    Don't remember where, but someone was saying that sort of thing is often done to get better cooperation from the suspect in interrogation. Still pretty ironic though.

    A lot of news reports word it to make it sound like the squad car stopped at a Burger King before reaching the police HQ. From the Charlotte Observer, they said Roof was hungry in the interrogation room. There's nothing wrong with getting a suspect a meal while he's being interrogated to get cooperation. Shame on the media for omitting information for sensationalism.

    So...is the Burger King meal considered police brutality, cruel and unusual punishment, or 'an advanced interrogation technique?'

    No it says a lot about the media feeding into people's preconceived notions.

    They didn't stop the squad car at the drive thru while giving high fives.

    When he was being interrogated, he asked for food and they got it for it. It is a common thing to do in interrogations, especially with high profile offenders.

    I guarantee you the police were hoping this guy was non-compliant. Beating the dog out of him would have been highly enjoyable after what he did.

    Instead, he did what they said and was polite... perfect way to not get your a$$ kicked by the police.

    I have multiple cop friends and they all train in self defense. All of them are more than happy to show off their skills on a non-compliant perp.

    Not kicking somebodies a$$ after all that training is kind of like getting an electric guitar and learning to play AC-DC but never plugging into an amplifier.

    Does not compute! Kill 9 people and cooperate with the cops... you dont get your ass kicked.

    Get pulled over under suspicion, act like an ******* and wonder why you get pulverized?

    I dont understand why so many news sources are picking this up. Jails don't have cafeterias to feed the prisoners. Are they suppose to starve them?

    I agree with this. Reminds me of the "The Fugitive" scene where Chicago PD was questioning the guy who said he knew Kimble was in his apartment; they're eating cheeseburgers. :eek:

    I don't understand, are they not supposed to feed suspects food or something? He said he was hungry during interrogation so they got him some fast food.

    I mean they even feed people in death row, what exactly is the problem here.

    You should probably take your own advice first and foremost.

    The difference in tactics when a perp complies vs. attacking the officer and not complying.

    I don't think there is a problem, it just made me laugh because it is ironic.

    I know some cops and they tell me that yeah, if they don't like someone they might rough him up a bit before bringing him in. I'm sure cooperation goes a far way.

    That said, I also would not be surprised if a black guy who had just brutally murdered 9 little kids probably might not get the burger king treatment. Just a hunch.
