Does it matter what Roof did? Yes. But it also matters that the FBI is give those opportunities out.
Wow, you are so off on everything.

If the guy was incompetent because of age, it is up to his parents to control him. If the guy is incompetent due to mental disease or defect, then when the State finds out, the State files for a guardianship and controls him (and that's only if it's a long term, untreatable incompetence). A person can have as many whacked out beliefs as he wants, post to Instagram in whatever costume he wants, and as long as he isn't an immediate threat to others or himself, he's allowed to do what he wants to do and think what he wants to think.

The FBI has nothing to do with it. The FBI only becomes involved when there's a violation of federal laws. Thoughts are not a violation of federal laws. Possession of firearms are not a violation of federal laws (by most people). Dressing up in costume is not a violation of federal law. Having delusional beliefs is not a violation of federal laws. Having horrible beliefs about race is not a violation of federal law. Sitting in a church is not a violation of federal law. Sitting in a church with a gun is not a violation of federal law.

Shooting people - that's a violation of federal law.
It's also a violation of state law, but you're not maintaining the State had any responsibility in this, just the feds.

You really need to look at your statements.
