Video Shows Man Punching Girl In Line At McDonald's
KNBC Los Angeles ^ | October 1, 2008 | KNBC Story Monkey

Posted on 10/01/2008 9:41:16 AM PDT by South Hawthorne

LOS ANGELES -- Police are asking for the public's help to find the man who repeatedly punched a 16-year-old girl in the face at a McDonald's restaurant in South Los Angeles.

(VIDEO AT LINK)

The victim was attacked while in line at the McDonalds at 7123 Crenshaw Boulevard at about 10:15 a.m. on Sept. 14, 2008.

Police say the suspect and the teen got into an argument about who was first in line, and he struck her repeatedly in the face.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is urged to call detectives at the LAPD's 77th Street Division at 213-473-4861.

What kind of psycho would punch a sixteen year old girl in the face at 10:15 in the morning? You'd do that over an Egg McMuffin or a Sausage Breakfast Burrito?

Now if it was one in the afternoon, and you were really hungry for a Big Mac, because, you know, you were really drunk already, THAT I could understand.

What is society coming to?

This first caught my eye when I saw it as a blurb on a British site. The headline was "Man shown punching girl on line at Maccy D's".

It piqued my interest, quite frankly, because there's a lot of you that I'd really like to punch but, to date, there's no way to do it on line.

Ronald’s fault. McDonald’s advertised “you deserve a break today,” and the perp thought he was just doing what was expected. He’s depraved because he’s deprived.

Your comments really demonstrate a level of base vulgarity and crude ignorance.

Don't the know they are on VIDEO?

My sister had a store and had a major problem with shoplifting. She put in hidden cameras and caught a few, but I told her that she spent too much time prosecuting and not enough time in her store, it is preferable to PREVENT theft in the first place

She changed to VERY OBVIOUS and OVERTLY DISPLAYED cameras all over the store (some fake) and shoplifting reduced dramatically.

I’d like to know what she said to him that set him off. I’m not defending what he did, but I am sure there was some sort of wise ass remark that was made.

The man had two kids with him, one of which appeared to be of school age, so the same can be said of his kid(s) not being in school.

A psycho who knows that McDonald's stops serving breakfast at 10:30.

What’s a NC Governor’s race advertisement doing at the top of a Los Angeles TV station’s webpage?

Oh, as far as the video clip? Looks like he slipped on a discarded ketchup pack. Just an unfortunate deal. She really should have been more careful. /sarc

oooo ouch...

uh... my “evolved apes” comment was made before I had the information on the “race” of the person involved.

It was intended to convey that when we view each other as accidents of evolution, we don’t tend to treat each other very well.

Two step solution (to be undertaken by the victims father):

1) Find the perpetrator.

2) Kill the perpetrator.

If these simple steps are followed then the man will NEVER punch a girl in the face again.

I generally don’t condone grown men belting teenage girls, but these days some girls aren’t ladies, if you get my drift.

Depending upon the situation, a knuckle sandwich might have been better for her than a Big Mac.

Watch the video again and give us a hint of what kind of remark the girl could have made to cause a man with his kids to do a beat down on her in a restaurant, you must have some examples in mind.

She smacked him in the arm. Watch it again.

This doesn’t give him licence to punch her but it is a very valuable lesson in “What not to do”

Don’t get all smarmy with a guy who is bigger than you.

What also bothers me is that no one stepped up to pop HIM in the face. I saw at least 2 guys on that video who had an opportunity; unfortunately, we live in such a “me” society that no believes in chivalry or helping the innocent. He’s lucky he’s not in Arkansas—I carry, and he most certainly would’ve been under arrest.

Yeah...women should not provoke but a man should never hit a woman (girl). Maybe people were stunned but he didn’t just run out. Why were people just standing there?

He won. She left. Since there’s no audio, maybe she was threatning him or his kids? Either way, the little ho got what she had comin to her. No adult in their right mind would lash out like that unless the punkass teen caused it.

And the one that got punched also got up and walked away. He clearly didn't punch her repeatedly. McDonald's lost 2 customers. Shucks.

I was amazed by the number of onlookers who came to her rescue. That stud in the white t-shirt couldn't have squeezed himself any tighter into the corner.

I wonder how much of a beating that group would have tolerated before taking action?

But we'd be over run by loud mouth 16 year old girls.

Yeah, I'm assuming a lot.

He looks pretty big and had already demonstrated that he is prone to violent behavior. But if I were his size, I still don’t think I would’ve stepped up because I wouldn’t hit a man in front of his children. I certainly would’ve said something though and then, if he hit me, I would hit him back.

I would never do a beat down on a 16 year old boy, much less a girl, and especially in a restaurant, and with children present.

This needs some prison time, that man is clearly dangerous.

We do not have audio on this clip. Who knows what foulness was coming out of her mouth to prevoke a reaction like that.

It may well be the 16 yr. old said or did something to one of the man’s children and that set him off. I remember when my girls were little and some teenager made a wise ass remark to my then 8 yr. old girl, and I was ready to tear him a new one, but the policeman behind me got to him first and took the little snot off! The manager of the place gave them a big bowl of ice cream and they told their Mom that their Daddy had won it at the restaurant for them. They were impressed anyway! No man should ever hit a girl though, and I hope they catch him soon.
