Defend yourself in America? Not anymore.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A McDonald’s cashier jailed for beating two irate customers with a metal rod says he was only trying to defend himself. 

Rayon McIntosh was arrested Oct. 13 after a wild fight inside a McDonald’s in the Greenwich Village neighborhood in Manhattan. 

Video recorded by a customer showed two furious women vaulting a counter to attack McIntosh after some sort of dispute. More here:

Ok, let's see ... two furious women "vaulted the counter" to attack him.  He defended himself.  The lawyers of the women are going to say he "took it too far."

 Sorry, asshats, if you "vault a counter to attack" then you've put yourself at risk and have no one to blame but yourself.  Of course, that's probably too difficult for an idiot-lib to understand.  No worries though, the libs tell us they are MUCH better at understanding complexity than conservatives.  Yes, yes, it's true.  You believe "studies" don't you?  

Anyway, why do YOU think they arrested the victim instead of the attackers?  Do you see this happen all the time in America now?  I do.  And the victim will lose the lawsuit for the same reasons.

Of course, McIntosh has no money so guess who will pay.  That's right, McDonalds will pay, just as they always pay in these situations.  And the leftist predatory lawyers go unpunished.  Why?  Because the sheep think the evil rich corporation can easily afford to pay.  Never mind the evil rich corporation just passes the costs of litigation on to you in the form of higher prices.  This never occurs to an idiot lib.

The predatory lawyers have convinced idiot libs that corporations are paying so it's FREEEEEE ... yes, the favorite word of the idiot lib ... FREEEEEE.   That's right ... and never mind what is right and wrong ... stealing money from companies is always right ... you know ... since all big companies got their money illegitimately.

Have you ever noticed that a lib will  automatically and easily be convinced of something if it sounds counter intuitive but will question anything that would be accepted as common sense by the most mentally challenged person you know.

One day, my friends, this is going to swing 180 degrees and the people will see they've been duped.  And when the pendulum swings, and the people see who is truly attacking them, it is my fervent hope the people will "defend themselves."

I'm all for self-defense, however..

Seeing the video of this attack, I would say the dude was justified in using the metal bar to defend himself, but once the threat/danger passed, he should have stopped. He ended the attack, and had the women laid out on the floor. Then he went back and meted out some more justice while they were incapacitated. At that point, it stops being "defense", and begins being "assault".

The big loser is the taxpayer and the consumer. Dude was on parole, so he will go back to the "graybar hotel", funded by us. The two ladies will also spend time in the pokey for their attack. We also get to pay for their medical care. And of course McD's will get sued for employing a violent employee.

I watched the video too. From the video I could not determine whether "the threat/danger had passed." For all I know he told them to stop fighting and they were still trying to get up ... thus bringing more blows upon themselves.

I did see one employee kind of reach out to stop him from swinging once and he stopped at that time. You know how I know ... because I know that CBS, being only interested in the unvarnished truth, would show every single blow they could.

In any event, I still say they brought it upon themselves and unless I'm presented with some compelling evidence to the contrary I think they deserved what they got.

As a side note, I loved how the totally objective CBS jourrrrnalist presented the story. At the 1:15 mark he says one woman jumped the counter and one came around the end of the counter "and THAT'S when they were attacked." Yes, if you start kicking someone's ass and the guy fights back then he's "attacking you."

Also, the jourrrrrnalist keeps referring to the poor women who got "attacked" as "customers" instead of "shitstain perpetrators."
