You gotta admit, that'd be an equally big story, if not bigger.

Now, what happens if a cop finds him unarmed and kills him... will the universe as we know it cease to exist?
The internet might. And by race baited I meant more how people are already exploiting it to shame, shun and get their name out there. Actual news sources are playing up the 60s-style racial tensions we apparently have going on right now.

Anyhow, he's been captured now - http://myfox8.com/2015/06/18/capture...-in-shelby-nc/ - and won't make it to sentencing if he's left to mix in at a South Carolina jail.

The school shooter, the theater shooter and this guy look so much the same they could almost be brothers.

The two prison escapees are now breathing a sigh of relieve. Hey, we're no longer the headline news. Public's 15 minutes attention span has now shifted.

They are all government engineered clones being used to ramp up tensions.

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

It's humorous that some find the media reporting to be race baiting. If this isn't a racial hate crime, I have no idea what is.

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

Glad they caught him so he can't do anything else stupid but at the same time i always prefer they kill him. I don't want to hear his pathetic excuses play out on TV for years..

South Carolina does have the death penalty although there's been talk recently about getting rid of it. I think those talks may be put "on hold" for a little while...

I guess the white boy didn't make it to Mexico like the other two escaped convicts, who are drinking margaritas, and chillin' on the beach.

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

This stuff makes me sick to my stomach.

And it's a sickness that happens to the point of regularity these days.

Can't wait for Obama's political jabs.

Anyone want to take a guess?

Was he a member of a terrorist group? I must be missing something.

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

Now who says bringing guns to church is crazy?
If only the victims had guns to protect themselves...
