Charleston shooter, Dylann Roof

Charleston shooter, Dylann Roof

When the news broke on Wednesday night that a rampage shooter had killed 9 people at a black church in Charleston, SC, I wasn’t in the least bit surprised.

Like most Americans, I’ve seen this horror show so many times now that I have become numb to it. Oh, here we go again, I thought. It seems like I turn on the news and every other month one of the most common things that I see is a “Breaking News” headline followed by intense media coverage of some manhunt in progress. This has been going on my entire adult life going to back to even before I graduated high school in the Columbine High School massacre in 1999.

As far as I was concerned, the only interesting question about this particular incident, which is just one case in a far larger trend, was whether the shooter would turn out to be another self destructing vantardist or a mentally ill nutcase who wasn’t politically motivated. We’ve seen examples of both over the years and it turns out, unsurprisingly, that Dylann Roof was of killer in the vantardist tradition.
