Charleston Shooter’s Friends Knew Stuff and Didn’t Tell Anybody

Two of the Charleston shooter’s friends gave interviews today sharing information that suggested they could have prevented Wednesday night’s massacre if only they had told authorities what they knew.

Justin Meek, a friend of Dylann Storm Roof, told Greta Van Susteren Thursday night that his friend had taken his gun back from his mother a couple of weeks ago. Dylann had gotten the gun in April – a gift from his dad for his 21st birthday – even though he would have failed a background check if he had tried to buy a gun for himself.

Roof was charged with felony possession in February, 2015:

According to South Carolina court documents exclusively obtained by Radar, Roof, 21, was arrested in Lexington County on felony charges of possession of cocaine, methamphetamine and LSD on February 28, 2015.


Two months after he’s charged with a felony his father buys him a gun?

According to Meek, Dylann’s mom had confiscated the gun because she didn’t trust him with it.

Also – there was the small matter of giving a gun the someone who is ineligible to own one -which is considered a “straw purchase” and a felony.

Via Gateway Pundit:

Another friend had information that was even more alarming. According to Dalton Tyler, Dylann had been “planning something like that for six months” because he wanted “to start a civil war.” Um?

Dylann Roof, the alleged gunman authorities say is responsible for killing nine people in a predominantly black Charleston, South Carolina, church Wednesday night, had been “planning something like that for six months,” according to his roommate.

Dalton Tyler, who said he has known Roof for seven months to one year, said he saw the white, 21-year-old suspect just last week.

“He was big into segregation and other stuff,” Tyler said. “He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.”

That is not the kind of thing you keep to yourself.

Tyler apparently didn’t know that Dylann had stolen the gun back from his mother. He told ABC that “Roof’s parents didn’t allow him to take that .45 home with him until just this past week.”

Our Weasel Of The Week!

Once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all disgusting but the Council has spoken and we have our winner. The envelope please….
Yes, It’s Faux Black Person And Racial Grievance Monger Rachel Dolezal!!

 The Razor : Should we just skip the submissions and go with Rachel Dolezal?

Especially after Smoking Gun is claiming she sued Howard U for discriminating against her for being white.

This puts her in whole new class of super-weasel in my book.

 Puma By Design : Rachel Dolezal lied, committed fraud, sued Howard University,lied about living in a teepee. Dolezal was determined to be a victim by any means necessary.  Dolezal is a mega weasel.

I’ve  already had a few things to say about this weeks’ winner. One thing the age of Obama has brought to us on steroids is the age of the victim.Everyone, it seems, is now entitled to grievance points unless you’re white, Asian, Christian, Jewish, Male, heterosexual or any combination thereof. As people like Rachel Dolezal discovered, there definitely is such a thing as black privilege, and others besides her have figured that out and taken advantage of it.

And it’s not just blacks, either. I once had a client at a Fortune Five Hundred company with blond hair, blue eyes and a distinctly non-Hispanic name who benefited from a large corporation’s diversity and affirmative action diktats simply because she claimed to be Puerto Rican. No one ever asked for any proof. This woman had never been to Puerto Rico, had no discernible accent and was so non-Hispanic that she pronounced the Spanish word for chicken, pollo, like the game polo rather than correctly, and the name Jose as ‘Josie.’ Yet she was smart enough to realize that simply checking the right box was worth money and special treatment she had no reason to bother to earn.

Miss Dolezal made the same discovery, and decided to make a career out of being a grievance monger. Now normally, I wouldn’t like to see someone like this get a Golden Weasel, because ultimately she failed. That was until I saw a number of responses on Twitter and elsewhere willing to give her honorary victim status as a black simply because she was down for the struggle, as it were. Which of course, is the kind of Weaselness we celebrate with this award.

Miss Donezal isn’t here to accept her Weasel, so I decided to hand it over to Ms.Toya Graham, of Baltimore, who you might remember seeing briefly interviewed on one of the news channels. She obviously has some strong feelings about people like Rachel Donezal whipping up a mob there to loot and burn and riot for ‘the cause.’.

I have a feeling she might have a word or two to say to Rachel Donezal, don’t you? And I bet some of her neighbors do too.

Well, there it is! 

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
