Update: Rayon McIntosh Speaks Out and Campaign to Free Him Has Been Unsuccessful

Rayon McIntosh, 31, in court after being arrested for beating two "aggressive" female customers in a Greenwich Village McDonald's where he worked.

Since our report on Rayon McIntosh, we’re still upset with his immediate incarceration at Riker’s Island after defending himself  from two young ladies in a dispute at a Greenwich Village McDonald’s.  McIntosh had already done 11 years and was trying to be on the straight and narrow when two women attacked him and caused him to retaliate.

The women, Denise Darbeau and Rachel Edwards, both 24, also have charges.  But, it has also been reported that Darbeau has more severe injuries.  Initially, we reported Darbeau suffered a broken arm and fractured skull.  According to Sandra Rose, Darbeau’s mother said that her daughter would have permanent brain damage from her injuries. 

But, it’s hard to have sympathy for her when you hear McIntosh’s side of the story.  He gave an exclusive interview to New York Daily News from Riker’s Island saying:

“I was not looking for trouble,” said McIntosh, 31, wearing a crisp gray jail outfit. “The trouble found me. People are portraying me as a vicious attacker.

“I was just working at my job when I was attacked for no reason. I’m not a heartless person.”

“She said, ‘Oh, you think my s–t is fake?’ … She started saying, ‘Suck my d–k.’ She called my mother a whore.”

“I was being attacked by aggressive people I didn’t know,” said McIntosh. “I was just defending myself. They came in and went crazy on me.”

  1. Had McIntosh been like me (a not street smart country bumpkin) those two would have gouged his eyes out and castrated him before he had a chance to utter a chivalrous “pardon my existence ladies”.
    Then a quarter of the women in the US – and 80 percent of female talk show panel members – would have been laughing about it.

    This is yet another example of selective gender equality where equal protection under the law is concerned; and Bill Bennett wants young men to “man up”?
    Why?- so they can be administered a savage beating by female miscreants, and then the media, and then (hopefully not) the courts?

    Go Your Own Way, young man. You are the only one who can hold women responsible when they do wrong.
    No one else seems willing.

    Remember Thomas Ball.
