Remember when Dylan Roof walked into a church and killed people while they were praying and the police took him to get Burger King afterwards? I think about that a lot.

This is an example of good policework, and how it should be done. Giving a suspect something they want and appearing to be their friend is an excellent way to:
1) Get more information on their motivations which can lead to
2) Finding out if they had any co-conspirators or other plans were about to kick off which then leads to
3) Preventing other possible mass shooting or exposing a network, if they had any, and gaining the info necessary to convict them or others who may have aided them
We shouldn’t be criticizing police for working the right way, but rather for encouraging that sort of procedure even when the suspect is brown or black.
