Police Release Photos of Charleston South Carolina Church Shooting Suspect
ABC News ^ | June 18, 2015

Posted on 06/18/2015 4:04:44 AM PDT by Zakeet

Police and federal law enforcement agencies were in the midst an all-out manhunt Thursday morning for the gunman they say is responsible for killing 9 people in a Charleston South Carolina church Wednesday night in what police described as a hate crime.

The suspect opened fire on a bible study group at the historic black Emanuel AME Church on Calhoun street, killing eight people in an "unfathomable." Two other people were rushed to the hospital where one died.

Early Thursday morning, police released pictures from surveillance footage showing the suspect, a younger white man, approximately 21-25 years old, as well as the car he was driving, police said.

Just wondering: is it normal to wear a long-sleeved sweatshirt in Charleston in the summer - even at night?

Seems to me it is a hot & humid environment...

Well, if that’s the shooter then he made himself look like something else unless the illusion was due mainly to lighting, camera quality and settings.

C'mon this is FR. Every crime by someone lighter skinned is ALWAYS done by a Muslim A-rab from that "war zone" of "Dearbornistan." /sarcasm.

If you have been paying attention to followup reports, many of these shootings or terror attacks by light-skinned people were done by people with either a far left political view, or by a Muslim extremist. Very few by a right-wing extremist. Of course not all of them were politically-motivated at all.

I agree with you he is white, see my first comment on this thread agreeing with paul that he is white. I was simply equivocated to ETL that he could be something other than white because the 3 photos we had at that time sucked. Sorry for the confusion. (-:

Those flags on the left side, the top one looks a bit like the Netherlands flag with an English St. George’s flag in the miniature on the left and Netherlands on the right.

The 2nd flag looks a bit like Nigeria’s, the green and white.

I certainly don’t see those as soccer patches.

What is the emblem over the heart area is curious too, can’t quite make it out yet.

I will be surprised if he makes it through the day today.

I'd be surprised if he doesn't try to off himself when they get him cornered.

Caucasian drug user in early 20’s from the South = tattoos. He was either covering these tattoos to delay identification or wearing some type of thin body armour or vest, I believe.

He could even be dead in the trunk of the car now.

But if this was a PLANNED distraction, it sure is working.

Of course. How could be miss the obvious. /s

That really was his hair.

It seems every white dude that does this stuff has giant crazy eyes.

A staged "hate crime" similar to Sandy Hoax, playing the race agenda horns;

You are a despicable person.

Top flag is the old apartheid flag from South Africa.

Yesterday's weather in Charleston had a high of 98 and a low of 77. At that time of evening, it would likely have been still in the upper 80's.

Others have noted the outline of what looks like a body-armor chest plate under the sweatshirt. Looks like a trauma plate to me too.

We all know that if he is anything but white, the lamestream media will refuse to profile him and give us a bunch of BS. So, it is up to us at FR to give possible clues. I would say he is a liberal, white narcissistic, rich punk who feels he has been bullied or cheated out of the good things in life. Probably a victim of microagression.

One thing we can say, almost all of these accused are late teens types, Lanza, Kliebold, to early 20s, with a few being up to about 25 years old, James Holmes?. Most all of these shooters are in this general age-range.

That Facebook link is interesting. His privacy settings won't let non-friends see his wall, but from the sampling of friends located down the left side, probably 3/4 of his friends are either "gangsta" blacks or white wanna-bes.

We'll have to see how this plays out.
