Subject: Jack in the Box problems
Wednesday, May 03, 1995
Last October two gay men and their two straight workers
drove into the Marina Jack in the Box to get a few
hamburgers and some cokes. What they got was very different
from what they paid for. When the gentlemen pointed out to
the drive-through window that their order was shorted the
cashier told them "you faggots are lucky to get anything." A
shouting match ensued between the ENTIRE STAFF of Jack in
the Box and the four customers.
What happened next was quite a surprise, as the staff
came out the back door surrounded the van screaming anti-gay
statements and the incident nearly came to the point of
physical violence. The four men drove to the nearest police
station and filed police statements against the Jack in the
Box restaurant employees.
Last January I was attacked by three men in the Jack in
the Box parking lot and now the parent corporation tells me
that they will not pay my medical bills which are mounting.
My attack was also an anti-gay attack, and again the
employees of Jack in the Box were of no help. It might
surprise you to know that the gay community and the Marina
residents of San Francisco are uniting against Jack in the
Box -- moving to close it down for being a public nuisance.
If there are any more reports of anti-gay attacks on
Jack in the Box property across the nation please contact me
ASAP. Should you know of any others besides yourself please
put them in contact with me.
