We all know that hate crimes are on the rise against the LGBT community and everyone of them are horrible but last Monday at a McDonald’s on Kenwood Avenue in Baltimore, MD. A transgender woman was savagely beaten by two girls while McDonald’s employee’s stood by doing almost nothing and videotaping it.
The video, which was uploaded to LiveLeak.com, shows two females kicking, punching and slapping a transgender female who at one point goes into seizures. McDonald’s employees could be seen watching the fight and adding their own color commentary to the shocking scene, but only once does a manager half-heartedly try to help the victim. One employee is even heard laughing. At first the attackers appear to walk away from the battered victim with one of them uttering “she’s bleeding, yo.” The pair, however, emerge for a brutal second round where they drag the victim by her hair across the restaurant.
Finally a customer, a brave lone elderly woman, attempts to rescue the victim but is pushed aside by the bashers and punched in the face.
The video ends as the suspects flee the restaurant after having been told by restaurant employees that the police were on their way. “Ya gotta go before the police come yo!” the worker is heard telling one of the girls.
The helpless victim is left on the floor where she is seen rolling around in convulsions as a result of what appears to be a seizure
Both assailants were later identified. Police said a 14-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile, while charges are still pending against an 18-year-old woman..
Five days later only AFTER the video of the beating of this poor women went viral did McDonalds release a statement:
“We are shocked by the video from a Baltimore franchised restaurant showing an assault. This incident is unacceptable, disturbing and troubling.
McDonald’s strives to be a safe, welcoming environment for everyone who visits. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of customers and employees in our restaurants. We are working with the franchisee and the local authorities to investigate this matter.”
This is one of the sickest, most depraved attacks I have ever seen. Why is it that we already know the predictable defense is going to be some bizarre sexualized allegation that the transgender woman thanks to the bogus bullshit and hate spread by so called “Christian’s”.
And what of the McDonald’s workers? How in the HELL do you stand there and watch something happen to someone, anyone like that let alone videotape it and then give advice to the two animals who committed the crime.
