    She seemed pretty amazed, they acted like they would be on top of this pretty quick.

    Good to hear. Are they going to require the complaint in writing? In any case, the investigation will be public record.

    That is the most atrocious thing I have ever read. It's a crime, assault is a crime and is punishable AND you can sue them for it.

    How in earth can they even think they can get away with that. What if someone has an allerigic reaction.
    Assualt and battery!!!! it is that simple. those employees need to go to the police.

    All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.


    People who let fear rule them are already defeated.

    Hitler, the Czechoslovakia thing, appeasement, toss him some crumbs and maybe he'll leave the loaf alone - that kind of thing. Except it never stops there. Not only did he take the loaf, he took the bakery and the wheat fields and hen houses, too - from half of Europe and into Africa. The goose-stepping monster even sailed a U boat right up the Hudson River!!

    Refusing to band together. Victim mentality that so many of us have been taught, to the point where we feel unworthy to challenge authority. Guilt, shame, fear of disapproval, fear of being fired or of falling out of favor, FEAR, FEAR, FEAR.

    "Nice girls don't buck authority." Ever hear that one? "Those in authority always have your best interest at heart." Government, your boss, your religious leader, your teacher, doctor, parents. All of them just love you and want the best for you. How about that little lie? Maybe they really do want the best for you - what they THINK is best. Except it turns out to not be best. Nor, probably, is the motive so altruistic. So often, those in power want to keep power, institutions just want to keep control of their staff and maintain their world as it presently is. Ever run into that? Read Machiavelli - "The Prince" - "Fear is better than love" type thing.

    As for a quick fix, your Mom can say she is allergic to eggs or state some other contraindication to the vax or say she already had it, of course they will want some written proof. If she had a doc's note, it would also work. Pisses me off totally that a grown person need's a doctor's note and can't just be honest and say she doesn't want the blasted shot, but it will do the trick.

    Seriously, though, those who were assaulted and battered need to get a lawyer NOW! :angryfire:angryfire

    What's that you say? My eyesight is going bad. You were held down by a long haired transvestite named Emmanuel and forced to receive a flu shot? Inconceivable!
