Another Critical Thinking Moment, Debunking the Bunk

Hi, everyone! We have another story of a ignorant gun nut doing a mass shooting. We have another group of black people targeted and murdered in a terrorist type attack by said random ignorant gun nut that happened to be White.
NO Big Deal? . Then read this:

Dylann Storm Roof walked into a church in Charleston, South Carolina and killed nine people with a handgun. Immediately the rightwing media started spouting ignorant deflections from the truth, talking about how this was an attack on religion. Today I am going to debunk this argument using the facts known at this time.

1) Dylann is from Eastover, SC. The historically black church he terrorized was in Charleston, SC, at least 1 hr 40 min and at least 98.1 miles away.

2) If he just wanted to attack a church, there are at least 7 Christian churches in or at least near Eastover, SC., that would have been a lot closer without having to drive to where he started out at.

3) He had all the trappings of a racist in the South. a) He had a rebel flag license plate on his car. b) He reportedly made racist jokes frequently. c) He stated he was a racist and that this was racially motivated. d) when he walked into the church, he stated that, "They are raping our women and taking over our country." e) he reportedly told some of his friends on Facebook that he was attending meetings at a white supremacist Christian hate church. f) Last and not least, the DOJ started an investigation into the mass shooting as a "hate crime".

Remember when the Colorado theater shooter was said to be a member of the Tea Party? Everything I am telling you is part of the stories that made sense and came out through different news sources, including the police in the town of Shelby, NC. As usual, the news is always struggling to get the story out first, which can lead to inaccuracy but I will keep you informed as to updates. The last information I got was these last two notes.

"...UPDATE 11:42 am: Charleston police chief Gregory Mullen and the FBI have also confirmed Roof’s arrest. Roof was arrested during a traffic stop in Shelby, NC."

"...UPDATE 11:57 am: Roof was arrested after a citizen called police to report a suspicious vehicle, according to police. Roof was “cooperative” during his arrest."
