“RACE WAR” RE-IGNITED …
|| By FITSNEWS || A manifesto attributed to 41-year-old William Epperly Vester Lee Flanagan II (a.k.a. Bryce Williams) explicitly cites the June 2015 “Holy City Massacre” in Charleston, S.C. as the motivation for his bloody execution of two television journalists in Virginia this week.
“Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15,” Flanagan wrote in the 23-page document, according to ABC News (the outlet which received it). “The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…”
“What sent me over the top was the church shooting,” he later added. “And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them.”
Flanagan added that through his actions, 21-year-old white supremacist Dylann Storm Roof – the confessed perpetrator of the Charleston massacre – was getting the race war he wanted.
“As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!”
All this less than a month after Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called on blacks to “rise up and kill those who kill us.”
Shortly before 7:00 a.m. EDT, Flanagan approached his former co-workers Alison Parker and Adam Ward – employees at WDBJ TV 7 (CBS – Roanoke/ Lynchburg, Virginia) – during a live television shoot in Moneta, Virgina, firing at least six shots.
Parker and Ward were pronounced dead on the scene while a third person, local businesswoman Vicki Gardner, was wounded during the attack. Flanagan – who filmed the attack as it was transpiring – later killed himself as he was being pursued by police.
