Police guard the entrance of McDonald's corporate campus as about 2,000 fast-food workers and activists seeking higher wages march toward the Oak Brook, Ill., complex in May.

What is McDonald's afraid of?

2. Pathetic.

 

Then again I would have to be famished to eat one of their McBurgers. I like real food.

3. It looks like they have a sense of how angry they have made people.




And they need to protect themselves against their own malevolence.

5. This!

Look at them, dolled up in their riot gear. Had anyone done anything to warrant such a response? Or was this in an anticipation of people marching with signs? I hope many more write articles about what this means, because basically the police are now the security guards of the rich--paid for by your taxes. The 1% should have to pay for their own Pinkertons.

8. you might want to research that one

the military, the police, the national guard, the railroad police and the rest have always been for the 1%.

9. I know historically this has been the case

for example the Haymarket "Riots" in Chicago, but that doesn't make it right. WE pay them. The 1% try to pay as little as they can get away with.
