22 years old. Appears to be a clean cut kid. Yet, hates people of other skin color (mainly black) enough to kill them? He probably doesn't hate anyone. He just thinks he does.
I have to ask; What was his up-bringing. Was he raised by the KKK, or what? The environment this kid was brought up in has poisoned his brain. This young man is standing proud, and go down; like a sailor on a ship. In his mind, he thinks he did the right thing.
I wonder when reality is going to sink in? That HIS life is over. And he's NOT getting a second chance. He's got to ask himself; "Why did I shoot those black people? Because they're black? Why do I hate them so much? What did they ever do to me?" If it hasn't already, reality will set in when he realizes, the ones he tried to impress, never come to visit. Sad, but too late now.......
I knew a young man years ago. We were about the same age. I got along with him ok. However, I was very careful what I said, or how I said it. I noticed in regular conversation, things I would say, or how I said it, would instantly wind him tighter than tight. Like a ticking time bomb. He'd try to act calm but, I'd see the white of his eyes, like he was going to explode. I pretended not to notice, and would change, or tweak the conversation. I use to think to myself; "One of these days this guy is going to explode, and someone's going to get hurt".
Sure enough. His girl friend split up with him, and went with this other guy. He barged into this other guy's apartment, and stabbed them both to death on the couch. Yes, he's in jail.
My point is: I never saw Roof as a ticking time bomb.
