Fast food, killing black folks, special treatment from police--there's something inherently American about all of this. From TPM:
Police in Shelby, North Carolina bought a Burger King meal for the white man who allegedly killed nine people at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina after they arrested him Thursday, The Charlotte Observer reported.
Shelby Police Chief Jeff Ledford told the newspaper that the only conversation his officers had with 21-year-old Dylann Roof was about food. The alleged gunman told them that he was hungry after eating nothing but some chips he'd bought at a Charlotte gas station before he was arrested in a traffic stop...
“He did have something to eat while he was there, and he was secured in cuffs the entire time,” he told the news site.
