    I like the fact she said, I had a burger from the same batch... it was a little salty but I ate it anyway.

    Abuse

    Let me think about this....

    Abuse.

    Yeah, I'm sure

    Maybe Union City needs to upgrade its police force. He called in backup to arrest a McDonald's cook. What does he call in for real crimes, the National Guard?

    Something seems screwy about this.
    Likely Abuse, but I think there's something more to the story

    Lying

    I have a gut feeling that she's lying. She knew there was a cop in the drive-thru, and (perhaps at the urging of some other lowlifes at the restaurant) they decided to make the officer a "special" burger just to mess with him.

    But it was salt and pepper, not bleach or grill cleaner! So was the officer really put at risk? Was it reasonable for him to think his health was at risk from one bite of the sandwich? And if he ate more than one bite, there couldn't have been that much salt, right?

    I'm not sure what the right charge is, but she ought to be charged with something for contaminating a cop's food.

    Re: Lying

    Fixed that for you.

    Having worked in the food service industry in college, I have found myself amazed at the minority of people that would actually act on contaminating someone's food. The practice is so reprehensible.

    I was also amazed at the people that would be outright abusive to the staff that was going to prepare / handle their food.

    Here's a lesson for life: Be very nice to the people who handle your food.

    Definitely fired!!!! Send the burger out to the CSI Guys, if there are body fluids on it, then arrested.

    "Extra" salt and pepper did not put the cop at risk. Even though we all know it probably wasn't a mistake, it could have been.

    The cop should have went inside and told the manager and the culprit should have been fired if it was determined that it was done on purpose.

    So I'll have to call abuse on this one.

    Exactly. I think the person probobly deserves charges placed on her if she did it intentionally. That's what the judical system will decide. I am not so quick to say "abuse" at this point.

    And he may have called for back up so he could get there opinion if he should arrest her, or if he legally could. Not because he couldn't handle the situation.

    So you guys want it to be illegal to put too much salt on somebody's hamburger? What harm is done other than it not tasting so good? I don't think I'd want to work in the food industry with you guys in charge, one mistake and bam you are in jail. Even if it was intentional no harm was done. Besides how can we police thought. He should have complained and gotten her fired. I support a law when it comes to intentionally placing body fluids, chemicals, or other nasty things but not for too much seasoning.

    I guess some people like the idea of a "nanny state." :x

    Are you sure?

    Have you ever had beef flavored french fries?
    Most would say no. However if you have ever had McDonalds french fries the you have had beef flavored french fries.
