— Police in Greenville say they have apprehended a Wilson man wanted for questioning in the deaths of two South Carolina bank employees, according to WITN.

Conway, S.C., police had identified Brandon Michael Council, 32, of Wilson, as a person of interest in the robbery.

Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman said someone saw Council driving on South Memorial Drive. An officer pulled the car over, but Council fled on foot. He was caught by officers a short time later, according to Holtzman.

Two people who were with Council at the time have been detained, the chief said.

    "Yea, I can see 'criminal' tattooed on his forehead. It's the culture. They want whatever they want, to come free and easy and don't care about the lives of anyone else."
    "only [WLM]
    where is all the outrage?
    Guess it doesn't work that way"
    "They're all out [rallying to save Confederate] statues. No time to worry about one of their brothers killing and living the life of crime. I'm sure Silent Sam told him to do it."
    See how that works both ways?

    From now on, I'm going to pick out random news stories about white people committing heinous crimes and post blatantly racist comments about how that particular criminal is representative of the entire Caucasian 'race' and culture. Then I'm going to pretend, based on no evidence whatsoever, that they are a right-wing conservative and a member of the white supremacist movement.

    Oh look! There's a perfect candidate right down the page! Funny, no comments at all about how what a POS this guy is... I wonder why? http://www.wral.com/florida-white-man-who-killed-black-person-to-be-executed/16899453/

    Look again Charles - it's mainly young Caucasians out protesting the statues. BLM are protesting injustice to blacks being killed by police. Now, I am not saying I totally support BLM but please get it right. Turn on the news - I see more WHITE people that blacks at these statue protests (on both sides)

    They're all out tearing down statues. No time to worry about one of their brothers killing and living the life of crime. I'm sure Silent Sam told him to do it.

    Yea, I can see "criminal" tattooed on his forehead. It's the culture. They want whatever they want, to come free and easy and don't care about the lives of anyone else. With any luck, this guy will want to fight the cops when they catch up with him and they can go ahead and rid this world of him. No one wants or needs this dude.
