Sadly, I can’t think of a truer metaphor for current day America than this story.
A man was stabbed to death outside a Maryland Popeyes in a fight over the chain’s popular fried chicken sandwich, police said.
A spokeswoman for the Prince George’s Police Department said the 28-year-old, who has not been identified, was killed at a restaurant in Oxon Hill, outside Washington D.C.
A fight began after someone cut in line, spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said.
Forget about politics, parties, Trump, etc. This says something about us.
That people have enough rage to kill somebody over a sandwich order tells you all you need to know about a lack of personal control combined with the selfishness that I’m afraid defines so much about what our society is like these days. No, it’s not everybody, but it seems like it’s a lot more than it used to be. I mean, are you surprised by the story?
Christ, this is depressing.
