The truth about Dylann Roof Confessed Killer of 9 People at AME Church, ...

Suspect Dylann Roof has allegedly confessed to killing nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina according to a law enforcement source briefed on the investigation.
Dalton Tyler, who said he has known Roof for seven months to one year, said he met Roof through a good friend. He also said Roof's parents, with whom he said the suspect was "on and off," had previously bought him a gun but never allowed him to take it with him until the week of the shootings.
It was also said that Dylann Roof purchased the .45 caliber pistol with $400 his father gave him for his birthday, other sources said.
There is loophole in federal law (backed by the NRA) that has been exploited some 15,000 times over the last five years, according to the Everytown for Gun Safety advocacy group – and that allowed Dylann Roof, the alleged Charleston gunman, to buy his weapon.
"He was big into segregation and other stuff," Tyler said. "He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself." Roof was among a dozen church members who were attending a Bible study at Emanuel AME, one of the nation's oldest African-American churches. He asked to sit next to the pastor, and about an hour into the meeting, opened fire on the people there. He killed six women and three men, including the pastor, the Rev. Clementa Pinckney. Three people survived.
Charleston County Coroner Rae Wilson said Thursday that the gunman walked into the church and didn't raise any red flags among the worshipers. "The suspect entered the group and was accepted by them, as they believed that he wanted to join them in this Bible study," she said. Then, "he became very aggressive and violent."
A survivor said that the shooter "reloaded five different times, and he just said, 'I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go."
Roof had two prior arrests earlier this year after he was stopped at a Columbia shopping mall and was found with suboxone, a type of narcotic used to treat opiate addictions, police reports show. He was taken into custody on a drug charge, and then again the following month for trespassing at the mall. Roof's uncle said that he had received a .45-caliber handgun from his father for his birthday in April.
Joseph Meek Jr. said that slaying suspect Dylann Roof recently went on a rant about the Trayvon Martin case and riots in Baltimore over the death of a black man in police custody. The two were childhood friends and recently reconnected over Facebook. "He said blacks were taking over the world. Someone needed to do something about it for the white race," Meek told the AP. "He said he wanted segregation between whites and blacks. I said, 'That's not the way it should be.' But he kept talking about it." Police said Roof was arrested today at a traffic stop in Shelby, North Carolina, about 250 miles north of Charleston.
A citizen saw the suspect's car and reported it to police, who responded and made the arrest, police said. Roof cooperated with the officer who stopped him, according to police.
He has been charged with nine counts of murder and a weapons possession charge, police said.
Roof has told police that he "almost didn't go through with it because everyone was so nice to him," And yet he decided he had to "go through with his mission." Please watch the Video, and let me know what you think.
