Charleston Church Murders

Dylann Roof may have posted a racist manifesto online

Suspected Charleston shooter Dylann Roof may have posted a racist manifesto online, two Twitter users discovered Saturday. The website, which has a graphic image on its homepage, was reportedly registered by Roof, charged with nine counts of murder in a Wednesday night shooting at a historically black church.

I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.

The site also has a .zip file of images with Roof apparently holding a handgun and burning a U.S. flag.
