It seems that the fast food crazies are at it again. This time over an employee doing their job at checking a $50 for authenticity.
What is frustrating is that the employee, who did nothing until the customers threatened and attacked him first, was held on $40,000 bail (though not indited), while the customers got off with community service...when none of this would have happened in the first place if the customers had kept their cool and let the guy do his job.
I know the guy went overboard on his attempt of defending himself. But I find it a bit insulting that the first article focuses on his past criminal record and his actions after the customers hit him first then LEPT OVER THE TABLE AND CHASED HIM.
Then the second article, it seems that they chose not to take the customers to trial was because the video shown above was too strong against them and any evidence in their favor was too circumstantial or unable to be found. (Wouldn't one think those would be *good* reasons to take defendant to trail?)
Then the employee even shows his remorse and better nature by saying he doesn't wish jail time on the customers despite their wish to see him imprisoned.
So, yet again, min-wage employees are verboten from defending themselves, are held under stricter scrutiny when they do, and the offending persons get a pity party for any repercussions they may receive.
Yes Ma'am! May I have another Ma'am?
