I think he planned to murder 15 people, then stuff chik fil a’s in their mouths. Then he could’ve gotten off after filing a grant with the NEA for “Homicidal Art”.
It's for the children, after all.
Murder can never be sanctioned but I do see how the artistic aspect would definitely warranta grant if done “tastefully” at lest as tasty as the sandwiches. A panel of liberal artistes would make the decision in a blind taste test, not only grant him a defense but a grant as well.
You are absolutely right on this one, gummint should ensure that no fast food bag can hold more than a single sandwich............and of course... no bacon!!
I don’t know but this thread is making me hungry for Chik-fil-A sandwiches that’s for sure.
The libtard nutjob intended on leaving those sandwches behind with his victims, similar to death cards used during the Vietnam War. Imagine my shock that the corrupt media conveniently leaves this fact out of the story... or even the story itself.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm....... I really, really didn’t need to see that.
Thanks a lot.
My wife, who is really well informed about current events, knew absolutely nothing about this case when I mentioned it to her yesterday. It has already disappeared from the MFM radar, if it was ever on it.
Almost certainly he brought them with him as an excuse to get past security: “hey I’m here to deliver this food?”.
Also - perhaps in his warped mind he was planning to give out the chicken and kill those who accepted.
"Fair Manner" seems to be defined differently by different groups. It now means to drop all your convictions and accept mine (whatever it is) unconditionally, else you're a hate-monger!
Sorry, I don't accept the definition or the label...
If he had Chick-Fil-A sandwiches that proves that he was a gun-loving Muslim-hating right-wing teabagger extremist homophobe, and he attacked a pro-life group because they weren’t far enough to the right to suit him.
I read this in the New York Times. /s
He will beat the other charges and get life for carrying 15 Chick Fil A sandwich’s.
Its a crime to order 15 Chick- Fil-A sandwiches !!!!!
Could never eat more than 3 at a sitting.....
I usually ask for extra pickles!
It does look good, doesn't it?
Until now, it was just reported as CFA “materials”.
Big Media couldn’t bring themselves to report any further at the time.
FU Big media and your stupid anti-American messiah!
Don’t think you will get your curly fries there. Maybe waffle fries.
