IMO this young man was no full blown hating racist. A full blown hating racist doesn't associate with blacks let alone have a black drinking buddy. I believe this young man had minimal, if even that, racist beliefs. Come on people, a racist is not going to sit down in a black church being all nice and then shoot them down. IMO a real hating racist would have walked in with gun firing. I read one comment that the people killed were stupid for not rushing the kid while he reloaded 5 times. Well that sounds like a comment someone that doesn't know squat about guns would make. It doesn't take but seconds to drop an empty magazine and slip a loaded magazine back in to be firing again. I guess we are supposed to believe this kid in his planning this out didn't have extra loaded magazines with him. Yeah the kid had a pocket full of ammo and was just going to sit down in a pew and reload the empty magazine to continue shooting again. 5 times no less! Either this is BS or the kid had not planned this out ahead of time. Isn't it strange the kid chose this particular church? The pastor/senator was also anti-gun and even voted down any pro-gun bills. This pastor preached putting racism away and people should strive to get along with each other. He chose to do his visit when such a small group of people would be there in a small bible study group? The kids father supposedly gave him the 45 semi auto for his 21st birthday? OOPS! That story has now changed to the kid worked odd jobs to buy the gun himself. Typical BS! The story will be changing as this goes along. The black drinking buddy friend hid the gun because the way this kid was talking while being drunk. The kid supposedly said that he was going to shoot up a school. But then he gave the gun back to him after he sobered up. You can bet if the kid had a computer it will be removed from the house by the cops. Nobody wants known who the kid had been communicating with even months before this happened. I believe this pilot play just had its opening curtain call. Exit stage right as the curtains fall while editing for act two.
