Morgan Roof. Roof, 18, was arrested Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at A.C. Flora High School after a school administrator contacted the school resource officer, and charged with two counts of carrying a weapon on school grounds and one count marijuana.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The sister of the man sentenced to die for killing nine people at a South Carolina church in 2015 has been arrested at her school and charged with bringing pepper spray, a knife and marijuana onto the campus.

Morgan Roof, 18, was arrested Wednesday at A.C. Flora High School after a school administrator contacted the school resource officer, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said in a news release.

She is charged with two counts of carrying a weapon on school grounds and one count of simple possession of marijuana.

No one was hurt.

A judge set her bond at $5,000 and said she could not return to the school. She was screened for a public defender. It was not known if she has an attorney yet.

Investigators say Roof also posted a Snapchat about the National School Walkout day protest against gun violence that alarmed fellow students, but no charges were filed for that message.

School principal Susan Childs posted a letter to parents on the school’s Twitter page explaining what occurred while students walked out to remember the 17 killed in the Parkland, Florida, Valentine’s Day school shooting.

“A student used social media to post a hateful message. The posting was not a threat, but was extremely inappropriate. That student was dealt with in a swift and severe manner as the posting caused quite a disruption,” Childs wrote.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued a statement Wednesday night praising school administrators and the sheriff’s department, saying a “potential tragedy” was avoided at the school.

Dylann Roof was convicted of fatally shooting nine African-American parishioners at a Charleston church in 2015. A week before his sentencing in January 2017, Roof met with his family and told his sister he would invite her to his execution.

A video recording of one of the visits showed Roof’s sister trying to make small talk. Roof asked his sister what she wanted to do as a career, scoffing at the unoriginality of her dream to be a nurse. He told her that he no longer had to worry about making a living because he was in prison.

    And now she’ll see herself as some kind of victim of society, she’ll blame the black people for making her brother go to prison and being the cause of all of her problems. She’ll drop out of school and become an official loser, join some Neo Nazi hate group and race to the bottom.

    Yes, she’s troubled and a racist just like her brother. She may never pick up a gun and go into a black church, but the same hatred, discontent and resentment is there.

    Apple – tree, tree – Apple. Never has an idiom or adage been so true. Her brother is on death row and she doesn’t deserve that harsh of a sentence, but she should go to jail. Now I don’t know if she is a racist like her brother, but she is demonstrating the same troubled spirit. I’ll pray for her.

  4. Looks like IGNORANCE IS BLISS IN THE ROOF FAMILY!!!!!!!!!
    Lock up this POS too.
    Put her in the same jail cell as her bro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    POOR WHITE TRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. This is one dumber than a bag of hair. She probably just invited the worst ass whoopin’ imaginable into her life. She may want to shave her head, grow a mustache and go into hiding. Dumbass.

    I think y’all left out some things, not sure why.
    “In her post, Roof wrote: “Your walking out for the allowed time of 17 min, they are letting you do this, nothing is gonna change what tf you think it’s gonna do? I hope it’s a trap and y’all get shot we know it’s fixing to be nothing but black people walkin out anyway…No offense ofc buuut.”
