Vernon Hackett, 22

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Vernon Hackett. McDonald’s franchise owner Mitchell McPherson gave Hackett the boot after viewing the same brutal footage that we all saw this weekend – the violent attack on 22-year-old Chrissy Lee Polis that left her in a seizure. Hackett, who is heard laughing in the video, filmed much of the attack rather than assist the victim.

When Polis begins seizing in the video, Hackett warns the 14 and 18-year-old girls who savagely beat her that they had better run before the police arrive.

Surely Hackett’s hateful Facebook posts about how Polis had it coming for being a man dressed as a woman had something to do with his dismissal as well.

Owner Mitchell McPherson gave the following statement denouncing the violence in his restaurant:

“I’m as shocked and disturbed by this assault as anyone would be. The behavior displayed in the video is unfathomable and reprehensible.”

The video and original story can be viewed HERE.

Good riddance.

    Hopefully, Crissy Polis has gotten/is getting medical care. As for Vernon Hackett—he’s made his own mess out of this. Let him clean it up.

    OH MY. You posted his facebook information. Oh ho ho…

  • Emily Phillips

    Found’im… and my opinion shall be known. Politely and well spoken, of course.

    The victim transgender status in this case is irrelevant the government has the responsibility to prosecute the photographer in this situation as an accomplice in the crime for standing by and doing nothing to aid his fellow man in the middle of a potential life and death situation. If the victim had been anything other than homosexual, heterosexual,transgender, this crime is for all other tense and purpose is punishable as a crime.

    But are criminal charges being pressed? This guy and the two girls should be locked up ASAP.

    From “Charm Hackett’s” Facebook profile:

    “One Word That Describes Me Is…..CHARM….Its Sumthing God Has Blessed Me With….It Really Cant Be Denied….ESP 10/01/1989….Im On My Lets Get This Money Mindset N If U Aint Wit Me U Gonna Get Left Behind…..

    To Kno Me Is To Love Me N Once U Truly Kno Me Then Only Then Will U UnderStand Me,Im Not Lik Most Guyz….Buh Lee Me….IM TRULY CHARMIN,IM A LOVER”

    Good to know he’s not like most guyz.

  • In principle, i think filming it was a good idea, it provides evidence for police investigating the crime. that being said his small minded comments on the video and his view on the situation definitely earns him a special place in hell in my book.

  • I think to be an accomplise one would have to actively not inform the police. If he was fearful for his own safety (im just saying hypothetically in this specific case, he was obviously in the wrong but in general) then the worst you could call him is cowardly. If he knew that the police were being informed, then his obligation is at an end as far as the law should be concerned. That being said, yes, this particular instance with this individual is a perfect example of trans-phobia and ignorance. He stated in his comments to his video that “he still had a penis” which is really irrelevant in gender identity. It wasnt his responsibility to put him-self in harm’s way to stop the beating, but I think we all know that he and the rest of the employees could easily have stopped the two C*n75 who did this and it is clear from his laughter in the video that he was enjoying the crime and probably supporting it rather than opposing it.

  • I think he should be fined. I dont think he necessarily should be locked up. he didnt participate in the violence except by perhaps exacerbating it by laughing at the situation rather than telling the B!7<35 to stop.

  • I DONT GIVE A SHIT IF SHE WAS A HE EVERYONE HAS THERE DAM RIGHT TO BE WHO THEY WANT TO BE AND I THINK EVERYONE INCLUDING THE MANGER SHOULD BE FIRED THAT IS BULL SHIT OR I THINK THEY SHOULD SHUT THAT PLACE DOWN U ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOUR SELF
