The organization managing the funds for Dylann Roof’s legal costs released an image confirming the amount of donations currently received.
Michael Lawson, attorney for Citizens For White Rights released this statement “Our organization wants to ensure that Dylann Roof receives fair and equal treatment under the laws of our nation. With all of the publicity this recent incident is receiving along with the Black Organizations looking to make our client guilty, it’s important that Dylann Roof is protected. The donations we are receiving will ensure his protection as we wait for trial as well as when the trial begins.”
Several organizations and individuals who oppose the idea of fundraising for Dylann Roof are advocating to have the account shut down and some are looking to have the funds received distributed to the families of the shooting victims.
There is much speculation that the video below has a lot to do with Roof getting so much financial assistance.
