12:00 pm
lots of big breaking news happening. krystal, what do you got? >> indeed. the 21-year-old man who confessed to killing nine people in that historic south carolina church just appeared in court and so for the first time we are hearing that killer's voice. >> mr. roof is charged with nine counts of murder and one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of the crime. what is your age? >> 21. >> you're 21 years. are you employed? >> no, sir. >> you're unemployed that the time? >> yes, sir. >> thank you. >> sources tell nbc news that roof told police he almost didn't go through with it because everyone at the prayer meeting was so nice to him. he prayed alongside the group for nearly an hour. this snapchat video posted by the youngest victim says that they have confirmed with several of sanders' friends appears to show roof at the bible study session sitting quietly. nbc news did not confirm the
12:01 pm
authenticity of the that video but roof told investigators he had to, quote, go through with his mission. the woman who spotted him believes that it was divine intervention leading to his arrest. >> i had seen the pictures of the car and the pictures of the -- the suspect. and i had paid more attention to him than i probably normally would for some reason. i don't know but i tell you now i believe it was the lord. it was god helping me to -- so i could do what i did. >> msnbc's adam reiss in charleston. several vigils are planned again today and we heard from the family members of several victims including children of sharonda coleman singleton. tell us how this is bringing the community closer together. >> reporter: she was talking about divine intervention. when she was the one that
12:02 pm
located him up in shelby, north carolina. well, there was by some people's thoughts divine intervention right here right as the hearing was happening, a huge crowd massed here in front of the church. they started singing and crying, shaking hands with each other, black and white. it was an incredible moment. back into the courtroom, the judge was emotional. the victims were emotional. the judge talked about how this community has big hearts, we're a community, we are a loving community. we touch all victims' families, not only the victims' families but he talked about the family of roof and that we'll reach out to them, as well. you talk about the victims. so many of them said in krort we forgive you. one woman said we welcomed you into our church to pray with us. what you did, every bone in my body is hurting. take a listen. >> you hurt a lot of people. may god forgive you. and i forgive you. >> we welcomed you wednesday
12:03 pm
night in our bible study with open arms. may god have mercy on you. >> i, too, thank you on behalf of my family for not allowing hate to win. for me, i'm a work in progress. and i acknowledge that i am very angry but one thing that depayne joined in in our family is that we are the family that love built! >> reporter: now, roof didn't show much expression throughout. he answered a couple questions. how old he was. he said he was unemployed. the judge said he doesn't have the authority to set bond for the nine murder counts but in a very angry voice he set bond for $1 million on the possession of an illegal weapon during the commission of a crime. so what we're waiting on now is the press conference with the prosecutor and that's going to be very interesting to see, will we learn more about the motive? more details about the commission of the crime? most importantly, not only here
12:04 pm
locally but for federal prosecutors, of a possible hate crime. what was his motive, thinking, what kind of associations did he have? white supremacist groups to be affiliated with? a 21-year-old shy youth who reached out with such anger and committed such a violent crime. so a lot of questions to be answered and maybe when the prosecutor speaks we might find out some answers. krystal? >> indeed, i have never seen anything like that. the prosecutor is speaking now. so we'll go to that live. this is scarlet wilson who is prosecuting this case that we are getting ready to hear from out in front of the courthouse. >> all right. is everybody ready? first of all, i want to thank everyone from across the nation for wrapping their arms around this community. i also want to thank the mother
12:05 pm
emanuel congregation for their grace and strength throughout these dark hours. just a few minutes ago, what you saw, what the rest of the nation saw was the spirit of charleston, the true spirit of charleston and while there may be nine victims, we are one family. make no mistake about that. obviously, it's been a long week here. a lot of people have done a lot of good work. first of all, i want to thank my colleagues in north carolina. the d.a. mike miller in cleveland county. one of his his assistants, sally cur by-turner who worked very hard yesterday. i also want to introduce to you my team. my chief deputy bruce durant. assistant solicitor chad simpson working with me on this case. law enforcement is still investigating but we are moving in to the prosecution phase of
12:06 pm
this. we have many great leaders in this state who have been there for us. and have been here for you. we are so grateful for mayor riley. governor haley. senator scott. they have been great leaders through this dark time. as a chief prosecutor, i'm not here to pontificate or to predict. there are many who and will do that for you, i'm sure. as for me and my staff, we will serve. we will serve justice. my mission is to bring justice for this community and especially for the victims in this case. and we will do it efficiently and effectively and we'll do it behind the scenes. so that we can be successful. we will work with our partners at the department of justice. they were with us all day yesterday. they have been here for us at
12:07 pm
the start. i had another meeting this morning with the department of justice. make no mistake, we are standing shoulder to shoulder, side by side and we will work together through this prosecution. i know it's frustrating for you all because you want so much information. but as we move through this prosecution, the rules are different than when they -- when we have an investigation and we have an emergency situation. the rules limit what i can say, what i should say and i intend to abide by those rules. and i want to tell you a little bit about a phone call i received about four or five weeks ago. i knew the caller but i didn't know him well, and he said to me, he said, i'm sorry i hadn't reached out before now. but i want you to know we're with you. and i want you to know that we appreciate how you're doing
12:08 pm
this. i want you to know that we are behind your team all the way. that call was from senator pinckney. he wasn't asking for a favor. he wasn't asking for inside information. he just made a call to someone that he barely knew but that who he appreciated and he had a deep understanding for our need to work behind the scenes quietly for a successful prosecution. and those words are extroomly inspiring to me now. and inspiring to my staff. as we move forward with this prosecution. i know, again, that you have many questions about what's going to happen and we will keep you informed as the rules allow. but my first obligation, my primary obligation is to these victims' families. they deserve to know the facts
12:09 pm
first. they deserve to be involved in any conversations regarding the death penalty. but now is not the time to have those conversations with them. they need the time and the space to mourn and to grieve and we're going to give them that. again, we certainly will keep you informed as milestones are reached in this case. as decisions are made. but our work is going to be done in the courtroom. we really appreciate you being here. i'm not going to take questions today. i believe chief mullen would like to address you briefly. >> thank you, solicitor. as the solicitor said, we moved into a different phase of this investigation at this point. we appreciate all of your assistance yesterday. and the night before. we were getting a lot of information out as a result of your efforts. we'll continue to be as open as transparent as we can with you. understanding that now when we finish up investigative leads
12:10 pm
outstanding at this point we are not only working with the solicitor and as she said the department of justice and not giving out information as quickly and as freely as we were yesterday because now what our goal is, since we have now captured and have the individual in custody that was responsible for this very terrible tragedy, our role now and our primary focus now is a successful prosecution. and we're not going to jeopardize that by releasing information prematurely nor are we going to jeopardize that by not following up and finishing every lead possible before that information is released if it can be so i appreciate your cooperation and your patience. i'll tell you that in advance because i know that some of you have been asking for things today and our pio is working hard to try to get as much information as we can. understanding that at this particular point there are a lot of investigative leads happening
12:11 pm
here in the area and also happening in other parts of the state so we'll continue to work with you and do the best we can to get you information to help you inform the public and at the same time make sure that we do not jeopardize this prosecution which at this time is our primary goal. thank you. >> thank you. >> solicitor, will you allow a procedural question? >> you have been listening to the charleston police chief and the lead prosecutor there in the case against dylann roof. not a lot that they can tell us about the case and the investigation at this point but the prosecutor referencing the very emotional scene of family members in the courtroom earlier said that that was the true spirit of charleston and end katding they're working very closely together with the doj. at this point i want to bring in michael german, a former fbi agent specializing in domestic
12:12 pm
terrorism. nice to have you with us today. >> thanks for having me. >> there's a lot that's disturbing about this case, obviously, but one thing that's particularly disturbing is the age of this young man. just 21 years old. as i was looking at back at the stats of hate groups in this country, they really spiked after president obama's election. that would have been a time when this young man was coming of age. they have since receded a bit over the past two years. how do trends like that impact the potential for violent acts such as what we saw? >> so it's difficult because there's not a lot of very good data collection and we don't know a lot about the scope of this movement. we often rely on private advocacy groups like the anti-defamation league often getting information from the media. so when it kind of like shark attacks in florida when the media is covering these things, you tend to see what looks like a spike.
12:13 pm
when really it's just looking at what is an unfortunately persistent problem within our society. and if you look at the actual numbers of deaths and injuries from violent attacks, it is consistent over time. so fortunately we are talking about relatively small numbers so, you know, an addition of ten in a particular year would double the amount from the next year so it looks like a spike but over time it's fairly consistent. but it does reflect a continuing problem throughout our society and something that law enforcement obviously has to be better at understanding. >> was this shooting an act of terrorism? >> i think it fits the definition. the fbi set out for an act of terrorism so i think it's inappropriate to say a group doing xyz is terrorism and a different group doing the same isn't so i think it's fairly called terrorism. when i worked domestic
12:14 pm
terrorism, against neo-nazi groups, we called it domestic terrorism. obviously, the criminal charges that were brought were about the underlying criminal activity. the trafficking in illegal weapons. the manufacture of explosives and conspiracies to commit acts of violence. >> you did undercover work as part of the history you alluded to and we heard that there's investigations and won't necessarily hear the details. will surveillance of white supremacist groups be part of the action plan here? and if it is, what would it zbleeld. >> i think you have to be careful. the undercover technique is intrusive. we have to be careful how you use it and only where there is reasonable indication of criminality. you know? we talk upwards of a thousand different groups. obviously not all those groups engaged in violence of what i
12:15 pm
found working undercover within the movement is many groups oppose violence and don't think it's an effective methodology. you can see law enforcement overreach if they target groups with the ideology. but when you look at a criminal act, there are often ten kathie lees that come out from that and first concern is a broader conspiracy involved here. even if there's not a conspiracy there might be other underlying criminal activity to bring them to other groups or other individuals that are engaged in similar conduct. that may in some circumstances warrant undercover activities. there are many law enforcement techniques for investigating this. and it's certainly possible to use proactive techniques like undercover to prevent this type of thing from happening and that's what my cases did. >> right. one of the things that we hear thrown around sort of casually is that dylann roof to have done
12:16 pm
this must be crazy, must be insane because it's so hard for us to comprehend an act of such pure evil and hatred. when you oklook at him, does he seem like a crazy person or does it seem like someone who knew what they were doing and exactly what the consequences of their actions would be? >> so i think it's important that, number one, we recognize that there is an assumption of innocence and we have to wait for the investigation to play out and the investigation will look at a number of different elements including whether there were any mental health issues. if you look at acts of terrorism and people commit acts of terrorism, there's a low incidence of mental illness. obviously, their decisions are troubling. with mass shooters, there's actually a higher incidence of mental illness within those groups when you look at the profiles. but what's clear from all of
12:17 pm
those studies is there is no pattern or profile that can be used to predict who's going to commit an act of violence and who isn't. >> all right. michael, thank you for being with us. we appreciate your expertise on this issue. >> thank you for having me. now we'll switch gears here a bit. we have toure live for us in oakland. what have you got, toure? >> all right. thanks, krystal. i'm here for the live growing hope show, an exciting day in this city and not just because of the party downtown. for the new nba champion golden state warriors. but past two weeks we have been building up to this moment, featuring stories about mentoring, about young people, about efforts to get them the young people in this town the jobs of the future. this is the culmination of the coverage, yes we code is holding a town hall here in oakland. the conversation with community members of all ages that you see here behind me centers on a
12:18 pm
question. how do we bridge the divide of oakland and silicon valley? companies like facebook and google are just a 37-minute drive away and seems like a universe away when it comes to creating opportunity and getting jobs. yes we code has a plan to mentor young people here and get them into high-tech careers over there. this hour, we'll hear from the mayor of oakland about what the city is doing to help, a young man proves what the possible and talk to the folks behind me about what they think. we'll begin with the challenge. joining me now, three extraordinary people. kwami ankune, maxine williams and mohammed abdullah, a rising senior at oakland technical high school dreaming working as being a software developer and grew up in yemen working as a farmer. came to america knowing no english and now on the way
12:19 pm
hopefully toward joining silicon valley. mohammed, tell them, what do you want to do in silicon valley and how is this program helping you? >> i want to get rid of all -- today certain more tech industries are focused heavily on privileged areas and not low underserved communities and my hope for oakland is for tech industries to begin to hire more people from the low underserved communities and to do to that tech industries generate more profits and help strengthen our community and our economy. >> there you go, maxine. it is a win-win for facebook and oakland. how do we get mohammed and people like him into a company like facebook? >> well, part of it is we have to do our job in letting mohammed and people like him know that we want them. the part of the problem is an assumption of a divide and from our perspective doesn't exist. we want adds much cognitive diversity as we can get. people of different backgrounds,
12:20 pm
experiences, skills. because we are building a product for the whole world to use and not going to build a most relevant products without people who are of the world so from where we sit we're desperate to find more talent just like you, people from oakland, who can come and contribute to the building of our products and serving the clients all over the world. >> how do we create more young people who are aware, that the facebooks and the googles and the apples are open to them, and that the idea of coding is for them? >> absolutely. we appreciate that and just want to thank you all for giving us this platform. this is how we do it. yes we code is exposure, skills and then a pathway. so the first thing is exactly what you're saying. young people need to know there's opportunities, extraordinary opportunities in technology. we do it through major events throughout the country and grass root organizations and this platform. beyond that is skills.
12:21 pm
you have boot camp training programs in the country within three, four, five months get a young person no coding training and get them in a job making $65,000 plus a year so we have ultimately that pipeline to places like a facebook or a google and quite frankly start-ups and entrepreneurship, as well. >> mohammed, when i was your age, it didn't occur to me that i could work in a technology job. whatever teld you that this was possible for you? >> well, first, it all started with kilima priforce. he reuted me into a two-year program that trains black youth in technology creation, entrepreneurial thinking and leadership skills and going into the hidden genius project i lernled a lot with technology. and now i build my own software.
12:22 pm
>> maxine, is it possible to get this young man who's building his own software, can we get him into facebook today and a job right now? >> i have given him a job offer. >> you have? >> as we were preparing to get on stage, yeah. >> yeah, yeah? >> what we have been doing for people like him is creating more opportunities for them to learn at facebook. you'll find if you have been in the population that traditionally didn't have the exposure and experience and opportunity then soft skills can be just as much as a problem as hard skills and bringing him on to campus, we have facebook university and created for fresh men where we are definitely looking for minorities, women, for the people who have been underreptded and they come on board for the summer. well paid. you get accommodation, transportation, all the food you can eat and then we have mentors working with you on real projects learning about all of the data structures, all of the computer science skills you need. the hard stuff. also, how to navigate a world like facebook so when you're
12:23 pm
ready, get through the college education, when you are ready, you come back for the next internship sophomore year and then an offer to come back for good and start building things and working on teams so we know that some of it has to be investing earlier on to get the right skills because for a long time education has been focused on getting you a degree but not necessarily a degree that translates to a job. you have to get very practical about it. and in silicon valley, we are practic practical. >> and what you think the world needs right now or what you think facebook needs right now is more young black and brown people and putting out a sign. we are open. we are looking for you. we are hiring. so please come knock on our door. >> absolutely. >> kwame is helping. mohammed, i think you'll get there. thank you all for this time. we'll have more. thank you so much for the work you're doing. >> you're welcome. >> helping people drive towards success. still ahead, what the mayor of oakland is saying about what she wants to do to connect the

as we head into the week, charleston is a place of mourning. but also, of banding together. historic churches throughout the city will ring their bells simultaneously sunday morning as a support for the emanuel ame church and the nine shooting victims. national court reporter tremendous main lee in south
12:28 pm
carolina for us. tremendous main, i looked at the we believe site for the church and found the announcements page heartbreaking. it is a realtime place for community members to get together, there's choir practice set for tuesday. senior citizens are meeting for bingo and activities and heading into this sunday, do you have any sense of how services might be held and how people cope? >> reporter: through the grief in the air here, time and again there's a treatment of resilience. that this city will not be broken by what many described as shear terrorism. terrorism on the historic african-american church and the entire community and so there is a sense that the congregants and the community want to push through the grief but i spoke to a young man saying how much further can we bend without breaking? how much more can the black community take? you have the killing of walter
12:29 pm
scott. the killing of nine people described as mentors and spiritual leaders. i spoke to a half brother of myra thompson saying she was supposed to be giving up teaching bible study on wednesday nights because she was ill and only there because they couldened find anyone else and she was a victim and so again it's still so early. people are grappling with the trauma and grief of what happened on wednesday night. but rest assured, if any community could push back, if you listen to people in the community, it is this community. we'll see on sunday service. i'm sure there will be a mixture of mourning and also spiritual uplift. i spoke to joseph darby, a vice president of the naacp here. and he said if ever there was a time for people of faith to lean on that faith, it is now. back to you guys. >> tremaine lee, thank you for that report. president obama will address a conference of the nations mayors and many watching charleston's mayor lead his city through this
12:30 pm
tragedy. >> charleston is a loving community and one where our citizens of all races and backgrounds and all neighborhoods work very closely together. >> struggle to address a shooting like this is something president obama has had to address at least 14 different times during his 7 years in office. the latest in the briefing room thursday. >> to say our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families and their community doesn't say enough to convey the heartache and the sadness and the anger that we feel. >> each time something like charleston happens, a nation does retreat to the perspective political corners instead of having the uncomfortable conversations we might about policy, the challenges. and jon stewart was talking about this saying there's nothing funny about it.
12:31 pm
>> i don't want to get into the political argument of the guns and things but what blows my mind is the disparity of response between when we think people that are foreign are going to kill us and us killing ourselves. they're already using the nuanced blang wage of lack of effort for this. this is a terrorist attack. >> erica nuti, thank you for joining us. >> good to be here. >> this is a very tough story for the country, tough for everyone involved, tough to look at, tough to cover. if there is a ray of hope here, stewart is talking about whether we are clear and fair and consistent as we deal with these things and clearly an open debate. a ray of hope this afternoon. i wonder if you comment on is watching that response on the ground from victims' families, from other people who knew and didn't know those folks,
12:32 pm
gathering, singing. erica this is a shooter who said he wanted to start some kind of quote race war and he has been greeted with a failure of that, a rejection of that in a community torn, of course, by racial divisions in the past but has come together so strongly and peacefully throughout. >> well, i think if you're looking to start a war, going to people who are in prayer who are observing moments of peace may not be the way to do it. i think there's something about this community together when they experienced this tragedy, this group that was -- that became the victims but then, also, broader respect for a church as a place of solace and a place of kind of coming together. i think there's a -- this idea to start -- he would start a race war starts to touch on things that maybe a bit uncomfortable for a lot of people. you hear people saying i don't want to get political about this.
12:33 pm
you know what? politics reflects our country and politics can be a good outlet for our country to solve probables. i wish i was surprised by this shooting but i'm not. and it's because the last time we had a mass shooting we did nothing. and we come and we try to support these victims but we're not supporting them enough to push through some of these uncomfortable conversations about perhaps the southern strategy that the republican party had under nixon where they were exploiting some of the local racial tensions, about the civil -- i guess the civil war and supposedly the confederate flag which didn't get risen above the charleston state capitol until 1962 until civil rights issues were front and center. not digging in and really taking these challenges and tackling them politically is probably one of the biggest problems we have. >> you know, as ari was saying, we watched that scene unfold in the courthouse earlier and it
12:34 pm
was very hard to watch, even as it was incredibly beautiful and incredibly powerful. the family members coming out and telling this killer that they forgive him. and the love that was manifest there was like nothing that i have ever seen before and i think if we could go forward in that spirit there's a lot that can be done but you mentioned the confederate flag and not central to what we're talking about here but the very different way that is that symbol is viewed, i think, is emblem attic of how it is to make any progress. let's take a listen to just on this channel today some of the different views that we heard from legislators in south carolina, first a state rep, a democratic state rep that craig mel sin talked to. >> again, i think it symbolizes hate. although some argue it symbolizes heritage.
12:35 pm
we have all kinds of buildings across south carolina with folk who are doing the civil war and thereafter. symbolize hate across the state. that's the beginning place. we begin to remove those symbols. begin to teach people how to live together and move along. we have to move the state forward. >> is it time to sort of bury the confederate flag? >> i don't know. i mean, that's opening up pandora's box. i mean, so what you have with confederate flag is a political compromise and as we both know, you don't have perfection. both sides end up a little bit unhappy. >> for what it's worth, josh earnest said that the confederate flag belongs in a museum. not hanging at a state house. you know, you look at the confederate flag. republicans say it's about southern pride typically. democrats say it's racist. black people see it as a racist
12:36 pm
emblem. white people tend to see it as southern pride. how do we move forward with a divergent view of the country and the world? >> the south has a lot of things to be proud of. if they want to celebrate of southern pride, bake a pecan pie. this is not a symbol of your great, great, great uncle who in the best of circumstances not fighting the civil war because of slavely but fighting for other reasons. that's not what happened in 1962 when that flag was put back up over the state capitol. to kind of wash it away and say that this is about, you know, a broader heritage, it is not. it is about a heritage of 1962 which is when the civil rights movement was going on and those issues i don't think are complex. i think they're actually very settled. if you think that people shouldn't be served at lunch counters because of the color of their skin because it's complex for you.
12:37 pm
we need to move forward and takes political leaders to sometimes push the country further and forward. president johnson a southern white president and he pushed this country forward on that. so i think this kind of hesitance to look at it because it might make some people upset or might mean facing the fact of you're insensitive your entire life that might be hard. it's hard to say i'm wrong. breaking up is hard to do but i think it's time to break up with the confederate flag. >> turning back to president obama's remarks, more of what he had to say in response to this massacre. >> at some point we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. it doesn't happen in other places with this kind of frequency. and it is in our power to do something about it. >> you know, writing for "the new yorker today, david remnick
12:38 pm
said it was not random or merely tragic. they were pointedly racist, they were political. obama made it clear that the cynical actions of so many politicians when it came to the refusal to cross the nra and enact strict gun laws, their unwillingness to combat racism in any way that puts votes in risk have bloody consequences. political ramifications for this event, can we see a more honest discussion on the policy issues? >> i hope so. 92% of gun owners support background checks. very simple thing. there was a bill that came to vote in the senate in 2013, 54 senators supported stronger gun laws. that's enough to pass. if the laws, if the rules of the senate were being used as intended we would have had change after sandy hook. we have had none. hopefully the fear that this -- the nra or gun owners will come after you, i'm here to tell you, republicans, it's okay.
12:39 pm
it's safe. 92% of americans don't agree on much. we agree on this. >> erica, thank you for joining us. as we mentioned, president obama is addressing the conference of mayors in san francisco today. coming up, we'll hear from oakland's mayor about her vision for her city, something she's calling tech-w uity. with reddi wip, fruit never sounded more delicious, with 15 calories per serving and real cream, the sound of reddi wip is the sound of joy. can you tell what makes them so different?. did you hear that sound? of course you didn't. you're not using ge software like the rig on the right. it's listening and learning how to prevent equipment failures, predict maintenance needs, and avoid problems before they happen. you don't even need a cerebral cortex to understand which is better. now, two things that are exactly the same have never been more different. ge software. get connected. get insights. get optimized.
