McDonald's beating: the Catch-22 of capturing an attack on tape

May 20, 2011

As appalling as the video of the McDonalds altercation in Rosedale may have been, I can't help but wonder, what would have happened if the person hadn't filmed Chrissy Lee Polis being assaulted?

The attention drawn to the incident has been largely due to the existence of that video. Yet the employee who taped the beating was fired. Isn't that a Catch-22?
