The film “Rape at McDonalds” (https://online.fiu.edu/videos?vpvid=64eb1015ac1f4c4d93518f6bb7de90f5) usually draws a lot of antipathy and anger against the manager of the restaurant. My students often ask, why did she allow her employee to get abused, especially by her … fiancé! In your discussion group for this chapter, I want you to 1) EXPLAIN the manager’s actions using the information you now know about conformity and obedience. I know that is tough to do, but use some of the social psychology concepts you learned in this chapter to give an explanation for her behavior. At the same time, I want you to 2). talk about how she could have and should have handled the situation. 3). Finally, in your comments, make sure to define and highlight the role of informational versus normative social influences as well as the concept of obedience to authority. In your follow-up comment, feel free to agree or disagree with one of your group mates. Did that student do an adequate job of actually explaining the manager?
NOTE: There are actually two versions of this rape at McDonalds video – a long version and a short version. You can find both in the videos folder at the bottom of the main blackboard page OR there are links to both videos on the final slide in the powerpoint presentation. I am only requiring you to watch the short version. Finally, there was a movie based on this event called “Compliance” that came out in the Fall of 2012. I have yet to see that movie, but if any of you have then please feel free to draw insights from the film as well.
