This was last night, not exactly Breaking.

But yes, it's horrible, a senator / pastor and 8 others are dead, and another skinny white guy with a bowl cut has committed mass murder.

I'm utterly baffled as to wtf is wrong with people.

Horrible news. Reverend Pinckney (the most prominent victim; he was also a State Senator) was apparently a friend of a friend -- or, at least, an acquaintance of a friend. From all accounts, Reverend Pinckney was a good man, as were (I'm sure) the other victims.

I hope they find the guy who did this quickly and without further loss of life or injury.

It's time to start putting people to death quicker for crimes like these. Trial - sentencing phase - then review by independent panel. If upheld - you are shot in the head immediately.

And there needs to stop being reporting on it too. Notoriety is part of the reason these psychopaths do what they do. Sensationalist journalism is as much the problem as anything else. That an pure psychotic mentally deranged fuckwads like this guy.

I changed the thread title to reflect that, and also corrected the spelling of 'Charleston.'

I hope they catch this guy quickly - really there's nothing more cowardly than going into a place of worship and shooting people.

Looks like they've already identified him and are searching his mother's house. I'm sure it's only a matter of a few hours until they catch him.

They are saying he spent an hour at a prayer meeting of some sort before opening fire. I wonder if something was said that set him off or what. They are saying he left a survivor live just so she can tell what happened. :(

Well it's being reported that the shooter said “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”

If that's true then I'm not sure where else you can really go with it.

I still think it's odd he spent an hour there. If you really have hatred for people why attend a meeting with them for an hour first?

Well according to this logic, I suppose a Native American could walk into any white church in the country and do the same thing.

It's definitely a racist hate crime. There's just something in the way it's being reported by numerous sources that's... off.

I'm usually the first one to call out race baiting but this guy was allegedly a White Supremicist. Seems like his agenda was obviously race related.

Now, what happens if a cop finds him unarmed and kills him... will the universe as we know it cease to exist?

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

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.

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

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...

If he was a muslim, it would be called terrorism. But he's white so its a hate crime.

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