South Carolina Senate votes to banish Confederate flag to museum

A Confederate flag stands in front of the South Carolina State House in ColumbiaBy Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - South Carolina's Senate passed legislation Tuesday to remove the Confederate battle flag from the state house, where it has flown for five decades despite being viewed by many as a symbol of slavery. A bill to banish the flag from the Capitol grounds to a museum easily passed a third and final vote in the Senate by a 36-3 margin and is now headed for debate in the state's House of Representatives. The legislation, deemed a non-starter only months ago, has garnered strong bipartisan support after the June 17 killings of nine African-American churchgoers during Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in the port city of Charleston, about two hours south of the state capital Columbia.     Photos of the white man charged in the shooting showed him posing with the flag on a website that also carried a racist manifesto.

Roof had already been charged by state warrants with the nine murder counts and one count of possessing a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
