Massacre in Charleston

This broke late last night, but I wanted to await details. Nine people are dead after a gunman opened fire in one of America’s oldest black churches. The dead include the senior pastor and a state senator.

Be wary of early narratives of what happened here. The gunman is still at large and reports are still fragmentary. Rather than speculate, let’s just pray for the victims. I will update this post as confirmed news comes in.

Update: They appear to have caught the shooter, a 21 y/o white supremacist.

    Well I hope they give him the fair and speedy trial he deserves, but unless there is some real evidence this is not his fault, such as some futuristic mind controlling device, he deserves that death penalty like any other terrorist in my opinion. I mean going in and shooting is enough for me, but to walk in, sit down with people who welcomed you in, and then do this? Women shot and a child there too?

    Also, most of the family members are forgiving this scumbag. I must say they are by far better than I.

    I didn’t really get choked up about this until I saw that.  I can’t imagine the decency these people have to be able to forgive him.
