Mcdonalds Brawl?
Comment by Shelby Letawski on 16th February 2012
I was there in the building the night of the Mcdonalds fight, that was NOT a consenual fight. There was a little 5 year old girl in the building at the counter, the two boys were moving all over the floor when HER father broke up the fight after everyone was screaming at them that there was a kid right there, they then continued to yell at eachother even when they were told to leave and that the police were called. One boy kept freaking out saying that "he stole my money" - I dont believe there is anything consenual about that. Take it outside or better yet dont do it at all.

I don't think the title of this article is very respectful. Possibly a title something to the effect of: "Domestic Violence fueled by Alcohol" might be more appropriate. To make a statment that men and women love to drink and fight is like spitting in the faces of the social problems of this community. Thats what they are; social problems, please use appropriate language in these reports. Thank you.

The Loss Prevention Officer of Save On Foods is doing a great job. He gets 1 or 2 a day. Keep it up. Might help lower some prices.
