I have been in a similar situation having been thrown out of an AL walmarrt for supposedly flashing a customer while in drag. When their security came up to me and asked me to leave they said a customer had complained i exposed myself to them. I told them they had cameras and if I had done it i would be under arrest and not asked to leave. In m case the situation went further as i complained as i left and they decided to call the police and tell them I was drunk and flashing people. That resulted in some charges and some firings at the store. You have to have a good reason to call the police, and a rowdy group of threatening black people would be a reasonable thing to call about if they were threatening. That is why they did not call because there was no threat.
    You're naively acting like anything not requiring calling 911 for the police is acceptable behavior. In many cases, it's better for both parties if issues can be resolved without involving the police. It can be as simple as asking somebody politely to leave.

    Since I asked first, I expect to see the proof that I asked for first.

    Once I see that, I'll think (Not hard.) about providing proof that it didn't happen.

    Don't hold your breath while you're waiting for it.

    I didn't say anything specific happened. My point is that you're naively assuming we've got the whole story when we've heard one side. I guess you didn't learn from the TM case that the whole story doesn't always come out when reported.

    I am telling you, a business owner with rowdy customers who are threatening each other and are legitimately a danger to be together calls the police. What happened here was someone said they were loud and obnoxious and they felt uncomfortable. I have no doubt the group was loud. If a group is too loud and rowdy to go to a place you do not say a customer felt threatened you tell them that they are too rowdy to be seated. you are really stretching this to try and excuse it and say it is not racism and it clearly is. If a group of 25 people were so rowdy the waitress could no sit them and they were told to leave that sort of group would have hung in until the police came. What this group did was leave peacefully. That is downright wrong.

    The entire thing smells like made up BS to me.

    If it did happen: I see 'a customer complaint' as an excuse by management to dodge a blow. . . because since WHEN does any restaurant kick out '24 well behaving PAYING patrons' because ONE PERSON claimed they felt threatened?

    I'd like actual evidence it even happened. I wouldn't put it past someone to just make up a baseless accusation because they were peeved at the service (for no reason, even) - Evidence that it happened would be surveillance footage. We could then see:

    1) How the group was behaving (if they were really there)
    2) Another customer actually complained (if it really happened)
    3) They were kicked out as a result of that complaint (if it really happened)

    If it even happened at all - it just might be a made up story beginning to end - which I think it is. Who in the hell supposedly waits for two hours to eat, anyway? That's the gist - they weren't even IN the restaurant. What were they supposedly doing? Chilling out in the parking lot for two hours? I don't think so - who in the hell would DO THAT?

    There is no evidence - this all started because of a Facebook post . . . and I'm not going to be the idiot who believes any of it without any sort of PROOF.

    Restaurants send away people who misbehave.
    They send away people because they are a group of TWENTY FOUR waiting for 2 hours and there's still no seating for TWENTY FOUR people. (This is what I expect happened - and the race/customer complaint is made up. If it happened at all).

    I just don't believe any of it. . . sounds like he's full of **** and trying to incite a race riot.

    Is this what we've come down to - believing anything that's on the internet as if it's some sort of truth.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Maybe because they were regulars, they liked the food and maybe because it is not that easy to sit a party of 25 and they were told that they could be seated there.

    Were you there? Was the group of 25 acting as "peaceably" as they say. Or is it their word against someone elses.
    And you are just automatically taking the black family's side?

    Gather up 25 of you and your friends and family and see how many chain resturtants and seat you at the drop of the hat.
    Most chain resturants dont have any seating for 25 in one place at one time.
    And wait for 2 hours? Sure, if the plan was to get the resturant in some sort of trouble. Be asked to leave, or told there is not enough room. Bam, instant facebook and twitter barrage and lawsuit coming.
    Just like the "disabled" that go find theaters and resturants that have seating too close together or no elevator to the second floor or just the right hand rails.

    Please realize that there's no proof it even happened. This all started because of his Facebook post - nothing else.
