Victims’ Families Address Alleged Shooter: ‘I Forgive You’

Friday at the first court hearing for alleged shooter Dylann Roof, the family members of Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church shooting victims told the young man accused of murdering their loved ones they forgive him.

The daughter of Ethel Lance said, “I just wanted everybody to know, to you, I forgive you. You took something very precious away from me. I will never talk to her ever again. I will never be able to hold her again. But I forgive you. And have mercy on your soul. You have hurt me. You hurt a lot of people. May God forgive you, and I forgive you.”

A family member of Myra Thompson said, “I forgive you. My family forgives you. But we would like you to take this opportunity to repent. Repent. Confess. Give your life to the one who matters the most. Christ. So that he can change it. He can change your ways no matter what happened to you and you’ll be okay. Do that and you’ll be better off than you are right now. ”
