The more that comes out about what his friends knew, the more you want to jack-slap the idiots.
Friend of Dylann Roof says he planned attack on College of Charleston.
A black friend of the white man accused of murdering nine people at a Charleston church says the suspect told him a week prior to the killings that he planned to shoot up a local college campus.
Christon Scriven, a drinking buddy of Dylann Roof, told The Associated Press Friday that he thought Roof’s statements were just drunken bluster. However, Scriven said that he was concerned enough that he and another friend, Joey Meek, went out to take his .45-caliber gun, hiding it in an air-conditioning vent of a mobile home until they all sobered up.
“He just said he was going to hurt a bunch of people” at the College of Charleston,” said Scriven, 22.
“I said, ‘What did you say? Why do you want to hurt those people in Charleston?'”
“He just said, ‘In seven days. … I have seven days.'”
Why in the fuck didn’t Scriven report this?
And of course, Roof published the requisite ‘manifesto’:
A racist manifesto and a collection of photos suspected to have been written and posted by alleged Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof was discovered online.
The white man who faces nine counts of murder for allegedly opening fire in a historically African-American church in South Carolina on Wednesday apparently left a screed of his racist beliefs – and dozens of photos of himself posing with the Confederate flag and symbols tied to white supremacist groups.
……The rambling text says that the event that “truly awakened” its author was the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. It describes what appears to be Roof’s racist ideology and motivations for allegedly killing nine African-Americans at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
……Here are some excerpts from the text, which includes sections on blacks, Jews, Hispanics, East Asians and Patriotism:
On African-Americans: “Say you were to witness a dog being beat by a man. You are almost surely going to feel very sorry for that dog. But then say you were to witness a dog biting a man. You will most likely not feel the same pity you felt for the dog for the man. Why? Because dogs are lower than men. This same analogy applies to black and White relations.”
On Jews: “Unlike many White naitonalists [sic], I am of the opinion that the majority of American and European jews are White. In my opinion the issues with jews is not their blood, but their identity.”
On Hispanics: “Hispanics are obviously a huge problem for Americans. But there are good hispanics and bad hispanics.”
On Asians: I have great respent [sic] for the East Asian races. Even if we were to go extinct they could carry something on. They are by nature very racist and could be great allies of the White race.
On the United States: “I hate the sight of the American flag. Modern American patriotism is an absolute joke. People pretending like they have something to be proud while White people are being murdered daily in the streets.”
On that note, he also burned the Stars and Stripes to show just how much he hates patriotism:
On Charleston: “I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.”
His friends probably knew about this as well, but blew it off.
Looks like somebody put a bowl on his head and cut around it. Just sayin’
From Fox News.
Dylann Roof has confessed to opening fire two days ago inside a historically black church in South Carolina, killing nine people, a source close to the investigation told Fox News on Friday.
Roof, 21, was charged with nine counts of murder and one count of weapon possession in connection with Wednesday night’s mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. Authorities say Roof walked into a Bible study class at the church, stayed until the session was about to end, then began shooting.
Roof was arrested Thursday in North Carolina and extradited back to South Carolina ahead of a scheduled Friday bond hearing.
……Surveillance video showed Roof entering the church at approximately 8:15 p.m. local time, 50 minutes before police said they received the first call about the shooting. The Charleston Post and Courier newspaper reported that the Bible study group had been examining passages from the Gospel according to Mark. However, law enforcement officials told The Washington Post that Roof sat quietly and declined to take part in any discussion.
……Sylvia Johnson, a cousin of Emanuel’s murdered pastor, state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, told NBC News that Roof said as he started shooting, “I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.” Witnesses said Roof shot his victims at close range, stopping to reload several times.
……Joseph Meek Jr. said he and Roof had been best friends in middle school but lost touch when Roof moved away about five years ago. The two reconnected a few weeks ago after Roof reached out to Meek on Facebook, Meek said.
Roof never talked about race years ago when they were friends, but recently made remarks out of the blue about the killing of unarmed black 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida and the riots in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Meek said.
“He said blacks were taking over the world. Someone needed to do something about it for the white race,” Meek said, adding that the friends were getting drunk on vodka. “He said he wanted segregation between whites and blacks. I said, ‘That’s not the way it should be.’ But he kept talking about it.”
Dalton Tyler, Roof’s roommate, told ABC News that Roof had been “planning something like [the shooting] for six months.”
“He was big into segregation and other stuff,” Tyler said. “He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.”
Tyler told The New York Times that he did not take Roof’s statements seriously.
……”I never thought he’d do something like this,” said high school friend Antonio Metze, 19, who is black. “He had black friends.”
His friends knew he was planning this, and they did nothing about it.
And doncha know, Roof is a deranged homeless derelict who used psychotic drugs.
From CBS News.
A law enforcement source told CBS News that at the time of the shooting, Roof was essentially homeless. He had no fixed address, and moved from place to place. The FBI is interviewing his parents.
……School records show that between fourth and ninth grade, Roof attended six different schools, and repeated the ninth grade.
Since January, Roof has been arrested twice, both at the Columbiana Mall in Columbia, S.C. According to arrest records obtained CBS News investigative producer Laura Strickler, on February 28, Roof went into a Bath and Body Works store wearing all black and asked “out of the ordinary questions,” including how many associates were working, when they closed and what time they leave. Mall employees complained and when an officer approached him Roof said “his parents were pressuring him to get a job.”
The officer noted that Roof was becoming increasingly nervous. He searched Roof and found “orange strips” that Roof said were “suboxone,” a Schedule 3 narcotic. Roof was arrested and his 2000 Hyundai Elantra was towed.
He was banned from the mall for one year. But on April 26, he returned and was arrested for trespassing and banned from the mall for three years. His car was turned over to his mother.
Roof was a fucking disaster waiting to happen. Like Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner, James Holmes, Joseph Andrew Stack, and Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The common denominator: All of them had serious psychopathic and sociopathic tendencies. All of them made specific threats and exhibited behavior in front of their families and friends that should have resulted in intervention by authorities and psychologists. No one took action. His lawyer will plead the insanity defense and he’ll spend the rest of his miserable life in prison or in a mental hospital. Just take him out and execute him with his own gun.
Obama took the opportunity (as usual) to rant about ‘gun control’:
……Obama on Thursday linked gun control to the Charleston church shooting in his first statement on Thursday, saying the nation needed to “come to grips” with the issue in the wake of the massacre that killed nine people.
“At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency,” Obama said. “And it is in our power to do something about it.”
……Obama referred again to the shooting Thursday evening at a Los Angeles fundraiser hosted by actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry.“To see such a horrific event unfold like that is particularly shocking,” he said, “and it’s a reminder that we’ve got a lot of work to do.”
Obama also called on the 250 event attendees, which included “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner and star January Jones and former NBA player Jason Collins, to act for the change they wanted.
“If you’re dissatisfied that every few months we have a mass shooting in this country killing innocent people, then I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency that says this is not normal and we are going to change it and put pressure to elect people who insist on that change,” he said to sustained applause.
This is coming from an asshole who lets dangerous criminal illegal aliens into the country and releases them by the thousands into our streets. He also conveniently ignores the black-on-black gang violence in all major cities, and the black on white hate crimes, with equal indifference.
B. Hussein sat in a pew at the Trinity United Church of Christ where Jeremiah Wright goddamned America, preached Black Liberation Theology and railed against ‘whitey’ and Jews.
This is really about a nutbag who killed nine people, but they’ll make it a ‘gun control’ debate.
The bottom line is this: If some psychopathic shitbag wants to grab a gun and kill people there’s little you can do to stop it, unless you have a weapon to shoot back. Banning guns won’t impress criminals; they’ll just be the only ones to have them. The asshole politicians who bitch about gun control usually have armed security details and live in upscale residential areas where crime isn’t much of an issue.
And *surprise* Loretta Lynch announced that she’ll be investigating this as a ‘hate crime’. When it comes to monitoring real hate crime in his own administration, Obama’s as blind as a fucking bat. Former DHS employee and black supremacist Ayo Kimathi, was finally fired after years of venting his racist spleen on a site called “War on the Horizon”, which calls for a race war against whites. The site is still up and running its campaign. Not a peep out of the Obama regime.
The New Black Panthers could use some scrutiny. For years, they’ve been preaching about their planned race war against whitey.
After they’re finished milking this for all the publicity and faux outrage they can get, they’ll crawl back into the woodwork.
