    How awesome it would be for you if I'd said or implied any of that. The guy has been in custody for like 5 minutes so no one knows why he did it. His motivation will be determined during the police investigation, so you might want to hold off on your cheerleading or rationalizations (depending on the findings) until then.

    You're right, it's no comfort and it's a tragedy. I think the guy is crazier than a **** house rat. I'm almost sorry he was taken peacefully but I understand the desire to know if he had help in any way.

    Friends on FB mean absolutely nothing about a person's views on a specific topic.

    I'm not into FB and the other stupid social media stuff, but AFAIK in order to be on that "friends" list the owner of the page has to accept the friendship request. So yes, it does say something that a supposed racist would accept their target of hate as friends.

    Right.

    I'm going to speculate a little here but my guess is that he had a crush on a girl that ended up dating a black guy and that's what set this off. The whole "You're raping our women" thing just screams more sexual than racial.

    Someone posted on his fb page.

    I don't know you, but when I searched for your name from the news outlets it led me here. You're not captured yet, so there is a chance that you may see this message. I don't look at you with the eyes of hatred, or judge you by your appearance or race, but I look at you as a human being that made a horrible decision to take the lives of 9 living & breathing people. Children do not grow up with hatred in their hearts. In this world we are born color blind. Somewhere along the line, you were taught to hate people that are not like you, and that is truly tragic. You have accomplished nothing from this killing, but planting seeds of pain that will forever remain in the hearts of the families that lost their lives and countless hearts around our country. If you're still out there and you have your phone with you... Give your heart to Jesus and confess your sins with a heart of forgiveness. He is the only one that can save your soul and forgive you for the terrible act that you have done. I love you Dylann... even in the midst of the darkness and pain you've caused, but more importantly HE loves you.*
    If you would like to make that confession, then repeat these words.*
    Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
    I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
    You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
    Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
    Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.
    Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
    Amen.*
    God bless you Dylann

    Your comment was the same as multiple other cons in this thread, the focus is punishment (typical con/authoritarian position) and to bury the problem as soon as possible.
