Racist Charleston Gunman Shouted: “You Raping Our Women, You Taking Over Our Country” During Shooting
Last night a white male unloaded his gun inside the historic Emanuel Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
Nine people were killed.
The shooter sat in the church pews for an hour before committing mass murder.
The racist shooter said, “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”
CBS Atlanta reported:
Police Chief Greg Mullen said he could not offer a make and model on the dark colored sedan because investigators were not certain about what is shown in the video.
Mullen said the scene at the church was chaotic when police arrived, and the officers thought they had the suspect tracked with a police dog, but he got away…
…State House Minority leader Todd Rutherford told The Associated Press that the church’s pastor, state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, was among those killed.
Pinckney 41, was a married father of two who was elected to the state house at age 23, making him the youngest member of the House at the time.
“He never had anything bad to say about anybody, even when I thought he should,” Rutherford, D-Columbia, said. “He was always out doing work either for his parishioners or his constituents. He touched everybody.”
Pinckney’s cousin told WAFF-TV that the gunman specifically asked for the reverend before Bible study and sat next to him before opening fire. The cousin says survivors told her that the gunman told them, “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”
