    What is the benefit to DBS Talk members of publicizing this story? I understand the situation may be important to the people directly involved (suspect and victim), but what is the wider theme that would benefit DBS Talk members? Or what is so unusual about this story that makes it particularly interesting?

    Admittedly, I don't live in LA, but it would be a pretty unusual incident around here (and I'd think most places.)

    I think it would be rather unusual just about anywhere.

    There are a number of topics (including several which don't interest me) in the DBSTalk OT section which have no true benefit to DBSTalk members but they are still here and we talk about them.

    I have gone through my share of drive-thru's over the year (including one at this very Del Taco) and have seen my order screwed up more than once. Normally, the person behind the window gives you one of those phony smiles and does what-ever they can to make it right and get you on the way.

    I would expect someone who is ordered and being screwed by Del Taco's dude would react in the manner ...

    just to clarify, it was the Del Taco employee who went off & not the customer.

    "You guys put sour cream in my chalupa when I explicitly stated I only wanted cheese sauce!!!"

    What I dont get is why the heck would the drive through cashier care if the order was screwed up its not like he made the taco or something. Unless the Del Taco cashiers also double as cooks? I've actually never ate at a Del Taco before o_O

    Since this episode occurred shortly after 2am, I would think the staffing is minimal and they probably do double duty.

    My question is, how did the DRIVE THRU ATTENDANT reach through the DRIVE THRU WINDOW and stab the guy in the abdomen? I don't know how the drive thrus are in Cali, but around here, I sometimes can barely reach the attendant in my vehicle. What was he hanging out of the window? And if so, wouldn't that give the driver enough time to floor it? lol

    Something like this:

    After trading insults regarding mothers, one says,

    OK, man, you step outside an say dat.

    No, man, YOU step outside and say dat.

    OK, I'm coming out, you better git.

    No, YOU git.... and on and on...

    So....

    If he actually got out of his vehicle to continue a fight, they're both at fault. Granted, he didn't invite the attendant to draw a knife on him, but he didn't have to get out of his vehicle either. I'd have just driven away before I got out of my vehicle.
