McDonald's Beat-Down Of Transgender Woman
It's the video seen 'round the blog-o-sphere but where is the outrage from the liberal media as a transgendered woman is brutally attacked by two African-American women at a McDonalds?
When at first it was thought that the victim was "merely a white woman" there were accusations that the video was only posted to drive racial tensions. Which might make someone ask if the video had shown a young African American being attacked by two out of control white women if that video might have been posted to demonstrate out of control racial prejudice by whites against an innocent African American woman.
The true story is that this is not even about race. This story is about humanity. How can one human being beat another so brutally that they cause the victim to begin having seizures?
One must also ask why the budding film maker did nothing to help the victim. Rather the McDonald's employee Vernon Hackett is heard warning the attackers that they should leave because the "po-lice is on da way" As a matter of fact he can be heard laughing hysterically at the violence in front of him.
While at some point we see the Manager asking the women to leave he quickly seems to give up after seeing the attackers leave and come back several times. The ONLY real hero is an elderly lady who begs the attackers to leave the victim alone only to be pushed herself.
Where does McConalds stand on all of this? Well a spokesman for McDonald's said: 'We are shocked by the video from a Baltimore franchised restaurant showing an assault. This incident is unacceptable, disturbing and troubling.
Well who's McLoving that? Not the GLBT groups. They want it to be investigates as a HATE crime. I would agree with them. It is a hate crime but it is a hate crime no matter the sex, race, or sexual preference of the victim so brutal was the attack. Oh but I forget, only select groups are eligible for such a classification.
Police said a 14-year-old girl had been charged as a juvenile, while charges were pending against an 18-year-old woman.
Have you seen this story on your news channel? If not you should ask why not.
I believe people should boycott the McDonald's in Rosedale, Baltimore. Let them know that ALL customers should be guaranteed safety when they visit. Let them know that you do not approve of an establishment that allows their employees to act like spectators at the coliseum while a human being is being brutalized.
