Man skipped in line allegedly beats McDonald’s manager with bat | www.wftv.com.
Come for the workers’ compensation story, stay for the racist commentary.
Seems like some guy has been reading the Consumerist too much and decided that the executive e-mail carpet bomb was insufficient. So, he registered his complaint with management with a baseball bat. Legal stuff: while I know MA law better than FL, generally, he can collect workers’ comp, and file a third-party suit against the customer. Maybe a products liability claim against Louisville Slugger?? Oh, and the comp carrier would have subrogation rights in any third party recovery. No suit against McDonald’s or the co-worker, due to the century old trade-off.
Anyhow, I thought that would be the end of the story when I read it. Then, I read the commentary. Whole lotta racism.

FaceTheFacts420, Yep, it’s all black people. Unless you count the white guy who was caught on video ransacking a business, the white girl who robbed a store to get money for her drug habit, and the pot smoking inbred who spends his days on multiple websites posting “diversity” comments. Get your head out of your azz and get a job.

White men can’t jump. Negros can’t shoot.

Got to 365black.com and see who Mcdonalds is after. The dollar menu was invented for the blacks so they can feed their kids.Posted by billpierce at 1:16 p.m. Apr. 24, 2012
When will we stop pretending that these savage pavement apes are HUMANS just like us? Enough to make you want to go all Zimmerman!
Marc, I’m betting you’re glad you left Florida.
Blacks express their racism by robbing, raping, torturing, mutilating, murdering and lynching Whites. Whites express their racism by calling Blacks names.

Do some folks of all races act out violently in response to racism? Of course. No race is immune from stupidy, ignorance, or gross malfeasance. However, it is ill-suited of you to paint with such a broad brush.
Personally, I don’t care what race you are. If you are awesome, you are awesome. If you are a douchebag, you are a douchebag. If we divided the world into awesome/douchebag, instead of race, this would be a much better planet.
Subro and 3rd party recovery would be highly unlikely. The perpetrator probably doesn’t have any money, so a third party or subro case probably wouldn’t go anywhere. The only likely recovery would be for the the workers’ comp carrier to go for restitution via the criminal case. Even then, they’re probably looking at repayment via a parole officer at a rate of $x dollars per month for the next x number of years – hardly anything worth getting excited about. See that? it costs nothing to be a racist!
Agreed on recovery being unlikely, but sometimes even crazy has $.
