In what was a shocking moment, the judge preceding over Dylann Roof’s bond hearing asked the community to support the accused killer’s family.

“We have nine victims but we also have victims on the other side,” the judge remarked in an opening speech. “There are victims on this young man’s side of the family. No one would have thrown them into the whirlwind of events that they were thrown into.”

Needless to say, the judge’s words didn’t sit well with a lot of people who took to Twitter to offer commentary:

Roof did not physically attend the hearing, appearing instead via video conference. He was charged with nine counts of murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Roof, who opened fire in a South Carolina church Wednesday night killing nine people, is scheduled to be back in court on October 23rd and 2 p.m. A judge denied the defendant’s bail request on the murder charges, but bail for the weapons charge was set at $1 million.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
