911 Phone Calls Released Of Transgender Woman Beaten In McDonald’s

ROSEDALE, Md. (WJZ)— Outrage is growing over that violent beating of a transgender woman inside a Baltimore County McDonald’s. Now for the first time, we’re hearing the calls to 911 for help.

Kai Jackson explains many believe this is a hate crime.

The attack was as sickening as it was vicious. A Rosedale McDonald’s was the scene of a violent attack on April 18 that was captured on video. Now police have released the tense-filled calls to 911 for help.

“To actually see the video and the people in there they didn’t help her,” said Juliette Rambharose, of Rosedale.

Police say the victim is actually a 22-year-old transgender woman named Chrissy Polis.

“You don’t have to explain yourself to nobody. Be who you are and go as you are,” Polis said.

Investigators say for some reason Teonna Brown, 18, and a 14-year-old girl got into a dispute with Polis and attacked her.

A McDonald’s employee captured mobile phone video of the attack, which went viral on the Internet.

McDonald’s says that employee was fired.

Now security has been increased. The video shows Polis apparently having a seizure after the beating.

Caller: “We got a customer having a seizure right here in McDonald’s.”

911: “Can you tell if he’s awake right now?”

Caller: “Yeah. He moving. Yeah. He need help for real.”

Beyond increased security, McDonald’s says it continues to investigate to determine what other employees were doing while the victim was beaten.

Baltimore County Police have charged both attackers with assault and are debating bumping up charges to a hate crime.

“I believe it should be a hate a crime because hate versus one versus another, it truly was hate,” said Vincent Rose, of Rosedale.

The 14-year-old girl in the case is charged as a juvenile, so her name isn’t being released.

Apparently, Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger is still weighing whether to file additional charges.

    The 14 year old should be beaten just like she beat this victim.
    That would be justice. Some of the problem

  2. Judith says:

    Christ, it only took the McDonalds employee 10 minutes to make a move. “He need help for real”? The fact that this state is number ONE for education in the nation worries me.

  3. jsnuff says:

    Maryland has never been, is not ow and never will be number 1 for education or ANYTHING else in the universe except a state full of ignorant fools that do NOT deserve to live with Americans and humans!!!!

    Yes he should not of used the womwn rest room. The employees should not be expected to break it up. However they should be expected to make a phone call to the police. That would be protecting themselves, other employees and the customers. Who to say that someone would not of pulled a gun out and started shooting the others employees and customers. If you want to work than be an adult and be resposible and make the phone call not stand around and just watch.

      DONNA THE POLICE WAS CALLED, MORE THEN ONE TIME. MY QUESTION IS WHAT TOOK THE POLICE SO LONG TO RESPOND TO THE 911 CALLS THAT HAD BEEN MADE. SO, IF THERE IS A FIGHT AND NO CUSTOMERS TO GIVE SERVICE TO IN AND WHEN CUSTOMERS DO PLACE THEIR FOOD ORDER.

      WHAT ELSE ARE THE EMPLOYEES TO DO BUT WAIT AT THEIR WORK STATIONS AND WAIT FOR THE POLICE TO COME AND HANDLE THE PROBLEM.

      MACDONALD’S CEO’S DON’T CARE ABOUT THOSE EMPLOYEES. THE ONLY THING THAT MACDONLD CORPORATION CARE ABOUT IS MAKING A PROFIT. THATS IT. THEY USE CHEAP LABOR TO DO THE DIRTY WORK.

      YES, THE WORKER DID WHAT WAS RIGHT, CALL THE POLICE AND ALLOW THE POLICE TO DO THEIR JOB IS WHAT THE POLICE GET PAID TO DO NOT THE WORKER. NOT ONLY THAT THOSE EMPLOYEES THAT NOW WORK AT THAT ROSE DALE MACDONALD’S ARE IN GREAT DANGER BECAUSE NOW THEY HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEIR SAFETY AT WORK AND ALSO WHEN THEY LEAVE THAT BUILDING. SO THE QUESTION IS WHAT IS MACDONALD CORPORATION DOING ABOUT THE SECURITY CAMERAS AND SECURITY GUARDS TO BE PLACE AT ALL MACDONALD LOCATIONS IN THE STATE OF MARYLAND ? PEOPLE NEED TO STOP CRYING HATE AND START CRYING SAFERTY AND SECURITY. NO ONE IS SAFE NO PLACE NO WHERE, NOT
      ANY MORE.

      THAT DUMB FOR ANY TO SAY THAT THE WORKERS SHOULD HAVE BEEN WORKING WHEN THERE WERE NO CUSTOMER TO BE WAITED ON DUE TO THE CUSTOMER MOVED TO THE OTHER AREA OF THE STORE. SO THE EMPLOYEES HAD NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO STAND, LOOK AND WAIT UNTIL THE POLICE ARRIVED.

      IF THAT WAS ANYONE BUT A WHITE SKIN-ED PERSON IN A FIGHT, NO ONE WOULD HAD EVER HEARD NOT ONE WORD. MY QUESTION IS, THE FIRST FIGHT THAT THE 18 YR. OLD HAD,. WAS THE 1st VICTIM BLACK AND A BLACK FEMALE.NOW MY NEXT QUESTION, IS THAT THE REAL REASON WHY THE MACDONALD’S CORPORATION FAIL AND TOTALLY REFUSE TO DO ANY THING ABOUT THE SECURITY ISSUE WHEN THE 1st FIGHT WITH THIS SAME 18 YR. OLD FIRST OCCURRED ? THEN, IF SO THE FORMER EMPLOYEES AND THE FIRST VICTIM SHOULD SUE THE HELL OUT OF MACDONALD’S CORPORATION FOR “INDIRECT RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION………!!!”

      “DISTINGUISH DISCRIMINATION”……..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    seizure ! well how come a spoon was not place into his mouth and no 911 call was made to send a ambulance to take him to the hospital and he was not admitted to no hospital not even a over night stay for him to be admitted in a hospital.

    people in Maryland need to fight for a bill that would put a stop and end all hate crime regardless of race hate is hate. no hate crime should be allowed.

    this media coverage should weak the ethnic groups up !! hundreds of ethnic murders and different type of crime happen every day. there is not one word nor no one to come to their defends snd speak out about a hate crime.

    hate is hate. since when did a hate crime start to be notice, only when a gay man get into a fight.

    I wonder if it would have been 2 white female teens beating his tail. would this transgender and his gay group still be crying hate crime.

    Maryland has a large population of gay people. with do many rapes that take place. it seem like Maryland has become another sodem and Gomorrah.

    This is hilarious….not the story, the comments. I love Baltimore…the raging duality of the nations finest education producing the people who make comments like..well..all of the above. LOL! WOW…I am so glad We homeschool. I would be terrified to send my kids to school with gaumless nitwits like this. Really? Any true African American should be offended by the behavior of these embarrassments to the beauty of real blackness. All of you who speak with that ridiculous “slang” should be ashamed of your ignorance. But no, YOU SOME PROUD N’s! AINTCH’YA. You make beautiful black look bad. You give half-witted racists like “Sherrif Willie” fuel for their equally obtuse babble. You want to make your life better, start by paying attention to the teachers in school instead of the 18 colors of nail polish your your sistah has on her 6 inch finger nails.

    ..and before Ex-Baltimore gets on here to agree with me, let me pre-empt your response with… you are just as much a slave to ignorance as the low-life’s you disdain, you just have more money. You should be doing everything your money can help you do to try and change the path these kids are headed down instead of hiding in your gated community with your wealthy wife and all your money…coward. (if you don’t understand this comment directed toward ex-Baltimore, you should read his posts on other forums).

      TO THE PROVEN SLAVE OF POOR HOME SCHOOLING.
      YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT YOUR GRAMMAR BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY TYPE OF COMMENT AGAINST ANYONE. SINCE YOUR MIND IS SO LIMITED. THE UNITED STATES HAVE THE LOWEST QUALITY OF STANDARDS IN THE WORLD.

      TO NO SLAVE TO STUPIDITY…….REMEMBER YOU MADE THE COMMENT:I AM SO GLAD WE HOME SCHOOL.

      THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU CLOSE MIND FREE. THAT PAPER THAT IN PRINT SAY DEGREE WILL NOT STOP YOU FROM LOSING YOUR JOB, YOUR HOUSE, NOR YOUR LIFE. YOU SHOULD NEVER MAKE YOUR SELF TO BE MORE THEN WHAT YOU REALLY ARE. * A HUMAN BEING. DIRT YOU CAME FROM AND DUST YOU RETURN. AS FAR AS ANY THING ELSE. WHO CARES…..!

  7. Becky White says:

    Good grammar, poor grammar, the facts remain the same. All three parties were DEAD WRONG. Beginning and ending with transgender Chris Polis. It is up to you to look out for your own safety. To go into the hood dressed as a woman, looking to bed a black john is asking to get your prostitute arse kicked. Simple as that.

  8. Bubbled says:

    I love this. Black people can disparage whites because they feel it’s a right. But let me talk about breaking out my white sheet and all he’ll breaks loose. It was a hate crime. No one had a right to put their hands on anyone else. Black people need to take responsibility for their violent actions and poor behavior instead of blaming someone else. Oh and slavery? Get over it. None of you have ever broken your backs working in the hot sun unless collecting welfare money and food stamps and suing white people for looking at you the wrong way is just exhausting for you. Go back to your hoods, drink, smoke, and cry racism because you’re too lazy to work.

    1. blackice says:

      BUBBLED

      DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR, YOU CAN GO BACK 200 YEARS AND BRING ALL THE DEAD WHITE HOODED SHEETS REDNECKS OUT ALL THE WAY TO THE TIME CALLED RIGHT NOW, YOUR WHITE SHEETS WILL BE RUNNING WITH BLOOD. IF YOU RED NECKS THINK THAT YOU WANT TO START A RACE WAR. THEN GET READY TO FIGHT EVERY ETHIC GROUP THAT HAS COME TO THIS UNITED STATES OF YOUR SO CALLED AMERICA.

      ONE, YOU DUMB WHITE BACK WARD MINDS IS TOO DUMB TO SEE THAT YOUR POOR WHITE UN DEFILED TRASH TAIL IS GOING TO NEED EVERY AMERICAN TO HELP DEFEND THIS COUNTRY THAT IS NOW UNDER A HIGH TERRORIST WATCH EVER SINCE THE UNITED NATION CLAIM TO HAVE KILLED BIN LADEN AND THE MIDDLE EAST WANT TO TAKE THE UNITED STATE OFF THE MAP. SO IF YOU WANT TO SEE YOUR WHOLE GENERATION OF PEOPLE TAKEN OUT. REMEMBER, YOU WANT TO START A CIVIC WAR AMONG YOU AMERICAN PEOPLE. BUT THE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD IN ALL COUNTRIES HATE THE UNITED STATES WHITE PEOPLE DUE TO THE WHITES THAT CONTROL AND RAN THE WORLD WITH IT’S GREED AND LUST THAT DESTROY THIS ONCE GREAT NATION. SO IF I WERE YOU I WOULD NOT BE CRYING RACISM. CHILL NIGGAR.

      IF I WERE YOU. SAY YOU PRAYERS AND HOPE TO GOD THAT YOUR PEACE WILL NOT BE TAKEN.

    Mattie,
    You are obviously a black female, trying to make excuses for the behavior of these two girls. They behaved like animals. Period. They were wrong, and the employees who failed to step and help, were also wrong. There is simply no reason whatsoever that this beating should have taken place. If the girls had trouble with the transgendered person using the ladies room, they should have called a manager, or waited to use the bathroom after the victim was finished using it. There were several better options! But these girls chose to act like hoods. Your comments about the victim are disrespectful. Try to play God and see where it gets you.

  10. JLP45 says:

    This as a hate crime plan and simple. The victim weighed 90 lbs could have been your brother or sister and grown men stand around waiting for the police. This glad it’s not me attitude is what got the planes taken down on 9/11. Just keep waiting for the government to supply tour security and every need, you’ll have a long wait.
    Women using the Mens room isn’t that uncommon, transgendered men have to use the ladies room, MEN (?) would not put up with it. As long as they go there for the purpose intended and don’t make a spectacle of themselves I see nothing wrong with it,
    Polis did not deserve this beating, the McDonalds shoukd have been closed for 10 days until they come up with a planto handle these things, a liqour out let would have been closed.

  11. Jack Pollack says:

    No one has said that Baltimore city or county is number one in ed in the country. A county like Montgomery raises the standards for the state. Balto city and Rosedale lower the average.
