|| By FITSNEWS || Police in Shelby, N.C. have released the dashcam video (above) of the apprehension of 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof – the confessed perpetrator of last week’s “Holy City Massacre” in Charleston, S.C.

Identified by his family members and eventually spotted by Debbie Dills – a North Carolina florist – Roof was driving westbound on U.S. 74 in his Confederate flag-adorned black Hyundai at around 10:30 a.m. EDT on Thursday when he was stopped.

After being approached by four Shelby police officers, Roof is shown in the video being handcuffed without incident.

He later confessed to the Charleston church shooting and agreed to be extradited to South Carolina to face charges.  Chillingly, he told police he “almost didn’t go through with it because everyone (at the church) was so nice to him.”

Still, he claimed he “had go through with his mission.”

Roof is facing nine murder charges and a weapons charge related to the mass murder … which he hoped would start a “race war.”

It didn’t …

If He Were Black... June 23, 2015 at 4:58 pm

If his name were Deshaun instead of Dylann who knows what would have happened? Broken bones, gunshot wounds, face scraped on the pavement, tazed, maced, beaten… Dylann better be glad he wasn’t selling any loose cigarettes at the time!

Look what happened to the gang that beat the shit out of the white kid in 5 Points a couple years ago. All were handled with kid gloves, because cops are scared shitless of harming a black male.

Cops are scared shitless of harming a black male? There are about a thousand videos online that show otherwise. They are scared of getting caught.

If he had run or resisted I would imagine that he’d have had a much worse day. Or maybe not, who knows.

It’s amusing how desperate to keep the racial shit-stirring whipped up some folks are! Go do some quick research on how many hundreds of thousands of contacts there are between law enforcement and black folks every year, then drill down into that number to find out how many injury-producing uses of force there are. Then, subtract out the obviously extraneous data points (e.g., suspects who were shooting at officers when they were injured or killed) and you’ll find out there’s no epidemic of white officers needlessly killing black suspects. Of course, you won’t do this because the real data doesn’t likely interest you much. Shit-stirring on race evidently does, so stir on, amigo. It looks like Charleston’s not buying what you’re selling.

Actually, if you read through comments of other post concerning this issue, you begin to see a pattern with the “posters” doing the stirring. It is very obvious… they work their way down, trying to get a rise out of people. Same tiresome arguments. If you look at the race on race crime rates, one would think the education needs to start at home.

You’re right, I think, and I know better than to get bogged down in madness like that. It’s just tough to ignore stupidity and race-baiting (regardless of which side is slinging it).

On this thread you are right, but I’ve seen numerous liberals elsewhere bemoaning the fact that Roof was not roughed up or tasered, so it’s good to address if for no other reason than to get ahead of those who are serious.

There is, however, an epidemic of black on white crime.

Using some simple math, and FBI statistics of 2014 murders, 431 whites were killed by a black assailant, 193 blacks were killed by white assailants. Now at face value, that is seemingly shocking. However, when taken into context of the populations of each group, the odds of a white person being killed by a black person is 0.0001928%. The likelihood of a black person being killed by a white person is 0.0004958%. Two things here. Clearly not an epidemic. Second, can anyone recall to elementary school math (preferably pre-Common Core) and tell me which percentage is higher? If you selected black killed by white – you are correct. If you selected whites killed by blacks, you are wrong. In either case, the likelihood is so small, that in fact, it’s barely worth mentioning – let along killing 9 innocent people in a church over it.

Agreed Mike. I suspect he could have been green with antennas come out of his head and the police would have treated him the same.

Indicator that this story is winding down. But in Charleston, more statues are being vandalized and call across the nation is being made to remove all statues that honor slave owners.

Regardless, it is amazing how they knew he had murdered 9 people in cold blood, was probably armed, and yet they all put their guns away before he ever even gets out of the car.

Take another look at the video and notice a fifth officer come into the frame from the right at 1:23. Big and black. I suspect that he did not put his gun away until Roof was out of the car and braced for a search.

Don’t feel bad: MSNBC missed the black cop, too.

Anybody know what the nice officers bought Dylann at Burger King?

I’ll tell you: They bought that racist a fried chicken sandwich! Can you believe that?

Not only would those Lilly white cops NEVER buy a sandwich for any black mass murderer(like those exist!), they CERTAINLY would never do him the favor of making it fried chicken.
