    And so he sat in that church for an hour drawing divine inspiration for the nine murders he was about to commit? I think not.

    **** courts, **** trials, just shoot the "perp", never mind anything like mistaken identity.

    The best example I can recall is when a mad man shot up some Amish in Eastern Pennsylvania. The community gathered in prayer.....for the shooter.

    That's what I respect. Wild West "justice" is just legal madness.
    Again, like so many cons, you stay focused on "punishment" and continue to avoid motivation.

    You keep proving my point.

    ****ing savage, they should make that barbarian fend for himself in prison for the rest of his life, a quick painless death is far to easy for him.

    We do now!

    [Dylan] Roof,[ the 21-year-old white gunman,] sat with churchgoers inside Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church for about an hour on Wednesday before opening fire, Police Chief Gregory Mullen said.

    He reloaded five times even as victims pleaded with him to stop, a relative of [Pastor & SC Senator] Pinckney's said. Sylvia Johnson, a cousin, told MSNBC that a survivor told her the gunman reloaded five times during the attack. Pinckney tried to talk him out of it, she said.

    "He just said, 'I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country," Johnson said.

    A hate crime; no doubt about it (now).

    FYI for those interested: The FBI/SCBI would have investigated this shooting regardless because Pastor Pinckney was also a SC State Senator.

    The bombing of Pearl Harbor was perpetrated by Japanese and Japanese can't be trusted so we better round them all up. A "social conservative" did that?

    So I'm a self-identified conservative and as such, in your world, I'm not allowed to comment about the issue or the hate you spew. Is that right? Your comments in post #164 are bordering on hate speech. Kind of ironic.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    It's an election year - anything that can disparage the other side is worth trying as a meme... never mind it being accurate or truthful. It's all a grand right wing conspiracy you see... if it's evil, it's the "right". Just goes to show how far the ideological far left brainwashes.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He was a twisted **** was what he was. Being a "conservative" doesn't paint all conservatives with the same brush that was used by the other poster. And one interview with one classmate doesn't make it a fact. His political lean has nothing to do with what took place. From what we have seen and heard so far, this was motivated by race and race alone. And the party of racists isn't the "conservative" one anyway.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Terrorism is usually an act designed to make people change their activities and lifestyles out of fear. Hate crimes - or mass shootings, like the one in the Connecticut, are more about freaks seeking some unspecified "revenge" for real or imagined wrongs. The school shooting struck more terror into parents' hearts than did 9-11, but it was still just a crime. The shooter here - will, hopefully - get the death penalty, but not because he "hated" rather because he pulled that trigger and slaughtered human beings. The tag of "hate crime" just gets in the way. It means nothing.

    Then you don't have much of a point. Motivation can be a mitigating factor in court where it comes to sentencing, but the law shouldn't try to play mind reader. The law is about what you do, not what you think.
