Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Prosecutors: Shooter who attacked Tennessee church wanted to kill at least 10 white people”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Why did Emanuel K. Samson want to kill at least 10 white people when he went on a rampage at a Tennessee church in 2017? According to prosecutors, he wanted revenge for the 2015 church shooting in which white supremacist Dylann Roof killed nine black people at Emanuel AME in Charleston, South Carolina. From the Tennessean:

During opening statements in the trial against Samson, Deputy District Attorney Amy Hunter said he left a note on the dashboard of his vehicle explaining his plans to retaliate for a 2015 church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, when white supremacist Dylann Roof killed nine black worshipers.

The note said “Dylann Roof is less than nothing,” and referenced “the blood that 10 of your kind will shed … in terms of vengeance,” according to portions Hunter read out loud in court.

The end of the note was written in much larger letters. It read, “1 Up Bitch.” In other words, Samson wanted to be one up on Roof’s murder tally.

Samson might have succeeded if not for a man who was there that day named Caleb Engle. Engle was a regular attendee at the church who became a genuine hero. He got into a scuffle with Samson during which he was pistol-whipped in the head. According to reports from 2017, Engle engaged Samson again and Samson accidentally shot himself during the struggle.
