[UPDATE] McDonald's: No workers comp for employee shot protecting patron


www.foxnews .com

At 9:57 AM 02/25/09 during the Fox News Broadcast with Megyn Kelly she was proud to announce that between FoxNews & other attention: The owner of the McDonalds franchise where a shooting incident occurred leaving a worker seriously injured after a confrontation with a patron, has agreed that no matter the outcome of the Workers Compensation Claim he assures that he will step in and pay the medical expenses (upto $300K) of the shooting victim.

This has not been posted to the web yet into an article form and I don't know how to transfer the video from my DVR to post it yet.
I've provided a link to the FOXNews video's page showing the original report.

I know that many people were discussing this in the ATS forums and even sent letters to McDonalds regarding their appearent disregard for their employee doing 'the right thing' in protecting another patron from an attack.

Looks like the letters may have gotten their attention!

[Applause for all involved]

Sorry about limited links but it seems that it is THAT new even though Fox reported it 30 mins ago it's still not even on their website. Not my fault. But I'm sure that those that posted earlier will be very interested in this follow up.

I know I for one sent McDonalds an email saying I was boycotting there food chain and would pass along the story to friends and familly, This is the response that I got:




Thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald's to let us know your thoughts on this unfortunate incident. Because this restaurant is an independently owned McDonald's and a claim is still pending, it is not appropriate for us to comment. The owner of this restaurant hopes this claim will come to a quick resolution and the right thing will be done. Again, thank you for contacting McDonald's. McDonald's Customer Response Center

Well that is nice of the owner to do.
But the fact is, that employee should have called the cops.
Not tried to be a hero and get involved in domestic disputes.

you wouldn't say that if some huge guy was beating on your little sister

and i'm sure itwasn't with the forethought of being called a hero,,,,,he did what he thought was right,,,and hopefully someone would do if it was a female in his family


your part of the problem,,,,no compassion for others,,,,,or a sense of what is right and wrong,,, and probably someone who can't take a stand and probably hasn't the backbone toi stand up for what you believe in,,,you'll backtrack and trample your own beliefs

and we wonder why america is in such a state of degradation


for anyone wanting a link to the video footage

Yes I would, don't tell me what I would or wouldn't say, you don't know me.
Stop assuming you know everything, because it makes you look a little unstable.
Stop being ignorant and trying to make out this moron McDonald's worker, caused any less beating to this person.
It had already happened.
All this moron did, was cause a shooting incident.
If he had called the cops and said a guy was hitting a girl in his restaurant, they would have been there in 10 seconds.
Call the Police, like you are supposed to, and stop trying to be a demented hero and making things worse by getting involved in other peoples fights.
I do not try and push what I think is right or wrong, upon other people, because im not an ignorant fool.
You are obviously an ignorant fool who knows nothing, so I wont waste my energy responding to your stupid comments any longer.

how do you know he wouldn't have continued hitting her,,,,,are you psychic

if you are i suppose you are smarter than me,,,,,,, i just hope no one you know or love is in trouble and everyone around holds your beliefs and stands there watching,, as they are beaten,,,,,and hopefully they will survive

i don't plan to argue,,,,,,i figured the response i would get whenb i wrote the original reply


you sound like a jerry springer show

only on ats

Its people like you, ignorant fools, who are responsible for getting other people killed.
By thinking you are a hero, and always trying to save the day.
Can you imagine, if the perpetrator, had have got an Uzi out of his car, and started spraying the whole restaurant?
The moron who tackled him, would be responsible for more than just getting his own dumb self shot.
The crime had happened, the perpetrator was not beating the crap out of someone.
He hit the woman, so call the cops, you witnessed a crime.
Why do you think the cops get paid?So McDonald's workers can fight crime?
They are trained to deal with these situations, McDonald's school does not train you for this.
This guy is not a hero, he is an idiot, who could have got many people killed.

you certainly proved my point exactly,,,,,,thank you so very much


two posts ago you stated:

so what did u do???? uh-huh

so again,,,as i stated,,,,your a type of person who says one thing,,,, and then does another,,never willing to stick to, or uphold a belief

you hold no values or stand for what you say



once again,,, i hope no one you know ever needs a good samaritan,,,, and people like you are the only one's a round


ps... people don't go around constantly looking for a chance to be a hero,,,,situations arrive,,, and people take action through their beliefs or subconscious thinking of right and wrong or human compassion

so by your thinking,,,,

should we have entered wwII to stop hitler????

because by your theory,,,,,people were already dying, the jews being burned alive,,,,,,,however sending our troops only caused more deaths,,, to not only german soldiers our troops killed but americans soldiers that we sent over there


we only aggravated the situation by interfering causing more death


but hey,,, it's all good,,,,,, we may think opposite,, but i guess we both win,,,, because

i had to examine my beliefs to respond and i'm sure you did the same as well,,, and i had to think real hard to figure a way to prove my theory or disprove yours
i looked from your point of view and you from mine

so we both learned and agree to disagree and we'll end this peacefully

neither of us will win or see the others view

i was getting all into winning an argument,,,,,,which i hate to get like that

see yah in the next one,,,,maybe we'll be on the same side ehh????

Give him credit for being a man,the problem these days boys are raised like sissys,if I saw some guy beating on a girl I wouldn't hesitate to intervene,seems these days it's all about you,I had 3 sisters ,anyone layed a hand on them they dealt with me or my big brother,he did what he was supposed to,rather then act like a girly man and run and hide cause he might hit me next

Kudos to the owner for helping his employee, who helped their customer in a situation where any real compassionate human being would've stepped in.

You can sit at your computer and say the guy should have ran to the phone, dialed 911, waited for the responder, told them what was happening, told them his location, and then waited for the police to make their way there and break up the fight, all while the girl is getting her face pounded in by someone she obviously couldn't fight off...

Or you could just be a real person and try to stop it as it's happening.

I asked this on the other thread; are you a corporate lawyer?
Because you make about as much sense. Karma's a b----, dude,
I hope you don't wind up getting beat on while someone runs down the street to call 911.

I disagree. I think if more people were willing to step up and step in, there would be less people running around committing violence. Most of them do what they do because they dont expect ordinary people to try and stop them.

The only reason that guy was willing to hit that woman in public is because his history has told him that no one will do anything to stop him. If more people took a stand, the criminals would have to think twice when committing crimes. The wouldnt only have to be on the lookout for cops, but for all of us.
