SISTER OF CONFESSED CHARLESTON MASSACRE PERPETRATOR YANKS FUNDRAISING SITE

|| By FITSNEWS || We feel bad for Amber Roof. We really do.

Her brother – 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof – is the white supremacist who murdered nine black South Carolinians at the historic Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C. last month.

To her credit, Amber Roof – whose wedding was supposed to take place on the Saturday after the “Holy City Massacre” – was the individual who identified her brother to law enforcement as the perpetrator of the attack.

Good for her …

Dylann Roof was eventually captured in Shelby, N.C. and returned to Charleston – where he is awaiting trial on nine murder charges.

Anyway, Amber Roof has lost whatever good will she may have engendered by giving up her brother …

“As many of you know Michael and I had to abruptly cancel our wedding day, due to the tragedy  that occurred in Charleston,” she wrote on a Go Fund Me page created last weekend. “June 21st was supposed to be the happiest day of our lives.  It is the day every girl dreams of, it was the day we dreamed of.”

“We had each other, we have the perfect venue, and we had our vows ready to be read. We were ready! We had planned out every detail for months and months. It was going to be the PERFECT day!” she continued.

Until … this.

“Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man,” she wrote. “The Charleston Massacre took place and our lives were forever changed. The media abused our privacy and published all of our wedding information and destroyed our dream day. Destroying the first day of Michael and my life together.”

Again, we feel sorry for her (and her fiancee) … we really do.

But seriously … who does this?

And who gives money to something like this?

“While it’s not by her own actions that this horrible event occurred, it’s still very inappropriate for her to even THINK of launching this GoFundMe campaign,” one of our founding editor’s Facebook friend’s wrote. “There are people who will never see their family member ever again.  It’s the wrong time to be concerned about a ‘dream honeymoon.'”

Exactly …

Roof had raised close to $2,000 for her honeymoon when the site was yanked … apparently by her.

Good.  Amber Roof should have known better than to ever publicize such a solicitation.  At least she had the good sense to take it down.

Her face reminds me of those Nazi propaganda pamphlets & cartoons depicting Jews in the 30’s & 40’s.

If she had claws for fingers the picture would be complete.

I’ve seen those propaganda books, and also the Japanese, British and Americans… If I had to be called up for legitimate defense purposes I want to be in that department. Could I hurt some of the enemy’s feelings? — Oh, hell yes, it would release my other self (maniacal laughter..!!)

I bet that the military people that designed some of the World War Two propaganda were probably your relatives. While all enemies suffered, the “Japs” drew a particularly cruel depiction in some of the propaganda that was distributed. I know they were your relatives because they referred to them as piss-ants and cock-a-roaches.

‘ piss-ants and cock-a-roaches’ — really, those words were used? I don’t remember that, but there were so many books about the propaganda used. For sure none of my relatives worked in military propaganda. Well, other than my Dad as a recruiter . I do remember going with him around to those isolated, truly dirt-poor farms in Arkansas, and watching and listeneing to him tell folks how wonderful the Army is. You would have thought he was their best friend for life! He was THE top recruiter in the Army about three times. Somewhere I have the newspaper clipping where he recruited 46 guys in one month (1 failed the physical). These are some of the family records I need to preserve and publish for my family. Need to go now, but I’ll try to sign in with a short story of my Dad’s tour in Panama during WWII.

I salute and thank your dad for his service. And those records will be interesting for for future generations of Shifty Henry’s to look thru.
That kind of memorabilia gives the little ones something to admire and it helps in some way to help establish a base from which they will view the world.

You think this is bad? I saw a screen shot from the page before it was taken down. The last donor, a Megan P., contributed $10 and wrote ” I too have a selfish brother who has ruined a few of my special days…”
The mind boggles

She should have had the foresight to know that while she would engender some sympathy, the majority of people would be put off by her actions.
Her brother”s actions has put her in the spotlight and people will be critiquing just about every thing she does. She will not draw much sympathy for her plight, thrust upon her by her brother’s actions.A time to put off plans and deal with the situation.

Why should she get threats and get fucked over? She’s not any more responsible for the shootings than any of us are. I don’t know what my brother does everyday of the week, if he does something stupid it shouldn’t reflect upon me.

True dat. But if my brother makes national news for a racist massacre, I plan to fade away as quickly as possible. Certainly I wouldn’t draw attention to myself even if I needed money.

Asking for public donations wasn’t the smartest or most understanding thing that she could have done but she does not deserve to be insulted or ridiculed because of her brother. She notified the authorities when she saw the pictures and identified her brother. She provided valuable information that led to his capture. Her information helped them gather the necessary information so that a BOLO could be issued and the media be alerted. Without that information he made have driven through NC unnoticed. Dylan Roof deserves to die for what he did but does his sister deserve to be ridiculed?

Me too. At least three. Good grief, when I thought dysfunctional was a mere phrase — no telling what people might do.

I watched a most disturbing TV show – barely made it through 2nd series. Nothing better to watch or read, so I finished it: Mildred Pierce.

Difficult to imagine, but certainly thought provoking and heart wrenching.

“does his sister deserve to be ridiculed?”

Poor judgement seems to run in the family.

She turned her brother in. Does she deserve praise for that-No. Does she deserve donations-No. But she doesn’t deserve to be ridiculed. She should take her marriage license and go to a Notary. Later, She can have a formal wedding. Apparently, she does not share her brother’s racist views because she reported him. Not all of Horace King’s family shared his views either. You can choose your friends but not your family. As for her brother, If they had a lottery to decide who had the privilege of putting a needle in his arm, I would sell my house to buy as many tickets for that lottery as possible.

She is not being ridiculed bc of her brother. She is being ridiculed bc she is asking for charity to pay for a fancy wedding. When you put down deposits on wedding plans, you run the risk that something terrible could happen which would cancel the wedding. Deal with it!

Depends on your socioeconomic level. Your kind probably pays $50,000 for a wedding. To some pp, $5000 is a lot of money.

Reply
Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 3:33 pm

Ms. Pinckney, you’re the one calling a $5000 wedding a fancy wedding. Of course now your daughters will likely have weddings rival the Kardashians now that your bank account is full of taxpayer money. And the fact that your husband’s church is a non-profit maybe you can funnel some of the money through it so you don’t get hit with all the taxes.

Mom July 2, 2015 at 7:56 pm

“The media abused our privacy and published all of our wedding information.” Uhm, well it was all there on knot.com. Did she not know anyone could access it? In addition to her inappropriately begging for money, she showed that them Roof offspring ain’t all that bright either.

So now we are stuck with this tragedy forever to be known as “The Charleston Massacre”…?? I can’t even begin to imagine in the future folks from Charleston having to apologize for living there.

Reply
Sybil July 2, 2015 at 8:17 pm

No need for apology – just take that flag down. The deaths will have changed history forever. They didn’t die for nothing, but a cause that should have ended with the civil war. My opinion only. Still think you are swell ;)

So you don’t think the families of the shooting victims won’t use this event to their advantage? The dough for them is already rolling in, $29 million of taxpayer dollars from Obama, $100,000 from the Charlotte Panthers, $100,000 from SCE&G, $100,000 from Wells Fargo, $500,000 from an anonymous donor for education grants, etc… The families of the victims hit the lottery with this shooting.

In that case Squishy, while money is always a plus, I would bet you anything they would rather have their loved ones back. I know I’d give my last dime to keep my family — I imagine they feel the same.

Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 12:01 pm

So the family of the 80+ year old would rather have grandma back then the millions shoved in their pocket? Her death benefited her family more than her living for a few more months.

“That the DoJ allocated $29 million to Charleston victims isn’t in dispute, but so far little information has been provided detailing how it is to be used. Funerals and other related services were likely made possible by help from Uncle Sam, but it also unlikely (as some have speculated) that any grieving family members have been made wealthy through government largesse due to their having lost a loved one at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.”Read more at http://m.snopes.com/2015/07/01/charleston-victims-payout/#6R44dfKBQYzAXsdg.99

The owner of the Charlotte Panthers donated $100,000 to cover the funeral expenses for the nine families.

But thanks for repeating the link I posted above, and an hour earlier than your message.

Yup. She’ll be on Dr. Phil talking about mental health, children of divorce, domestic abuse or the “topic of the week.” She’s certainly not too shy to beg strangers for money. So, I’m guessing she’s not too shy to talk for money.

Your statement is the epitome of poor taste.
My point was that begging for money should be reserved for dire situations like expensive life saving medical costs, not wedding celebrations.

What a completely little narcissistic self-centered worthless little bitch.

“Well, nine people are dead, but I’m a victim too, and I need five thousand dollars for a nice vacation, and I’m very deserving, so send me some money. Oh, yeah- ‘please’.”

Unfuckingbelievable.

Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 11:18 am

Ahh, it’s probably more like they put every dime into their wedding and her little brother fucked it all up. Now they have to start all over and asked their friends and family for help.

On the other hand, the $29 million Obama handed to the families of the shooting haven’t told the taxpayers thank you. Those nine families received more money from Obama than the Boston Bombing victims, the Sandy Hook shooting victims and the Aurora theater shooting victims did combined. $3.2 million per family. “You’re welcome, if you had been white you would have maybe received 10% of that.”
