A 21 year old white man opened fired last Wednesday night (June 17) in an effort to “start a race war,” killing nine people at an iconic African-American church in South Carolina.
The shooter, Dylan Roof, immediately fled to the scene to North Carolina. He was captured almost 12 hours later after a call had been made in by a civilian, certain she saw the South Carolina killer behind the wheel of his Hyundai sedan.
Roof was immediately prosecuted and did not once attempt to resist arrest. However, during transport, Roof made a bizarre request. One that police handled in an even more questionable manner.”Roof complained of hunger, and was treated to a meal at Burger King,” as accounted for by Shelby police chief, Jeff Ledford.
“Earlier in the day, Roof had bought water and chips at a south Charlotte gas station. Now he was hungry. Police bought him food from a nearby Burger King, Ledford said.”
A man who had just slaughtered nine innocent civilians during Bible study was taken to get food because he said he was ‘hungry’ and the police took mercy on him. Is there something wrong with this picture? Police have no tolerance for anything these days, yet they are sympathetic towards a hungry murderer?
