    Must be a helluva sandwich.

    Maryland police: Man fatally stabbed over Popeyes sandwich


    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Nov 5th 2019 6:03AM

    OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — A man fatally stabbed another customer outside of a Maryland Popeyes restaurant in a fight over the recently rereleased chicken sandwich, police say.

    The two men were waiting in line at an Oxon Hill Popeyes on Monday night when one of the men accused the other of cutting in front of him in a line specifically for ordering chicken sandwiches, Prince George's County police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan told news outlets. The fight then spilled outside where one of the men stabbed the other, according to police.

    The 28-year-old victim was from the Washington area, police say. He was taken to a hospital, where he died less than an hour later.

    Police are still looking for the suspect and have called on him to surrender, Donelan added.

    The victim and the suspect's identities haven't been released.

    Popeyes resumed selling its chicken sandwich on Sunday. First released Aug. 12, the chain credited popular demand to its supply selling out by the end of that month. It's also been credited with causing long lines and hourslong waits across the county.

    has nothing to do with the Sandwich and has everything to do with their targeted demographic. You ever seen a Church's chicken in a nice neighborhood? Popeyes are pretty much the same.

    It’s in Maryland, if they weren’t gonna fight over a sandwich they’d be fighting over sneakers or some perceived affront to their view of themselves.

    short version, don’t care.

    When I lived in Norfolk the two were right across the street from each other. We didn't go to that area of town if it could be avoided at all.

    Derrick Lewis apparently has the Popeyes Black Card. He gets to eat free at any Popeyes. They even brought him in to try the sandwich a month before released.

    Don't think anyones gonna start stuff over his Popeyes sandwich!

    I do love and support my local chick filet, never had an issue or a messed up order. However, I don't like them enough to get myself shot or stabbed over standing I line for one. They must be good.

    So if they catch the guy, and he gets sentenced to death for murder, do you think for his last meal he will ask for a Popeyes chicken sandwich?:D

    Popeye's is pretty good as far as chicken goes. It's a little spendy considering their demographic. Service is usually subpar.

    The stabbing was a test to see how many people would get banned from news comments and forums.

    I go to Popeye's twice a week here in Garner/Raleigh. The Troopers, Deputies and local PD eat there.
    Never had any problems with fellow customers.

    Imagine the service you would receive at the most ghetto Burger King you could find and them serving chicken that really ain't no better than Publix, but is somehow twice as expensive.

    Ain't nobody stabbing folks over chicken, they're stabbing folks over dumbass ghetto sh*thole culture, which is only becoming more acceptable in our society, and apparently can only be broached in hushed tones lest we be considered bigots for noticing the demographic that so disproportionately represents this dumbass behavior.

    Tried it and was under impressed. It was a bigger sandwich and tasted good but I still prefer Chick-fila. Sadly my younger son is allergic to peanut so he can't eat the good stuff from chick fila. I'm going to take the kids to Popeyes for lunch tomorrow. But if there's a line of cars waiting, we'll go to the Pit downtown.

    Given the size of that “gentleman”, I’m thinkin’ attempted manslaughter is the appropriate charge.

    Another prime example of media induced hysterical frenzy.
    They got people so worked up with their Clickbait headlines...

    Now that was very unnecessary. Should have locked up most of that crew. If the lady was at fault they should have let the local police handle her.

    Wild, he slammed her so hard.
    Curious what happened between the first video and the second
    Ridiculous what happened to her.

    Any word on what started the whole screaming match inside?

    With all the videos of popeyes employees doing extremely stupids things, how has that franchise stayed in business from the prevailing lawsuits?

    You gonna get banned!


    I've nothing against race, just dumbass culture that can't dare be criticized under the guise of 'racism'

    I have a few black friends (well to do and successful), and the nonsense they share with me about what they endure from their hoodrat families because they dared to get out of the damn ghetto is depressing. Like not living in public housing and having a job somehow makes them less black.

    If you Google it, there's another video of a welfare queen trashing her Benz trying to cut off a white woman at a popeyes drive thru.

    Geez. Regardless of color, if I was body slammed like that, the physical aggressor would be properly ventilated.

    New Popeyes opened in Winston and we do their trash. Driver calls me at 9am on Friday can’t get in the parking lot. Cars lined up in the drive thru out into the street, people lined up around the building waiting to get in. They don’t open until 11. Does no one actually work anymore?
