    A friend of mine posted that on his facebook. I usually don't really take part in those kind of petitions, but that one shocked me, and I decided I would sign and share.

    You can see the petition here : http://www.change.org/petitions/demand-that-the-employees-on-duty-at-mcdonalds-be-held-responsible-in-the-beating-of-a-trans-woman

    At least something good came from the video. The two attackers were found and arrested. And the guy that videotaped and posted it online got fired.

    The guy who videotaped it and posted it online should have been promoted for helping to solve this crime. In my eyes, he was playing the part of a journalist.

    Of course, that view is based on the assumption that he did it with the intention of bringing public notice to what happened. If it was for malicious reasons, then I agree with his firing.

    Journalist? I think you give him too much credit. He videotaped the incident for shits and giggles. He started taking the video before it got violent. And towards the end of the video, he actually told the attackers to leave because the cops are on their way.

    I'm kinda on the fence.. he's a dick for the above reasons. But without the video, the cops probably wouldn't have been able to ID the attackers.

    What they did was despicable but was she attacked because she was a trans woman?

    That has nothing to do with Mcd's man...There's some very peaceful Mcd's out there, and I go to use my laptop to log onto gay websites sometimes while traveling LOL.

    It's a Baltimore issue. Don't go to Baltimore, the city is already falling apart as it is so people have nothing to do but kill each other.

    (atleast it's better than some of the comments in that video blaming the Black community, as usual. As if we are the only one's who create hate crimes icon_rolleyes.gif

    I will never eat @ mcdonalds because they should have fired EVERYBODY that was there and didn't help. Not just the person that filmed it. The only reason why they even fired him is because he created this kind of bad press for them. I hate Mcdonalds anyways I barely eat there to begin with but now I will make sure not to if it randomly comes up.

    I'm just so disturbed and disgusted by this. UNBELIEVABLE!!! It made me sick!

    I like the older lady in the white- she seemed to be the best of the lot in the video.

    I don't know if anybody has actually had experience having to take care of "chick" fights, but I have in my past life as a doorman. The simple fact is that most guys will not get involved for fear of the charges that are likely to be brought against them. If it is on tape, you stand a chance. If it is not you are taking your chances with charges likely to be brought against you by the women.

    I am not saying that I wouldn't get involved (I would), but I am telling you that many people who might think they would get involved would not. Women may be the "weaker" sex, but when they really turn on you and you have to defend yourself there is a very fine line of what the police consider "acceptable" and what will land you in jail, a lawyers bill and a record. @ minimum wage, I am not surprised that the employees did not involve themselves- and I doubt it has much to do with whether or not the victim was trans. Most guys just are not going to get involved with a fight between women.

    It was only a week ago that I told a colleague about one fight where a woman was attacking two other doormen who were holding her boyfriend on the ground. I had to deal with her, and by the end the crowd was chanting to "put her to the ground" and for me to punch her. Instead, I restrained her while she kicked my shins, stomped my feet and dug her nails into my arms while trying to bite me until the RC's showed up. After that I opened the back door and tossed her in while apologizing to the officer (who had to deal with the guy before getting back to her.) She apparently wanted me charged, but there were too many witnesses and it was on tape...

    TheHottestTwink saidWhat they did was despicable but was she attacked because she was a trans woman?


    She was attacked because she was using the women's bathroom, and they claimed she was a man.

    However if I understand the article correctly, she's already had the gender reassignment surgery, so she had every right to use the women's washroom.

    And even if she hadn't, and could be plausibly be referred to as a man, it still doesn't give these bitches licence to take out their aggression on this person. If someone is in the washroom and they're not supposed to be, you call the manager, or the cops, and have it dealt with that way!

    All things considered, what I saw, and what I read convinces me that these two assailants were committing a hate crime!

    After all, lets suppose this was a guy who had used the women's bathroom: do you suppose they would've done this to him? I have my doubts: perhaps they might've slapped him if he had done something truly offensive...but to beat on him like this?

    This seems like a case of a couple of animals who saw an opportunity to wail on someone who was different! I hope they both catch a couple of back hands in prison!

    If that's the case, still doesn't give them the right to put their hands on anyone. They should of called the manager if it bothered them that much. Dumb broads!
