Somebody deserves a break today

Posted By on Thu, Feb 19, 2009 at 10:26 AM

Check this week's Times for, in addition to Best Restaurant news, one of those outrage stories.

Remember the McDonald's worker, Nigel Haskett, who broke up a fight in a Little Rock McDonald's restaurant and was gravely wounded by gunshots for his trouble? The company is resisting payment of workers' comp benefits for his injuries. Not work related, they say.

The McDonald's surveillance film, provided to us by Haskett's attorney and part of the record in his workers comp claim (It's available on our video window) shows the heroic intervention in the assault of a customer inside the restaurant and the aftermath. The shooting, but not the injured employee's collapse, occurs off camera.
