Alleged Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Has Pleaded Not Guilty To All Charges

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

Dylann Roof has pleaded not guilty.

The accused gunman in last month's tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina has pleaded not guilty to all federal charges.

According to authorities, Dylann Roof had confessed to shooting and killing nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 18.

The alleged murderer's lawyer admitted that the 21-year-old actually wanted to plead guilty to all 33 federal charges. However, the attorney said he couldn't allow his client to do so.

The counsel explained that he couldn't advise Dylann since the government is still deciding whether or not it will seek the death penalty for his accused crimes.

We hope that whatever the government decides, justice is served on behalf of all the victims and their families. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.

The Charleston Shooting Almost Didn't Happen & Here's The Tragic Reason Why It Did

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

Nine people didn't have to die in Charleston.

According to the FBI, Dylann Roof should have FAILED his background check due to his prior arrest for drug possession. The charge would have barred the killer from purchasing the gun that tragically ended the lives of innocent people.

So, how did this awful mistake happen?

The bureau attributes the gaffe to a clerical error, claiming that a NICS agent who performed the background check on the 21-year-old shooter was unable to determine which county the arrest had been made in and whether the gunman had been convicted of the crime.

The investigation into the perp unfortunately took longer than three days — and law says that you can sell a gun to someone if the background check takes longer than three days to complete.

Um, what?! How can that law even be a thing?! We're not sure even who to blame in this terrible situation — is it the FBI's fault for not processing the check sooner or is it this law?!

A spokesperson for the FBI stated:

"This rips all of our hearts out and we are all sick this happened."

Agreed. It's sickening and it never should've happened!

Ugh. We can't even begin to imagine how the families must feel upon hearing this news… so sad.

Charleston Shooter's Sister Wants You To Pay For Her Honeymoon After Her Brother's Murderous Rampage Overshadowed Her Dream Wedding

no title

It's all about perspective, ya know?

While most people are aware that the worst thing Dylann Roof did with his life was murder nine innocent people in cold blood, his sister Amber thinks he committed an even worse atrocity…

He made her cancel her dream wedding!

You see, Dylann's Charleston Church shooting took place just four days before his 27-year-old sister was set to wed her now-husband Michael Tyo, but because of the media storm, she decided it would be safest to just forgo the whole event.

Well, Amber was just so heartbroken that she had to cancel her big day, she thought it'd be a great idea to set up a GoFundMe page to get other people to pay for her honeymoon.

The page managed to raise $1,600 before it was taken down and in Amber's defense, she was going to donate 10% of the money to the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, but still… we think there are some people in her neighborhood who could have used the money just a little bit more than she.

Having to cancel your wedding because of your brother's psychopathic tendencies/murders does kind of stink, but so does, ya know, dying.

Go fund yourself, Amber.

Charleston Shooter's Identity Revealed — He Attended Bible Study With His Victims Before The Hate Crime Shooting

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadViolence

This is incredibly tragic.

Last night, shooter Dylann Roof killed six women and three men at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, and police are releasing more details about him so people can help catch him.

The despicable person is described as a 21-year-old, standing 5'9", and according to Charleston police Chief Greg Mullen:

"He has on a very distinctive sweatshirt as well as the vehicle, with a very distinctive license plate. This is a very dangerous individual. He should not be approached by anyone. Call law enforcement if you recognize the individual or the car so we can take appropriate action."

In a gross turn of events, the sick shooter sat in the Bible study for an hour before opening fire. One woman said he explained he was letting her live so that she could tell people about what happened there.

This is now rightly being labeled as a hate crime.

If you have any information, here's what you should do:
