It has just been revealed that Vester Lee Flanagan, the murderer who killed two Virginia TV reporters early Wednesday said in his ‘manifesto’ that he killed the two white journalists to start a race war and that his actions were in response to the killings of black people in a Charleston church last month.

The shocking statements were apparently made in the manifesto that was faxed to ABC in New York explaining his actions. In the letter he admitted that he wanted a race war and that he was killing for racial reasons.
“Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…” “What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them.”
“As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!” He said Jehovah spoke to him, telling him to act.
Meanwhile, Barrack Obama’s white-house secretary called the attack a case of gun violence that could have been stopped by stricter gun control.
Later in the manifesto, the killer quotes the Virginia Tech mass killer, Seung Hui Cho, calls him “his boy,” and expresses admiration for the Columbine High School killers. “Also, I was influenced by Seung–Hui Cho. That’s my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got…just sayin.’”
The suspect has been identified as Vester Lee Flanagan, though he also went by the name Bryce Williams. Police confirmed Flanagan died at a nearby hospital a short time after they found him with a “self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
In two of the videos, posted on social media under the name Bryce Williams, several of Flanagan’s past video reports are shown in what appears to be a news reel. In the video, he reports on gun shops, “race” issues and local crime.
