    The owner of a McDonald's restaurant in the Hyde Park neighborhood scrapped a policy Thursday that required Kenwood Academy High School students to sit in a separate area from other customers, after a student protesting the policy was handcuffed by Chicago police and taken back to campus.

"I paid for the food just like everyone else and I'm not leaving," Smith responded. The security guard then called Chicago...
