Below is the e-mail I sent to McDonald's in reference to the incident at the Greenwich Village McDonald's. I'm surprised they even bothered to send me their canned reply. They truly showed their love of the almighty dollar with their comments. Especially about their commitment to the safety of their customers. You notice there is no concern for their employees. I'm not going to miss them. Only thing I went for was their breakfasts and their fries. I'll learn to like someone else's.

Comment: I am appalled at the stance McDonald's is taking in the New York beating incident. Your franchise manger as well as the corporate representative threw the cashier under the bus. Trying to wash their hands of the situation. They show compassion for the 2 thugs that instigated the situation.
Let's look at what happened. The 2 women instigated the situation. They both verbally and physically assaulted the cashier. They leaped over the counter and pursued him. There is something known as disparity of force. 2 on 1 constitutes disparity. Females have proven themselves to be as, if not more vicious than men many times. While he may have over reacted, once they were down, he is not the one who instigated the attack. Women need to realize, if they are going to play a mans game, they need to be prepared to pay the mans price.
I for one, will no longer cross under the Golden Arches.
Thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald's.
The violence in this video is alarming and reprehensible. The franchisee of this restaurant has told us that the individual involved no longer works for her organization. We strive to ensure that our McDonald's restaurants are safe and welcoming for our customers. Our franchisee is fully cooperating with authorities in the investigation.
Again, thank you for contacting McDonald's. We hope to have the opportunity of serving you again soon under the Golden Arches.
