The victim of last week's vicious attack at a Baltimore McDonalds is speaking to the media. Crissy Lee Polis, a transgender woman who was severely beaten by two teenagers, spoke with the Baltimore Sun about the incident and what led up to it.
Both perpetrators have been arrested; one is 14 years old and the other is 18. The McDonalds employee who filmed the assault but didn't intervene has been fired. Vernon Hackett posted the video online with transphobic remarks shortly after the incident and can be heard on tape laughing and warning the attackers to flee because the police had been called.
