In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly analyzed the horrific South Carolina church shooting. 

The man accused of killing nine people during a prayer meeting Wednesday night in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church made his first court appearance today. 

A judge issued 21-year-old Dylann Roof a $1 million bond after family members of those murdered were able to speak to him in court.  

O'Reilly questioned how people like Roof can be stopped from committing such heinous crimes. 

"As Talking Points stated last night, we live in a free country where crazy people are allowed to roam free until they do something heinous," O'Reilly said. "Everybody who knew Dylann Roof understood he was an unstable, racist individual, but you can't do anything to a person like that until he or she commits a crime."

He asserted that's the price Americans pay for freedom.

"It is long past time for all Americans to demand honesty from our leadership," O'Reilly quipped. 

He noted that President Barack Obama played "the anti-gun card" yesterday. O'Reilly said even though Obama's hometown of Chicago has "stringent anti-gun laws," the "gun-crime situation" remains out of control in the city.

"Talking Points urges all decent Americans to understand that there is evil among us and there is no solution to that evil," he stated. "All we can do is try to minimize and isolate the actions of disturbed individuals like Roof."
