On June 17, a young, white male gunman opened fire inside a predominantly black Charleston church, killing at least nine people who gathered inside for a prayer group. The man identified as the shooter—21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof—was apprehended 14 hours later in North Carolina.
But if he was Black it would have been a different story:
A Black Man with a long criminal record of drug possession with possible ties to terrorist organizations and/or street gangs killed 9 innocent people at a Church in Charleston. The 21-year-old was shot 114 times by Police while seated in the vehicle after he refused to show identification 14 hours later in North Carolina.
Well since he is not black we researched some facts about this Terrorist Murderous drug dealing white supremacist.
He was a Criminal with a record:
Arrested for felony drug possession and once for trespassing. Via the New York Times:
He was reportedly out on bond for the felony drug charge at the time of the shooting.
He’s Openly Racist:
His license plate has three Confederate flags on it.
He Told People He Was Planning a Massacre
According to the New York Daily News, Roof told friends he was planning a massacre—but they say they thought he was joking because he had a “deadpan sense of humor.”
He had a Message to the Blackmen at the Church.
“You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”
He was not thrown to the ground, kicked, punched, tasered, pepper sprayed, or shot:
Roof managed to elude capture for almost 14 hours following the shooting. He was finally apprehended around 11 a.m., 250 miles from Charleston.
EXTRA: One of the 9 killed was Reverend Clementa Pinckney, a South Carolina state Senator and the pastor of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina
