Strip search via telephone?

Did they have the courtesy to ask if she wanted fries with that shake?

It's not that I'm unsympathetic to the victim(s), but really... you have to wonder about how gullible some people are.

Edit: It's weird... I discovered this thread while searching for a different thread that I had started. I had totally forgotten this one. The link to the original CNN article is no longer functioning. However, after seeing the video that Portis linked below, I feel complete disgust about the way the teenager was abused. I didn't want to bump this thread, but at the same time I regret that my joke above seems rather insensitive in retrospect. The adults in this video, especially the man, are appalling.

That's pretty sad that she's that stupid.....maybe she'll still be working at McDonalds in 50 years.

Apparently this has been going on for over 3 years at multiple locations -that's the really scary part!

She was just awarded a $6.1M judgment. I kind of doubt it.

Weird that she actually went through with it. #1. No real police presence. #2. It's McDonalds. .. . . #3. Creepy old guy. I'd be out the door so fast.
