WOMAN ARRESTED AFTER 'RACIST LANGUAGE' AT TACO BELL
Drudge Report ^ | February 3, 2006

Posted on 02/03/2006 11:07:42 AM PST by Irontank

A woman accused of using racial epithets while waiting for food at a Connecticut Taco Bell drive-through window was arrested Wednesday.

Jennifer Farrelly, 19, of East Windsor, has been charged with ridicule on account of race, creed or color and second-degree breach of peace. Farrelly's boyfriend, Eric Satterlee, 22, of Ashford, was charged with breach of peace in the incident.

On Dec. 18, Farrelly and Satterlee became frustrated by the slow service at the Taco Bell restaurant on Brookside Place, according to an arrest warrant. Farrelly banged on the drive-through window and called the Taco Bell attendant, Jamelle Byrd, a racial epithet, according to the warrant. Satterlee allegedly cursed and banged on the window.

Farrelly denied using racial epithets when she was interviewed by police, saying Byrd caused the dispute by ridiculing her for parking her car far away from the drive-through window, the warrant states. Byrd's supervisor told police that Byrd should not have been working the drive-through because he had gotten into a similar incident with another customer, the warrant states.

What about ridicule on account of weight?...or looks...or stature...or intelligence? Maybe we should outlaw all ridicule

The "Self-Esteem" society would like just that. Except for the ridicule they use on those who oppose them.

"WOMAN ARRESTED AFTER 'RACIST LANGUAGE' AT TACO BELL "

Viewed in a certain light, Taco Bell food is an ethnic slur.

In a similar expericence, I was thrown out of the 7-11 after venting my frustration at the clerk not being able to locate Camel Filters in a box, by calling him a "chalupa".
