Church Shooter Dylann Roof Badly Beaten In Prison

Dylann Roof killed nine peaceful churchgoers because they were black
African-American inmate, Dwyane Stafford, beat and battered white supremacist murderer, Dylann Roof, who killed 9 black people at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Roof is ironically in segregation, to protect him from the general population in prison. However, as a prison guard went to get toilet paper for another inmate, he left the door open and Roof was attacked by Stafford as he went to take a shower. 

Dwyane Stafford is being branded a hero on social networking
Roof shouldn’t be surprised at the attack. When you go into prison under certain circumstances, such as committing hate crimes or pedophilia, you will become a target. Nonetheless, the Judiciary Report does not encourage vigilantism. There needs to be unity and reconciliation among the races. 

Side Bar: some on social networking are slamming media outlets for referring to Roof as the “accused shooter.” However, they reference him as accused and his crimes alleged, because he is not convicted of the murders and if on some weird technicality he gets off the charges, even though we know he did it, he can sue them all and make millions of dollars. 

Some on social networking are also calling him a terrorist and complaining. Technically, Roof is a domestic terrorist. However, the U.S. government generally reserves the term terrorist for Taliban, Al Qaeda or ISIS members and those inspired by them, also called the lone wolf. 


Accused Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof beaten in jail
Updated 5:44 PM ET, Thu August 4, 2016 - Dylann Roof, accused of the racially motivated massacre of nine African American parishioners last year at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church, was attacked and beaten Thursday by a black inmate in a South Carolina jail, authorities said. Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon Jr. said that Roof, who is white, was out of his cell and on his way to the shower when the attack happened at the Charleston County Detention Center. 

Although he was in protective custody, Roof, 22, was vulnerable because only one guard was in the area and he was fetching toilet tissue for another inmate, Cannon said. That allowed another inmate, 25-year-old Dwayne Stafford, time to run down the stairs from his cell in the protective custody unit and assault Roof with his fists, the sheriff said. No weapons were involved in the attack and Roof was able to return to his cell after being treated, Cannon said.

"The detention officer responded quickly and separated the two," Cannon said. "The injuries that Roof received are relatively minor -- some bruising around the face and the back. It appears he was struck with a fist and nothing more serious than that." Roof, who is being kept in protective custody because the nature of his alleged crimes could make him vulnerable to assault, said he did not want to press charges, Cannon said.

The attack brought praise on Twitter with calls for donations to Stafford's jail commissary account.
