    Huh. Well, now, if that's truly the case, and the guy admitted to encouraging a hate crime, then he's a ****head.

    Don't you just love ignorance?

    Yeah, he was stupid enough to post incriminating stuff over facebook, and twitter, I had a link, but I can't find it now. But that is the real motivation for the crime.

    I just found a link to a video some guy (possibly the one you are referring to, as I heard 4chan tracked him down via his facebook) took the whole proceedings. It's pretty nasty though, so I'm unsure if posting it here is okay.

    So what! I used to work at McDonalds and never would have let that happen to any customer and it would not have mattered who the victim was.

    Alright. Not everyone is you. Plenty of people simply freeze up in pressure situations.

    On a side note, after viewing the video a few times, one of the workers there actually breaks up the fight several times and tries to pull the black women off of the white woman, only to get slugged and pushed away. So it certainly wan't as black and white as that article makes it seem, if you'll pardon the pun.

    I would love to say I would jump into help but if I have a McJobby? I am not sure I would risk my life in order to jump in and do something. I think I would and risk getting fired. But I am not 100% sure unless I was in that setting.

    I would have taken a pan from the back of the kitchen, and beaten the attackers with it. My job wouldn't be worth watching someone getting beat within an inch of their life.

    Ideally I would've placed myself between the attackers and their victim and simply stood there. If they want to hit me, then go for it, I can take a hit and they'll be the ones being sued at the end of the day.

    I wouldn't take the chance of putting myself in harm, they would be getting smacked in the head, and I would trust the legal system to not charge me with anything.
