MSM At It Again: True Story Comes Out on Open Carry Jack-In-The-Box ‘Hoax’

Screenshot 2014-05-17 at 10.00.39 AMThere is an interesting short paragraph in a story from Arlington, Texas.   Arlington is next door to Fort Worth, where the story of Jack in the Box employees being so frightened of some open carriers that they locked themselves in the freezer was widely reported.  From the Forbes version of the story, directly based on an email from the Fort Worth Police:

In Fort Worth, Texas last week, employees took to the fast food outlet’s freezer, hiding among the frozen burger patties until squad cars arrived at the scene.

“Officers spoke with Jack in the Box employees who reported that they feared for their lives and believed they were being robbed,” said the Fort Worth Police Department in a statement.

“They locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear that the rifle-carrying men would rob them.”

There turned out to be numerous problems with that account.  Employees claimed they never said it.  Jack in the Box officials deny their employees were in fear of their lives or locked themselves in a freezer.    There was only one 911 call, and it was not from  the restaurant, and did not describe anything threatening.  The open carriers have always stated that they went inside, ordered, received their food, paid and left.  It is all covered here.
