Why can't they handle this the old-fashioned way - by beating the crap out of him at a routine traffic stop?

STFU or eat spit on your food. Seriously, knowingly tainting food should be punished.

Better yet, if you hate police, go farking free and get a writ that says you don't want legal protection. You got raped? You got robbed? You got attacked? Well that's your problem.

Tell that to the normal person who got their food spit in and didn't get the same results. Well that's your problem. You're not a cop.

Second rule of being a cop: When in uniform, don't eat at places where you can't see your food being prepared. Chipotle and Subway good. Denny's and McDonald's bad.

First rule: Don't treat people in a manner that would make them want to spit in your food.

Okaaaay Mr up a cops ass! I just think it's bullshiat that this was only prosecuted severely because of who the victim was and not because of what was done. Jackass.

Sounds fair enough to me. Saw far too many shenanigans at the pizza place I worked at in college. Even got fired for refusing to deliver tainted food.

People that screw with someone's food deserve a good ass-pounding. Actions have consequences. Probably have to learn that sooner or later...
 
2009-11-17 05:03:39 AM
A lot of people are completely missing the point of the article entirely. It's not about people harking in other's food and going unpunished. I don't think there's a poster who wants to eat some 16 year old's lung butter and see them skate on it. It's about unequal punishment.

Yep. I worked for many years in food service, many of them in management. Many more as a customer.

Serving food, I never messed with a customer's food. Ever. You just don't do that.

Welcome to America. Home of the free, sort of. Of course we do enjoy criminalizing whole classes of people overnight. And if a cop gets mad at you, well he pretty much has the right to fark your life over and get by with it. That is because too many people fear our police. They fear them because too much power is vested in them and too much latitude is given to them to carry out their duties. This severely lopsided punishment situation is just one small example of the abuses the police inflict on Americans every day. It's a shame, but that's just the way it is.

This is one of the reasons why I prefer restaurants with an open kitchen. It's much harder to mess with your food or cover up accidents.

Ever since I've been reading Fark I've been nervous to buy fast food. Apparently this spitting or blowing snot into your food is fairly common. I guess it's a hell of a kick for minimum wage making high school drop-outs. Really hilarious.

I shudder to think how many spit or snot burgers I have eaten without knowing it. And I'm not even a cop.

Gothnet: Sounds to me like this sort of things is all too common in the US

Mistreatment of food seems to be prevalent wherever there are assholes afoot. Although in London I suppose it's far more likely someone would spit in your pint.
 
2009-11-17 06:32:07 AM
So many people are creeped out by this potential. And today? When you can catch a lot of nasty? The idiot is not going to get a lot of support from a fast-food nation. The cop will. So go ahead, submittard, protest the trial. Asinine, my arse.

Pretty unlikely, though they could have gone out the back and spat in the
cask I guess.

RULE #1:

Dont Fark with people that handle your food.

Oh thats right, cops think their above the rules.

Sorry facists, not this one.

Epsilon: Ever since I've been reading Fark I've been nervous to buy fast food. Apparently this spitting or blowing snot into your food is fairly common.

It could be the crowd. This is Fark, after all. Wherever I eat, I tend to get great service*. Sometimes I get discounts or, once in a blue moon, even free meals.

Of course, I also move quickly, think considerately, speak clearly and act politely. If there's a line, I decide what to order and prep my wallet before I reach the register. If there's no one behind me, I exchange a few casual words. Little things can help a lot, like if you've been there a few times, try to figure out the order in which stuff is entered into the register.

*Except the local Steak & Shake. I have no idea what the fark is up with that place, but every time I go there it's a different issue. Sucky manager, I guess.
 
2009-11-17 06:48:12 AM
I did not RTFA but in a UK court this would still be given a higher punishment it it were Police rather than the public too.

Standard sentencing guidlines include an agrivating factor called "Victim serving the public" hence a higher punishment.

Also showing that level of disrespect for law enforcers will get the backs up most magistrates in the UK.

Don't let my crocodile tears splash on anyone's fast food. If some f*cker gets nailed for spitting on food, screw the shiat out of him. He's a piece of filth who obviously cannot live in polite society.

Should get the hero tag. All those douche bags that taint food should be afraid. This is why if my order is wrong, I send it back and when the replacement arrives, I refuse to eat it. If they screw it up they get to cook it twice and both go to waste. All because I expect them to mess with it.

Facepalm me all you want, some clown spits in my food and gets 10 years for it, I'm losing no sleep. Look at the guy. He's probably carrying all kind of diseases. If that were the case you could almost call it domestic terrorism. Sure 10 years may seem harsh, but if it keeps anyone else from doing it then it works.

Meh, if anyone has ever spit in my food in the US or abroad, I don't know about it.

The sickest I've ever gotten from food was during a "pint and a curry" night I went to in Hong Kong. I'm pretty sure the "kitchen" for the curry was an apartment down the hall and we were all eating in a makeshift common area. I'd blame the beer, but it was bottled.

Tyler also works sometimes as a banquet waiter at the luxurious Pressman Hotel. He was the guerrila terrorist of the food service industry. Apart frm seasoning the lobster bisque, he farted on the meringues, sneezed on the braised endive. Ans as for the cream of mushroom soup, well....
 
2009-11-17 07:26:21 AM
I think byandlarge burger flippers clock watch and think of beer or crack or bimbos or whatever comes at the end of their day. They have no interest in screwing with food unless it is some personal grudge. Far scarier for the average consumer is managers who have a vested interest in their profit margin and force employees to use up rotting post dated-products by smothering it under something so the customer will never know. Less blatant but no more acceptable.

FTFA:

Perez is charged with harassment of a public servant, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

In other words, it's OK for him to spit in your burger or mine, but if he spits in the burger of a "public servant" he's going down big time.

Could this be a case of government employees abusing their powers?
