If we're lucky the kid will off himself and save us some tax money. People like him have no business living.

Reminds me of that quote, "Life is wasted on the living"

And what's up with the jacket he was wearing?

And then people use this nutcase as an example of why guns are bad. Happens every time one crazy person ends up on the news.

Generally dont think this is a lone crazy person. The area had a history of racist terror groups and the target was a senator. My guess is this is an organized terror attack or he was a dude who splintered off from a hate group to kill people either way I doubt its just "crazy person".

I'm glad the media is at least keeping things generally respectful. There's a hole in the Christian community right now and I can't imagine the hole in SC in general.

The black inmates likely won't show pity on him.

I live in South Carolina, and have friends who are staying in a dormitory right around the corner from the shooting. (Incidentally, the pastor was also a state senator, in case any of you didn't know). It's definitely not being swept under the rug, as it's getting a lot of attention on social media and in the city itself, but everyone has reached the point of acknowledging that this needs to stop. Yes, racism still exists in Southern states. No, that's not okay, and people need to stop ignoring it.

And the hole in the black community is probably the most important ... since that was the motivation behind the attack.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -
A bullet went through the back door at St. Matthew Missionary Baptist Church in the 2100 block of Pendleton leaving many unanswered questions Thursday.

This is the second shooting at a black church in less than 24 hours after this one.

its very sad. i think it was just some guy who wanted to make a statement. im not sure id go as far as calling him a terrorist. makes you think was it worth rioting during those protests for unarmed black people being killed
