Fantastic! Now that this disgusting murderer has been sentenced, how quick can it be carried out?
Let’s not have this guy’s sentence hanging over his head.
The quicker it’s carried out, the better!
Convicted murderer and white supremacist Dylann Roof has been sentenced to death for the cold blooded 2015 massacre of nine black Charleston churchgoers after he told the jury on Tuesday that he would do it all again.
The 12-person jury deliberating the penalty phase of the trial spent about three hours making the decision for the 22-year-old’s sentence. The jury was made up of nine white people and three African Americans.
Roof stared straight ahead as the judge read through the jury’s verdict findings before announcing his death sentence, local media reported on social media.
Moments after his sentence was announced, Roof stood to speak to the judge and requested court-appointed new lawyers to help him file a motion for a new trial, as his current attorneys, David Bruck and Kim Stevens sat beside him, The Post and Courier reported.
U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel told the 22-year-old white supremacist a significant amount ‘has been spent on the current legal team that he sidelined for the trial’s penalty phase’ so that he could represent himself.
Gergel said he would ‘be strongly disinclined’ to bring in a new team of lawyers at this point.
However, he said that he would listen to any motions that Roof would like to make during Wednesday proceedings, which will begin at 9am…
…Roof sat for 40 minutes with parishioners gathered for a Bible study meeting on June 17, 2015, before opening fire as they closed their eyes to pray, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Richardson said.
‘He’d come with a hateful heart and a Glock 45,’ the prosecutor said during his two-hour final argument.
‘This was cold and calculated, planned for months, researched for years.’
Jurors again viewed photos of the bodies of victims Clementa Pinckney, 41, the church’s pastor and a state senator; DePayne Middleton Doctor, 49; Sharonda Coleman Singleton, 45; Cynthia Hurd, 54; Susie Jackson, 87; Ethel Lance, 70; Myra Thompson, 59; Daniel Simmons Sr., 74; and Tywanza Sanders, 26.
Roof’s offer to plead guilty in exchange for life in prison, his cooperation with authorities and his lack of a violent past did not outweigh the aggravating factors of the crime, Richardson said.
‘What’s wrong here is the calculated racism, the choice to target a church, particularly the people in a church,’ Richardson said.
‘What’s wrong here is precisely why this is a case that justifies the death penalty.’
Roof still faces a trial on murder charges in state court, where prosecutors also are seeking the death penalty.

Maybe all the white supremacist assholes that murder innocents should represent themselves if it’s this effective!
This crime was so disgusting it’s amazing it took the jury hours to come to an agreement.

There are people that are just too evil to live, and this white supremacist asshole is certainly one of them.
