    I am not condoning the actions of the McDonald's staff; however, it would seem to me that the Vet was going out of his way to create an issue.

    If you walk into a business establishment, and are refused service. The best response is not to insist you are served. What he should have done, was walked out of the established, and filed a complaint. Contact the local authorities, as it is against the law to discriminate. Contact the president as the Veteran did.

    This Veteran walked into this McDonalds on several occasions, and insisted on being served. I firmly believe he was going out of his way to come to the point of a lawsuit.

    This is a perfect example of how personal accountability no longer exists in todays society. This Veteran needs to accept his own actions in this mess.

    Now as for McDonalds... The manager should be fired, as he did not follow the laws. The staff that chased the Vet, and assaulted him should all be arrested and charged with assault.

    I am very disappointed in the MacDonold's franchise. I will not buy from them until this veteran's suit is settlted. As a veteran myself, I will support this vet and sacrifice my love for
    MacDonald's Burgers and Fry's

    I think there needs to be a payoff for islam for them to end the jihad. islamic culture is being increasingly marginalized and criticized by the west. they need a feeling of beimg in control of something & fundammentalism & terrorism give them that. i'm working on something else they could do

    Some people are afraid of dogs, even petrified. I know one lady who literally ran and locked herself in the bathroom just because a dog was brought into the office. Disabled Vets are not exempt from caring about the disabilities or fears of others.

    As a Disabled Veteran of 2 wars, a Boycott of All McDonalds world wide is in order. Vets who are blind have service dogs and since you can not see, how will they be treated? Close down Brooklyn McD's and their discriminating ways.
