Maybe Christon Scriven should take that age old quote, ‘Who needs enemies when you have friends like mine?’ to heart.
We say that because Scriven, a young Black man, is said to be one of Dylann Storm Roof‘s “best friends.” Yes, you read that right.
Not only that, Scriven, 21, says it doesn’t matter that Roof – who’s alleged to have killed 9 Black churchgoers because they were Black to incite a race war – he still loves him.
In a twisted kind of way, Scriven seems to be trying to come up with excuses for Roof’s killing spree. Speaking with The Telegraph, he revealed that Roof talked about doing a mass shooting at the University of Charleston when they were drunk on vodka last week.
He said that the school was the “primary target,” and not the and not the historically black Emanuel AME church, where Roof murdered six women and three men on Wednesday.
In another interview with the BBC, Scriven said Roof “had no intention of harming those people in that church.”
He also added that Roof “never said anything racist, never treated me any different.”
