Absolutely correct. She was not arrested for it, she was fired.

Exactly. We have the same code of conduct where I work. Anyone making such a statement online, would absolutely have been fired. The girl is a complete ass; she made the wrong decision, and she will pay for that with the loss of her job. It happens. Some people just take longer to grow up.

Anyone that could ever enjoy that cardboard has obviously never had a real Philly hoagie.

I have had a phillie from phillie, but most of us live nowhere near Philadelphia and can't get that so we have to take what we can get. The west coast is a sub sandwich wasteland. All we have are subway and jimmy johns.

Honest girl working her ass off at Subway for minimum wage is a thug.

Congratulations, you have totally reversed the meaning of an English word. I guess you must be really happy that a Subway employee got fired for exercising her First Amendment rights. Now she can go on welfare.
  1. A policeman who shoots an unarmed man, of any race, and found to have done so illegally in a court of law, is a criminal and a thug.
  2. A policeman who punches a violent person, of either gender, in the process of restraining them from the violence is doing their job.
  3. A policeman who smashes phones is breaking the law. They should be punished.
The girl at subway is not a Thug unless she was criminally violent. I saw no evidence of that nor what salary she was making.

She's a fast food employee. What does Subway expect, solving quantum theories by those people? I'm sure she will sue now stating here "rights" were violated. What a disgusting and stupid thing for her to say.

The downside of course....having to go to Philly.

But yeah, chain burger, pizza, sandwich joints have no chance against the real deal.

So, one of Subways minimum wage sandwich makers (out of 100,000 or more) is an idiot and they fired them.

No one is going to boycott Subway over this and the concept is stupid.

Who knows what the motivation is for the boycott call, probably just a dumb idea by someone picked up by the media and repeated because....it was a really dumb idea and the event is big news.

Um.
That always happens.
One Starbucks employee says something to a breastfeeding mom and the whole corporation is evil.
One ChikFil-a employee gives a free meal and the whole corporation is wonderful.

These asinine media stunts are de rigueur.

Yeah, it's unfair to punish an entire brand (which is comprised of hundreds or thousands of different franchise owners) for the actions of a single, random 'sandwich artist'.

To me, the real issue (and course of action) would be to boycott elected officials, hip hop artists, etc who demonize & dehumanize police officers. If you find that a rapper, or your mayor, etc, is working to agitate against police.. don't vote for them, don't buy their albums. That's an effective, direct course of personal action..

Very ignorant people embrace the race baiting, cop hating rhetoric. The **** stirrers don't care about the uneducated people who swallow their hateful agenda; they use them to further their goal only. I find their propaganda and impact on impressionable, young minds sad and very discouraging.
