This is an article about a very bizarre and puzzling series of crimes. I read it with sick horror, but not a lot of surprise. Most people will do some really insane things at the behest of an authority.
Anyway, here's a link to A hoax most cruel.
I hold these people responsible for their actions, but to a much lesser degree than I might had the caller not been on the phone. And I think McDonald's suing them is utterly reprehensible. I don't think they are very culpable for the actions of their employees, beyond fostering an environment that encourages blind obedience. But blaming them for besmirching the corporate image isn't reasonable. Especially, again, since they encourage a culture of blind obedience.
