Popeye's food riot?

itemprop

A bit much to call it almost a riot, Fox 9, don't you think? Isn't the real story here that consumers have been misled -- a story in and of itself, in this case made more troubling by the likelihood that peoples' economic woes are driving them to queue up great distances over a possible $4.99 bucket of chicken? Food riots are real, yes. Food prices have been going up, true. But a food "fracas" on Lake St. it wud'nt. Did anyone try and go to Popeye's last Wednesday, or get stuck in traffic near the store?
