CHARLESTON, S.C. – Dylann Roof, the man charged with shooting and killing nine people in an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, this week, appears to have written and published a manifesto and cache of photographs that detail a violent, hateful ideology. Dylann Roof was posing in photographs with a handgun and standing in front of a Confederate military museum and plantation slave houses. FBI agents are reviewing the manifesto linked to Dylann Roof.
A friend of Dylann Roof, the man charged with fatally shooting said if he had any idea what the 21-year-old was planning he would have stopped him although it was reported that Dylann Roof said he wanted to “Do something crazy” before the Charleston killings.
Days after the attack at the black church, grief hangs in the air, hundreds of protesters rally and walked down the streets of Charleston, chanting “Black lives matter” and “We can’t take it no more.” The peaceful march complied with police requests to reroute and ended as planned at the Daughters of the Confederacy. A small group of parishioners was allowed inside where the shooting took place the bullet-scarred Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church on Saturday, getting a firsthand glimpse of the room where nine people from their congregation were slain.
In my view and the staff at News Spoiler, all lives matter, no matter what color your skin. We are all in this together and if some un educated or mentally incapacitated person commits an act such as this, we must all stand together no matter the color of skin.
