woman is body-slammed outside
Tennessee restaurant

Original Article

A viral video of a Popeyes employee body-slamming a woman outside a Tennessee restaurant has resulted in an arrest on Friday. Deriance Ra’Shaiel Hughes, 29, was charged with felony aggravated assault for the incident that stemmed from an altercation between the woman and employees inside the fast-food location. A lawyer representing the victim, Debra Staggs, 55, said she was trying to get a refund after reportedly being double-charged for food, reports local TV station WSMV.


I perceived this issue with Popeye's decades ago, never went into one for the obvious reason that I was always "out of uniform".

Angry black women, with a hair trigger to physical violence at the slightest issue, real or imagined.

Deriance Ra’Shaiel Hughes, pretty much says it all. You wonder how much of her going through life angry is because of her name. No doubt her name gets a lot of eye rolls and laughs, and has for her whole life.

This chicken sandwich ruckus is going to rival the great potato chip crisis of 1987.

I was thinking of trying one of the sandwiches but I'm not in as good a shape as I used to be , maybe I'll stay outside and hire a big bruiser to pick up a couple.

For some reason I have had bad experiences at Popeyes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered 5 piece chicken strips with two biscuits to go. I get home and there are four strips and one biscuit. It’s happened more than once. Now I open the box and make a count before I leave. Every time I’m watching who’s filling the order and not being racist at all in any way, it was teenage black girls reading the ticket and counting out the items in the box. Just sayin.

Worse than black on black is that Deriance is a man who horrifically attacked a woman. But how much you want to bet Deriance grew up without a father - or a father who respected his Deriance's mother? Or maybe just the name as DVC suggests.

Here in San Diego a few days ago, a female Hispanic employee was shot and killed (2 others shot but survived) by a black man who had his counterfeit $100 bill refused at a Church’s Chicken restaurant down near the US/Mexican border. My best advice is to stay away from chicken shops...geez. Unbelievable!

Let me see … I have a piece of chicken. I have a pan. I have a panorama of herbs and spices. I suspect there's some bread around here … yep, there it is. Nobody's lining up ARMED at my place for a chicken sandwich but it'll beat Popeyes by a country mile. Don't you "JOURNALISTS" have something better to do ?

#9: They do have positive role models all around them, if not at home. There are hundreds of good people to emulate, both black & white but then they wouldn't be 'down for the struggle'. We've all heard of black kids who are ridiculed for bringing schoolbooks home and acting 'white'.

I absolutely love Popeye's chicken. It is slightly better than Church's and far better than KFC. There are only two in my part of the state, so I dont get there often. The one I go to most is in a good neighborhood so not many Amish. Last time I went in the clerk announced they didnt have any chicken sandwiches. She looked like she was about to duck behind the counter. When I told her I didnt want one, she appeared relieved and got a lot smilier. Weird.

"These actions run completely contrary to our standards..." - Popeyes Spokesman Unfortunately these actions are completely in line with other standards, a built in contradiction, huh? I first ran across Popeye's in Houston, early 80's. Delicious. I then moved to St.Louis and, oh boy, Popeye's. They had the sourest, most unfriendly help I'd ever run across. By far. They would stand at the counter sideways so as not to look at you, each and every one scowling. It didn't take too many more visits to swear off Popeye's forever. Not sure how much of my experience had to do with St.Louis being the most racially divisive city I'd lived in.

Over the last couple of years my wife and I have often noticed poor and/or incompetent service in restaurants, stores and such. We refer to it as "the pains of full employment," and it's exactly so. Many of these employees are marginal. For most of them, one hopes (and expects) they'll learn the ropes.

I am deeply concerned that a project intending to collect plastic from the ocean’s surface, known as The Ocean Cleanup, will sweep up countless floating marine animals–collectively called the neuston–potentially putting whole ecosystems at risk. I’ve raised these concerns in an article for The Atlantic, and suggested potential changes to their system–like moving it closer to shore–that would protect the open ocean. On Thursday, The Ocean Cleanup published a blog post in reply to my concerns. I was incredibly hopeful up until this point that they would listen. After all, my efforts to raise awareness have been met with tremendous support from fellow scientists and the general public.

CNN host Chris Cuomo was mocked Thursday after his attempt to disprove President Trump’s theory about how phones work backfired on live television. David Holmes, the political counsel at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, testified during Thursday’s impeachment hearing that he overheard a would-be damming phone call between Trump and European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland. Holmes said he “could hear the president’s voice through the earpiece of the phone,” which was not on speakerphone. Trump, in real-time, tweeted his skepticism. “I have been watching people making phone calls my entire life. My hearing is, and has been, great. Never have I been watching a person making a call, which was not on speakerphone,

The Senate confirmed yet another of President Trump's picks to a federal circuit court seat Wednesday in a vote that tilts the balance of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to a GOP-appointed majority. The 11th Circuit is now the third court to undergo such a transformation during Trump's presidency. With an 80-15 vote, the Senate confirmed Barbara Lagoa to the seat formerly held by Judge Stanley Marcus, a Clinton appointee who sat on the appeals court that handles cases from Florida, Georgia and Alabama since 1997. Lagoa, the first Cuban-American woman confirmed to the 11th Circuit, tilts that court, which was previously split between six Republican appointees

Brandon Curtis of Concealed Nation writes: A shooting incident occurred in a Walmart parking lot this morning where a man and woman were shot and killed as they sat inside a vehicle. Immediately after, it is reported that an armed citizen, who was in the immediate area, drew his gun and put it to the head of the suspect and told him to stop shooting.

These million dollar babies compete with their Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) siblings whose capital cost is nearly half that of the “Green New Deal” machines. The SDMTS spokesman said that they wanted to work the bugs out as they approach the state-mandated regulation that such public transportation be “all green” by 2030. The virtue-signaling peeps in the green-painted electric bus were touting the less noise and benefits to the environment of their vehicles, compared to those pesky CNG-powered coaches.

Taylor, who testified before the House Intelligence Committee last Wednesday, said he had just learned about the July phone call this month. But Holmes’ timeline of events, according to a written statement from his closed-door interview, seems to depart from Taylor’s -- saying he notified Taylor of the call shortly after it happened.

In the left panel of that cartoon, Ohman portrayed then-governor Rick Perry saying, "Business is BOOMING in Texas!" while standing in front of a sign that says "Low Taxes!" and "Low Regs!" In the payoff panel to its right, we see a massive explosion representing the tragedy in West: "BOOM!" The image comes complete with a mushroom cloud.
