The Charleston newspaper put the 9 victims — not the alleged killer — on the front page

Newspapers around the world gave front-page space on Sunday to the racist manifesto believed to be from Dylann Roof, who police say killed nine people at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina.

But not the front page of the Post and Courier, Charleston's newspaper, which made a powerful statement by focusing on the nine victims who lost their lives:

(Post and Courier)

It's a stark and lovely memorial to nine people whose deaths have often been overshadowed by the focus on the man accused of their murder.
