Employee of the Year… Almost

This incident happened in the NYC McDonalds. Two women came in and placed an order, for which they presented a $50 bill. The cashier had questions about the bill’s authenticity. Instead of just asking for the manager to come over, one of the women attacked the cashier, climbing over the counter. The second woman goes around the counter to attack the cashier. The cashier ran to the back of the store with the women following, at which point he picked up a metal rod, and put both women down…

At this point, the cashier gets my vote for employee of the year. The women should not have physically assaulted him, and were way out of bounds jumping over the counter to go after him when he tried to retreat. The cashier grabbed what looks like a long tire iron to defend himself.  The initial beat down by the cashier was well deserved. Where things – for the cashier – start to go wrong is when the second woman tries to get up. It’s unclear from the video whether she was trying to attack him again or get away. He hits her several times knocking her back to the floor.

With both women down on the floor, the guy doesn’t stop though, despite the effort of a fellow employee to get him to stop beating them – even though they are both down and pose no risk. He also apparently hits one of the woman on the head, a potentially lethal strike – and completely unnecessary.

So yeah – the guy deserves the felony charge the police charged him with. But both of the women also deserve felony assault charges.

Oh well… As James Brown said, “I may not know Karate… But I know K-razor!”… or in this case K-tire iron. Put this one under “American Genocide”…

    No risk?

    Gun, anyone?

    Unconscious is a good baseline, but he should’ve gotten the skull fracture and knock-out in the first flurry, instead of having to go back in for seconds, and the vindictive thirds may have been extra.

    Personally, when attacked, ALWAYS aim for a lethal counter. If the assailant survives, it just wasn’t their time…,

    • Now you are talking “street” logic, versus the law. It appears that the one that threw the first punch was already out. The second, third, and fourth beat downs were on the one who walked around the counter.

      One woman suffered a broken arm and and pretty severe skull injuries.

      I have not seen anywhere where a gun, or any other weapon was found at the scene.

      And from a legal standpoint, your best response is a disabling strike – unless you are in a Southern state with those “imminent danger” laws…

      In which case you pull out your gun and shoot to kill.

      Personally, for years I carried a 1971 Cadillac Eldorado tire iron under the seat… Hit you in your toe and it was lethal!
