour drive ahead of them like we did. Instead, they were left without a car and a $125 towing bill.
According to the news report, there's been over 30 recent events at the arena and this is the first time something like this has happened. With that in mind, I'm wondering if it was just a coincidence or were the students purposely targeting (oops, that's one of those violent words Sarah Palin uses) the Glenn Beck fans attending the event.
Good thing it wasn't an Obama event...
