Constructing a Narrative

No one is defending Dylann Roof, especially not Dylann Roof.

Against that reality, it is all the more fascinating to watch FBI agents use leading questions about what Roof’s opinions “must have been” — what ideas he had, what material he read, what movies he watched, what he read, how he “felt”, etc..– as if such things had anything to do with anything.

Once again, no one is defending Dylann Roof, especially not Dylann Roof.

By using leading questions (i.e. projecting) FBI interviewers are literally constructing a narrative.
