    Chrissy Lee Polis: It Was A Hate Crime, I Will Sue McDonald’s | The New Civil Rights Movement

    I'm not sure that she has a chance in hell of winning anything. Someone called the police and as far as I know that was their only legal obligation.

    I doubt seriously McDonald's employees are trained or required to break up fights.

    I'm no lawyer and didn't even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I suspect that legally a person should have a reasonable expectation of safety when they're in a commercial business that's there for the purpose of serving the general public.

    Why? That would mean every business that serves the public would be required to have armed guards and that just isn't so. As far as I know, only banks do and that isn't to protect their customers lives as much as it is to protect the money.

    Well, you're wrong.

    Let's take armed robbery for example. McDonalds, as well as most fast food restraunts , probably all, has a WRITTEN policy that employees are not to resist and are NOT to interfere, just hand over the fucking money. So if a burglar smacks a customer around , McDs has a written policy that an employee should stay out of it. I'm sure the same policy governs here even though it isn't written down, although it probably will be after this case.


    This should be thrown out in summary judgment.

    Not when they engage in inflammatory and abhorrent behavior. He may of instigated the incident by using the ladies room.

    They have no more of an expectation of safety inside the building then they do outside the building. Restaurant employees are not qualified to provide security.

    Just an FYI...

    The guards at banks...many of them NOT armed...are trained to protect the public...not the money. If the customers are not harassed, they are trained to allow the theives to leave without incident.

    Guards in bank transfer trucks are trianed to protect the lives of their partners and themselves and thus why they carry weapons. They, too, are trained to "let them flee" if the heist is successful.
