DYLANN ROOF TRIAL DATE SET FOR THE DAY BEFORE ELECTION DAY

"A judge in South Carolina set a Nov. 7 trial date for the alleged shooter in last year's massacre at a Charleston church.
Dylann Roof, 22, of Columbia, S.C., is charged with entering the Mother Emanuel Church on June 17, 2015, and fatally shooting the pastor, Clementa Pinckney, and eight other [black people during a bible study...after sitting with them in that bible study.] Officials said Roof, who is white, targeted the victims because of their race. The church has a long history of civil rights activity."




Funny isn't it. Controversial verdicts and trials involving white shooters of black and brown people seem to coincide with major elections, holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and now a the day of a presidential election. 

Could it be the powers that be hope that we will be distracted? Or is all just coincidence?

No indictment for was announced for Darren Wilson on November 24 2014

Grand jury declined to indict Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner a little over a week later during the holiday season.  Black Lives Matter fooled everybody though. Protests took place all the way through the holiday season anyway.  We were not distracted.

I can't figure out how Officer Michael Brelo of Cleveland, who stood on top of a car hood and shot 15 bullets, out of the 49 total bullets he fired, down into two unarmed people, wound up having the announcement of his acquittal come just three plus weeks after the holidays when his trial started back in May of 2015, but that was interesting timing too.

The first of six officers tried for Freddie Gray's death, William Porter, began on the very last days of November in 2015.


Why should it take any longer than a year to bring a murderer, who we know was there, to trial?

Is it to make sure the public gets a little fuzzy on what happened?

Is this supposedly part of a fair trial? Is this supposed to help get an unbiased jury?

I wonder how fast or slow black people are tried for murder? I wonder if the announcement of a black person's indictment, verdict, or start of trial often comes between November and January?

I'm telling you: These interlocking circles of police officers, prosecutors and judges are enough to make a woman start believing in all sorts of conspiracy theories.
