"Opportunity does not come knocking. It is usually running down the street, you have to chase and tackle it." - Sheriff David Clarke, Milwaukee County.
The Justice Dept. does not need to get involved just so this person can be prosecuted under a hate crime statute, which South Carolina evidently does not have. Let it just be a straight murder prosecution, so there is no doubt that the death penalty is available. Justice demands it for heinous murders like these.
I know a bazillion Christians and conservatives and I have yet to know one personally who has mass murdered people.

But it's funny to see you destroying your own argument here. My initial statement was that the shooter had a mental illness, you claimed he wasn't. I showed you that thoughts of homicidal ideation are classified under delirium in ICD-10. Now you have come back to prove me wrong by arguing that homicidal ideation is not mental illness, but rather a symptom of mental illness, meaning that those who present homicidal ideation are mentally ill, 89% of which are due to psychosis and the rest primarily substance induced mental illness.
So again, as I said, seeing a group of people at a bible study and thinking they were a threat to you worthy of killing you have presented clear evidence of mental illness through the clear display of homicidal ideation.
So what you are holding out for is some subset of the 11% that are not born of psychosis, and that vast majority of the cases that are clearly born of mental illness are just not good enough for you?Wait, where did I say he was or he wasn't mentally ill? I've said there is no evidence to prove one way or another as of yet. That remains true, don't be stubborn. Admit you made a silly claim and back away.
He told the mostly female Bible study group that he was there to stop them from raping white women... are you ready to accept my diagnosis yet?
