Dylann Roof Sentenced to Death for Charleston Church Murders

Dylann Roof, who killed nine people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina back in 2015, has been sentenced to death by a federal jury.

The jury found Roof guilty on 33 counts for the attack and they came to the verdict for the death penalty after three hours of deliberations, according to the New York Times.

Roof says that he still feels like he had to commit the murders.

“In my confession to the FBI I told them that I had to do it, and obviously that’s not really true… I didn’t have to do anything,” he said during the closing argument. “But what I meant when I said that was, I felt like I had to do it, and I still do feel like I had to do it.”

It’s important to remember the lives of the nine people who were killed in this awful shooting. Go to CNN.com now to read about the amazing work they had accomplished.

    Good. It was the right decision. If you’re not sorry for killing nine people in cold blood, you deserve the sentence you’re given.

    Because of his hatred for Jews, he’s getting the death penalty. If only he allowed a psychiatrist to diagnose him…but no, the psych profession is an invention of the Jews he said.

  • Do Tell

    Thank you very much, jury! I’ve been waiting for this. I’m for the death penalty in situations like this. We know he did it. He didn’t deny it. He is still filled with hatred and he has shown zero remorse.

    To allow a murderer like this to live is telling the world his single life of evil is more important than the 9 innocent lives he took.

    Roof wears a childish haircut and he also wore childish looking shoes, I believe to make people think he’s just a wayward, confused kid and to garner sympathy for him. But I heard him speaking on tape and he sounds anything but innocent.

    Thank God justice will be served here. Hopefully as he awaits his fate, he will have a change of heart in prison. But even if he later asks for forgiveness, he still must pay the price for what he chose to do.

    Good news, but I have this feeling that after 6 months in prison, he is going to petition for a new trial. Just a baaad feeling.
