America is mourning the loss of nine people killed in a shooting at a church in South Carolina.
Hours after the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, police described it as a "hate crime".
Yesterday, a day after the massacre, suspected gunman Dylann Roof was in custody, arrested in neighbouring North Carolina.
But even the manner of his arrest says a lot about race relations in the US, particularly with regards to the police.
Roof, suspected of murdering nine people in cold blood, was escorted from a building with police barely laying a finger on him. The media were kept back and Roof was even issued with a bulletproof vest.
Compare and contrast with this image of Eric Garner, a New York resident who died after being put in an illegal chokehold for 15 seconds. His suspected crime? Selling single cigarettes without tax stamps.
