I agree. This mom did nothing wrong. She didn't tell McDonalds to fire the guy. She just wanted to let them know that they had a Level 3 Sex Offender working somewhere that 99% of the time there are children in there. I also agree that our country needs to wake up and stop protecting the gilty. He hasadmitted to raping 20 women. I know that I wouldn't feel safe in that McDonalds with my children. I would have done the same thing that this mom did. All the power to you.

Deb from Chelmsford, I agree with you 1000%. Lets not forget that sex offenders don't just go after after women, they also molest and manipulate and rape those of the same sex. He in NOT going to win his case against that woman. All she did was just repeat puplic info. Anyone can go on the registered sex offenders website. When my kids were in Middle School, the city I lived in would post registered sex offenders picture/name/address on the wall of the lobby of the school. The entire thing is an outrage. I bet the scumbag will get Police protection if he has to appear in court during this unheard of lawsuit.

Right. They're probably not qualified to be a Hiring Manager. It makes you wonder just who is working where.

As Deb said "this is unbelievable!
This man and many others will not be able to work in fast food restaurants! Where would you like them to work??
This man is surrounded by other workers, so I think it would be pretty hard for him to abuse anyone without someone noticing.
As for Mrs. Quinn, she could try doing what us responsible parents do, and monitor her children while dining at McDonald's.

It really should never have gotten to this point. He should have never been released from prison.

Sex offenders should be incarcerated for their entire lives or put to death. Bring back the death penalty and start by executing rapists and those who sexually abuse our children.

No second chances...their victims will never get one. And now this poor lady is being victimized by this sick bastard and his sleazy lawyer.

Personally, I think the best place for a sex offender is in a cold, dark dungeon. Lock these monsters away and throw out the key!

This seems like a pretty intense case. I think it would be a pretty touchy subject to defend somebody of sex crimes. I think the media already portrays thee people as guilty so that is why you need to find a really good lawyer. http://www.macneilfirm.com/internet-and-sex-o...
