People have always behaved this way, as you said the general public has cell phones today and simply captures the events now. That does not mean they are occurring more often "these days".

I'd like to see someone smash the windows of her house with a baseball bat and then just walk away.

The Jamaican owner handled the situation very calmly. If it were Asian shop owners it would have likely not ended well for the crazy lady...

Probably section 8 housing, so the owner would have to do the repairs.

I don't know where this happened (not going to bother watching video) but around here there's a burger joint on every block in town. Couldn't she have just went down the road?

???? The owner did the right thing, but if you look online, there are examples of many Asian store owners who would have taken her out. They are not afraid of thugs that try to damage their stores and would not be afraid to "rat on a sister with a swing like that..."

Maybe she's on a softball team.

Funny, one of the commenters wrote: "they should be happy they got great patties"
I also think that she made an advertisement for the restaurant.

The news descried the lady as "always cordial", so this behavior seems unusual to her, I'm thinking
As I know, there is a phase for pregnant ladies when they have a strong desire to eat specific kind of food frequently, some times could be strange or unusual things like pizza with chocolate instead of cheese, for instance, I don't know what's called in English. But since she is pregnant, maybe she's going through this phase to such a strange extent. In anyway, it's unjustified.

One thing's for sure. Those Jamaican Beef Patties must be really, really good.



New slogan: Swing by and try it!

It may be that some of these aggressive behaviors are drug induced. There's a lot of people on various street drugs like meth.
