Simply a video of a fellow walking around looking at the security measures at local fast food restaurants.

I remember when I was a kid, and the local bank would leave its safe open to show you how thick the door was, so you'd feel safe about leaving your money there. I used to walk over and check it out. Of course, I lived in a very boring city that wasn't blessed by diversity, which is our strength because we are a nation of immigrants going forward together for the children, and sustainable fish. Bullet-proof glass- this is much better- isn't it??
I wonder if the bullet proof glass was installed to protect the black customers from the white shooters ..../s
This is not new. I saw a lot of this when I lived in the area 25+ yrs. ago.
You convinced me at sustainable whales.
That White Castle had the same bullet proof plexiglass on the counter, and a plexiglass Lazy Susan to get your food.
You know, The Rev Doctor Professor Martin Luther the King had a dream- well, technically, his communist handler/speech writer Stanley Levison had a dream-- Stanley had a dream, and I have a dream as well. You and I have similar dreams.
just an observation...the door on the left is wood.
A couple of rounds properly placed and it would be open pretty quick.
Note to travelers...
Never stay in a motel where the clerk is behind
2” thick ballistic glass.
It’s just not a good idea.
And you would think that an employee would have to come out from behind the case to clean up feces or something in the lobby? So unless they’re wearing full-face Kevlar I’d be a little concerned if I worked there too. I wouldn’t fancy being on the menu
You bought back memories. I grew up in Detroit, and attended Cass Techinical, a high school in the downtown area.
Woodward Ave. was where I’d go with my family to see the Thanksgiving Day Parade. That parade still goes on today, bigger than ever.
If that is your first clue to the neighborhood you are in, you probably were not paying attention anyway. There should be a lot of signs long before you enter the motel office.
8 Mile and Woodward was the approximate location of the Michigan State Fair. Talk about a clash of cultures!
One sure fire way to measure how diverse a neighborhood is without seeing a single human, is if the kwickie marts have bullet proof glass
“I can probably go another half hour and twenty miles without a burger right now...”
It sounds like you and I were attending MSU at the same time.
Ordering a meal at Jim Dandy Fried Chicken on Vermont Ave. in South-Central Los Angeles is like doing business at some banks. The cashiers sit behind a heavy bullet-proof glass window, and you make your payment by placing it in a box that slides through a metal chute. The box comes back with your change and later with your order.
Nonetheless, the chicken is far better than what you get at KFC.
