This one is funny too:

"...maybe they should not put people with violent backgrounds dealing with customers."

Maybe the customers should stay in front of the counter where they belong and not jump over to try to beat up the employees.

I swear when I read the article I had that same face. I loathe when parents cry about how great their children were, once they're on the news, got killed or on their way to prison. Please.

Exactly. Or maybe they should've gave up the act and left. If the money was fake and you knew it why put on a show? If they wanted to keep their dignity (HA!) they could've even acted as if they didn't know it was a counterfeit. Or even say it was change from another store, etc.

I DO NOT feel sorry for them. I'm sorry this worker protected himself and the first thing McDonalds did was fire HIM (no suspension or reviewing the situation). I'm a little disgusted about this to be quite honest. He makes minimum wage and IF he would've taken the fake money he still would've been in trouble. Will McDonalds hire security guards. . . NO. So why should he get fired for some idiot jumping over the counter. Was he suppose to stand there and let them pick up the hot grease and burn him? I just don't get it. . .

How can anyone think rationally in a short notice like this?

Because of the poll, and the fact that it cannot be merged into the crime thread without creating an issue, this thread is reopened for purposes of discussing items related to the poll ONLY. Similar crimes, videos of such, etc. belong in the crime thread, not this one. Thank you.

Hell yes he had EVERY right to do this. Those women are ghetto trash they will never have a realization that the way they live is wrong maybe this knocks some sense into them. The words and tone of voice these women are using are so unlady like. Then the fact that THEY slap him and jump over the counter to beat him thats it, and after all the name calling people can only take so much. I HATE women like this.

The moment I saw this video and heard the two chicks say "**** OUTTA HEAAAA. **** OUTTA HEAA." I knew it had to be NYC.

I don't know whats more hilarious, watching them do their best hood nikka walk after jumping the counter, or watching them get a nice dose of reality. Like that other poster said, perfect example of when "keeping it real" goes wrong.

Honestly, those woman deserve to get their asses beat. People in this city need to realize that they aren't invincible.

Too bad he cant sue because I believe he has a case. There is no reason why he should of been fired for defending himself or put in jail. The only reason i can think of is because those two who attacked him were females(but not women).
Good points. He was defending himself. Sucks that he got out of jail and got a job, apparently trying to go straight, to only have this situation happen.

Ya think?

I guess they're warming up for the lawsuit against the McD's franchise for hiring a man with a "violent background." These dirtbags have NO SHAME.

self defense. if they were 2 men and he was a women he would be herald as a hero and probably given the key to the city. this is sexist as it worse and feminism at its worst. hopefully they learnt a valuable lesson.
