Obama claims this doesn’t happen in ‘advanced countries’. In other news, the president’s nose has grown 14 feet long.
Once again, President Obama addresses a nation in mourning.
Wednesday night, a lone gunman opened fire in a historic African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, killing nine. Police are investigating the shooting as a hate crime. The suspect, a 21-year-old white male, has appeared in photographs wearing pro-apartheid paraphernalia. He was apprehended Thursday morning. “First, we must confirm this individual is involved in it,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said shortly after the arrest.
President Obama was joined by Vice President Joe Biden during the Thursday press statement.
“There is something particularly heartbreaking about a death happening in a place in which we seek solace and we seek peace in a place of worship,” Obama said, noting the historical significance of the church in which the shooting occurred. “mother emanuel is that in fact more than a church. This is a place of worship that was founded by African-Americans seeking liberty. This is a church that was burned to the ground, because its worshippers worked to end slavery. … this is a sacred place in the history of Charleston and in the history of America.”
