Re: Breaking- Shooting at Charlston SC Church

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.

Re: Breaking- Shooting at Charlston SC Church

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.

Re: Breaking- Shooting at Charlston SC Church

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.

Maybe Lloyd Dobbler shouldn't be your role model.

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

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.

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

Oh this whole story is massively race baited, it's what sells and news, above all else, is about ratings these days.

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?

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

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

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

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?
