Last time we had the Battle of Del Rio. This time a customer did this (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110321/ap_on_re_us/us_texas_burrito_rage). Is it the food?

Police: Angry Taco Bell customer fires at officers

SAN ANTONIO – Police say a San Antonio Taco Bell customer enraged that the seven burritos he ordered had gone up in price fired an air gun at an employee and later fired an assault rifle at officers before barricading himself into a hotel room.

San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides says officers used tear gas Sunday night to force the man from the hotel room after a three-hour standoff. The man is charged with three counts of attempted capital murder. Authorities have not released his name.

Brian Tillerson, a manager at the Taco Bell/KFC restaurant, told the San Antonio Express-News that the man was angry the Beefy Crunch Burrito had gone from 99 cents to $1.49 each.

Police say the man fired on officers during a traffic stop after the restaurant incident.

Taco Bell,

How many cops have to die for you to bring back the Chilito?

We are talking about $3.43 here. That's no joking matter. I'd have likely done something similar. It's time we all stood up to Taco Bell with weapons.

Apparently it is. I never knew that.

We have a Taco Bell like two miles from the house. Literally the last three times the daughter has eaten from there (spread out over a couple of months time), she had gotten sick.

Moral of the story - stay the hell away from Toxic Hell.

A 50 percent increase is price-gouging. They got people addicted to the delightful taste of the Beefy Crunch Burrito by offering it cheap, and now they're applying the screws.
