Dylann Roof

Dylann Roof, the white man charged with massacring 9 black church members in Charleston, was beaten by another inmate in jail on Thursday.

Roof, 22, is housed in solitary confinement for his own protection at the Charleston County Detention Center awaiting trial. The beating took place while Roof was showering alone at 7:45 a.m.

After Roof was led into the showers by guards, a black inmate named Dwayne Stafford rushed down the stairs from his cell and punched Roof in the face.

Roof bruised his neck and his back during the assault, according to a police report obtained by Channel 2 News.

Roof was examined by the jail's medical staff and returned to his cell.

He declined to press charges against Stafford, 26, who is awaiting trial on unrelated first-degree assault and strong-armed robbery charges.

Jail officials are investigating how Stafford managed to squeeze between a narrow vertical opening in his cell to get to Roof on the first floor of an area reserved for federal and high-security prisoners.

Cell doors in the area can only be opened by jail guards from a central control room.

Roof was led into the shower area Thursday morning by two guards. One guard then went to take toilet paper to another inmate. The 2nd guard went on a break, leaving Roof alone at the time of the beating.

Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon blamed "complacency" by the jailers who left their VIP inmate unguarded.

"It seems to me pretty obvious at this point that at the very least we have complacency," Cannon told reporters. "We do things day-in and day-out and they become routine."

Cannon refused to speculate on whether the attack was racially motivated.

"There is nothing that I am aware of beyond the obvious speculation that we would all have, given the nature of the situation. But nothing specific," he said.

Cannon did not specify if the guards were still employed by the jail.

    His a$$ ain't THAT damn stupid. He'd be waiting in the chow line to finish that whooping of a$$age. Stafford, sir...whatcha need Boo? Some cigs, a couple nudie mags, some lil debbies or ho-ho cakes? I don't even do money on inmate accounts, but you sir could get a few dollars. Shhhiiiit the inmates on that look out & the C.Os too for that matter...starting a gofund me collection plate in 3...2...1. You want sympathy? A hug? Take the following gif...that's about ALL I GOT for your murdering a$$!

  • Fendi

    May he be given live in prison and may said prisoners beat his raggedy ass every single waking day of his disgusting life, until he stops breathing and goes to hell, where he belongs.

  • Mizz76

  • Finding Forever…

    Where's the damn lock in a sock or soap shank when you need one? Where is Big Pearl to do a number on his a$$ & rip him a new one...literally? These inmates are missing a few pages from the Prison Inmate 101 handbook.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Right!!!! Have they NOT seen Oz.

  • Finding Forever…

    That's ALLLLLL I could think of, LLS. Like gotdamn...you all haven't seen Prison Break...Orange Is The New Black some kind of prison show or whatnot? Maybe they ain't have HBO, so they missed out? Add a dvd collectors set of Oz along with those missing pages why we at it, LOL.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    He deserves every beaten.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Out of a locked cell.... He squeezed through not one crack. His door was open and those guards were not complacent they were conspiring with each other. They have a union so they may get suspende and relocated to another area.....

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    Crazy S0b whatever happens to this S0b in jail he deserves every damn bit IMO

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    It was a set up! No way a 140 pound man can squeeze through a crack or it would have been done before.

  • Karma WhO

    Good for his sorry azz!! And its only the beginning..

  • scentsychick30

    Talk about karma folks on Facebook talking about putting money on his books. Sharing his inmate info of course white folks are trying to shame them. Like they weren't running to give Zimmerman money for killing a unarmed teenager??

  • lil goodie

    Not to me....look at George Zimmerman. ....case anthony....smh..

  • Wayup!

    So I think like the Catholic church we need to exonerate him of all his crimes for this one
    Provided he aint kill a kid I say we sign a petition ?

  • Octavious Crapp

    Sandra, what's Stafford's inmate number? I need to put a few dollars on his book as a measure of gratitude.

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

    Them CO's cracking up! And I can assure you that there are other inmates waiting for their door to be unlocked while that naked body is in the shower! Lol

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

    Right!! Because at the end of the day, the guards on the floor and whomever was in that key booth knew what was happening. They controlled that entire thing. Unfortunately someone will lose their job and I hate that.

  • TaylorFinallyMadeIt

    That was nothing. He is still in jail getting beat. When that arse go to (prison) its gone get real!!! He won't make it there

  • NovemberFling

    Same thing happened to Jeffrey Dahmer's when he was met with his timely, well deserve demise.

  • eljjai

    should have rammed him in the brown eye.

  • Dee

    I wish they would have broke that bitch's neck. Maybe next time.

  • yoni

    Stafford is about to get ALL the Top Ramen and Lil Debbie honeybuns. AWL of'em.

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Ive watched plenty of prisons movies,episodes and documentries to know about the whyt ppl gangs in there.he gone have to get on sumbody team...cuz ive seen OZ...and it aint fixin to get more merciful?

  • Mizz76

    I don't think he's going to make it in there... but he made his bed and now he must lay in it!!

  • LeBrick James

    Yup. If they put him in a prison cell with Pookie and Raekwon things will get interesting real quick.

  • SameoleJ

    Went to go find Fukks to give...this is the message I got

  • SameoleJ

    He gonna get anonymous care packages and all!!

  • SameoleJ

    So you saying even if he gotta be somebody wife.....he better start prepping that booty now?

  • SameoleJ

    Right!!

  • DiamondsDiet

    He's cute. I wish he wasn't poor and racist.
    What a waste of a handsome face.

  • yoni

    Gone shutdown the commissary.

  • SameoleJ

    So you like people who are dead in the eyes?! Um, okay!

  • SameoleJ

    George is trying to die, but he is too much of a coward to do it himself.

  • Phuck_trump

    What? Cute where? Trumps areshole probably looks better than Dylann. Early wake and bake gotcha huh?

  • DiamondsDiet

    I said he was handsome I didn't say I liked him

  • DiamondsDiet

    IDC what you think nor do I care what Trump's arsehole looks like.

  • Pamela

    He should have watched Shawshenk Redemption before he went around murdering folks. Fool.

  • Pamela

    In what world is this fool cute, mouse-looking cracker

  • DiamondsDiet

    I don't engage in emotional conversations. I don't care about anything outside of what I think and feel. Therefore the rise youre seeking to get out of me won't happen. Have a good day.

  • Pamela

    The mouse-looking cracker part was referring to this Roof guy, not you. Perhaps I structured my sentence all wrong. I apologise.

  • DiamondsDiet

    No need to apologize. What he did was despicable and you're angry. I know me complimenting the looks of an evil person will trigger some people to feel upset. I get why you said what you said and Im not white.

  • JustB

    He only got punched in the face...that's not taking a beating

  • Queen Liz

    People should have arrested this dude the moment he got that haircut! I mean come on! There are clues to one's self demise and after he got that haircut it was clear he was gonna do something crazy! No person in their right mind would get that done to themselves and be sane at the same damn time!

  • Toni ToniToni

    Exactly. When the HEADLINE reads "GZ, the Kid Killer, Rapist, Racist and bigot, has been K*****D" then it'll be a nice read.
    His soul is JUST UGLY and MEAN! P.O.S.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Toni ToniToni

    This P.O.S. deserves no special treatment. he's been getting it since DAY ONE. he continues to get to HAVE IT HIS FRIGGIN WAY and it is sickening.

    That lack of MELANIN privilege he has is sickening.

    Hope he gets wollymopped everyday for the rest of his PATHETIC and HATEFUL LIFE!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Famelous posted the Staffer's inmate info for donations. I just may need to donate to him for tagging this lil racist bastid.

  • Mesha Johnson

    Right they just putting it out in the public this time. He needs slow torture.

  • Mesha Johnson

    Look like a reject 3 Stoodge.

  • LeBrick James

    I bet he'll have at least $500 on his commissary account by the end of the day. He's about to be richest inmate in that jail.

  • Mesha Johnson

    Looking for my Oz DVD Pack

  • LeBrick James

    Last time I looked, white folks donated over $300,000 for Zimmerman's legal fees.

    If somebody sets up a GoFundMe page for this dude, I might drop $20 on there for the brotha.

  • TOO REAL

    Please he's a murderer. Why is tax payers money used to protect him. Put all criminals together and let them deal with each other instead of innocent people on the street.

  • DownSouthZeta

    I wish karma finished the job.
