Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Perry on Friday suggested the fatal shooting of nine black people by a white male at a South Carolina was a drug-induced “accident”.
In an interview, the former Texas governor said he didn’t know if the tragedy was an “act of terror”, but acknowledged it was “a crime of hate” when asked about the mass shooting at Emanuel AME church.
But Perry then pivoted to drugs, saying they were quote the "real issue to be talked about”.
The Republican said that although there are not enough details yet, he thinks drugs were responsible in the shooting.
Some acquaintances of the 21 year old gunman Dylann Storm Roof, have said he used drugs – a detail that has been seized upon by conservative conspiracy websites such as Infowars.
