The sister of Charleston church shooter and white supremacist Dylann Roof was arrested on National Walkout Day after deputies say she brought weapons to her school.
On Wednesday, 18-year-old Morgan Roof was charged with simple possession of marijuana and two counts of carrying a weapon on school grounds by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, reports WACH.
Reportedly, a school resource officer was contacted by a school administrator after marijuana, pepper spray and a knife were found on Roof.
Additionally, screenshots of a Snapchat posted by Roof revealed she said she hopes participants in the school walkout get shot. She also made a racial comment in the post.
The Snapchat post read:
"Your walking out for the allowed time of 17 mins, they are letting you do this, nothing is gonna change, what tf you think it's gonna do? I hope it's a trap and yall get shot, we know it's fixing to be nothing but black people walking out anyway, no offense ofc buuuuut"
