While the pundits spin and the families grieve, there’s one heart-rending thing that almost made the maggot Dylann Roof turn around and leave that church without causing all that evil:
Two law enforcement officials told CNN that Dylann Storm Roof, who is currently in custody, confessed to the shooting and said that he wanted to start a race war.
Roof has been charged with nine counts of murder, as well as weapons charges, police sources told NBC News. He will appear at a bond hearing via closed-circuit television Friday at 2 p.m.
NBC News further reported that Roof told investigators he “almost didn’t go through” with the massacre “because everyone was so nice to him.”
He ultimately decided he had to “go through with his mission.”
He almost didn’t do it.
