Morgan Roof, younger sister of convicted killer Dylann Roof, was taken into custody on drug and weapon charges Wednesday after posting on Snapchat about National Walkout Day at her South Carolina high school, the State reports. "Your walking out for the allowed time of 17min, they are letting you do this, nothing is gonna change what tf you think it's gonna do?" she said of the protest against gun violence. "I hope it's a trap and y'all get shot we know it's fixing to be nothing but black people walkin out anyway."


Roof, an 18-year-old student at AC Flora High School in Richland County, was arrested after a school resource officer was told she was carrying marijuana, a knife, and pepper spray, CNN reports. She was given a $5,000 bond on charges of simple possession of marijuana and two counts of carrying weapons on school grounds, WIS reports. Under bond conditions, Roof, whose older brother murdered nine black parishioners at a Charleston church in 2015, is banned from returning to the school. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott praised school administrators for avoiding a "potential tragedy."

sigh, 'RSO was told' and the shock and awe of 'avoiding a potential tragedy'

Roof later told an investigator she had the weapons with her at school "for protection," according to Lt. Curtis Wilson, spokesman for the sheriff's department. There's been no word on specific threats she faced, and Wilson said the sheriff's department has no record of prior incidents involving her.
Crimes based on "belief" or "fear" permeate our criminal statutes. She could claim to be a victim of possible threat. Smoking marijuana to calm the nerves is better than an opioid.

Fear of physical harm from a person or persons unknown in the school is not a unreasonable fear. The school would/will not institute adequate measures to prevent any violence directed towards her. Her last name is Roof, does she not merit extra consideration from the school regarding her physical safety? The comments section of the linked article is all the evidence the cops need to confirm her claim of fearing for her safety is a reasonable fear.

Seems like another case of socially unacceptable speech being punished. Interesting that the self identified yankees in the comment section claim to not have ever heard the "en" word...I guess rap music is banned north of the Mason-Dixon line and west of the Mississippi.

"We are the government and we are here to help you."

What do our public schools do that any common criminal could not accomplish?

Get involved. Save a kid.
