Employees you wouldn’t want for free

Reported by CBS Atlanta:

Montgomery police have arrested two 19-year-old Taco Bell employees in the slaying of the restaurant’s night manager.

Police say Renauldous Chisolm and Kenneth Temple of Montgomery were arrested Monday and are charged with capital murder in the killing of 43-year-old Vettia Roche.

Some blog commenters like to say that there’s always some useful job people could do instead of collecting government benefits, but here we see an example of the type of employees I’d rather not have working for me even if the government was paying me to employee them.

  1. What if the labor was organized chain-gang style?

    • It sounds like this may have been a rape gone horribly, horribly wrong.

  3. It’s not “Renauldous,” it’s “Renauldeated.” People always get that wrong.

  4. Interesting comment at the article,

    “When you teach kids that they can just kill an “unwanted” baby you are teaching them that human life is worthless.

    These kids got the message.”

    What say you, Lion?

    • Don’t teach kids that. I’m not sure why young children need to be taught anything about abortion. When they are old enough for sex education, it can be taught as a medical procedure that terminates a pregnancy.

    • Many countries where abortion is freely available have homicide rates a tiny fraction of the rate in the U.S. To name one such country, Sweden, where the murder rate is one fifth the U.S. rate.

      Many countries where abortion is highly restrictive have homicide rates as high or higher than in the U.S. One such country is Brazil, where the murder rate is almost five times higher than in the U.S.

      • Yes, because Sweden and Brazil have the same demographic makeup (then again, wait five years, and perhaps this won’t be sarcasm). It isn’t ideology that determines success or dynsfunction, its the people (see Portland v. Detroit).

    …Roche ended up in Montgomery after losing nearly everything in a tornado. After a lot of searching, van Gilder says Roche landed the job at Taco Bell. She was excited to have a job to support her family.

  7. Lion, there are two separate issues here:

    1) Uneducable/unemployable NAMs who will cause a problem no matter where they are.

    2) A post-scarcity society of basically reasonable people where increased leisure time should be the goal as opposed to “self actualization” through more hours and “growth”.

  8. This makes me really want Taco Bell. Maybe they planned this as some sort of viral ad campaign?

  9. Taco Bell makes some of the best prole food that’s out there. I get my lunch from a Taco Bell in a crappy area in north Philly occasionally, and I’m truly amazed at the service.

    The staff is almost exclusively black and Hispanic. A few of the older blacks are definitely ex-cons, and I can’t tell you how polite and courteous they are. It’s like walking into a Trader Joe’s or something.

    I don’t know what’s going on there, but I think the service I get is the result of a strict black daytime manager who seems to work with the other employees, rather than just observe and give orders.

    It almost gives me a little hope when it comes to what proles are capable of. As anyone reading this blog knows, education can’t make stupid people smart. But the most disgusting thing about proles certainly isn’t their lower than average intelligence; it’s their rudeness and lack of good personal hygiene.

    It seems, to me anyway, that those things can and should be taught to almost everyone. If we’re going to continue with Head Start or make pre-k universal, that should be what we focus on.

    • The “prole” distinction is increasingly meaningless when it comes to fast food. Two trends that haven’t gotten much attention are that the quality and costs of fast food are going up. Upscale fast food places like Five Guys and Chipotle (and, in the New York area at least, Shake Shack), have started a quality arms race.

      First Wendy’s upgraded its burgers and buns (still the best burgers you can get at a drivethru). Now McDonald’s has a new burger with a fancy bun. And Taco Bell has improved its quality and variety. The new XXL line of tacos and burritos is great, and Taco Bell’s steak is actually better than Chipotle’s (which is always gristly, even if it is organic). But most of it isn’t cheap anymore. I picked up 4 XXL tacos, 2 sodas, and one order of Cinnabon delights (which are awesome, btw) for my inamorata and I last night, and it was $21.

  10. As one who works as an employer in a low paid low skill industry I can state with authority that it is better to have as an employee a 16 year old schoolboy with 0 experience and an iq of 110 than a 40 yr old with 20 yr experience and an iq of 75.

  12. When I was 14 years old, I had a part-time job pumping gas in a neighborhood Mobile station. I had my own key to the place, and on weekend nights worked by myself and closed up the station at midnight. Late one Saturday night before closing time, another teen employee that I had worked with earlier that day came back to the station with some older goon and robbed me at knife-point. They held a large knowf to my throat and forced me to open up the safe, then handcuffed me to a water heater in the back room and beat me up. This event convinced me and my parents that the job surely wasn’t worth the $2.10 per hour. Just another example of why, as LotB recommends, teenagers shouldn’t hold down part-time jobs. I did get a first-hand education of the criminal justice system after the cops caught the two guys a couple of weeks later half-way across the country.

  13. OT. About this morning’s Harlem explosion, I do think that some people want to gentrify Harlem. Whatever about the explosion, do you think Harlem is gentrifiable?


    March 12, 2014 at 6:55 PM

    • Not gentrifiable, too much entrenched housing projects.

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      • Both Harlems have been going through the gentrification process. Black Harlem is more gentrified than Spanish Harlem. I think it has to do with Hispanics having some leverage with their neighborhoods, similar to Manhattan’s Chinatown. Blacks have less capital because they have crappier jobs, and are more susceptible to displacement because of it. Hispanics are better off, and their children are doing better than black children. I’ve come across Hispanics, the project dwelling types, who work for BIGLAW and some of the IBs, as support staff. Find me a black person with such a job, from a similar socioeconomic background. It’s much rarer, and almost non-existent!


        March 13, 2014 at 12:06 AM

    • Nah, the gas leak that spared the explosion was racist.

  14. Is Renault short for Renauldous?


    March 12, 2014 at 8:04 PM

    • Renault is a name brand of a car, and also the terse commentator here, with his Pavlovian response, usually whenever an idiot botches on a Harvard comment.


      March 12, 2014 at 9:58 PM

      • It’s actually short for “Renaultisha.”

  17. You gotta love the laughable incompetence of NAM criminals. They rob the Taco Bell where they both work, as if the cops wouldn’t be notified the day after a robbery when both Renaldous and LaShawn don’t show up for their regular shift. This Taco Bell is probably within 1/2 mile of where they live, too.

    Maybe Eric Holder will start a massive DOJ inquiry into how the justice system seems to go particularly hard on stupid criminals, since this unfairly and disproportionately targets offenders of color.

  18. This seems to be a rather extreme example to make your point. I wouldn’t want those people around whether they were employees or not. I wouldn’t even want them as customers. They’d likely come back later to do the same thing.

  19. Under the Constitutional Restoration Government, we’re going to have to talk about paid, voluntary repatriation to Africa. It will be voluntary at first.

  20. again needless to say this points to how very artificial employment and having a job is. hired men are spoken of in the bible, and the ancient world was majority slave, but the employer/employee relationship is new to the last 200 years for the most part.

    marx’s “proletariat” was a class which hadn’t existed in great numbers prior to the 19th c, but by the time capital was written they were the majority in w europe.
