McDs doesn't need him to have committed a crime in order to fire him. Even if all he did was give the women bad service, or use profanity or something, they can fire him for not meeting their employment expectations, never mind pounding them with a metal rod. LOL

What McDs needs to do is review the vid and the witness accounts, decide if his actions were reasonable by their standards, to what degree management was responsible for the situation, look at the big picture of the guy's employment, and make a decision that is fair to him and protects the business.

If this guy was constantly on edge, getting into arguments with other employees, showing up late, being rude or threatening to other customers, then this may be the last straw for them, regardless of how justified his actions might have seemed. If he was a good employee and they feel like anyone would have done what he did, then they'd probably want the guy back.

They also have to consider that they'd look like fools and be even more liable if they hire the guy back and in a few months, he's involved in another altercation.

I'm glad the GJ had the good sense not to indict him. If the articles are to be believed, this guy had his life back on track and I hope he can continue that with all this behind him. I watched the vid again for the umpteenth time and it still makes me smile when face-slapping-and-counter-jumping hubris transitions into omg-what-did-I-get-myself-into cowering.

Funny how this guy is going to sue McDs and there's no mention made of him suing the two women that attacked him. First rule of civil lawsuits, it doesn't really matter who's at fault, go after the one with the money.

The double irony is that if McDs can be found liable for creating the situation by not supplying security, etc, that opens the door for the 2 criminals to sue McDs as well, and they could end up getting rewarded for acting like fools.

So basically she's saying "Even though I started the fight, and I would have gladly beat him to my little heart's content, he should have beat me to a lesser degree than he did."

I hope this case gets tossed, or he and the franchise owner countersue and win HUGE. Not that they'd ever collect from her, but this is an opportunity to make it very clear that you will not be rewarded for being an hole.

A grand jury refused to indict McIntosh after seeing a video showing that Darbeau and Edwards jumped over the counter and started the fight.

McIntosh, an ex-con who got out of jail in March 2011 after spending a decade behind bars for killing a friend, was released, but the two women were charged. They pleaded guilty last month to starting the fight and got probation.

So in all honesty, I was being serious when I replied to you... I'll promise to "check my people", if you promise to get a handle of yours, kid. I would love to take my kids (the black and white ones) to a McDonalds {because Im an active BLACK father} without worrying about hood b!tches getting rowdy over a messed up order, or some crazy white fvck that cant deal with his wife getting banged on the side by someone else, and decides to shoot the whole place up. Sound like a plan?


Me too Swish, me too..
