Cracker Barrel bans hate crime attacker
So if you see his picture hanging up at your local Cracker Barrel, you know why. He's been 86'd nationwide.



http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/251/story/843181.html

ATLANTA -- The restaurant where a black female Army reservist was beaten by a white man in front of her 7-year-old daughter has banned the man from ever visiting any of its establishments again.

Cracker Barrel issued a statement on Thursday condemning the Sept. 9 incident against Tashawnea Hill, who police say was attacked outside the restaurant in Morrow by Troy D. West. Authorities say West became enraged when Hill told him to be careful after he nearly hit her daughter while opening the restaurant's door.

Cracker Barrel says its employees came to Hill's aid and called police after the incident. The restaurant is cooperating with authorities investigating the case and called the incident "reprehensible."

9. Is that a mullet?
Or just a guy with long hair who is definitely NOT a hippie?

I thought a mullet was the hairstyle with short hair on the sides, but long in back.



I'd hate to see mullets get an even worse rap than they already get.

He looks like one of those tired old guys who grow their hair long because they can't afford haircuts, forgetting that the hippies they so hated started the look..

15. I think it probably qualifies as a mullet...

he clearly gets the hair cut in front, so he ain't just growing his hair out. Also look like he has a body wave put in it.


example: canonical mullet

2. I'm surprised they didn't offer him a job.
Maybe he can be a greeter at Denny's.

8. Cracker Barrel : Crackers (apologies in advance) not wanted.
Of course this would have nothing to do with the "business".

Especially now when most eateries are suffering from lack of customers due to the economic depression.

Must keep up appearances ya know.

Anyway, glad they did it.
