The wrath of the online video takes shape: a Maryland grand jury has indicted two teenagers on hate crime charges for last month's awful, sickening beating of Chrissy Polis, a transgender woman, in a god damn McDonald's. The beating was helpfully recorded by a heroic bystander, who did not step in to prevent Chrissy Polis from being beaten.
Teonna Monae Brown—the Baltimore woman charged last week for a beating up a transgender McDonald's patron while a passive crowd made videos—may have been a repeat offender. The Smoking Gun reports that the 18-year-old had previously been arrested for punching a mother of two in the face, then beating her with an umbrella, then trying to rip out her hair, while friends attacked the lady's daughters. Just as ogres like to hide under bridges and terrorize passing billygoats, violent jerks apparently like to hang out at McDonald's and beat the snot out of strangers.
The internet has fallen in love with another video of a fight in a fast-food restaurant, this one of a nasty assault at a Rosedale, Md. McDonald's that culminates in the victim having a seizure. It's pretty awful!
