You want fries with that? McDonald's employees are being "strip searched"? I thought you had it "your way" at Burger King.

I"m trying to decide whether this guy has a stupid alibi, or if he's just stupid. "You're a random obscene phone caller? And you want me to violate several state and federal laws just because you claim to be an officer? Sure!"

"Winsor said he thought he was cooperating with a police investigation of stolen money when he strip searched Stacy Carruthers, 19, and Sara Quick, 18, in June 1999 at the restaurant"

Sure he did . . .

"Sara Quick" is an action-movie/porno name if ever I heard one.

No offense to anyone working or who has worked at McDonald's, but they don't exactly hire the brightest eggs out of the bunch. =P

The teens testified that they also thought the man giving directions to Winsor over the phone was a detective.

The young women claimed Winsor touched them inappropriately while they were undressed.

I don't think the whole point of the story is that there was a supposed cop on the other end. Both the teens mentioned could easily be referred to as "women" since they're 18 and 19. They also thought it was a cop on the other end, and complied with the strip search. I think the biggest issue at hand is the inappropriate touching that may have occured.

And, really, touching a naked employee is just plain stupid.

HAVING naked employees in plain stupid. Unless you own a strip club I guess.

if that is widespread it would explain slow service on some occasions...might even lead to mistakes like ultra-hot pickles etc...

Life is its own little IQ test. i'd say the managers AND the girls have their scores in...
