There are a lot of wrongs on both sides here. First and foremost these women should not have jumped behind the counter at all to try to attack this guy over him checking to see if their $50 dollar bill was real. This probably caused to lose control defending himself and went overboard. He could of easily subdued these women and called for police. For him to use a lead pipe for two women was a bit extreme but what if they pulled a weapon on him? The truth of the matter is these women had no right to jump over the counter no matter the circumstance and brought this horrible situation on themselves.

McIntosh is on parole after serving 10 years for manslaughter for shooting and killing a 17-year-old classmate in 2000.
Darbeau’s mother said her daughter was unarmed and didn’t deserve the beating, some of which occurred while she was helpless on the floor.
“Our concern is the background checks they do at McDonald’s,” the mother said of McIntosh’s employment.
“I believe in second chances. But maybe they should not put people with violent backgrounds dealing with customers.”
A McDonald’s spokeswoman said its franchisee was fully cooperating with authorities. “We strive to ensure that our McDonald’s restaurants are safe and welcoming for our customers,” she said.
McIntosh is being held on an assault charge. Darbeau and Edwards were charged with menacing, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
“My daughter is just your average 24-year-old,” her mother said. “She’s fun-loving and full of life. We just want our daughter back the way she was.
“We don’t know if she will recover. We are just praying for her.”
