#DylannRoof Verdict: Death For Church Massacre [VIDEO]

It took less than three hours for the jury to return a unanimous verdict of death against convicted Charleston murderer Dylann Roof.

Roof showed absolutely no remorse in his closing comment to the jury. He had represented himself during the penalty phase of the trial.

Earlier Tuesday, Roof, 22, had stood before the jury and delivered a halting and cryptic closing argument Tuesday suggesting that the prosecution “hates me” and that his murders of nine parishioners at a Bible study meeting in 2015 was not motivated by hatred of black people.

“Anyone that thinks I’m filled with hatred has no idea what real hatred is,” said Roof, a self-described white supremacist who has said he hoped his high-profile killings would incite a race war in America. “They don’t know anything about me. They don’t know what real hatred looks like. They think they do, but they don’t.”

“I would say that in this case, the prosecution and anyone else who hates me, are the ones that have been misled,” Roof said in a soft voice, standing before the eight women and four men who, shortly after, were to begin deliberating whether he will be sentenced to death or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Roof pointed out to the jury that in his confession to the FBI, “I told them I had to do it. … Obviously that’s not true. Nobody made me do it.”

Without directly explaining his meaning, Roof then said, “I felt like I had to do it, and I still feel like I had to do it.”

Roof also noted that he had a right to ask the jury to spare his life, but “I’m not sure what good that would do.”

The jury agreed. Pleading for mercy probably would have done him no good, but it might have showed that there is a shred of humanity still in Roof. He showed none.

The jury found no reason to spare his life.

May his name be forever blotted out, while the memories of those he senselessly murdered be a blessing to their families.

    The correct verdict/sentence for the wrong reason. He’s a white guy. A black or muslim would never receive the same. In fact, they’d be eligible for parole after a relatively short time.
