“ McDonald’s customers shoot two employees over virus restrictions”

From WaPo Live Updates briefs:

“ The dining area at a McDonald’s in Oklahoma City had been closed because of safety precautions intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus. But when two customers entered Wednesday evening and were informed of the rules, things got physical.

“They were asked to leave, and they refused and produced a gun,” Lt. Michelle Henderson, a spokeswoman for the city’s police department, told NBC News.

The incident, which left two employees in the hospital and another injured, marks the latest in a growing trend of violent incidents directed at employees trying to enforce social distancing measures. Over the weekend, a Family Dollar security guard was killed in Flint, Mich., after telling a customer that her child had to wear a face mask to enter the store.

Restaurants in Oklahoma City were allowed to open for dine-in service at the start of this month, after a local shelter-in-place order expired on April 30. But many businesses, including the McDonald’s, were implementing voluntary measures to contain the virus, and additional social distancing requirements were still in place.

One of the two customers pulled out a 9mm pistol, authorities told Fox News affiliate KOKH, and fired three rounds that hit two employees, one in the upper arm, the other in the shoulder, according to KOCO, the local ABC news station.

During the scuffle, a female McDonald’s employee was assaulted by one of the customers, KOKH reported, and suffered injuries from hitting her head on furniture in the dining area.

Police said the two male victims, whose injuries were not considered to be life-threatening, were taken to a nearby hospital. Two of the three employees who suffered injuries are 17 years-old, according to NBC News.
At least one female suspect was taken into custody following the incident, authorities said.

The state of Oklahoma never issued formal restrictions on restaurants.”

In a better world, McDonalds would also possess the kind of corporate culture to put out an ad, asking for patrons to please not shoot their employees.

Mickey D’s is gonna come out of the pandemic just fine in the end, but I feel they could easily afford to annoy a large part of the populace that’s easily annoyed at being told “what to do.” I’m sick of these sorts of events being treated as isolated incidents.

This is what the second amendment was meant to do: Protect us from the tyranny of not being able to eat a Big Mac in the restaurant.

hmmm...also in Oklahoma:
"An Oklahoma city has reversed an emergency proclamation requiring shoppers to wear face masks due to threats of violence."

note to self: stay away from Oklahoma...apparently the mental age of the average adult is about 3 or 4...

I was in a crowded McDonalds once, and some ass started screaming at the server behind the counter “I JUST WANT A CHEESE SANDWICH!!

Fortunately, this was in the secure area of an airport, so this obnoxious nut didn’t have a gun.

Depends on the cultural imperative in the specific area in question. And that hasn't changed.. there will always be people who think that their wants and needs trump everyone else, even to others right to living.

Second Amendmenters sell themselves like they are the Minutemen on a Lexington bridge. Instead, we get hotheads at McDonalds.

When conservatives decided to treat fear of something as a threat from that thing.

After that conversion, no actual evidence is necessary for “belief” to take over.

I don't understand, if the dining area was closed, how did the two men get in?

If it was shift change, or if someone was just sloppy, a door may have been left unlocked. It's somewhat immaterial, given the outcome, dontchathink?

Or the dining area itself was closed, but people could go to the counter for takeout.

More from KOCO

”... police said a woman shot three employees because she was angry they had shut the dining room over the coronavirus.

An employee who was working at the time described the shooting to KOCO 5 News.

"I was outside taking food to a car parked … came back inside after that, I heard gunshots,” the employee said.

The suspect entered and started shooting, said the employee, who had returned from delivering the curbside order.

"The person shooting went straight into the kitchen,” the employee said.

When he came back, he said, “My kitchen partners were on the floor."

You are way off base here. It was about Chicken McNuggets.
