All eyes are now on the justice system now that Dylann Roof has been apprehended and charged with murder.
The 20-year-old domestic terrorist from South Carolina is facing nine murder charges after he allegedly slaughtered Black churchgoers with a semiautomatic handgun in a deliberate hate crate at the historic Emanuel AME Church, on the evening of June 17. The church’s surveillance video showed him walking in the church and then later leaving in his black Hyundai shortly after the murders were said to be carried out. He was tracked and arrested in Shelby, North Carolina, about 250 miles away from where the heinous acts were committed.
The Washington Post did some probing into Roof’s family background and it has been determined he was rogue loner and a bum. After dropping out of high school, he refused to get a job and spent most of his free time roaming the local Columbiana Centre mall. In February of this year, he was arrested on felony drug charges for possession of Suboxone, a drug that offsets opiate addiction. Two months later, his loser nature got him arrested again for trespassing in the mall’s parking and he was fined $262.50 for ignoring his ban from the establishment.Embed from Getty Images
Both Dylann’s sister, Amber Roof and her Army recruiter fiance, Michael Tyo, declined to be interviewed but The Washington Post did manage to talk to Carson Cowles, their uncle outside his Charleston mobile home.
Angered by what his nephew is being stood accused of doing, Cowles admitted, “I’d be the executioner myself if they would allow it.”
“The whole world is going to be looking at his family who raised this monster,” a tearful Cowles said, claiming his mother “never raised him to be like this.”
