    A patron felt threatened, not the staff. But cited material seems to indicate the assumption of a threat was reasonable and based on actions of one of the individuals from the party threatening a deaf person, and general unruly and disrespectful behavior

    You are an evasive one, aren't you?


    You can't possibly be so dense as to not understand the analogy. Even if you are, I won't run in circles chasing you.
    Carry on.

    Has the restaurant had a response yet? Something tells me there might be another side to this story.

    Who said they felt "threatened"? And if they did, who are you to assume it was "unduly"?

    Okay, thank you for the civil discourse. I sincerely appreciate it. Like I said earlier, if it is in response to claims that their wait was influenced by race it makes sense. Unless of course a group of 25 white people without reservations came in and were seated. Highly unlikely.

    Although isn't unruly and disrespectful a bit of a subjective thing? Why would they not first ask them to quieten down? Why leap to throwing them out? Again, sincere questions. I still don't feel like there is enough real information to know.

    Another customer felt threatened and complained to the staff.

    There is a question as to whether or not there was a genuine threat. Why do you leap to the conclusion that is was justified? I don't leap to the conclusion that it wasn't.

    Did you not read anything linked to?

    The WERE asked to cool it. According to they themselves, they were asked to leave not then, but when they started making a fuss about being asked to chill out, and one of them pulled out a video camera and started recording everything.

    Sorry. I didn't see your reply?
    Will you kindly tell me the post number?

    If you have a second I'd appreciate you telling me about your assessment of my "mindset", too. I'm sure I'd be fascinated...no..really...
