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
How could this happen in Connecticut???? They are all so lovey dovey kum-ba-yah liberal utopia there. Right? right?
Yep more and more speech police.
"Maybe we should outlaw all ridicule"
But then DU weould be out of business.... :)
Use of disapproved terminology. Tsk, tsk. Throw the book at her.
"How could this happen in Connecticut????"
Sounds more like Sweden.
The "Self-Esteem" society would like just that. Except for the ridicule they use on those who oppose them.
Notice the last sentence where it says that this guy Byrd was involved in previous similar incidents.

Viewed in a certain light, Taco Bell food is an ethnic slur.
True...and all of those who are obsessed with mocking the President...how would they fill their days?
She needs to get a lawyer and sue for false arrest.
Why dont they just call it Thoughtcrime! The Ministry of Truth has to approve what we think and say.
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".Owl_Eagle
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
Truly, what ever has happened to Freedom of Speech?!
Anyone who goes to Taco Smell should be arrested!
Yep - the guy at the window has a history that is supposed to prclude him from being in the situation, yet the customer gets arrested...
