South Carolina Senator Blames Victims In Church Shooting

A South Carolina politician asked about the Confederate flag flying outside the statehouse instead took aim at the victims of last week’s church massacre.

State Rep. Bill Chumley appeared to insist the nine black victims gunned down by 21-year-old mass murder suspect Dylann Storm Roof inside Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston on June 17 could have put up more of a fight.”These people sit in there and waited their turn to be shot,” Chumley told CNN reporter Drew Griffin on Tuesday.
