The only thing that's clear is that you're stupid.

A smart racist is an interesting conversation, but a resentful insecure dummy is, well, just fuckin fun to piss off frankly.
Whats clear my friend, is that youre just a hypocrite based on your past posts in other threads. But saying i hate black people is one and the same as calling me a racist. Stooooopid

We know they have found a genetic link for sociopaths. And we know there are deviant and distinct brain anomalies for mass or spree murderers and probably a genetic component not yet discovered.

But we still maintain the environment has an influence.

I think eventually they will find the genetic link that causes the brain anomaly. How they will control the environment is another story.

I mean would Adam Lanza not have shot up the elementary school had his environment not provided him with guns and the knowledge to use them? It is hard to answer.

A couple of black churches shot up doesn't even register on the meter. In even the short term, it doesn't matter in the slightest.

If they were serious, they would address the REAL Problem...yeeahya, uh huh, das rat...da Black CULTCHA.

Don't worry Ossie...
You're obviously online contantly that Im guessing you stay insulated a lot from da boogie mens of da streets, so hopefully you will stay Safe n' Sound. Don't worry so much Sweetie.

Dylann Roof was assaulted in jail this morning while trying to take a shower. I have obtained a copy of the incident report, and the criminal history of the man who assaulted him. The man's name is Dwayne Marion Stafford, and he is 24 years old. Assaulting people seems to be his thing according to his criminal history. Dylann suffered minor injuries, and there was no weapons involved. Stafford will be charged with 3rd degree assault and battery.

Dylann Roof jury: Death penalty for Charleston church shooter

Charleston, South Carolina - Twelve federal jurors said Tuesday that Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine people in a 2015 massacre at a historically black Charleston, South Carolina, church, should be put to death.


The 10 women and two men recommended the death penalty for all 18 counts that carried that as a possible sentence.
Roof will become the first federal hate crime defendant to be sentenced to death, a Justice Department spokesman said.
Judge Richard Gergel will formally sentence Roof on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. ET. Roof, who represented himself during the penalty phase, told Gergel he wanted to file a motion for new lawyers. Gergel said Roof can argue that on Wednesday but he is not inclined to let that happen.
A group of defense attorneys and others who worked on Roof's behalf issued a statement, saying the death penalty decision means the case will not be over for a "very long time."
"We are sorry that, despite our best efforts, the legal proceedings have shed so little light on the reasons for this tragedy," the statement said.

The jurors did not look at Roof when they came in with the verdict. Several looked in the direction of the victims' families.
It was very quiet in the courtroom. There was no sound coming from the many family members.
Roof, who was facing away from the media, did not appear to show any reaction to the verdict.
Some of the people in the gallery were dabbing their eyes. Several relatives of those killed gently put their arms around each other.
"Today we had justice for my sister (Cynthia Hurd)," Melvin Graham told reporters. "This is a very hollow victory, because my sister is still gone. I wish that this verdict could have brought her back. But what it can do is just send a message to those who feel the way he feels that this community will not tolerate it."
Graham said he just wants mass killings to stop.
"Every time I hear about a shooting I want to cry," he said. "We have to stand together."

Roof's family said they will always love him.
"We will struggle as long as we live to understand why he committed this horrible attack, which caused so much pain to so many good people," they added. "We wish to express the grief we feel for the victims of his crimes, and our sympathy to the many families he has hurt."
The judge, who is bound by the jury's decision, complimented the jurors and said they did a magnificent job.
Prosecutors called the decision a result of hard work and said it was a "fair and just process."

US Attorney Beth Drake said Roof failed at his attempt to split people by race.
"Contrary to Roof's desire to sow the seeds of hate, his acts did not tear this community apart," she said. "Instead of agitating racial tensions as he had hoped, Roof's deadly attack inside Mother Emanuel became an attack on all of us, and the community stood in solidarity."

Roof: I had no choice
Before the jury deliberated his fate for three hours, Roof told the jury he still feels he had no choice but to kill nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in June 2015.
"In my confession to the FBI I told them that I had to do it, and obviously that's not really true. ... I didn't have to do anything," Roof said as he made his own five-minute closing argument in the penalty phase of his federal trial. "But what I meant when I said that was, I felt like I had to do it, and I still do feel like I had to do it."
But he also had suggested he'd like to be spared.

"From what I've been told, I have a right to ask you to give me a life sentence, but I'm not sure what good that will do anyway," Roof said. "But what I will say is only one of you has to disagree with the other jurors."
His statement followed a prosecutor's impassioned, two-hour argument in a Charleston courtroom urging jurors to give Roof the death penalty instead of their other option, life in prison without possibility of parole.
Jurors convicted Roof, an avowed white supremacist, last month of federal murder and hate crimes charges.
The prosecution and defense rested in the penalty phase on Monday, bringing to a close days of heartbreaking testimony from family and friends of victims who were killed.
Prosecutors argued that he's a calculating killer who deserves the death penalty because of his motive, his lack of remorse and the shooting's impact on the victims' families.
Prosecutor reminds jurors of gruesome details
In his closing argument Tuesday morning, Assistant US Attorney Jay Richardson described the lives of all nine victims, cited Roof's "racist hatred" and reminded the jurors of the testimony and evidence that convicted him:
• Roof was at the church three previous times to scout his target.
• He sat with the group for 40 minutes before shooting.
• He pulled the trigger "more than 75 times ... reloading seven times" as he stood over his victims, shooting them repeatedly.
• He "showed not one ounce of remorse."
• Richardson referred to what Roof had told investigators in a recorded interview: That "somebody had to do it," in part because "black people are killing white people every day."
"Those are the words of an extraordinary racist who believed it was justified," Richardson said.
