Subsequently another person within McDonalds physically assaulted me, while I was in McDonand's, eating my McDonand's Ranch Wrap that I had just purchased at this McDonald's

Where did this incident take place again? Burger King?

It looks like Perp 1 was the manager.


He's not a very good manager, I mean if I went to a McDonald's and everyone was wearing pieces of paper on their faces that had the word "perp" on them I'm pretty sure I would walk out.

FTFA: That a pioneer like Mann would be accosted - in Paris, of all places - is a travesty. That it would happen in that paragon of openness and light, McDonald's is an absolute shame.

Umm... what makes Paris special? They don't take shiat from customers in Paris. They don't care about your permission slips. Why I am supposed to be outraged over what some moron blogger thinks Paris is supposed to be like? There is no hero in this story, I wish the McDonalds and everyone in it could have been destroyed by some crazed french farming anarchist.

On one hand, I want to hate France. Because, well, just look at them.

On the other hand, I want to hate on this douchebag for recording people against their desire and having zero respect for privacy.

Little_Dictator: I have to confess confusion about the hating to be recorded in public thing. The video camera is merely a mechanical substitute for what our eyes have been doing for countless years. When I walk down the street and see you, I'm recording you. What I've seen of you and what you're doing is being stored and filed away in my brain. Admittedly, I cannot SHOW this to anyone as I can with a video, but I can certainly tell anyone and everyone what I saw and paint for them with words a picture just as descriptive as what you can see on a video or picture.


Yeah, but no.

but where else can you get a Mayonnaise Crab sandwich other than a McD's in China?
i took this in 2007, so maybe the menu changed.


It appears that your picture changed since 2007 to read "Crayfish" instead of "Crab". Weird huh?

Jument: I don't get it. Why did they do that? They must have had some reason that (at least in their minds) made sense at the time.


FTA: Apparently McDonald's employees in Paris don't like people taking pictures of their menus and this isn't the first time Parisian Friends-Of-Ronald attacked someone with a camera in their stores.

Maybe the French still believe that whole "taking your picture steals your soul" thing.

Agreed.

And furthermore, in France you cannot record private citizens going about their business without their express written consent, whether they are in a private place, such as Mcd's, or out in public.

The hell with him. If he feels he must record everything and everyone let him do it in countries like the UK or the US where citizens do not own the right to their own image.

The person in the center (Perpetrator 1) handed the materials I had given him to the person to my left (Perpetrator 2), while the three of them reviewed my doctor's letter and the documentation.
After all three of them reviewed this material, and deliberated on it for some time, Perpetrator 2 angrily crumpled and ripped up the letter from my doctor. My other documentation was also destroyed by Perpetrator 1.


/Having seen some of the mouth breathers that work at McDonalds, I'm shocked that they could recognize the alphabet, let alone read a note with (I'm sure) at least college level words and phrases on it.

Not only a McDonald's. One in France.

Way to break the stereotype of Americans staggering around Europe like zombies, moaning, "Big Mac... Parade magazine ...baseball scores... somebody help me..."
