About that Popeye's restaurant which fired the pregnant employee

The franchise owner of the Popeye's in question is Z&H Foods Inc., of Houston, Texas.

They were sued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2014 for failing to respond to an administrative subpoena pursuant to an investigation of their employment practices:



4. The Respondent is an employer doing business in the State of Texas,
with a Popeye’s facility at 3103 FM 1960, in Humble, Texas.

5. On May 6, 2014, pursuant to its authority under 29 U.S.C. § 161 (incorporated in
Section 710 of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-9, which, in turn, is incorporated in Section 107(a)
of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. §12117(a)), the EEOC issued to the Respondent Subpoena No.
HU-A14-39, which was duly served on the Respondent.

6. Subpoena No. HU-A14-39 required the Respondent to produce information
needed as part of the EEOC’s investigation of a charge of unlawful employ
ment practices, Charge No. 460-2014-00470, which has been filed against the Respondent.

7. The Respondent has not filed a petition to revoke or modify the Subpoena.

8. The Respondent has refused to comply with Subpoena No. HU-A14-39.

The proceedings appear to have been served on the following individual:

Z&H Foods, Inc.
Shoukat Dhanani
4415 Highway 6
Sugarland, TX 77478

A real peach that guy is.

Be sure to say hello to him on Facebook, for those of you that use it:

Who could resist the heady mix of Anita Bryant's overpoweringly wholesome sexual excitement and a great source of vitamin C?

If the Supreme Court Upholds Marriage Equality...

The thing that will be a real wonder to observe will be everyone from Pat Robertson to Rick Santorum to Mike Hucksterbee and the whole lot of them just go on a wild spree of having sex with dogs, cats, armadillos, etc.; sexually assaulting inanimate objects; and engaging in the most bizarre public acts of sexual perversion imaginable; because - now think about it - you take note of every dire consequence that they've come up with over the years, and it dawns on me now that they've been putting together a twisted "bucket list" of things to do as soon as they hear the ruling.

Question about tasers...

I've never handled one, so I have no clue on their operation other than there is an HV induction circuit attached by long thin wires to two barbs that shoot out.

After a taser is fired, how do you get the wires and barbs back into the taser?

Are they expendable parts, or do you re-load them?

Are there two cops in the video?

I've only seen what was shown on Chris Hayes.

When the object is dropped by the shooter next to the body, it seems there is another cop standing right there as he drops it.

On Hayes' show, the area of the object being dropped is enhanced, and the remainder of the shot is blurred out.

It looks like there is anothe cop standing right there.

Where is the other cop now, and why is that cop not being charged? The object - presumably the taser - is dropped right in front of that other cop.
