(Newser) – From anybody else, it might have passed as just a stupid and ugly comment. From the sister of a racist mass shooter, it was seen as highly disturbing. Morgan Roof, younger sister of convicted killer Dylann Roof, was taken into custody on drug and weapon charges Wednesday after posting on Snapchat about National Walkout Day at her South Carolina high school, the State reports. "Your walking out for the allowed time of 17min, they are letting you do this, nothing is gonna change what tf you think it's gonna do?" she said of the protest against gun violence. "I hope it's a trap and y'all get shot we know it's fixing to be nothing but black people walkin out anyway."

Roof, an 18-year-old student at AC Flora High School in Richland County, was arrested after a school resource officer was told she was carrying marijuana, a knife, and pepper spray, CNN reports. She was given a $5,000 bond on charges of simple possession of marijuana and two counts of carrying weapons on school grounds, WIS reports. Under bond conditions, Roof, whose older brother murdered nine black parishioners at a Charleston church in 2015, is banned from returning to the school. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott praised school administrators for avoiding a "potential tragedy."
