When you're on the run from the police for killing someone on Facebook Live, it's probably in your best interest to lay low.
But then again, if you're the kind of person who'd do something like that, you're more than likely not in total control of all your mental faculties. I guess when you are running from the law you get hungry, and what else satisfies your taste buds than McDonald's fries.
So you'd think there's nothing wrong with ordering some McDonald's in broad daylight, and aren't really concerned with someone recognizing you while you satisfy your urge to quell a Big Mac attack.
Two workers at the Erie, Pennsylvania McDonald's where "Facebook Live Killer" Steve Stephens was spotted before being chased by cops and ultimately shooting himself dead helped put an end to the manhunt. They did so by stalling Stephens after recognizing him by telling the man his fries weren't ready.
Naturally, when Stephens was caught, a question arose: are the McDonald's employees entitled to the $50,000 reward that was being offered for any information that led to the arrest or capture of "The Facebook Live Killer"?
And if you ask most people on Twitter, they'll give a resounding "yes."
People are saying that there's "no question" the two workers deserve it.
Some brought up the fact that fast food workers could especially use the money.
Others are flat-out saying it's their right.
Local law enforcement also said that the employees at the McDonald's were an integral part in cornering Stephens, but at this time, it's unclear as to whether or not one or more of the workers will receive the $50,000 reward offered by the FBI, ATF, and U.S. Marshal Service.
Do you think they deserve the reward? (h/t wnep)
