After police captured Dylann Storm Roof, the 21 year old responsible for killing nine people inside an historically black church last Wednesday, they bought him Burger King because he was hungry.
According to The Charlotte Observer, Roof was on the run and brought into custody in North Carolina after the massacre and only had water and a bag of Doritos that day, the city’s police chief Jeff Ledford said, so the cops decided to do their civic duty and pick up a burger and some fries for the shooter.
“He was very quiet, very calm. He didn’t talk,” said Ledford. “He sat down here very quietly. He was not problematic.”
But I guess Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, John Crawford, Oscar Grant, and Mike Brown were?
Roof entered Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina June 17th and sat for an hour during the bible meeting before killing all in attendance.
According to writings from Roof on white-supremacist message board, Roof believed he had no choice but to go through with the killings, with the intentions of wanting to start a race war.
“I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.”
Roof kills nine people and gets Burger King. Eric Garner sold cigarettes.
Let that sink in.
