"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. McDonald's has announced a change to their long popular happy meal, and it's getting mixed reactions. People either love it or they hate it. But the reaction is interesting because of the people who love and hate. Now this has nothing to do with the actual meal itself. They've not permanently said you can only get apple slices and no French fries with your happy meal. This is about the toy. McDonald's has been getting flak for a long time about sustainability about wastefulness with their toys and all the plastic that's involved in all the pollution that causes. So they've announced they're going to segue to more sustainable materials by 2025. What's that mean? Less plastic toys, more paper stuff. If you have a little game built inside, it's not going to have plastic pieces. It will have paper pieces. They'll also start using things like trading cards. The people who are complaining, it's collectors, because paper toys aren't easy to collect because they get torn they get ruined they get wet, something happens to them. So the collectors, they like the plastic. It's not good for our environment, and now won't be good for collectors either.

How To Create a Stronger Mindset to Tackle Goals

"I definitely get into mindset itself and talking about stoicism the type of resilient thinking where the obstacle is the way instead of wishing for life without obstacles instead of wishing for short cut around the obstacles cherishing obstacle in knowing that is how we find our strength. That is how we get stronger. That's how we get better just like going to the gym. This is the jim for your brain. It's called alice. Static load in the body and the more resilient we are. The bigger are stress bucket. Were alice static. Load can be the more stress we can handle and the more stress we can handle mentally the more stress we can handle physically like pathogens and viruses and things like that and vice versa when we get better at physical stress doing cold plunges and hot saunas and doing fasting we get better at dealing with mental stress. So your body sees both The same those are alice static. Load another thing. That i would say there's really important is. If you're big. Goals are overwhelming. Start making small goals start raking them down into much simpler things start tracking things. Journaling things using an app. If you want using google key or evernote or something like that in just tracking things and tracking your small wins with your small goals. That's really important at the big old just seemed too big and break it down. Start making it simple. If your goal is for example to lose fifty. Which i don't think is a good good goal. I think a good goal is to fit into a certain dress or you know. Feel great about your body. Or whatever like i think a shift like. That's more important than getting caught up in a number but to i think breaking it down into smaller things you know like what's the dress size you want to get into for you know x weeks like those kinds of things like and or lifting a certain amount of weight by x. weeks You know being able to walk two miles by x.

"I heard about this. I know it was a media sensation and like the late mid nineties. Ninety six the verdict came down in ninety four. Yeah and i know that this was an event that was directly. Parodied on seinfeld. Which i think is kind of a litmus test for cultural relevance and the seinfeld version is that kramer is going to a movie theater and he's trying to smuggle in a cafe lot hey and he gospels it. Somehow it burns his leg and he's like i'm going to sue the coffee company because the coffee was too hot and like what a ridiculous thing to sue anyone for making hot coffee hot. It's supposed to be hot. Her and all of this is based on a case. Where there is this. Elderly woman named florence. Liebeck it's actually stella liebeck. Stella why do i think her name's florence. Is there a florence liebeck. I think you're thinking of florence in the coffee machine alright. Stella that's great. What a great name. Who went to mcdonald's drive-thru and she ordered a hot coffee and it spilled somehow and she got burns from the coffee and she sued mcdonalds and the way the story went was mcdonald's had given her like thirty trillion dollars. And there was this sense of lake will what next like. Why doesn't everyone sue every large corporation for a lot of money for a product behaving in a predictable way. Yeah i mean the term that you heard a lot at the time was jackpot justice. Was this idea that people are doing these completely normal things like we've all spilled coffee on ourselves and blowing them up into these like. Oh my life was never the same. After i spilled up. You know luke warm cup of coffee on myself. It's the juxtaposition between this completely. Every day normal thing that happens to everybody and the massive settlement that this woman got by suing mcdonalds and then also i feel like maybe this isn't true but my understanding was that it was because of this like whenever you get a beverage from anywhere still today.

Does that ever like enter into your consideration. It's a consideration. You should take about anything produced by any company. That's run for profit. Which is everything you know Basically every need in american society need is tempered by the knowledge that there are people out there who are paid very large salaries to sell it to you. This is the case for everything. We'd everything we eat every time you run down main street or in my case i guess You know the boulevards in los angeles You're seeing the protracted efforts of a billion dollar industry to make sure you want things they're selling could that be the case for covert undeniably.

"In the middle of all the challenges with covert in afghanistan and we still have police under attack. I had a chance to catch up with the great heather mcdonald. Heather mcdonald is the author of the war on cops great political voice great commentator on law enforcement. Here's what we talked about. Recently heather mcdonald studies data. And i wanna talk about the data that refused the narrative that blacks unarmed black. Americans are in peril of being gunned. Down by a by america's police officers every day. I have callers who've told me that i had listeners. Who say what. What does the data say about that narrative. It's preposterous narratives. That percentage of blacks allegedly unarmed blacks. Who were killed by. The cops is a minute fraction. it's about point one. two point. Two percent of all blacks killed of homicide each year last year and and i say allegedly unarmed because this data comes from the washington post database of fatal police killings. The washington post defines unarmed. As broadly as possible to try and get as many people into that category as possible. So if you're trying to grab an officer's gun you're unarmed. If you're if you're fleeing in a stolen car with a loaded semi audit the seat next to you. You're armed Last year there were eighteen on allegedly unarmed blacks kills and again a lot of these people were still posing threat to the officer eighteen. We don't know yet. The final death toll from twenty twenty. Which was the largest one year increase in homicide in recorded history. Thanks to officers backing off. Thanks to this phony narrative about policing those eighteen allegedly unarmed black victims of police killings represent likely about one percent of what we're we're likely to see about ten thousand bucks killed last year more than all whites and hispanics

Ted Lasso: Lessons on Leadership From a Fictional Character

"I for anyone who has the unfortunate fate of not having watched head lasso yet. What are you even doing people. How would you describe the character of ted lasso. So i think ted so is it shouldn't be a serious character right. This is a college football coach from kansas. Who is going over to coach. Manage in the english premier league. The whole setup feels absurd. Which i think is why the character seems to work so well because this guy is a. He's folksy. he has these things he will say. I mean come on. Sam was more open than the jar peanut butter on my kitchen counter. That's right y'all don't know. I like to keep the peanut butter open. That way whenever i walk back and just stick my finger and yet he has this inner goodness that i think when when he comes across people that they seem to react to you coaching football make. You are a legend for doing something. So i mean it's meno murdy well you know. I've heard that tune before. But here i am still dancing. Ted last. So is the quintessential mid western kindness guy. You know a guy who wants to do well in the world treat other people the right way and just kind of live life with optimism and kindness and all those like grape characteristics that we'd all like to have. Yeah i think it really is his relentless optimism. That wins you over in the show. Is there a particular scene in the series that you think really captures that element of his personality. You know i was thinking about this. In the first episode. He's gone over to england. He's been introduced to the media. He talks to the team. And everybody's obviously it's not going well and then him and coach beard kind of redecorate the office. They put up the john wooden pyramid of success. They put up. All these american touchstones like muhammad ali poster in the miracle on ice poster all in the office. And then roy kent the kind of the you know. The quintessential english footballer. He comes in the office and he calls him ronald mcdonald and i think he uses an expletive and then he leaves the office and ten lasso goes he thinks may now wait. We win them over if he thinks he's mad. Now wait until we win them over.

No signs all the way around on the side on the building. One of our. Dj's win in their for lunch on wednesday and they told them we're going out of business so i guess that location to franchisee. Just i don't get it because they're always busy. Always maybe they had issues with staffing right now or something. They're they're just trying to thin out. The i feel like we need to call him and our boss paul because he went there every single day not even listed no. I think paul's leaves. And why it closed down paulie there so much pre pandemic now. That paul's work from home a lot. The place had to close down. Is he aware though that he's not gonna be able to walk next door and get his his stuff. I don't know and you know what's funny. I did my annual. I did my annual gift to him. My annual gift to him. As i get him a a A a large mcdonald's gift card and then see how fast paul can actually finished an email. Say no good. Yeah but i got him. I got him a gift because great. Now we all gotta get well. I did it. Because he's the guy that got us. A contract has been fought his his not the phones. He's not even answering this. Got you really hold on. She's waving etched facetime him. Paul corvino who by the way. He should on our allies.

The worst day this might be worse than than the how the the lockdowns have have affected you paul corvino. Okay the mcdonald's next to the radio station closed its doors and closed down. We're going to have to move. I think that that's that's the omen by the way we've been talking about that. Haven't we about moving i think. Now it's official. I think it is time to move because mcdonald's is no longer there. We're going to have to actually make a chart of all the staff at the building who's going to have to take turns bringing in mcdonalds from their neighborhood to paul everyday so like i'll take mondays and wednesdays and we all like take shifts to see who can help keep his habit alive and it's difficult. I only pass about eleven or twelve on the way working morning. I know but this one was right outside to walk. I get that someday. For for ju it was right outside your window and it got to a point where you went there so often during the day that your wonderful assistant julie would have to.

"You know what one thing that you know. I sit there. And i think to myself as a very brave person which. I'm not very brave. That i did yesterday. That might be the dumbest thing ever a friend of mine said. Hey i want to get together with you before the holidays and i said you know what. Don't worry everything's okay. And then they're like no no no really. I really wanna do it. I think it's because i'm going to have that surgery after the first of the year and stuff so they wanted to make sure that we were able to see each other so we decided that we were going to go have lunch together. Now you say we're can you go have lunch because you were here in in michigan in our restaurants aren't open like they. Are you know for our folks in toledo. His bright idea was to sit outside on a patio. When it was thirty. Five degrees in there was snow outside. Was it a heated patio or no off was it was literally the patio outside of a smash burger and we're sitting there on metal of like outdoor chairs. Just clean snow off of so that we could sit there and eat together. And i realized how horrible this is right now for for restaurant people. Because i don't even think heated lamps would have made it more comfortable. And i don't get the whole you know. People that are the restaurants that are are still trying to stay open. Patio is and the people that will sit there. Like you are brave. Because be done if they got the heat heaters in the right spot in the heat lamps overhead considering making a reservatn romero and Jeff are sales guy. Was there just this weekend. He said it was too hot and he says cold as it was because it was too hot because they'd so many overhead and then the lamp and the portable heaters needs. It was great and it made me realize because i don't want to sit in winter. Jackets need a fancy meal. But i sat wednesday. I went to the got out therapy. And i saw when i was going. I saw the igloos at big laura in and so i said you know what i'd like. Check one hundred. I haven't had a beer in since they closed four weeks ago so called up my photographer buddy said hey when i get out of my appointment you wanna meet up a big lords. I went on. Their website is only five bucks to reserve their little league. Lose out on the patio and it was warm. It was nice now that was but on show a little sunnier. But but i'm seeing people are doing this like we did it in outside of a smash burger. Which wasn't like there wasn't a official. Yeah i'm seeing people that are eating outside at restaurants at the mall. What's the state place in the capital grill at the somerset. People are literally sitting there. And i watched this couple of sitting there out outside. This was last week when the temperature wasn't as cold as it is.

I'm i want to support these restaurants so badly and i'm so sick of getting takeout in my own living room so like how can we out somewhere and and safely you know still eat a meal but still supports the thing.

A few days after Kate.

And McDonald says it regularly meets and talks openly with members of the Black McDonald's operators association. The idea of being a family is still very very central at McDonald's in so many things that you read internal documents. They refer to each other as a family, so I think that some franchisees do not want to see McDonald's negative press over things like this, because even if they feel like they're being treated unfairly.

"In McDonald's history. McDonald's executive sat across the table from the members of operation. Black Unity Near. Stoke stood by to facilitate. Facilitate people were armed. People brought guns to this meeting in case got to explosives, but this point Cleveland's white franchise owners wanted out their businesses were being crushed by the boycott, and they were done with being pulled into contentious civil rights disputes for McDonald's. However, it wasn't so easy. The company knew how it would look to give in to threats and intimidation and someone like a hill in particular, plus he was making demands that could set a precedent for McDonald's to. To have a role in local communities that it just didn't one operation black unity demands. We'd get to pick the FRANCHISEES. We get a fee for our I. Guess Search Firm Capacities. We get a pool. We get a card. We get money invested in a community trust for us a McDonald's. No, no, no on every point there stokes was caught in the middle, his white Democratic primary opponent was using the protest as a scare tactic asking what local business would be. Be Next to fall victim to the threats of black activism, if stokes wanted to live up to his promise of unity and get reelected. He had to get this settled. Meanwhile, members of Operation Black Unity turned on Hill, accusing him of extortion he'll lost control of the movement he had started now. All of this posturing and back, and forth is happening in the press as well as the national newspapers pick up the strange story of McDonald's boycott and Carl Stokes McDonald's. McDonald's was keeping an option warm. This entire time turns out behind the scenes. McDonald's and mayor stokes had been in talks with another community group one that would take over the restaurants that white franchise owners were giving up and that this group would be responsible for any community development projects like swimming pools parks that meant McDonald's was off the hook. Oh and it never have to negotiate with David Hill ever again. The day before mayor stokes primary election. He arranged in. In. Agreement with McDonald's and operation black unity to end the boycott stokes was reelected, and while hill did not get control of the restaurants. They were being run by members of the black community. I guess the question is. How do we measure success? In this situation? The boycott did expose black economic power in Cleveland in a time where African Americans were for the majority living in poverty. It did show that there was a difference having a black mayor, even though it. It did not solve all the problems. The Cleveland Boycott was covered in papers across the country, and the eventual agreement demonstrated to activate that local black communities could have a voice in negotiating with an international corporation about how it operates in their neighborhoods. Even for that brief moment. They really did impact. McDonald's and so I think the takeaway from those experiences were then deployed in different cities as they were challenging. What did it mean for McDonald's to be such a presence? In the years after Cleveland more and more black entrepreneurs around the country took over existing McDonald's and open new ones for fifty years. They've tested. If black capitalism can improve the lives of black, Americans in their communities wasn't enough. That's when we come back. We're back. In nineteen, sixty nine Cleveland's black entrepreneurs got what they wanted. Ownership of local McDonald's franchises and marked a change in how the company would operate in black communities for years to come. Black capitalist hoped that McDonald's restaurants could help franchisees in several ways i. they'd let them become business owners next with the support of McDonald's businesses would become profitable, and then with that money, black franchisees could invest in their communities and thereby help other black people. It hasn't been that simple from your reporting and talking to people. How are black franchisees feeling about McDonald's corporate? I spoke with a lot of former franchisees. Who? Especially have very mixed and more negative feelings where they feel like they've been forced out. Basically that McDonald's put them in a situation where they could not win, they could not continue to save the company. K Taylor is a senior correspondent covering restaurants and retail for business insider. At the end of last year, she reported that many black franchisees were making significantly less than their white counterparts. She also found that in the last few years, the number of black-owned McDonald's has been falling out of the seventeen hundred people who own McDonald's restaurants fewer than two, hundred or black. That's down from over three hundred in two thousand seven people have been aware of. Of these issues for decades, and from Dr it kind of goes, through ebbs and flows where they feel that McDonald's is listening to them making some changes and then periods where they feel like McDonald's is ignoring the concerns. This goes all the way back to the nineteen seventies and in response, lack franchisees created a group to advocate on their behalf. The National Black McDonald's operators association over the years. Some of them have accused McDonald's of discrimination. More recently black franchisees have told Kate that they've faced obstacles on several fronts. I mean restaurants were not as financially accessible as they'd hoped for more than a million dollars to just open one location, so you have to be a millionaire several times over basically you are going to thrive in the McDonald's system at this point. Add to that in recent years. McDonald's corporate has demanded expensive tech upgrades and move towards a model where fewer franchisees own more restaurants. That's made it even harder for black. Americans to buy into the McDonald's system. Because African Americans in this country are less likely to have the generational wealth. They just aren't in the same position to. Invest millions of dollars as frequently as some white Franchisees have been in two thousand seventeen, the Federal Reserve released a report showing that on average black families net worth is fifteen percents that families. So getting a franchise has become more challenging, and that brings us to the second point that these restaurants would make black business owners money. Kate found that it's been difficult for them to make a prophet. Right McDonald's several told her that the company LTD which ones they're allowed to run and where they could open new restaurants. If you're in an area that is lower income, it can cost a lot more for security cost. So. That's something where you're paying more for security. You're paying more for insurance because of concerns related to that, and that just cuts into the bottom line. Current and former black franchisees told Kate Dave attempted to run restaurants in more affluent areas. One told her that working a corporate liaison he tried to help. A fellow Black Franchisee opened another store nearby. McDonald's basically told both franchisees that their new stories available. It just wasn't a possibility at that point. And then literally the same week McDonald's announced that there was going to be a white franchisee opening a store on the same street that the black Franchisee e had been trying to open the location on. CATES said that McDonald's declined to comment on this specific example being excluded from owning restaurants in higher income neighborhoods has financially hurt black franchisees to sum it up in the most basic way, black franchisees we're making about sixty eight thousand dollars less per store a month than the overall total or average franchisees overall that gap is more than double from what it was and twenty twelve win. Black Franchisees have spoken out about their concerns. Some told Kate. They've noticed strange corporate behavior like McDonald's employees showing up for unplanned inspections late on a Friday night once even Christmas Eve or getting written up for minor infractions like a torn piece of wallpaper and that could. Could lead to franchisees being penalized financially, or it could lead to them getting their stories takeaway mixed in with all of this fears that if black franchise owners are struggling financially, maybe even selling their restaurants, they won't invest in their local communities. Remember.

"Radio, telling it like it was black. People never had a chance to have anybody that they could rely on and listen to every day, and who could entertain them every day. We were there there informers they believed in us. As a famous radio analyst and religious leader Ernest Hilliard was well known in Cleveland's black neighborhoods and nineteen sixty-nine, he decided he wanted to take on a new role as a McDonald's franchise owner that would mean he would own and operate a McDonald's restaurant. He'd have to follow the rules set by the corporation, and share some of his prophets, but for the most heat had another title to his resume small business owner. Went and he did some work at McDonald's. And then there was a very intensive interview, and people were process with a regional manager, and it seems as if he had done some of this process and then was told that his work. McDonald's wouldn't quite qualify and that he actually had to go to hamburger university in the Chicago area, and so it seems as if he might have gotten some misinformation or may have as he. was led down the wrong path.

"Radio, telling it like it was black. People never had a chance to have anybody that they could rely on and listen to every day, and who could entertain them every day. We were there there informers they believed in us. As a famous radio analyst and religious leader Ernest Hilliard was well known in Cleveland's black neighborhoods and nineteen sixty-nine, he decided he wanted to take on a new role as a McDonald's franchise owner that would mean he would own and operate a McDonald's restaurant. He'd have to follow the rules set by the corporation, and share some of his prophets, but for the most heat had another title to his resume small business owner. Went and he did some work at McDonald's. And then there was a very intensive interview, and people were process with a regional manager, and it seems as if he had done some of this process and then was told that his work. McDonald's wouldn't quite qualify and that he actually had to go to hamburger university in the Chicago area, and so it seems as if he might have gotten some misinformation or may have as he. was led down the wrong path. Does he think he was discriminated against? Definitely, so it was a sense that there was racial discrimination happening because the existing franchise owners didn't want out.

"It's like any other McDonald's spot across the country. There's a big building Golden Arches, and an American flag when Marsha chatwin began researching her book on McDonald's and Black America. She made a point to visit this one. One of the first things I saw was a flyer announcing the winner of a McDonald's worker scholarship this. This restaurant is a pillar in the community. It sponsors and mentoring program and works with boys and girls clubs, the local public library sports, programs and the zoo. It's a place where people gather in -tunities like Ferguson where you have a lot of for residents. Sometimes. McDonald's where people use the Internet so. It's the Wi Fi. It's where you can get the air conditioning. And in two thousand fourteen, this McDonald's was also in the eye of the storm. When Ferguson erupted in protests over the shooting of Michael Brown there is growing outrage tonight. After an unarmed African American teenager was shot and killed by police in the Saint, Louis suburb of Ferguson Missouri. If you think about all of the international activists communities that showed up at Ferguson Missouri they come to America and the place that is open and lively is the McDonald's people took refuge in that. McDonald's from the unrest surrounding them fires, gunshots, rubber, bullets and tear-gas styles. The windows broken into again. We saw a couple of other stores. Neighbors went there to watch the results of Michael Brown's autopsy. Protests are still milk from the fridge to. To treat their eyes after being teargassed, it was one of the few businesses that had the financial capacity to remain open during the uprisings and bounce back after it was targeted and I. Don't think it is a coincidence that it is owned and operated by African. American, that McDonald's was more than just a fast food restaurant. When reporters left, and people turn their attention away from Ferguson. It was and still. Is there serving its community? Chaos brought McDonald's into black communities, and it is in chaos that we are able to see the ways that the McDonald's in the black community Serbs far more purposes than giving people a place to eat. From business insider, this is brought to you by. Brands you know stories you don't I'm Charlie Herman McDonald's big MAC MAC only at. McDonald's is the largest restaurant company in the world it's business is served burgers and fries to millions of people, but what happens when a brand like McDonald's finds itself in the middle of a struggle over civil rights today across the country Americans are demanding solutions, racial injustice and inequality. Many corporations are trying to respond fifty years ago. Residents of Cleveland Ohio made similar demands and went head to head with McDonald's over its role in black communities today, the fight for the right to franchise could the Golden Arches be a golden ticket to economic equality. Stay with us. What are some of your earliest memories about McDonald's? Eight so much McDonald's as a kid I know. The end is a young adult I should say did to. Marsha chat and I grew up in the nineteen eighties her in Chicago me in Oakland. We both have these shared memories of the McDonald's Menus of our youth. They had hot mustard, which was way too sophisticated for my kid Palette. There was like a barbecue on I. Remember the McLean Deluxe came out, and it was supposed to be a lower fat burger. Right as a kid, who was a place for birthday, parties and cheap meals with friends I remember it's where I surprised my mom after I got my braces off after having him for nearly four long years of high school. Terrible in Chicago, Chandler Remembers One McDonald's downtown were all the decor was inspired by African American history. They would have historical portrait's or they would make sure that the. The liners on the trays had history facts I knew the black McDonald's operators who gave me awards for Black History? Month competitions that I was in I, remember hearing the operators on the local black radio stations talking about. Make sure you fill out your son says make sure you fell into vote, so these were individuals who were clearly identifiable as people who were doing more than just business. Chat is now professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University but those early memory stayed with her when she went on to write a book about how she puts it. McDonald's became black. It's called franchise. The Golden Arches Black America. She says that relationship really started during the civil rights movement and one year in particular, nineteen, sixty eight Martin. Luther King was shot and was killed tonight. After King's assassination, there were uprisings and protests in cities across the nation on rest in Kansas City. Missouri April the weekend at Ryan's on Tuesday. On Wednesday on Thursday on Friday more, the same communities were devastated by these protests and in the aftermath. McDonald's found it had a problem. Many white people had fled the city for the suburbs and a lot of McDonald's restaurants in urban areas were being abandoned by the white owners and employees. At the time, there had never been black McDonald's Franchisee. McDonald saw this as an opportunity to maintain their businesses in neighborhoods that were case in two were in African American communities by bringing in franchise owners, and allowing those right franchise owners business in the suburbs plus McDonald's the setup might help protect those restaurants. If there is any racial unrest in the future, the owner had an expectation plow upon him that he would keep relations good, and he would make people feel like that. McDonald's belong to them but in Cleveland. CLEVELAND, Ohio McDonald's face to more complicated situation it was the first major city in the country to have a black mayor. A man named Carl stokes here. He is in a video produced by the local news site. CLEVELAND DOT COM I. wanted to be mayor because I felt I understood some of the problems that afflict us in the central cities for many people in Cleveland White and black mayor. STOKES represented unity in an interview with a local TV anchor he. He knew the challenges that came with that. Growth Reaction Again. The in Brevard of minority groups articulated black minority to. Achieve early expression through participation in society. Compound Bhai Great. After King's death, mayor stokes and managed to prevent protests and Cleveland's black community, but that meant there wasn't white flight like in other cities, if the king uprisings were the impetus for a lot of white franchisees to leave black neighborhoods that didn't happen in Cleveland, and that mid McDonald's restaurants in the city's black neighborhoods were still owned and operated by white people that didn't sit well with some local black leaders in new someone getting rich, and they see that those dollars are being reinvested in their everyday lives in other cities block. Franchisee became local leaders, and some of the restaurants prophets towards community development. So in Cleveland one man started demanding the same opportunity. His name was honest, hilliard so earnest. Was a interesting guy. He had appeared on religious radio as Crawford Thomas. Profit Frank, Thomas of the first spiritual Christian Church of America Hilliard show aired on a station that pioneered radio which had already become an important force in black communities John. Gibson was a DJ in those days. He put it this way in an interview for Smithsonian Series Black.

John Elway Shun both Joanne. Yang fled to the United States in two thousand to avoid prison but the cult itself was still thriving in China with millions of followers across the country. Since two thousand eastern lightning had been connected to a number of crimes and suspicious activity most recently two years before in two thousand twelve members staged massive demonstrations across the country to spread false predictions of the end of the world years before that the group was linked to a series of violent incidents arson battery kidnapping and extortion. But the savage unprovoked killing of a stranger seemed unheard of even for eastern lightning. China was outraged by whoosh `alliance murder soon shaky cell phone recordings of the attack taken by other McDonald's patrons circulated across the Internet though the violence itself isn't visible the sound of Wu's screams and the image of her attackers dipping. In and out of frame as they delivered each blow was disturbing and the people of China were determined to punish those responsible. Not long after patriarch. John Lee Dong who dealt the killing blows and his eldest daughter. Jong Fawn who started the attack were interviewed on national television. When asked why he murdered Wu John Lee. Dong simply replied. I beat her with all my might and stamped on her. To she was a demon. We had to destroy her. John Fong was equally callous as they stood before judges at their subsequent trial. She often smiled. Father and daughter were each sentenced to death and executed. They maintain their belief that the killing was righteous to the end John. Lee Don claimed we are not afraid of the law. We have faith in God but while the Jong sacrifice their lives to carry out violence they believed was for the sake of their Jesus. They'd ultimately persecute their fellow believers even further the McDonalds murder pulled. The Church of Almighty God back under media scrutiny and as a result government crackdowns intensified after. Wu's murder Chinese authorities arrested more than one thousand members of eastern lightning and considering China's notoriously aggressive approach to religious dissidents. Their punishment was most likely brutal. After the fact even eastern lightning denied the event entirely refusing to associate self with the Jong's crimes in an official statement about the McDonalds murder. They said this case itself is full of lies and layered with dubious facts. The lies used to frame and entrapped. The Church of Almighty God are collapsing in on themselves today. Eastern lightning remains on a list of banned religious groups in China and according to its website is reportedly still amassing millions of followers but though the group has managed to evade the spotlight for years now it's Army of radical believers may always be on the precipice of committing their next senseless act of violence..
