Another crazy gunman again or is this some racial thing? The reports I read said that up to nine people are dead from this shooting with some others injured as well.

A daughter of Charleston church shooting victim Ethel Lance addressed Dylann Roof in court, "I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you."

Facing nine counts of murder and a weapons charge, Roof showed no emotion as he appeared by video for a hearing before Magistrate James Gosnell Jr.

"Every fiber in my body hurts, and I will never be the same," Said Felicia Sanders, the mother of victim Tywanza Sanders. "May God have mercy on you." Ref. CNN

The shooter's aim, according to some words circulating the internet, was to start a civil war between blacks and whites. He wouldn't have achieved that but this will not make things any better where there are problems it might get worst.

A website featuring a racist manifesto mentions Charleston, South Carolina, as the target of an attack and shows several images that appear to be Dylann Roof, the 21-year-old being held in the shooting deaths of nine people earlier this week at a historically black Charleston church.

The author of the manifesto describes being drawn to a white supremacist website after becoming curious about the Trayvon Martin case.

CNN has not been able to authenticate the website where the manifesto appeared, or its contents, including who wrote the manifesto and when. The website appears to have launched in February, but it surfaced on Twitter and other social media platforms today. Ref. CNN

America, Not Dylann Roof, Should Be Forgiven

In an expression of extraordinary magnanimity, relatives of the black church members murdered in Charleston, S.C., arose one after the other to tell Dylann Roof, the murderer of their loved ones, that they forgive him. That I do not agree with what they did in no way diminishes my ability to be moved by their gesture. But I do not agree with it. First, consistent with my religion, Judaism, I do not believe that anyone but the actual victim has the right to forgive someone for the evil they have inflicted. If I steal from you, you have the right to forgive me, but your best friend... Ref. Source 8j
