    Manager should have booted the customer out the door with a nice boot print on his butt.

    Obviously we don’t know much of the story...

    I agree, the gal was just getting warmed up. And that guy should never have grabbed her in the first place.

    Did I read that SHE was detained? Really?
    She was merely defending herself!!?

    I don’t understand why 75% of that article focuses on the race of the folks involved. Just looks to me like a piece of **** starting **** got hit and thankfully then arrested.

    Why is black lives matter involved in this one

    If the races had been switched, it wouldn't have been news. Media just LOVES stories like this.

    So if that was a black man grabbing a petite white girl (and the girl was just getting started on kicking the man’s butt) it wouldn’t make the news?

    Really?

    I’m still wondering why the girl seemed to be in trouble over that altercation. I think she did the right thing initially, but she should have backed off the minute she was out of the fray.

    I think there should be a rematch without the counter in the way. And the girl gets a stick.

    Maybe we should get some comments from the OP...

    You might want to read the article. She wasn't detained he was. He was homeless and was charged with several things. And no one seen what lead up to the grabbing. Always 2 sides to every story. The Manager doing what he did leads me to think that maybe something else happened before the video started. If he felt the guy was in the wrong I doubt he would have even looked at the receipt. Just another half story I think.

    Even if a mistake was made on a price or an item, and even if the counter gal got all smart mouth and stuff about it, the customer still grabbed her.

    That's called an assault. LE tends to take that pretty seriously.
