I would not count on the McD Employee Not having a gun.

Wow, I guess everyone is literally packing heat these days and not afraid to open fire. The cook in that link was charged with murder, good.

I would say this is on the minds of most people these days, the sense of 'community' has all but been lost these days.

I'm starting to wonder if these guns are starting to effect our prison systems? Are gun related arrests and imprisonment related to increased prison numbers?

The craziest thing is that that woman beat the customer because she was afraid to lose her job. As if attacking her was going to help her keep the job! Some people need to think.

Yes, it's infuriating, and yes, I'm sure many of us like to think that we would have done something far more 'heroic,' like going in for a kung fu arse whupping Chuck Norris style.

But despite what we claim, we truly don't know how we will act in any given moment, for any given situation.

What if it were a situation where a guy 6 foot 6 and 300 pounds of pure muscle was doing similar to a woman? Or a pack of criminals? Probably not so brave then.

Sense of shock at what's happening, event not even registering until it's over, things of that sort.

Just saying, at least I'd admit that I never know how I would act for sure in different scenarios. If that makes me cowardly so be it.
What I KNOW is that I'd not be standing by such a scene taking pictures of it for my own entertainment.

I can't think I would not do what I could to stop it.

I simply want to know why is she not charged with a hate crime?

So she finished off her own job by attacking the customer.....

Also I can't see any McD Asst Manager firing someone for not giving a happy meal toy.

Back in the Dark ages, 70's we were told if someone wanted a toy just give it to them. They are not a inventoried item.

Fast Forward, 2 weeks ago. My son works @ McD Same thing, If someone ask for a HappyMeal toy, just give them one.

Maybe there was not one in the bag, maybe it broke, maybe they lost it, or it went into garbage can by accident. Or was the blue one, and the kid wanted the Red one, or there is more then 1 kid...

I'm not saying that anyone should have necessarily jumped in. But come on! Call 911! You have your phones out already! Wtf. It's disgusting that they couldn't even be bothered to do that. Especially after she threatens to beat up the little boy too.

I smell a lawsuit in that McD's future. I don't normally feel bad for McDonald's when they get called out for something, but this store is a franchise. Hope the owner doesn't lose his shirt over this...

And seriously, did Latia have to spit on her???? WTF
I'd think so, and it would be well justified, especially if the victim was injured.
