Two Defendants in Disneyland Fight Miss Arraignment

FULLERTON (CNS) - A Compton couple facing criminal charges stemming from a brawl at Disneyland that was captured on video that went viral failed to appear in court this week for arraignment.
Andrea Nicole Robinson, 40, and her husband, Daman Petrie, 44, were scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, but they did not show up for the hearing, according to court records obtained by City News Service.
It's not clear what authorities will do to compel the defendants to appear in court, but there are no more hearings scheduled so far.
Robinson's 35-year-old brother and co-defendant, Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson, is due in court Sept. 30 for a pretrial hearing at the North Justice Center in Fullerton.
Avery Robinson faces the most serious charges of the three defendants. He is charged with one felony count each of domestic battery with corporal injury, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury on his girlfriend and assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of criminal threats, along with five counts of battery and four counts of child abuse and endangerment, all misdemeanors.
Robinson's sister is charged with four misdemeanor counts of battery for allegedly attacking her brother, his girlfriend and a Disneyland security guard, and a misdemeanor count of assault on her brother's girlfriend. She faces 2 1/2 years in jail if convicted.

The drama continues.

Well, Failure to Appear is an automatic Warrant. But there are so many outstanding warrants, that usually only if the police catch you doing something else, do they take you in and hold you until you see a judge. And nowadays, that judge just warns you to make sure and make your new date with the original judge, and releases you....

Crazy legal system here in California, and seems to get crazier every day......

The legal system is the same everywhere. Police, Judicial, and Jail resources are finite and are directed toward the worst offenders. A family that likes to punch each other is not going to be a high priority. No one would give this case a moment's thought if it happened at the local Walmart.

Isn't that a daily occurrence at Walmart?

All I'm saying is you just don't see this kind of thing happening at Magic Mountain.

With the pricing the way it is, I wouldn't be surprised to see a debtor's prison coming soon. New DCA land possibly?
New Disney CM program -- if you have kids 12-18 you can sign them up as indentured CM servants and get 5 nights free at any value resort and 6 day park tickets. Solves the layoff issue

(excerpt from article about gang violence in California theme parks)

Magic Mountain

In the 1980s a new amusement park opened up in the Palmdale area north of Los Angeles. Magic Mountain or Six Flags Magic Mountain was a huge park that became an instant success with young people in Southern California. Unfortunately this coincided with the worst explosion of gang violence in the history of Los Angeles.

As a result, the new administrators of the amusement park and their new security force faced the growing problem of L.A.'s traditional street gang members in the park. After several violent gang incidents, the security requested our assistance. The Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department, Operation Safe Streets Gang Unit helped train the Magic Mountain security force in recognizing and dealing with criminal gang members.


The big test came in May and June of each year when several graduating high school classes had their senior days at Magic Mountain. Several schools were scheduled for each weekend and many of these schools were rivals. We set up search teams to search each of the thousands of amusement park visitors. We prearranged Sheriffs Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) units to stop the pedestrians and vehicles that recognized and avoided the search teams. Even though the students were warned in advance and stood in long lines to be searched at the gates, we still recovered several piles of weapons and contraband three or four feet high. But the heavy artillery was captured by the SEB SWAT teams in the park parking lot. The well-dressed gang members who had fled the search ritual were inevitably armed to the teeth.


The 20 or so Operation Safe Streets (OSS) gang officers divided up into small teams and circulated in the park. And we, of course, found bands of gang members from various gangs that we were all familiar with. Surprisingly, most of them greeted us in a friendly manner; the gang members generally complied with our direction but acted like kids in a candy store. They openly laughed at the square non-gang members, just like those African predator cats they were surrounded by herds of prey around the watering hole.


Each weekend the OSS teams and the Magic Mountain security took hundreds of guns, knives, and other weapons in searches; broke up numerous potential gang conflicts; and helped identify and expel gang trouble makers from the family amusement park.


For years after that first graduation Magic Mountain security people stayed in close touch with our teams. But over the years those corporate lawyers and risk management minded administrators weakened that security force again. Soon I found myself forbidding my own children and relatives from going to that particular amusement park because it seemed to be a new gang hangout.
