The Truth About Dylann Roof | Charleston Church Shooting

Published on Jun 22, 2015

Nine people are dead after a shooting that occurred on Wednesday at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The congregation, established in 1816, is one of the oldest African American churches in the United States.

Gunman Dylann Roof told the worshipers, "I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country and you have to go."

One woman was specifically spared as Roof said, “I'm not going to shoot you because I want you to tell everyone what happened.”

Authorities believe that Roof acted alone – but as we’ll soon discuss, no mass murderer truly acts alone.

Roof has now been charged with nine counts of murder and has reportedly confessed to carrying out the shootings. In discussions with investigators, he said: “I wanted to start a race war, but almost didn’t go through with it because everyone was so nice.”

On Saturday, Dylann Roof’s personal website “The Last Rhodesian” was discovered. The website featured additional photographs and a 2,500-word manifesto which explained his motivations.
