Kill someone, casually snack on their food
This usually crops up in crime dramas as a way to show how cold-blooded a killer is. The victim comes home with an armload of groceries and is brutally ambushed. After the deed, the murderer will stoop to pick up a dropped food item, usually an apple, and take a bite as they calmly leave the scene. Most recently, this appeared in an episode of "Boardwalk Empire" to illustrate the violent and callous nature of a young Al Capone.
