The shooting deaths of nine people at a black church in Charleston, S.C, have reignited calls for the Confederate flag flying on the grounds of the Statehouse in Columbia to come down. Rallies are being held, and politicians have joined the chorus of voices calling for its removal — an opinion that has carried political risks in the state in the past. (AP Photo/Rainier Ehrhardt)

*The South Carolina House has approved a measure that allows them to consider removing the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds.

The lawmakers were in a special session Tuesday to pass a state budget, but they took the extraordinary step to allow the flag debate after nine black church members were killed last week in Charleston.

Legislators will pass a state budget and when they return to consider Gov. Nikki Haley’s budget vetoes, they will take up the flag issue. That could be in a couple of weeks.

The House held a moment of silence for the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a state senator, who was killed in the attack.

  3. I just saw the most apt headline for all that’s been going on relating to the Confederate flag of late:
    “Confederate symbols falling across the south.”

    😆

    I guess the cops who arrested Roof somehow knew the “good” that would eventually come from the killer’s actions.
    That may explain why he was not treated like Freddie Gray or the kids at the pool in McKinney (or Ohio) during the arrest. It most “certainly” would explain the following:
    After arresting Charleston shooting suspect Dylann Roof, police officers reportedly took him out to Burger King. When police caught up to the shooter in Shelby, North Carolina, Roof complained that he was hungry, so they stopped at a nearby fast food restaurant.
    “He was very quiet, very calm,” Shelby Police Officer Jeff Ledford told The Charlotte Observer. “He sat down here very quietly. He was not problematic.”

    😕
