No indictment for McDonald's cashier

In a rare turn of common sense, a grand jury has declined to indict a McDonald's cashier who thumped criminals with a pipe.

Watch this video:

Here's what a CNN story had to say about it:
    The incident occurred at the restaurant on West 3rd Street in the early morning of October 12, and seemed to begin when the cashier questioned a $50 bill the women gave him, according to the video.

    The two women responded by hurling obscenities at McIntosh. One of them then appeared to reach over the counter and slap his face, the video showed.
My reaction, when I first saw the video some weeks ago: "Good, justice is done."

And now for the politics. Yes, everything is political. Liberals, since the attempted Communist revolution* of the 1960s-1970s, have decayed our society to the point where bad behavior is protected, even championed. C'mon, a cashier thinks he has been handed counterfeit money and questions the customers, and they respond by "hurling obscenities" and slapping his face. He administers a beatdown , and gets indicted for assault.

I'm not one of these people who wants to return to the 1950s. Oppression of minorities was (is) repugnant, and the so-called family values of Conservatives are too often a preachy veneer for poor behavior. No, what I'd like is a return to a well behaved society that values common sense more than "political correctness" (another term for modern Liberalism). I believe it's okay to punch or hit criminals when caught in the act, especially when they strike first. I'm glad to see a grand jury feels the same way.

There are two other facts revealed by the CNN story which need to be mentioned. One, the guy apparently hit the women 10 times in the head, continuing well after they were lying on the ground. Two, the women have been charged. Okay, so the guy went a little too far, but that doesn't change the fact that our society is out of control due to Liberalism and, perhaps, bad parenting.

* The Communist revolution has been mislabeled a "cultural revolution". We know well the motivations of the SDS and other "movements" of the late 1960s and 1970s. The following quotes are from a 2002 documentary film called "The Weather Underground". The quotes are just a small sliver of the available evidence for the Communist motivations of the "cultural revolutionaries".

"We wanted to become communist cadre, completely committed to the revolution."

--Mark Rudd, member of Weather Underground

"Toward the end of 1968 I had really decided that I was committed to being a part of what I thought was going to be a really serious and ongoing rebellion, upheaval, that had the potential of not just ending the (Vietnam) war but really overthrowing the capitalist system and put in its place something much more humane."

--Bill Ayers, member of Weather Underground and political adviser and friend to President Obama
