(News) Man gets stabbed to death over Popeyes chicken sandwich
Written by: NeoPGX - 19:20 Nov-06-2019

"UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — A man who had been cutting in a line for chicken sandwiches at a crowded Popeyes restaurant in Maryland was stabbed to death by another customer who confronted him, police said Tuesday.

Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski appealed for the public’s help in identifying the man who fatally stabbed 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis once after their argument spilled outside the Oxon Hill restaurant Monday evening.

Stawinski, who called it a “pointless crime,” said only 15 seconds elapsed from when the altercation started to when it ended with the stabbing. Davis had been “methodically” cutting his way through the line for sandwiches for 15 minutes before the suspect confronted him at the front counter, the chief said.

“The question my detectives have to answer is, ‘How does a confrontation lead to a homicide in 15 seconds?’” Stawinski told reporters outside a police station in Upper Marlboro. “The family of the individual who was killed is looking for closure. The families and children who were in this restaurant are looking for closure.”

Popeyes resumed selling its chicken sandwich on Sunday. It was first released in August, and the chain credited popular demand to its supply selling out that month. Marketing around the sandwich has built a frenzy that’s causing long lines and waits at the chain’s restaurants. Stawinski said dozens of people were at the restaurant at the time."

Must have been one hell of a sandwich.


Oh and I can't wait for them to blame it on video games, movies, music or whatever else the media loves to blame for the actions of people as if people can't be responsible for their own actions. People are inherently bad so it should be expected of them to harm others.

To "throw away the key" is basically saying the inmate should be kept in prison for life. Hence they are technically throwing away the key since they would never be released anyway.
