We hate to say it, but it was only a matter of time before this happened. Suspected Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof was recently beat down in the jail shower, and by just connecting the dots, it doesn’t seem like there’s a whole lot of people potentially upset with this development. Let’s review the facts and then draw our own conclusion:

  • Roof was let out of his cell at 7:45 a.m. on Thursday to take a shower.
  • Before he makes his way to the shower, officers typically check the cell area to make sure they are all locked.
  • According to authorities, Roof is then escorted by detention officers, however on this day, one officer was dropping off some toilet tissue, while the other officer was taking a break.
  • While no one was looking, 25 year-old inmate Dwayne Stafford then escaped from his cell, and ran down to the shower to assault Roof.
  • Authorities say Stafford used his fist to have a few choice words with Roof.
  • In the aftermath of the beatdown, Roof and his attorney are not said to be pressing charges for the assault.
  • Roof, charged with murder in the deaths of nine people at Mother Emanuel AME church in June 2015, was being held in solitary confinement at the Charleston County Detention Center.
  • Stafford had been in jail on charges of strong armed robbery, assault and lying to police, and was faced with a 100,000 bond.
  • Shortly after the beatdown, Stafford’s bond was posted by an unknown source.

Now we’re not saying there was a huge conspiracy to put the paws on Roof  in an effort to deliver an ass kicking on behalf of the American people … but it sure does feel good to ponder the possibility of such a thing happening to a man who caused so much grief to so many families.

We’ll definitely keep you updated on this story as it continues to develop.
