    There was an article I read that stated it was caused by the perpetrators being unhappy that the victim used the women's bathroom even though she was really a he and that the victim was looking at/hitting on a perpetrators boyfriend.

    You support protecting McDonalds, an enormously wealthy corporation from a relatively minor amount of damages.
    You don't support protecting a transgender being brutally beaten for no apparent reasons.

    You have your priorities mixed up. That you're also "Very Liberal" is also ironic. Protecting corporate money, and beat the transgender, good democratic platform position.

    Let me guess. Only government can protect victims. Individuals cannot, and should not? That at least would be consistent.

    Who was fired. Bad press for McDonalds is a fireable offense, is why. Saying the cops are coming is a valid way to attempt to scare them off. Standing by and watching, that's strictly worse.

    What was McDonalds position, they should have let the girls keep beating her so the cops could get them? WTF people. I need to see what Goshin or some of our other law enforcements types remarked on this.

    Gotta agree with Mach here. If you're not willing to intervene as an employee of Mickey D's, at least you should be willing to AS A HUMAN BEING.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Sure thing. Based on the victims statement, I wonder if the whole "they were upset about him using a ladies bathroom" was completely inaccurate.

    It's seeming very possible that they didn't even realize she was a he until the wig came off, after the beating had already started.

    Guess we'll find out eventually.
