Jurors in Charleston, South Carolina, found Dylann Roof guilty this afternoon (December 15) of all charges for killing nine Black parishioners at the city’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church last year. Roof, who demonstrated White supremacist beliefs, faced 33 federal charges, including hate crimes and weapons offenses.

    Twenty two years old and he knows how to hate
    It’s a sad life to be living

      Hate isn’t normal – it’s spoon-fed by some and swallowed by others. It’s just the easy way for most to roll.
      I’m not one who wastes time and energy on hatred. Anger, now…that’s an entirely different ball of wax!

    Ok than anger

      I guess I’ve seen people younger than he who are more hateful, so I’m not phased by it anymore. I’ve encountered his kind my entire life…and seen that sort of hate in people a decade younger than him. I encounter his kind in real life and in my online game.

      Those who choose to throw their live away in the name of “supremacy” deserve what they get – just like those who shove poison in their arms or up their noses die from it.

      Choice is choice. I don’t shed tears for him and his kind.
