    Nine dead in church shooting in Charleston

    The details are still coming in; it's reported that some sick bastard walked into a church in Charleston and started shooting people. Nine are reported dead; police are searching for the gunman.

    And as of this writing the suspect is still at large. They've got photos of him and his car, so hopefully he will be in custody soon. It's bizarre to me that you can kill 9 people and then just step away and blend into the background...

    It's bizarre to me that someone would be so evil to kill people while they pray. Some people think it's race related. Reckon? I hope they find him and sic it to em.

    One of the dead is the pastor, the Rev. Clemente Pinckney, a state senator. Ooops.


    According to news reports, quoting a survivor, the killer told his victims that “You rape all our women and you’re taking over our country and you have to go.’”
    The rampage is being treated as a hate crime, as it should be.
    But it's okay to walk into a church and blast nine people off the earth. M'kay.

    Which explains why he shot women. His uncle said Dylann was given a 45 caliber gun for his birthday. 'cause who wouldn't look at that face and decide a high powered handgun was the perfect gift?

    ETA: He has possibly been picked up in a traffic stop. This news feed says one of the survivors is a 5 yr old girl who played dead.

    Glad they caught him. Hopefully whoever gave him that haircut will also be brought to justice.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. It'll get talked about. NRA will give their tried and true guns don't kill people spiel. Liberals will whine and cry. Nothing will get done. The End.

    Let's hope so - maybe they'll even make it illegal to murder people. That should put a stop to this kind of stuff.

    A guy at work said he read that the shooter was actually a member of that church; that he sat through a prayer meeting and then started shooting people. I haven't seen that mentioned anywhere yet but I haven't had time to read much about it.

    Would be nice, but I'm not counting on that. Check this story out from my hometown. http://www.thespec.com/news-story/56...uary-shooting/ At that age the only thing I had on me was a pack of smokes and a brush for my hair ! As for this Roof guy, hang the bastard as soon as possible.

    The parents are to blame also. You know when your kid ain't right. Social shaming may keep you from admitting it but you do not give a gun to a kid that looks like that. especially the Moe Howard haircut. He was sane enough to target a Black church and methodically wait for an opportune time. He is sane enough to face murder charges as an adult.

    Highly doubt it. If the massacre of 20 small school children didn't do it, nothing will. This little bastard should have at least put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger one last time, that would be preferable as to what's in store for his miserable short life in prison...

    That little sawed-off prick told the cops he almost changed his mind about shooting them - because they were kind to him.

    I do not believe the parents are to blame, Just as I feel that the Kelbold and Harris families are not to blame. If that were the case I would have been a mass murderer myself, from all the crap my bio parents put me through and my parents now had no clue of the depression, anxiety, panic attacks, ptsd and such that I have, I hid it and I hid the fact that I had anger issues.

    The reason I blame the parents is because they gave him the high powered firearm that he used to commit murder. If your kid has issues a gun is not the answer.

    Guns are not to blame. Drugs are not to blame. The kids' parents are not to blame. The guy who walked into a church and killed people is to blame. He's the only one to blame. Disagree with this if you want, but if one person in that church had a gun, this little asshole would be dead now and maybe some of the deceased would still be alive. When you create laws against guns, only law abiding citizens will be affected. The killers will still kill people.

    I don't think his father gave him the gun. From what I've read he received money for his birthday and bought the gun himself. But who knows.

    Absolutely, I agree with you 100%. It doesn't have to be just a gun, a knife, baseball bat, whatever, people will still kill.

    What I am very heartened at is the behavior and reaction to the murders by the people of Charleston at large. No protests that I'm aware of, no rioting, no burning of businesses, no Ferguson. This is an object lesson. The governor, Nikki Haley, a Republican, becoming emotional during her initial comments. I've heard later she stated that she hopes the perp gets the death penalty.

    On the spiritual side, when the victims were allowed to make statements to the perp during arraignment (I understand he could not see them but could hear them speak to him), told him of what he had done and their grief but they forgave him and urged him to repent. Those folks shown a Godly example. Those folks could say such things because they know where their friends and loved ones are now, in Paradise, with their God in perfect bodies, free of earthly troubles and trials for eternity.

    In that respect, death did not win in Charleston.

    The NRA has blamed the dead pastor because he didn't allow firearms in his church. These shootings always show who the bad people are. Whether it's schools or churches. The people that care more about guns than they do the dead people are the bad guys. Very simple litmus test for me.

    I'm thinking a bible study of people could have unarmed him of the weapons you named before he killed 9 people. A gun is much easier to kill with. A knife would have killed 2 at the most. Probably none.

    I doubt this church wants to drag out anything for donations. Has there been some implication that the church is doing that?

    Then you clearly did not understand my post. If someone approaches you with a gun and wants to shoot you, the last thing they expect is that you're not going to be able to produce a weapon and PROTECT YOURSELF. They expect you to be a sheep and just allow them to kill you. What's wrong with self defense? Isn't it already painfully obvious that no matter what the law is, the bad guys will do whatever the fuck they want? They don't abide by the law. I think I should be allowed to protect myself but I'll do so within the guidelines of the law, which is guy I'm glad there are concealed handgun laws that allow me to do that.

    Bless you too darlin. Guns are never going away and I didn't make the world this way. I just don't understand the mindset of people who only want criminals carrying them.

    Like both pots. The reason I wear oversized loud print shirts in the summer is so no one can see what's on the back of my belt. I ignore all those signs that say you can't carry a weapon in. So do the bad guys. Banks and Churches are an exception. Oklahoma is trying to pass a law that businesses can no longer ban a licensed conceal carry patron from having their weapon with them. Plus, Holy sheep dip! How much did this punk get in cash for his birthday? That is not a cheap weapon he is holding.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
