    Forget the fries, just walking into McDonald’s can get you killed

    MDeals aplenty at One and Three World Trade Center
    The tragic murder of McDonald’s hero Adam Garcia, 28, who was trying to protect customers from a homeless psychotic, should be a wake-up call about what’s going on at the Golden Arches’ 250 New York City outlets.
    Garcia’s stabbing on the sidewalk outside a McDonald’s in The Bronx early Monday morning was at least the sixth case of violent mayhem at one of the chain’s eateries since March 2015. The Big Mac attacks have left three dead and five seriously injured.
    No wonder: Too many McDonald’s outlets are sleaze pits. Their downmarket, let-it-all-hang-out atmosphere draws lowlifes who couldn’t care less that the profit-challenged chain boasts it now sells antibiotic-free chicken.
    The recent crime wave makes McDonald’s desperate attempt to hop on the “wellness” bandwagon even more grotesque.
    Prior to this week’s murder:
    • A 15-year-old girl was stomped nearly to death in March at a McDonald’s on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, where police were called to break up fights 10 times in the previous 14 months.
    • A breakfast brawl between couples at a McDonald’s on Lexington Avenue and 125th Street in August — presumably not over “all-day breakfast” treats like sausage, biscuit and egg (520 calories) — spilled onto the sidewalk where a man was stabbed to death and a woman critically wounded.
    • A dispute that started in the druggie-infested “zombie McDonald’s” on Eighth Avenue near West 35th Street turned into a sidewalk chase in November, ending in a lethal shooting two blocks away.
    • Thugs assaulted, robbed and shouted homophobic slurs at a young man at a Crown Heights McDonald’s in November.
    • Proving the bloodshed isn’t limited to rough neighborhoods, two people were slashed last week in a McDonald’s on Third Avenue at East 58th Street in Manhattan. The “cutting incident” is under investigation.
    Everything about McDonald’s is creepy, including a scandalous campaign by a “brand ambassador” named John Cisna to convince schoolkids that they can lose weight as he did — 60 pounds in 90 days! — by eating every meal at the Golden Arches.
    Supported by the chain, the former Iowa science teacher has barnstormed schools around the United States, telling kids, “There’s nothing wrong with fast food. There’s nothing wrong with McDonald’s.”
    His propaganda has been condemned by advocates for better school diets — among them, Lunch Tray blogger Bettina Elias Siegel, who launched a petition that’s drawn 80,000 signatures urging McDonald’s to quit sponsoring him.
    Cisna has avoided New York, though. Maybe he’s afraid of McDonald’s branches that are giving “social clubs” a run for their blood-soaked money.
    Their appeal to homicidal lowlifes calls not for petitions, but padlocks.

    It's not McDonald's that's the problem, it's New York

    This story is so true. McDonalds fast food joints are magnets for the homeless and drug addicts in NYC. Since the majority are open 24 hours you'll normally see meth heads stumbling outside and inside there's at least a half dozen homeless snoring away at a table.

    The crap in fast food will kill you. Just going to a fast food joint might kill you faster.

    Most people have moved on to Shake Shack, Five Guys, etc. Real burger places with real food. McDonalds just sells crap "food" like 10 burgers for 99 cents. They are only thriving in certain areas now. Not attracting the best people I guess.

    Five Guys: where people can pay five times more for even unhealthier food.

    When I was a kid it was a big deal for my parents to take us out to McDonalds....
    now when you tell a kid you are taking them to McDonalds it almost seems like a punishment... :(
