THANK YOU, MUSLIMS! Because of YOU, security at the Kentucky Derby from now on will have to resemble that of a maximum-security prison

UnknownTell me, Why are we still allowing Muslim into this country at all? Churchill Downs had announced security policies for the Derby and Oaks last Friday. But after meeting with law enforcement officials following Monday’s blasts that killed three and injured more than 170, the track tightened its procedures.

FOX SPORTS  (h/t CreepingSharia) The Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks are expected to draw close to 250,000 fans on May 3-4. The Derby will be the nation’s largest sports event since the marathon.

If you’re planning to attend the Kentucky Derby early next month, you might want to make sure you’ll be content with capturing your memories with a smartphone or point-and-shoot. Churchill Downs, the racetrack that hosts the famous horse race, has unveiled new security measures that will prevent attendees from bringing certain items onto the grounds. Among them: all interchangeable lens cameras.
