WTH? Judge Calls On Community To Support Dylann Roof’s Family

By  | 

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.
