sources with deep knowledge of the investigation said exclusively to the Laurel Leader-Call. The sources spoke on the condition of strict anonymity because they were not permitted to speak on the record.


Yeah right...

Everyone is taking face value on this, its not proven. They have a lot to lose and the money to cover their tracks. Why people jump to conclusions and then swing the opposite without remaining somewhat neutral and listing possibilities, is beyond me.


Like assuming 'the elite cover up for each other', like assuming 'it seems like an odd thing to lie about' - those aren't too assumptions and conclusions being jumped to based on bias rather than any type of proof... and certainly show a complete lack of neutrality from the person who made the comments, don't you think?

I have to agree with some who have posted that we don't have any proof this was a hoax, any more than we do proof it really happened. A source, unnamed, claims it's a hoax, and claims there was no such visit, no such order. Where is their proof? Why is their claim any more real than that of the grandmother? Yes, she certainly could have hoaxed the incident; people have done such things in the past. However, I think the proof should be shown, if it's real. Doesn't seem like the paper printing the article saw any such evidence.

Either way, the company handled the story well; stating that they didn't agree with such a thing being said, and offering compensation.

Any making death threats against employees should be arrested. That's beyond ridiculous. Banning the place IF someone made a comment like that is equally foolish. Firing an employee for it, I could see being reasonable, if the story was/is true.

The surgeon should do the work as he promised. It isn't the child's fault her grandparents kept dangerous animals, or that a lie was told, IF one was told. Helping her is the right thing, regardless of the details.

I'd think releasing the surveillance videos of the time period in question would clear up whether they were in the restaurant or not.

Two possibilities to consider with such little information to go on...

1. Grandma is lying (which would be my first guess)

2. The offender actually felt sorry for the little girl, and decided to sacrifice their minimum wage job so that she wouldn't be disfigured AND poor for the rest of her life.

Either way, KFC is the one getting screwed here.

P. S. I have a third guess as well, but I'll keep that one to myself until we get some more information.

Sorry Charles but I just had to.

I've been following the threads on here about this story. What just popped into my mind after seeing this one was whose pit bulls caused the damage to the childs face to begin with. Why it was her own Grandfathers' three precious pit bulls.

Pit Bull Attack on Victoria Wilcher

Not to say that this little precious baby girl deserved this attack, none do, these dogs are VERY dangerous, I've had to deal with neighbors who've had them, my family elsewhere too.

It just seems that they are milking the situation that they themselves have put their grand daughter in to begin with. It's a shameful thing if this is true.

Alaskan proverb:
Believe NOTHING you hear, and only HALF of what you see.

It has served me well!


Perhaps this was a planned attack on KFC by a rival company.
Maybe the 'independent' investigation was a phoney cover-up.
Maybe the grandmother is a liar.

The only way we get played is if we allow ourselves to be sucked into the drama.

So you're saying the best solution is total apathy?

Assume everything is a lie and you won't ever be fooled? Er, okay...

You know what? I never understood why people always take up a fund to donate to people when something mean happens to them. Bus attendant gets bullied by some kids and cries - send her some money. Waitress claims she got a nasty note about lesbianism, instead of a tip - send her money (oh she lied too), Little kid gets bullied in a fast food chain - send some money. Why? Just weird.


It is super weird now that I think about it. I it's just an easy war for people to feel like they are making a difference. But surely it would be better to donate to an anti bullying organization or something, whatever fits the particular incident.

The seems hard to believe from several directions.

If true, grandma is a real piece of work.


Businesses are also liers, it is always possible they made a deal to call it a hoax, deal with the family and the employee to get money and say it was a lie. Who knows but it is odd that they didn't simply talk to the employees from that day and find it untrue come forward and say employees dispute this, instead on National news I saw and apology.

Anyone else notice that even in a made up lie the Grandma only purchased food and drink for herself and nothing for the child? I would say it's pretty damning when even in a fantasy you neglect the child in your care.

Hush now, I'm trying to think of some kind of gimmick for me to cry to the public about.
I'ma get me one of them new Hummers if they open the doors back up!

/sarcasm



Funny how we let the opportunities pass. I once got a large bottle of RC Coal and it had a fat rat in it that took up most of the bottle, never drank RC cola again. Once at Taco Bell back when I ate meat, I got a taco with what looked like half a human tooth in it, nearly broke my tooth on it and was so sick wondering about it, helped me go vegetarian.

Suppose you own a business and ONE nasty employee says something horrid to a customer...why should the owner and the other employees be punished I am sure they would all be as astounded as we are about anyone doing such a miserable weird thing!

No matter what happened, the end result is that this world is crazier than it's ever been.

If true, Granny is one disgusting individual.

If not, the KFC employee (s) is one disgusting individual.

In both cases, disgusting is the main word and in any case it just represents a cruel reality...

This world is screwed up.

Because it's an assumption, and the poster said assumptions shouldn't be made. Not sure you felt the need to abridge my post though.

My heart is breaking even more for this little girl now... not only did she have to experience an animal attack, and all the medical trauma that followed... but those who are supposed to love her and protect her used her tragic situation for financial gain.


I pray there are some good people in her life to protect and nurture her. I can't imagine how she will look back on this situation years from now, when she is old enough to understand what happened.

Not really. Given the litigious nature of society, this has become a common method of damage control which is sad in that it encourages these sort of scams.

Things that have been proved are NOT assumptions.
