Some negative commentary has been made about the Shelby Police Department's decision to buy a Burger King meal for Roof after his arrest. However, first of all, people in custody HAVE TO BE FED! Regardless the crime, police can not starve a prisoner. Secondly, buying a meal for a prisoner is a valuable law enforcement tool for extracting a confession. The scared & bewildered arrestee now sees the officer as his provider and is much more likely to take them into their confidence and give them a confession. If the $10 BK meal was the leverage to get a confession and seal up this case, it was money well spent.
