White Thug Attacks Black Employee Working At McDonald’s And Her Manager Does Nothing

I'm grateful that Ms. James has entrusted me with her case; she's not alone in the fight anymore.

The St Petersburg City Council voted last month to ban plastic straws by 2020, beginning with a grace period in 2019 in which customers must specifically request plastic straws at city businesses. Customers must now ask for them, which didn't sit well with Taylor.

The man reached across the counter, toppling a completed order with fries, and grabbed the collar of a female employee's shirt. She responded with rapid fists of fire in self-defense.

Another customer took cell phone video of the fight, where Taylor is seen grabbing James first.

According to Biandudi, it wasn't as egregious as it looked. Taylor, refusing to believe Ms. James, proceeded to berate her, hurling vulgar and discriminatory names at her, while threatening physical violence in front of her colleagues and other customers.

It didn't take long for the impeachment calls to start coming from the newly sworn-in Democrats in the House of Representatives. There is no requirement whatsoever that a president be charged with or be convicted of a crime before Congress can impeach him.

"I don't know what was in his mind so but I just hope you get help that he needs", said Biandudi.

Before leaving the restaurant, St. Petersburg Police said, the man kicked another employee in the stomach as she stood near the exit. "One of the other, bigger employees threw him outside and closed the door".

The male employees were also called out for not immediately protecting James or trying to subdue Taylor.

"My mom and sis Kinie Biandudi recorded this today..."

When police arrived, she talked to officers and gave them the video of the incident.

The ugly incident was caught on video.

The perpetrator has been identified in local media reports as 40-year-old Daniel Taylor, a homeless man.

Police arrested Taylor after receiving a call about another incident nearby and recognized him from the video.

Records from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office show that Taylor is now held in the Pinellas County Jail on a $1,000 bond.

"Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers at our restaurants", McDonald's spokeswoman Keisha Boyd said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Biandudi said she is glad her video may have helped capture what transpired. He reportedly stated that he wanted her fired, but someone told him that he was going to jail instead.
